Recorded on September 30, 2013
Which social media should your legal aid organization use, and why, to effectively communicate with your varied audiences? Your social media approach will depend on what you want to accomplish and whom you want to reach. How do you work through all the possibilities, hype, and data to decide which channels actually make sense for your organization?
In this webinar, Andrea Berry of Idealware will take the mystery out of social media and walk you through the creation of your own social media strategy, step by step. Based on Idealware's extensive research, she will cover what is actually working for nonprofits, including the strength and weaknesses of each tool. Then you can develop a social media strategy that is effective for your legal aid organization with measureable results.

We are receiving great feedback on this webinar!:
"My most pressing concern was where in the world to start. This webinar helped me to know where I should begin and what I should be thinking about when creating my social media strategy. Since I am going to be doing this from the ground up, having an overall sense of social media use and tools was very helpful."
"Not only is Andrea well-versed in social media, but she has a great grasp on marketing concepts and what motivates people to take an intended action."
"She covered the broad range of tools that are available and answered the question on everyone's mind - what tool is right for me? Although the answer is particular to each organization, she gave the strengths and weaknesses of each tool so that we can think about what is right for us and how to think about implementing its use."
