Program Description:

Do the math. According to the United Nations most current population estimates of North America, we share our continent with 361,905,979 people. A study of the most active social media platforms in each country by Hootsuite and We Are Social found 2.789 BILLION* active social media users in North America (released January 2017). That means most us are active on average on at least 8 different social platforms, excluding infants and nonagenarians. Social media is a part of what every brand does and nonprofits must think of their organizations as brands, too. Nonprofits share relevant information or knowledge that adds value to their members, donors, patients, or customers’ lives. Eventually, just as a consumer brand, that value shared hopefully lands a buyer of either a product, program, membership or a donor because our missions need funding. But with all that activity, how is it possible to break through the clutter and get noticed?

Association Forum has partnered with the American Marketing Association Chicago chapter to bring you this highly anticipated session to discuss social media, for a variety of budgets! Join John Armstrong and Allison Lundberg as they discuss how to get your organization noticed on social media, discovering your social media voice and taking it to the next level with advertising.
