You’ve Got Fans … Now What?

Greetings, changemakers! The social change #smchat series is back in full swing this week and we’re making up for lost time by tackling a doozy: managing your online community.There are communities filled with motivated do-gooders, those that more closely resemble a kindergarten classroom, and everything in between. Ever feel like you spend more time keeping the peace than sharing your mission? Have a bully that just won’t quit? How have you overcome that?Or do you wonder if all your fans…See More

Video for Social Change

Since our June conversation on moving your online community up the engagement ladder, I’ve been asked to focus more of our monthly social change #smchat series on fundraising. And as I was pondering what aspect to tackle next, the lovely @AmySept suggested we take on video.We know a picture is worth a 1,000 words, so what value does video have in our social media effort? Is the medium strong enough to drive an entire campaign? Beyond the obvious, how can we leverage video for social change?As…See More

Social media for social change: Is this thing on??

Show of hands: Who’s questioned their social media effort? Hint: All hands should be raised. Try this scenario: You’ve spent weeks planning a campaign, identified key influentials and ensured they knew you, fined tuned and put your best ask (sing the petition, vote) out to your supporters …and only virtual crickets chirp back. Two days later, you share a fairly ridiculous YouTube video featuring your neighbor’s cat on Facebook and 20+ people comment. Sound familiar?It’s about that point we’ve…See More

Social Media & Social Change: Climbing the Engagement Ladder

If only I had a dollar for each time an organization named donations as their #1 reason for engaging in social media. I’d be rich. I’d be even richer if I had just 50¢ for each time that same non-profit got frustrated they didn’t realize their ROI within a handful of months of launching that social media effort.What strikes me in these conversations is that most charities understand that donations are often the culmination of a long series of engagements: emails, direct mail letters, events,…See More

Slacktivism: Result of Social Media?

Happy Monday, SMChatters. Our last social change SMChat centered on using social media to mobilize online communities to bring about real-time action. We questioned and debated how tomove supporters beyond “slacktivism.” But, let’s go back a step and explore“slacktivism” and social media a bit more. By definition, slacktivism is“feel-good measures in support of an issue or social cause that have little orno practical effect other than to make the person doing it feel satisfaction.”Think…See More

[Q39] SM for Change: From Conversation to Action

Hello, SMChatters. A few weeks ago in our collaboration chat, we touched briefly on how social media creates meaningful connections, invokes a collaborative spirit, and brings people who'd be otherwise disconnected together -- hey, look around, that's how we all ended up here, right? The conversation moved quickly, so in this week's discussion, let's stop to explore how these connections might foster real-time action both for mission-driven organizations and social changemakers alike. Should be…See More
