Social Hot Stuff ……. Slideshare It!
Posted by Armanino Nonprofit Team
OK, by now we all know that social media is all the rage. The question isn’t so much … should our Organization do it, but how can we best leverage the great content that we already have? Most of you have so much content just waiting to be shared, whether it’s your Annual Report, the results from last month’s Golf Tournament or the brochure from your upcoming Crab Feed.
Now that you know you have the content, let’s give it a potential life of its own. At Armanino McKenna, we have found a great social media leverage tool in Slideshare. SlideShare is the world’s largest community for sharing presentations. It is amongst the most visited 200 websites in the world, and now have made an emphasis on working with nonprofits! Besides presentations, SlideShare also supports documents, PDFs, videos and webinars. We use it constantly to distribute all kinds of information like our Issues and Insights newsletter. I personally use the free LinkedIn application to share some of my own personal professional content. So go out there and give your social media efforts that little end of September boost!
Nonprofit organizations have specialized audit, tax and operational needs that require specialized service. Armanino has been committed to the nonprofit sector since 1953, and we now work with more than 500 nonprofit clients. This hands-on experience gives our staff of CPAs and former CFOs a deeper understanding of the issues nonprofits face, so we’re able to meet their needs and help them fulfill their missions in the most efficient, cost-effective way possible.
