If your cause has struggled with creating a social media strategy that works, next week you’ll have an opportunity to hear and ask questions to some of the real innovators of social media in the non-profit space. The Social Media for Nonprofit Conference series comes to Chicago on September 19th. While big conferences may cover rudimentary social media how-tos, this is North America’s premiere non-profit conference that’s dedicated to social media. The series was designed for smaller audiences and held in more intimate settings, so the focus is on first-hand learning from the experts.
Todd Levy of DonorDrive to present.
Todd has been an innovator in fundraising software since 1997 and is the visionary behind DonorDrive Social Fundraising. His presentation Social Fundraising: Best Practices and Key Metrics (given at the opening conference of the series this year in Toronto) was a big hit and he’s been asked to present again in Chicago. Todd gives a profile of today’s changing donors and fundraisers, gives best practices on how to effectively engage them, and reveals stats from DonorDrive that show just how effective this group is at social fundraising.
Among the 10 speakers scheduled for Chicago are:
- McKinzie Kandek, Relationship Manager at LinkedIn
- Amy Ravit Korin, Regional Community Manager at Google+
- Justin Ware, Emmy Winner and Director of Social Media at Bentz Whaley Flessner
What’s amazing about the conference is that all this intel is packed into one very full day. It’s earned an astounding 92% approval rating from the more than 2,500 attendees of the series. If you’re interested in social media for your cause and can only make one conference this year, this is it. (Plus it’s a lower cost option than most conferences.) We’ve also made arrangements with Social Media for Nonprofits to give you a discount of up to 20% when you register with the code “DonorDrive.”
We hope to see you there. If you’d like to arrange some private time to talk with Todd while in Chicago, feel free to email him.
