“5 Ways Nonprofits Can Get More Likes on Their Facebook Page”

by Randy Vaughn, Marketing Consultant, The Marketing Twins

Nonprofits may have launched a Facebook page with the hope of securing thousands of raving fans who would spread the word to a network of tens of thousands of friends.  If their Facebook page could “go viral” on Facebook, nonprofits dreamed of a steady flow of donations and volunteers from Facebook.  But after a surge of LIKES in the beginning, you are stuck at the same number with no real growth to speak of.  Attendees of this webinar will:

  • Understand a long-term strategic vision for using Facebook
  • Master the 3 most important things nonprofits should be posting every day
  • Discover 5 creative ways to increase the number of LIKES without having to pay for them
  • Find out how Facebook ads can actually work (and when and when NOT to use them)
  • Learn about a powerful way that Facebook can help you showcase the stories and vision of your nonprofit
