Earlier this week, I wrote on how to jumpstart your year end giving. In it, I mentioned scheduling your social media updates to complement your fundraising letters.
Keeping up with your own blog as well as Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and LinkedIn can be daunting. Never mind trying to add Pinterest, Instagram, Tumblr, and others that keep popping up!
Naturally, readers have asked if I had any examples of templates to help schedule your social media updates on your calendar. So I asked colleagues for their favorite samples. The suggestions below were helped by Julia Smith, Danielle Siembieda, John Haydon, Shai Coggins, and Susan Mooney.
