#CMGRHangout presents: Community Management for a Cause

Do you use community management to help a cause whether as a non-profit or a for-profit organization? How do you build a community and help them join forces to help others? How do you continue to reach beyond those you know and grow your circle of influence?

Join us on this week’s #CMGRHangout panel Friday, August 22nd at 2pm EST to learn from those who spend their days focused on helping a cause through community management.

+Jonathan Brewer and +Sherrie Rohde will be hosting the Hangout with Amanda Britt (+Panzanzee), +Molly Cantrell-Kraig, Bethany Joy Clark, +Tim McDonald and +Elijah van der Giessen as panelists. +Sarah Nagel and +Carrie Keenan will be moderating the Twitter chat using #CMGRHangout .

Discussion Questions

1. How do you define a cause?
2. How is running a community for a cause easier/more difficult than a profit driven community?
3. What role does social media play for cause based communities?
4. How do you drive fund raising without constantly asking for money?
5. Does doing good make it easier or more difficult to engage with users?
6. How does your community integrate with other marketing efforts?
