Be a Beacon of Goodness: How Nonprofits Can Leverage Location-based Services

This month we dive into the growing location-based marketing trend with geo-location tools of Foursquare, Gowalla, Whrrl, Facebook Places, and SCVNGR, and discover how they can be used to spread awareness, fundraise, build community, and engage action.

Explore how Whrrl’s Societies are used to build communities and bring like-minded people together. Use Foursquare’s “Tips” to increase consciousness and fundraise for your cause or organization. Employ supporters into action by creating SCVNGR challenges. Play a game of tag with Facebook Places to spread your message amongst the 600 million plus Facebook users.

Come on in and join the conversation! We'd love to have you.
