Here is an article about me about an event I am speaking at on February 19th. Are you a non-profit in South Florida? Want to come see me and some other top industry experts speak on social networking for non-profits?

Skip Kimpel to be featured at 2010 Florida Fundraising with social media conference Social media “guru”, Skip Kimpel, will be a featured speaker at the 2010 Florida Fundraising with Social Media Conference in Fort Lauderdale on Feb. 19, 2010

Skip Kimpel has been actively involved in the Internet since the Internet first started and has owned his own website marketing and software development company for over 10 years. Currently, he serves as IT director for a nonprofit, which serves as a hands-on “laboratory” for his social media theories and practices.

His forthcoming book, Social Networking for Nonprofits: Making it work and making it matter, addresses the special challenges–and opportunities–that nonprofits face in tough economic times. The good news is that social networking is a way to attract millions of new individuals and organizations that share a similar passion related to worthy causes. Kimpel asks the $64,000 question: You’ve heard of Facebook and Twitter, but do you really know how to use these widely acceptable forms of communication to raise money for your organization? And he gives the answer: Fundraising 2.0.

In Kimpel’s words, “From consistent branding to approaching these new concepts with the passion that is needed to succeed, my book will explain to you the steps that need to be taken to make sure your efforts are not wasted. Not only will I enlist you in a Social Networking boot camp, I will explain how it all works together. Once all the elements are in place, you will have an easy-to-use system that is simple to update and keep your followers engaged in your content and your organization. I will also explain the tools involved to make this process work and break it down into simple terms. You will learn little known industry secrets to stay ahead of your competition. This book is for anybody who wants to succeed in today‚Äôs Internet market and create a consistent brand. It also explores in detail how an ambitious nonprofit can explore new techniques, new ideas and engage in a fresh attitude of fundraising efforts for very little marketing dollars.”
