The First #M4NP Twitter Chat
Why Should Your Nonprofit Be Mobile Ready?
Nonprofits benefit from embracing mobile to connect, fundraise and amplify social media. If you’re shying away from making this adjustment in your organization’s Web presence, it’s time to embrace it. Social is better with mobile. We are excited to undertake the Mobile for Nonprofits arm of our organization and hope to move the needle on mobile adoption in the nonprofit sector.
To help nonprofits be smart about their strategy with smart phones, tablets, and less-smart phones, we will lead monthly Twitter chats with the hashtag #M4NP. We will invite sector experts to provide resources and ask 5-6 compelling questions to drive conversation. Conversation will be led from @SM4Nonprofits and our new Twitter handle @M4Nonprofits. We’ll be the first to admit: this is something we’re still working on for our nonprofit. We don’t have the best mobile tech around, but we are committed to making it better and to sharing what we learn in the process with our community.
Join us on March 23rd and every fourth Monday from 1-2 PM EST.
