The foundation of a successful online communications and fundraising campaign is built upon a well-designed, well-written website and e-newsletter. Your NGO’s mobile and social media campaigns will produce lackluster results at best unless you understand first how mobile and social media has significantly altered website design and email marketing best practices. Packed with practical how-to training, this session will illuminate ten best practices for mastering website and email communications, as well as how to use social media effectively to recruit new supporters and fundraise online. The webinar will pay particular attention to how to effectively create visual media and blog content to distribute on social networks. The webinar then closes with a discussion about how to track and report Return on Investment (ROI) for your online communications and fundraising campaign. Participants will:

  • Gain knowledge of best practices for website and e-newsletter design
  • Learn the importance of blogging
  • Learn the top best practices for Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, and Instagram
  • Learn best practices for online fundraising on social networks
  • Track and report their mobile and social media ROI
  • Prepare for what’s next in online communications and fundraising
