It’s Here! Social Media for Social Good: A How-To Guide for Nonprofits

August 17, 2011

[tweetmeme] Hot off the presses and just delivered via Fed Ex! It’s a surreal moment, exciting, nerve-racking, but it’s great to see the words off the screen and onto paper. Tangible, in my hands. There will be an e-book version of course, but I am so grateful to have been given this opportunity to publish a book while books are still printed on paper. A special thanks to all the nonprofits and service providers that helped with the research for this book – duly noted in the Acknowledgments (page 257). I also want to thank my editors at McGraw-Hill. Punctuation use when discussing social media is unchartered territory and we made up the rules as went along.

Social Media for Social Good will be released on September 9 and is available now for pre-order on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. There’s also a 10-city book tour fundraiser and social and mobile media training that will hopefully raise more than $30,000 for partner nonprofits. You can learn more about the book as well free companion webinars here. 🙂

    It looks like a must read. As an active campaigner for premature babies I shall certainly be purchasing a copy. Well done, Heather!

    Congrats, Heather. I saw you speak at NCNWR (best speaker they’ve ever had) a few years back and know your book will be very helpful to NPO staffers.
