If you’ve seen me speak, you know I cram in a ton of information into my sessions, and this one is just one hour.
I wanted to come up with a quick checklist of all the questions and To Dos that I go over with my clients when forming a social media strategy for their organization.
Here it is, as a free JPG for you to download: Julia’s Nonprofit Social Media Checklist
