This presentation was the Foundation for Jewish Camp's introductory overview to our internal staff about the Communication Department's social media efforts to date.


<ul><li> 1. FJC and Social Media: Were Everywhere!</li></ul> <p> 2. Why Social Media? </p> <ul><li> You cant afford not to be on it. </li></ul> <ul><li>People are talking about Jewish camp, summer camp, and the Jewish nonprofit sector, and we want to be part of that conversation. </li></ul> <ul><li>What are people saying about FJC? What do our audiences need? </li></ul> <ul><li>How can we engage our constituents in the short-term (conversations, sharing links, etc) so that we might engage them in the long-term (program applicants, donors, etc)? </li></ul> <ul><li>How can we make people feel good about Jewish camp? We empower and enable people to advocate.</li></ul> <ul><li>Directly recruit for our programs: One Happy Camper; Professional Development programs, etc. </li></ul> <p> 3. Where are We? </p> <ul><li>Facebook ( www.facebook.com/foundationforjewishcamp ) </li></ul> <ul><li>Twitter ( www.twitter.com/jewishcamp ) </li></ul> <ul><li>Blog: The Campfire ( www.jewishcamp.org/blog ) </li></ul> <ul><li>YouTube ( http://www.youtube.com/user/ilovejewishcamp )</li></ul> <p> 4. What have we learned? </p> <ul><li>1:12 rule: for every message you send out that promotes yourself or your organization, you should send out 12 messages that either: </li></ul> <ul><li><ul><li>Provide a resource to audience (articles, etc.) </li></ul></li></ul> <ul><li><ul><li>Complement or highlight someone elses efforts (repost messages from camps, organizations, etc.) </li></ul></li></ul> <ul><li><ul><li>Initiate conversations: Ask audience questions that will allow them to talk about themselves and share their stories. </li></ul></li></ul> <p> 5. Facebook 6. Facebook </p> <ul><li>1892 Fans</li></ul> <ul><li>Fans: camp professionals, lay leaders, parents, camp alum, campers, Jewish professionals </li></ul> <ul><li>Purpose: Engage different segments of this audience and promote interactivity. Highlight dynamic nature of Jewish summer camp and of FJCour travels, our programs, our work with different constituent groups.</li></ul> <p> 7. Twitter: Home Page 8. Twitter </p> <ul><li>794 Followers: camps, nonprofit technology gurus, secular camp orgs and professionals, Jewish professionals, rabbis, former campers, parents, random folks with an interest in Jewish camp </li></ul> <ul><li>Purpose: Twitter is a much more informal mechanism of communicating small bits of information to a much broader audience. Unlike FB, its appropriate to insert yourself into a strangers conversation or send them a message even if they dont follow you.</li></ul> <ul><li>Twitter also allows you to follow conversations around specific topics/events, and see who the real influencers are. </li></ul> <p> 9.
