Let’s Stay In Touch!

97ad6d1bd7707a56cad9d773b7742145-huge-scThank you to all of you who participated in the K–12 User Conference this week! We hope you were inspired and energized by the new ideas and best practices explored in our OBP sessions. Here are some of our favorite findings from the conference:
  • Facebook is a fantastic fundraising tool: Did you know that $300 million was raised in the first year of Facebook birthday fundraisers? $125 million (1/3 of all #GivingTuesday donations) was fundraised on Facebook alone! What are you doing to leverage the power of Facebook at your school?
  • Tweet like a pro: Adding images to your tweets results in 18% more click-throughs, 89% more likes, and 150% more retweets!
  • Emotional connections have powerful influence: Did you know that 80% of giving alumni have remained connected to their school, college, or university? You can increase those odds by promoting involvement in extracurricular activities and connecting students with mentors who champion and inspire them.
To learn more tips and tricks for leveraging social media and emotional connections to engage alumni, check out our Organizational Best Practices workshop, OBP: Education – Alumni Engagement.
We want to keep the conversation going! What left you inspired, wired, or fired up at the K–12 User Conference? Let us know in the comments below.
