Building a Social Media Dashboard

Event Date(s): 
October 12, 2011

Join us for a no-cost training on building effective online communications for nonprofits and social justice organizations. This training will be an interactive session to help you build out your online strategy efforts.

Do you know where you are being mentioned online? As the number of valuable eAdvocacy channels grows, tools are needed for tracking how and where a campaign or organization is being mentioned on web sites, blogs, Twitter, Facebook and elsewhere. This session will explain how to create such a tool, enumerate what free and low-cost tools are available, and describe best practices for getting the most value out of such tactical resources.

Coordinating Your Online Communications Channels with a Publishing Matrix

Event Date(s): 
September 20, 2011

Many nonprofits find it confusing to manage and effectively coordinate organizational messages and campaigns across the mind-numbing plethora of social media outlets, blogs and communications channels. This training gives nonprofits a framework in which to look at different communications channels as effective for organizational goals. Participants will learn how online communications tools differ and relate to one another in terms of characteristics like tone, frequency and level of control. In this hands-on workshop, participants put together actual tools that they can use as an organization to inform and structure processes surrounding how, when and why to use their choice of communications channels.

This training also gives participants a structure in which to think of these channels so that it is no longer a huge array of strangely-named tools to learn. Rather, a selection of tools for an organization to choose from to achieve broader organizational goals.
