Facebook Launches Website For Nonprofits

facebook-news-articles2-ss-1920

With Facebook’s ever-reaching impact, brands are always utilizing the social network to speak to their audience and prospects. As such, nonprofits and NGOs are focused heavily on utilizing Facebook to reach fans and would-be fans alike to raise awareness and funds for their causes. This is why Facebook launched a new website, nonprofits.fb.com, which aims to offer tools and tips to help any nonprofit become a Facebook success.

The new site teaches nonprofits who aren’t yet on Facebook how to get started using the platform, including information on setting up a page, enhancing it with visuals, posting to the page, promoting the page and creating a campaign strategy that is focused on paid promotion. The site also walks nonprofits through the basics of growing the community, utilizing the news feed to grab attention and to raise awareness with advertising.

Facebook also has a section on its nonprofit site featuring success stories of how the site has been used in the past to help other nonprofits. For example, the site highlights how Mercy Corps utilized Facebook to raise funds after the earthquake in Nepal and how US-based 1,000 Days, a nonprofit for mother and baby to about good nutritional habits during the first 1,000 days of life, built a community of expectant and new mothers to sign petitions about paid family leave and WIC programs, growing the fan base from 3,000 to 85,000 in four months. Examples of campaign creatives are posted as well, giving social media managers and paid media managers inspiration for upcoming campaigns.

In short, Facebook’s nonprofits page gives the basics of using Facebook for promotion, but ensures to communicate that ads are still the path to wider reach. The success stories, though, will inspire nonprofits to create campaigns that can resonate with a wider audience.

How to Get SMS Alerts for Gmail via Twitter

How do you get SMS notifications on your mobile phone for important emails in your Gmail? Google doesn’t support text notifications for their email service but Twitter does. If we can figure out a way to connect our Twitter and Gmail accounts, the Gmail notifications can arrive as text on our mobile via Twitter. Let me explain:Twitter allows you to follow any @user via a simple SMS. They provide short codes for all countries (see list) and if you text FOLLOW to this shortcode following by the  username, any tweets from that user will arrive in your phone as text notifications. For instance, if you are in the US, you can tweet FOLLOW labnol to 40404 to get my tweets as text messages. Similarly, users in India can text FOLLOW labnol to 9248948837 to get the tweets via SMS.The short code service of Twitter can act as a Gmail SMS notifier. You create a new Twitter account, set the privacy to private and this account will send a tweet when you get a new email in Gmail. Follow this account …

Instagram Story links get 15-25% swipe-through rates for brands, publishers

Instagram may arrived late as a traffic source for brands and publishers, but it’s already showing early signs of success, driving new visitors to their sites and even outperforming its parent company, Facebook.For years brands, publishers and other have tried to push people from the Facebook-owned photo-and-video-sharing app to their sites. Outside of ads and excepting a recent test with some retailers, Instagram didn’t offer much help to companies looking to use it to drive traffic. So they had to find workarounds. They put links in their Instagram bios. They scrawled short-code URLs onto their pictures. And they typed out links in their captions.Then last month Instagram finally introduced an official alternative to these hacky workarounds: the ability for verified profiles to insert links in their Instagram Stories.Almost a month after the launch, 15% to 25% of the people who see a link in an Instagram Story are swiping on it, according to a handful of brands and publishers that h…
