There’s More to Nonprofit Marketing than Social Media

Flickr:Leo-ReynoldsA few months ago I was invited by the folks at the Frogloop blog to guest author on a social media issue.

For those of you who don’t know it, Frogloop is a high-value resource focused mostly on social media. As you would expect, I was asked to write on social media.

But I found that a tough assignment.

There’s so much written on social media, and so much useful content already published on Frogloop, that I didn’t feel I had much to add. Then I realized I did have that something—to reinforce the framework that’s a prerequisite for social media (and overall marketing) success—marketing fundamentals.

You see, I’m concerned to see nonprofit marketers forsake the well-tested cornerstones of effective nonprofit marketing to do all social media, all the time. Or even 40% of the time.

I invite you to read my take here and add your perspective to the compelling conversation underway. Looking forward to hearing your point of view!

    That’s a great point Nancy. Your point actually should apply to all who are in business and use social media marketing tactics. We can’t forget the fundamentals. :-)
