Linkedin for nonprofits

Guest post by Marissa Wasseluk

Having worked with nonprofit communicators to create social media policies and plans, it has come to my attention Linkedin oftentimes gets overlooked. Many nonprofit communicators know that it’s an important part of a social media plan, but they’re not sure exactly how or why to use it (sound like a familiar conundrum?).

I talked with Bryan Breckenridge, the Account Executive for LinkedIn Nonprofit Solutions about this trend, and expressed the importance of networking both in person and online. Take a look at our conversation!

 

I like to say Linkedin is the “diamond in the social media rough”.

Some advantages to adding Linkedin to your nonprofit’s social media plan:

  • A presence on Linkedin puts your nonprofit in front of new donors
  • It connects corporate donors to your cause
  • It can help you find new possible board members!
  • It’s a new and different social channel that provides new opportunities of exposure!

If you’d like to pick Bryan’s brain about how to add Linkedin to your social media communications and best practices for its use, come say hello to him at Making Media Connections this June 14, 2012, where he’ll be the keynote speaker!

Join us this year at our annual Making Media Connections Conference! You can also join the conversation on Twitter by following @npcommunicator and the #mmc2012 hashtag. Click here to register for the conference!

Working class Hermosa readies for the end of the day. Hermosa is the neighborhood where Puerto Ricans have gathered anew. They’ve moved out from Humboldt Park, leaving […]
