Social Media

Avoid falling behind in social media

A new survey carried out by Charity Technology News aims to recognise the impact of social media and to see how charitable and Not-For-Profit (NTP) organisations plan to utilise this technology in their campaigns and marketing strategies.

Out of those surveyed, 100% agreed that social media will be very important in the future. Charities who had not thought about the future, or who had yet to employ a social media strategy are urged to do so as soon as possible to keep ahead of the game.

Results also showed that only 6% of the NFP professionals have a social media marketing strategy in place. The remaining 94% either don’t have one or are working on one. The 2012 Nonprofit Social Networking Benchmark Report states: “Non-profits continue to grow their presence on social networks without spending large amounts of time and money.”
