I will be speaking at the Fundraising 2.0 Conference on Friday put on by the Association for Fundraising Professionals. There is an amazing list of speaker from the city of Indianapolis and it is going to be AWESOME! Check out the information below.
The web isn’t what it used to be.
Social networking is here and here to stay. Can you Flickr a Del.icio.us Tweet in the Facebook? Would you even want to if you could? Obama used it, raised millions and fundraisers raised eyebrows.
Studies show that all ages are using these media in some fashion, but how do you tell what is right for your organization and where to start? How do you spread the word without spreading yourself too thin? Well, if you’re ready to learn, you need: Fundraising 2.0 – Raising Money on the Social Media Landscape
AFP’s Spring Conference will give you the quick and dirty on how to Digg the Newsvine if you Stumbleupon an RSS Feed. We’ll help you determine exactly what social networks are best to accompany your organization’s fundraising plan and how to use them efficiently to meet your objectives. Hear from the experts and walk away with a manageable toolkit to get started.
