Description

I needed to know how to build social media campaigns that would engage .

I needed to know how to build social media campaigns that would engage our existing audience, attract new followers, and move our community up the donor ladder. Guiding principles useful to any nonprofit. The guiding principles for this book can be used by small start-up nonprofits (like us) or for large-scale nonprofits who want to make the transition to digital fundraising and community engagement. I read Social Change Anytime Everywhere like a mystery novel-every page was another AHA! moment. I was deeply inspired and motivated by the book. I read this book almost six months ago and I still reference the strategies I learned from it. Major takeaways

This book is a "must have" for anyone - or any organization - wishing to embark upon a successful, multiple-channel "call to action" campaign. "Social Change Anytime Everywhere" is comprehensive, it provides insightful "real life" examples, and genuinely helpful step-by-step guidance. One simple overarching truth shared by Allyson and Amy is, "Organizations need to let the community drive. That doesn't mean organizations ... relinquish all responsibility and control ... quite the opposite! The organization gets to do everything but drive: You are the vehicle, the gas, the map, but if the community isn't in the driver's seat, you won't have the engagement or power to go anywhere."

This concept informs the book. I was also pleased to read about successful campaigns implemented by nonprofits that are favored by young people like Surfrider, as well as those for older adults like AARP. E-mail, social media, QR (Quick Response Codes), mobile, blogs, and direct mail are discussed, but also measurement, churn rates, listening tools, and staffing.

"Creating social change is no easy task. It takes people, planning, resources, and money." Some of my nonprofit colleagues fail to realize this. Some have jumped the gun without proper preparation, thinking it is easy. I urge them to acquire the book and learn how a comprehensive, well-thought-out campaign can be a rousing success in terms of fundraising, and a home-run for broadening an organization's visibility, strengthening its community, and affecting social change. I personally believe multi-channel campaigns such as those discussed by Amy and Allyson will continue to be a big part of the future of the nonprofit sector. Best to be prepared, and successful to boot.

We need to realize, "To create change on the ground, it's going to take more staff resources and a combination of tried-and-true organizing strategies, creative storytelling, plus developing and testing new strategies to ... raise even more awareness about our issues and connect with our community on deeper levels."

In closing, I'd like to suggest that nonprofit (and nonprofit support) organizations everywhere invite the co-authors of "Social Change Anytime Everywhere" to conduct in-person workshops about the book and their findings. These kinds of learning sessions would be well worth the investment, and a hands-on way to spread the increasingly important knowledge provided in the book.

I found "Social Change Anytime Everywhere" to be a quick read with a coherent comprehensive content layout relevant to existing nonprofit communication channels. It also has good examples relatable to a variety of nonprofits.

I would have liked more discussion of monitoring, analysis, and reporting while using specific metrics for some of the numerous examples sprinkled throughout the book. I feel that would have enhanced this work's contribution to the nonprofit field's contemporary literature. But, as is, this is still a timely and worthwhile addition for communication practices.

This is also one of the few nonprofit books I've found thoroughly readable on a mobile phone device using the kindle app. To me, that shows the care taken with the publisher's attention to detail given today's use of varied reading technologies, as well.

I highly recommend this book for both nonprofit professionals and anyone looking to make an impact for their cause in the ever-evolving landscape of social media and online channels. Through their vast experience in the nonprofit space and leadership in nonprofit technology, Allyson and Amy are experts in the area of online strategy for nonprofits. This book is chock-full of their helpful insights and real-world stories to help you whether you are writing your next tweet or launching your next multichannel fundraising campaign. If you're looking for practical takeaways you can implement at your organization that will help you build a framework for using the internet to inspire action and engage your community for your cause, look no further than Social Change Anytime Everywhere. Enjoy!

As a former startup founder and CEO, I needed a primer on social strategy to advise a non-profit that I serve on. I found this book to be filled with valuable strategy and tactics that helped me gain confidence in an area of growing significance for any non-profit.

I can't put this book down - I'm really excited about it. I love how many progressive organizations are cited as examples throughout the book; for example, the National Women's Law Center's campaign around "Being a Woman Is Not a Pre-existing Condition" with an image illustrating their campaign, Monterey Bay Sea Aquarium's app that helps people make sustainable seafood choices, Amnesty International, Dan Savage's "It Gets Better" campaign, the SurfRider Foudnation, the AIDS walk, IAVA's #GoSilent campaign, etc.

This isn't a book for one type of organization, it's a book about social change for all nonprofits that are working to create change. I love how real the book is. Allyson and Amy have both worked in the nonprofit realm and are able to acknowledge all of the challenges that nonprofits may encounter.

If you're looking for a book about social change, and how to use social media, raise money, and engage more people, I highly recommend reading Social Change Anytime Everywhere! Full disclosure, I know the authors, though I have not let that influence this review.

You can always tell when a book has been written by someone - or, in this case, two people - from the trenches, who have actually walked the talk. There's no ambiguous theory here, or anecdotal quips. Kapin and Ward share case studies, real examples, and years of personal expertise, and deliver the best primer around for today's social change-makers. Whether you're a non-profit yourself, volunteer at one or are a supporter of several, this book helps you understand what it means to be a non-profit today and - more importantly - how to connect with your constituents and build loyalty and advocacy for years to come. Highly recommended.
