Social media has the potential to revolutionize your association’s impact with member communications, event marketing, advocacy and networking. It also promises to make outreach less expensive.

Unfortunately, if you make the wrong choices about channels and practices, social media also has the potential to be an endless pit of wasted time and resources for your association and your staff.

Don’t risk building your strategy on anecdotal word of mouth about what other associations are doing. Here’s how to know what social media tactics will and won’t work before you invest time, resources and your reputation.

You need to know – with confidence -- what makes sense for your association.

But where can you find strategies, channels, challenges and expenditures in associations like yours? Plus, how do you stack up today on everything from website features and functionality to mobile initiatives?

The real-world information you need to plan, prioritize and budget for your association’s social media efforts


It’s easy to find general advice about how social media is being used, but “general” doesn’t always apply to the association community. Plus, social media channels and strategies that prove successful for some associations may not be the right fit for your own association’s members, budget, and mission.

 

You can’t risk resources or your reputation on trial and error. You must know where you stand now and then leverage your best social media opportunities. Remember, social media can have a major impact on the success of member communications, event marketing, advocacy and network facilitation.
