Let’s look at your numbers. Without evaluating your numbers, there really isn’t much of a point in being on social media. We’ll help you set goals, and decide on a direction, as well as review some of the tools that can help you. For more information and to register click here.

Pitching the media
SIGN-UP SOON. THIS CLASS FILLS FAST.
How come the media hasn’t covered your organization yet? Do you know how to pitch a story? Do you have a news peg? Can you quantify your work? Do you have the context of your issue? In the first session, we will help you organize, set up a pitch and practice it. In the second, we’ll have you pitch a panel of journalists. None of them have any obligation to write a story, but they will tell you what works and what doesn’t. This workshop is 2 half-days. For more information and to register click here.
