Gaining more support for nonprofits in Colorado is in the interest of every organization and every person who may ever be involved with a charity or need support from one. Some nonprofits are just beginning to harness the power of social media and others have been ahead of the rest. One thing is for sure, the more nonprofits use Twitter in particular, the more they are weaving a web of support for the sector as a whole.
In order to continue building our state-wide web of support, nonprofits need to learn a few more tips for using Twitter effectively. CommUlinks of Colorado developed a report for this purpose. It can be found here: http://bit.ly/bKeTDq.
Today, we would like to offer the suggestion that you spend some time building your list of followers. Start by going over your @mentions to see which of your current followers may be retweeting your messages. Check their list of followers and follow them. Keep track of who you are trying to follow using a private list.
CommUlinks is conducting a survey of nonprofits using Twitter to learn about outcomes they have experienced as a result of using Twitter. Please take the survey at: http://bit.ly/cHzLyG and we will write a future blog post about the results.
