Tips for Social Media for Social Good

London Rotarians have been sharing their love of Social Media with friends globally. As a result, published some information and top tips to help people use social media quickly. Also, a great chance to share some of our London rotary projects.

Here is a taste of my Top Tips published in the global social media magazine Autopilot your business:

“Top Tips for moving forward:
There are so many fantastic examples I could share about how great social media can be to help people with social good projects for any charity. For this reason, I will quickly share my top tips that may be worth considering, if you haven’t already.

1. Get Strategic: keep it flexible and realistic
Make a simple strategy to implement and use social media regularly, and as often as possible. This is really important to remember, as we often neglect it due to time and work-load pressures. Perhaps, start small by using just 3 sites like Twitter, Facebook and YouTube where you can share your goals and achievements quickly and easily. If new to social media, link with your local community first; then work towards a global strategy, perhaps using the top 6 social sites over time. Don’t forget there are loads of applications to help you plan and share even when not online.

2. Make Friends:
Embrace the power of social media to connect you with new organizations and make friends with others that have similar goals or purposes. Don’t worry if these are just short lived, keep an open mind and see how they work out over time.

3. Ask for Help: support & social media education
When sharing ideas, you can often find free support online from others in similar situations. Plus, you may need a bit of extra help or education as I did when progressing further with using global social media. Fortunately, I found a superb social media coach in Australia, Keith Keller, who is now taking me forward to use the top six social media sites. Amazing to now have five global experts teaching me, from all around the world! For info see https://autopiloturbiz.leadpages.net/oms-keith

4. Have Fun:
As I always say, make sure you have some fun when using social media and enjoy yourself too. Generate lively or happy memories that you can easily capture and share by social media with films, Facebook, pictures, tweets and pins for example.

So in conclusion, I feel that social media is perfect for generating extra support for social good. Also, social media can provide you or a charitable organization with the opportunity to really help others and make a difference to peoples’ lives.”

Hope that is might be of some use to help you get the most out of social media.

Have fun, Kaz Aston 07768904878
