Blogging Basics for Fund Raising & Non-Profits

Tonight I am participating in a social media roundtables networking event being hosted by the Association of Fundraising Professionals' Young Professionals here in Saint Louis. I am hosting a table on "Blogging"

Here are some of my favorite blogs about fund raising and non-profit marketing:
Beth Kantor's Blog for Non-Profits 
The Agitator
The Fundraising Coach
Katya's Non-Profit Marketing Blog
Nonprofit Marketing Guide

Here are some of the best non-profit blogs, from my experience:
Feeding America
American Red Cross
The Salvation Army
Holland Bloorview Childrens Rehabilitation Hospital
Operation Blessing
World Vision
Refugees International

I also produced a one-page Blogging Basics guide to hand out at tonight's eveng. It includes:
  • Stats on why blogging is an effective medium for businesses and organizations
  • Style and Tone best practices
  • What to include in a social media policy for your team
  • Blogging "Musts"
  • How to motivate bloggers
  • Great content ideas

Join Me for Social Media 101, June 7th at Webster University

I am looking forward to joining my colleagues and some of Saint Louis' social media "best" Chris Reimer (@RizzoTees), Nick Gilham (@NickGilham), Matt Ridings (@techguerilla) and Patrick Powers (@PatrickJPowers) on June 7th when we conduct a Business Boot Camp called Social Media 101 at Webster University.

It's only 5 hours and less than a few hundred dollars, and attendees will see us present on what has worked for companies in social media, both locally and nationally, small and large, and they will get to pick our brains and network with us to stay on top of this rapidly changing space. More Info / Register Here
This special half-day seminar is designed for businesses (large and small), entrepreneurs and nonprofits completely new to social media, as well as those who don’t feel they are up-to-date with the latest online has to offer.
Social Media 101:  Business Boot Camp is sponsored by Webster University’s Office of Corporate Partnerships which engages corporate partners in concert with Webster’s five colleges/schools, faculty, staff, students and extended campuses by connecting business and industry partners to these Webster constituencies. 

This is the first time I've seen a true "bootcamp" around social media here in Saint Louis, and Webster University has really lined up a great team of presenters for this workshop.
