I Get Around

  • John Haydon invited me to share with his readers how I “rock the web” on his excellent blog on social media. In my guest post, I talk about some of the tools I use to take control of my time online. Take a look at the other posts on his blog for insights on how nonprofits can use social media effectively – John is a great resource (and an awesome musician).
  • My other favorite nonprofit social media blogger, Beth Kanter, also put up a guest post from me while she’s getting settled from her cross-country move. This one is an oldie but goodie from me on how to select your target audience: should you pick the low-hanging fruit or the hard-to-reach but bigger fruit at the top of the tree?
  • If you’re attending the CDC’s National Conference on Health Communication, Marketing and Media in August, I’ve set up a Ning social network for the attendees to connect with each other before, during and after the conference. So far 36 of us have set up profiles there. It’s an easy way to get to know people with similar interests before you get to the conference and are faced with a crowd of 900 people.
  • People are signing up for the Social Marketing University fundamentals webinars from all over the world. It’s a great way to learn about social marketing from wherever you are, especially if you are not able to travel to an SMU training like the Advanced Course coming up in Berkeley in September. But you can also do both! Don’t forget to use the discount code ‘BLOG’ to get 10% off the registration fee for the Advanced Course.
