  • Harnessing the Power of Technology for Effective Nonprofit PR

    When it comes to public relations (PR), many nonprofit professionals automatically think it is either too much for their time-crunched, small staff to take on, or too expensive to hire an agency that will handle it for them. And twenty years ago, they may have been right. Once upon a time, public relations consisted largely of creating press releases, identifying specific, individual reporters to reach out to, working on tight, print-related deadlines and vying for finite, often limited, space. If organizations were actually able to garner attention, they would need to manually scour for clips and do the cutting and measurement tracking themselves. It’s no wonder many nonprofits think this type of PR is more than they can handle. But in the new digital age, effective PR can be accomplished with a lot less, making it feasible for many nonprofits to handle outreach themselves. Thanks to technology, you can engage in a PR campaign with the tools you are already using – your CRM, Facebook, Twitter and a few new free or low cost tools
