Top Takeaways

  • You don’t have to be active on every platform. Pick the ones where your audience is most active.
  • Suit your content to what the platform prioritizes
  • Humanize your language on social media, aim for a person-to-person tone instead of being institutional and formal
  • Set a goal for each post–what are you trying to do? Start a conversation? Educate your followers? Turn a follower into a donor?
  • Use templates to make more content quickly and easily.
  • Staff social media roles with purpose and clarity
