Social Media for Nonprofits: Resources You Can Use

Share the joy

This post is a list of resources that nonprofit leaders might find helpful in launching or improving a social media campaign or general communications initiative.

This weekend, I’ll be giving a presentation on social media for nonprofits at the Alabama Rivers Alliance Water Rally & Watershed Leadership Conference. Rather than put together a handout that will probably be thrown away or lost, I thought I’d share this post that anyone and everyone can use. Look for a separate post that includes details from my talk. I should have that one up early next week, after the conference ends.

  1. Hi Sheree – Excellent post, and thank you so much for the links, I’m honored! I strive to put together a solid collection of resources, so hopefully your readers will find value in these. Cheers!

    • Thanks, Tom, for visiting my site and commenting. I was very impressed by your SEO reference lists and look forward to uncovering more great resources on Webbiquity.

  2. Wow. I bookmarked this so that I can share it with others. Thank you so much. I think this is really a treat for you to share.

    • Thanks, Tammy! I plan to add at least a few more links and resources later this weekend. Honestly, I accidentally published before I was finished with it and decided that leaving updating later would be better than hiding it until I finished.
