 CSU Class Helps Local Nonprofits Thrive on Social Media 

Frances Leary, owner of Wired Flare, worked with CSU juniors and seniors this past semester who were studying Marketing to help them develop and broaden their social media skills to benefit local nonprofits. 

The students developed social media plans for five participating nonprofit organizations, and provided recommendations regarding what platforms to use, custom content calendars, advice on what their social media goals and presence should be, and how to grow their audience using social media.

Stay tuned! In an upcoming newsletter we will present the social media strategies in action.
