Fighting Poverty with Passion
Since I started my position as a Social Media Liaison with Tulane University’s Center for Public Service AmeriCorps VISTA program, I have been following (via Social Networking) many leaders and innovators in the industry. Now, about eight months in, I believe I have gotten a sense of the tone and style of many of these individuals. One of my favorite Social Media Strategists (that I would recommend following closely) is John Haydon. He runs a social media marketing and consulting firm for non-profits and develops extremely helpful newsletters, posts, videos, tutorials, and publications on the topic.
One of the re-occurring questions I receive from individuals I work with is, “How do I get a stronger following on my organization’s Facebook page?” I usually give them a few basic tips, which are pretty simple to implement and have proven to be successful. However, recently I came across a related article posted by the very helpful, John Haydon on that exact question. So for this month’s Field Report, I thought I would share his insights on the topic.
There you go, 11 simple (but, effective) ways to build your social network. What is your organization doing to build their Facebook network? Please share your ideas, thoughts, successes, and feedback by leaving a comment. –Dominica Garza, AmeriCorps VISTA
