Social media is a convenient marketing tool that reaches a broad population. For nonprofits looking to use it as an outreach tool, social media offers instantaneous communication and networking advantages at a low cost. As easy as social media is to use – especially compared to old nonprofit marketing standbys like direct mail or phone calls – there are problems that often crop up in its use by both for-profit companies and charitable groups. Because nonprofits rely so critically on creating a meaningful connection with their contributors and other stakeholders, fixing these mistakes is especially important.
Here's a look at a few of the most common errors that nonprofit groups are making on social media and what can be done to fix them:
NYCON members who use First Nonprofit’s programs enjoy enduring savings and improved efficiency. Our association knows that success, because from the beginning, we achieved the same great benefits. Great savings, seamless technology, and responsive service. NYCON highly recommends First Nonprofit’s remarkable unemployment solutions.
We were introduced to First Nonprofit through another housing authority. In our analysis and comparison to what we were paying the State, our first year savings was $5,800 plus. We have been with them since the end of 2008 and I am glad we have been. I consider them an arm of our HR department.
Because INCS advocates for the operating conditions that allow charter public schools to provide high quality public education, partnering with First Nonprofit was an easy decision. First Nonprofit’s unemployment programs provide our member schools two operating elements crucial to their ability to provide high quality public education: savings and budget certainty. Capable, committed teachers are the key to student success. By participating in the unemployment insurance savings plan, charter public schools gain peace of mind and are able to invest more money in their teachers.
Throughout our membership in the Unemployment Savings Program, First Nonprofit understood our demands, community dynamics, and the importance of seamless services; that allowed us to serve our constituents better.
