Training 1 for Nonprofits this Thursday!

Don’t Forget! The first Valley Gives 2013 training for nonprofits, “How Nonprofits Can Use Social Media and Online Giving on Valley Gives Day” with Heather Mansfield is this Thursday.

To sign up, watch for an email from Valley Gives — you’ll get this email after you have completed your initial sign up with Razoo AND completed the required Nonprofit survey.

This 60-minute webinar will highlight best practices for using social media to inspire online giving on Valley Gives Day. The presentation will feature best practices for using Facebook and Twitter and focus upon how to effectively use the #ValleyGives hashtag on social media during the weeks leading up to Valley Gives Day in order to build anticipation and maximize awareness of the #ValleyGives campaign. In addition, attendees will be provided a timetable for promotion of the event through website, blog, and e-mail communications as well as examples of key messages to distribute to your donors and supporters.

Heather will reference some images you can use in your campaigns  (They are available below; just right-click on them to download).
