¿Necesitáis llegar a nuevos simpatizantes que apoyen a vuestra organización?
¿Organizáis un evento solidario y queréis que más gente en vuestra ciudad se apunte?

Seguro que sabes que las redes sociales son el medio natural para vuestra entidad, porque podéis tener conversaciones, relaciones con personas que os apoyan y generar la confianza, pero vuestras publicaciones en Facebook cada vez las ven menos personas.

Hoy en día para tener este alcance y llegar a estas personas es necesario invertir en publicidad de pago, y esto no es sencillo al principio, ni en nuestro sector una práctica muy habitual.

Por este motivo te invitamos a esta próxima meetup, donde Javier Quilez, Consultor de Facebook Ads para ONG, nos dará consejos y una guía clara de como dar nuestros primeros pasos.

¿Sabes que todas las grandes Organizaciones sin ánimo de lucro ya hacen uso de Facebook Ads?

En este meetup vamos a aprender de sus campañas y sus anuncios, y saldrás con las ideas claras para poder dar los primeros pasos de forma segura. Una de las grandes ventajas de la publicidad en Facebook Ads es que puedes controlar el presupuesto de una forma muy sencilla, ven y te lo explicamos.

Te interesa este meetup si:
- No conoces Facebook Ads y necesitáis conocer su potencial antes de dar los primeros pasos.
- Ya has dado los primeros pasos pero no acabas de ver resultados.
- Quieres sacar más provecho a Facebook Ads.

elijah's picture

It's 2020! If you are old like me you might remember a time when the future was so bright we had to wear shades. But now that the future is here it's actually just confusing. ;-)

Let's help nonprofits find some clarity by hosting a series of events to help them decode the big changes in digital, starting with a digital marketing and technology trends meetup.

You can see NetSquared's #GivingTuesday bump!

During November 2019 our amazing NetSquared community leaders created:

  • 86 events (⬆21%)
  • 835 RSVPs
  • 49 active groups

There was a big increase in the number of November events (compared to October) because the run-up to #GivingTuesday makes for an obvious "online fundraising best practices" meetup.

It's the tradition of the season to share your gratitude. This year I'm deeply thankful for your leadership as a meetup host — together we're reaching more than 10,000 grassroots nonprofits.

Your work is making a real impact — in fact, according to our most recent survey, 76% of attendees find the events so valuable that they share what they've learned with coworkers. And more than 60% report that being part of the NetSquared community helps them make better tech decisions.

Thank you! In appreciation TechSoup is giving all active NetSquared organizers FREE access to our online courses. You'll get the code separately in your email. Or you can apply to become a leader now!
