George Lewis – When The Saints Go Marching In

Yesterday I went to a funeral. I know you must be thinking, “Why in the world do I want to read a blog about going to a funeral?” But it wasn’t just any funeral. It was a celebration of a man my family has known for many years, who has impacted his world, who has made an impression so great, people from all over the world wrote epitaphs of love, honor, and respect. If you had been sitting there and hadn’t known him, you would be able to walk out of that church with a great admiration for the man.

It got me thinking, what do I want people saying about me when I’m gone? And what about you–what do you want people to say about you when you are gone?

But why plan for the end of life when you could plan for now; so what do you want people saying about you tomorrow? And what about your business–what do you want people saying about your business tomorrow?

It doesn’t have to take a funeral to put things in perspective. Or does it?

I think by now you’ve read the statements regarding the importance of social media. If you aren’t using social media for business, you could be playing your own funeral dirge . . . soon.

Jeremy Blanton in The Social Revolution says,“The ROI of Social Media is your business will still exist in 5 years,”and he said that in June of 2011.  Eric Qualman said in May 2010, “Social Media isn’t a fad, it’s a fundamental shift in the way we communicate.” He also said, “We don’t have a choice on whether we DO social media, the question is how well we DO it.” We are almost in 2013.

Non-Profits on Social Media

For non-profits, social media can mean the life or death of a campaign. Here are a few tips, to turn a blah social media campaign into a great one.

Draw in outsiders. Appeal to people who have never heard of your non-profit. Share interesting facts and content about your organization to create a buzz.

Have some personality. Sharing interesting videos and images will differentiate you. Posts should be more than just advertising, too. It should seem as if there is a human behind there somewhere, because there is!

Use neat visuals. Great images reflecting your cause will show creativity and attract like-minded shares and mentions.

Show off your successes. If your organization does something great…toot your own horn! Scream from the mountaintops! Let it be known that you did something great and you want to talk about it.

Tell video stories. Videos can be a fresh way to tell your story, and in a new and interesting way. Don’t underestimate the power of video.

Don’t underestimate the power of social media. What creative ways has your organization used social media?
