A Twitter chat for fundraising and marketing for small nonprofits – today!

Twitter chats can be a terrific way to meet new colleagues and get ideas for your work from really creative people.

I'm particularly excited about the #smNPchat Pamela Grow started. We "meet" on Twitter every other Friday at noon Eastern time to discuss marketing and fundraising topics related to small nonprofits. Many people that join are or have been in one-person shops.

Last time we discussed fundraising letters, testing our fundraising packages, and overcoming writer's block. Today's topic is "Summer time and the living is easy...or not." We'll look at how those of us in small shops, and those of us who support small shops, can use the summer to plan ahead and, maybe, to take some time for ourselves too.

I hope you'll choose to join use at noon today!

  1. Twitter has a large user base, and that’s great for many reasons: nobody has to signup to a new forum or chat. But… is Twitter the right tool for this job? For a timed chat? I’ve been participating in online discussions since newsgroups were the norm (1995) and my experience tells me that other tools would have other important advantages.

    The fact that is on Twitter might not be that important, as the people that meet and the subject are interesting enough, but then… why to put the fact that is happening on Twitter on the headline of the article?

    • Osvaldo, Thanks for the comment.

      I guess I don’t understand your question about using Twitter in the title. “The fact that is on Twitter might not be important” seems like saying the fact that the Chamber of Commerce is meeting at their conference room isn’t important. It’s always important to know where the discussion is happening. This post was meant to help people find the discussion.

      Does that make it clearer?
