Http://LeonardSipes.Com and Http://MyLifeAudio.Com Please see three articles focusing on Google and nonprofit–association social media. Hint–Google “really” wants you to open a Google+ account (their version of Facebook/Twitter) and contribute. Google+, Google search and YouTube will have an increasing impact on associations and nonprofits. Google wants to work with you through their products. Note; there will be a […]

The use of audio is, by far, my favorite medium. Audio is easy to produce, inexpensive and easily transportable via the web. Virtually all of today’s emphasis is on video and that’s a bit of a […]

She’s a former television news anchor with years of top-notch writing experience. She’s a very good communicator. But she surprised me by confessing that she was not “up to speed” on social […]

Http://LeonardSipes.Com and Http://MyLifeAudio.Com Facebook Page at http://www.facebook.com/LeonardSipes I spoke to the head of a government agency a month ago about creating a social media program.  It was his firm conviction that you need to have a specific audience and goals in mind to start a social media program.

Http://leonardSipes.Com I recently wrote Newspapers and the internet; the lessons we share. The first and second articles were based on The Story So Far, What We Know About the Business of Digital Journalism from the Columbia Journalism School which may be (and probably is) the most insightful social media document of all time. This is the third article […]

Http://LeonardSipes.Com (PR and social media for government, associations and nonprofits) I wrote an article describing assistance from Google regarding assistance to nonprofits, see http://leonardsipes.com/kudos-to-google-help-for-nonprofits-and-associations/. Now, YouTube (owned by Google) is offering an array of incentives to encourage nonprofits to take advantage of its services. One of the challenges of working with nonprofits and associations is getting them to […]
