In response to several requests, we are going to hold two training days next month (April), when in hourly sessions we will cover each of these social media channels. Each session will look at the basics of how to set them up, what sort of content to plan for and develop, and what (mainly free) additional software you can access to help you make the most of your efforts.
The dates – they are up to you bar that they will be on Tuesdays or Thursdays! Please e-mail David with your availability and that does include you being able to bring a ‘team’ as each session will be limited to six people. Pre the event, you’ll get a little bit of preparation ‘homework’ to do and then post the event, you’ll get some feedback and more support.
The first people to ‘apply’ will get their preferred times and dates – we will be looking at offering sessions from 10-11, 11.15-12.15, 2-3, 3.15-4.15 and then 5.30-6.30 – so please e-mail back as soon as you can!
In the meantime, Facebook has just launched a brand new web site to help charities and NFPs make the most from their channel – CLICK HERE to go to the new site – what do you think?
And this is a step-by-step guide to running an e-mail campaign (if you’re all ready to go) or if you want to know all the KPIs etc you need to know – E-mail is still the best way of contacting people.
For those already working with a Twitter account this is a very good guide about tweeting
