Social Media for Nonprofits Conference Close-up: Judi Crenshaw, VECC

On December 5, 2013, ConnectVA 501 Tech Club presents the 2013 Social Media for Nonprofits Conference, hosted by Community Idea Stations | WCVE. The theme is Engaging Your Audience: From Boomers to Millennials (and Beyond) and will feature expert-led breakout sessions.

Dealing with Non-Believers & Slow Adopters. Not everyone loves social media – maybe it’s you, maybe it’s your executive director, maybe it’s the board. Regardless of who, this session will provide an overview of how to deal with those who are slow (or even resistant) to embrace social media. Register here. 

What does engaging a multi-generational audience through social media mean to you?

Social media allows me to tailor messaging to specific age groups and target them through different means of communication. So technology provides a lot of flexibility in targeting the audience — I get to zero in on what will make the most sense to who I’m talking to AND deliver it on the most effective platform. I keep up with changing trends and statistics about which age groups are responding to which social platforms. And I also keep stats on my own organization’s messaging so that I know what is working for us.
