Crowd Sourcing Information From Your Members
Wednesday, July 23 – 1:15pm-2:15pm
By tapping into the wisdom of your membership through crowdsourcing, you could have access to an almost unlimited supply of ideas for getting your association’s message across on your website. Not only that, but crowdsourcing could enable you to disseminate your messages to a larger number of current and potential members. Members who are involved in content have more ownership and are more likely to share that content with their own networks.
Ed Schipul will take the audience through the fundamentals of how to use crowdsourcing to give a boost to their organization’s website content. He’ll give practical tips on:
-How to recruit and maintain guest contributors, bloggers and photographers
-The best ways to collect stories from members and turn them into content
-How to use your people on video to tell your story (i.e. volunteers, board)
-Using social media to collect ideas/stories
-Maintaining an editorial calendar and accountability
Throughout the presentation, Schipul will provide plenty of real-word examples of how crowdsourcing works to use the wisdom of your membership to disseminate your message.
The audience will learn:
-How leveraging content from members, or “crowdsourcing,” can make their job easier.

-Best practices for recruiting and maintaining guest contributors, bloggers and photographers.
-Best practices for collecting stories from members and turning them into content.
