Maybe you already set up a Facebook profile and have even braved Twitter, but are you really understanding how to use these tools effectively? We’ll walk you though planning your social media goals and how to measure the outcomes. Whether you are looking to recruit new volunteers, energize existing supporters, inform donors or just market your cause, we’ll talk about ways to get there.
