Thanks to everyone who participated in our 31st #AWCChat on Twitter, about how to juggle it all when you’re a nonprofit communications professional.
Huge thanks to our guest host @JanGunter; she’s the Communications Manager and “Jill of All Trades” for Ronald McDonald House Charities of Austin and Central Texas.
Four items were up for discussion:
1) How does one prioritize work across so many areas: website, fundraising, media relations, social media, email & marketing?
2) What resources (other than OJT – on the job training) are available? How do you learn the job duties that you don’t know?
3) As a nonprofit associated with a for-profit brand, how do you create awareness of your need for support?
4) When do you DIY (do it yourself) & when do you hire an outside professional? e.g., for video, photography, web design or PR campaigns.
We had lots of good resource links, too!
