FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Jan. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- The 2010 Florida Fundraising Conference: "How to raise more money with Facebook, Twitter, YouTube & other social media" will be held February 19, 2010 at the Sheraton Suites Cypress Creek, 555 N.W. 62nd Street, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33309. Program details, including nationally recognized presenters and registration information, are available at the conference website, www.socialmediafundraising.org.
"The full day program is designed to take all the mystery out of using social media for fundraising success," says Dr. Stephen L. Goldstein, one of the event organizers. "So many people in nonprofits hear all the buzz about using social media, and they genuinely want to get on board. But they don't know where to start. And while they're waiting on the sidelines and missing opportunities, others are actually raising money. We've designed the conference to give every participant a solid grounding — from the basics to more sophisticated uses of social media."
Katya Andresen of Network for Good (Washington, D.C.) lays the groundwork for the program. She opens the conference presenting "What to do before you even think of tweeting: The 11 steps to success with social networking and the six most miserable mistakes of social marketing." Skip Kimpel, author of the forthcoming Social Networking for Nonprofits: Making it work and making it matter, will take participants through a "social networking boot camp"—giving the nuts and bolts of venues from Facebook, Twitter and YouTube to others. After that, he'll reveal his formulas for creating a social networking fundraising strategy. Peter Panepento of The Chronicle of Philanthropy will discuss a number of case studies, proving that nonprofits are using social media for fundraising — with success. Social media consultant Brian Ross Lee will reveal ways to take the guesswork out of using social media by showing how to monitor nonprofits' success with social media through Google analytics and other programs. And finally, Dr. Stephen L. Goldstein, consultant and author of 30 Days to Successful Fundraising and www.fundraisingguru.blogspot.com, will present "Social media and high tech fail without high touch: How to turn the 7 expectations of social media users into dollars!"
