Digital Strategies to Enhance Your Online Presence

Networked Nonprofits and the people who lead them are taking advantage of social media’s ability to facilitate and expand their impact by connecting, building, and establishing trust with people in their networks. This way of operating goes beyond simply using tools like Facebook, Twitter, or Snapchat and requires a networked mindset where openness and authenticity are essential. This interactive workshop will explore how nonprofits can embrace the best practices of a “networked nonprofit,” avoiding some of the pitfalls and challenges.

Organizations also have many questions about how to make best use of social media to advance their work, especially with limited time and resources. What audiences should they target? What are realistic and measurable results? Participants will learn how to create a digital strategy for social media, using the best practices for engagement, content, and champions.


  • Overview of digital trends
  • Digital assessment and strategy development
  • Share best tips and practices for social media engagement, content, champions, and channels
