Business social networking and non profit organizations are a good fit for one another in many ways. Social media outlets like YouTube can reach a global audience and inspire them to get involved in your cause. YouTube provides an excellent channel for non profits to gain exposure through their Non-Profit Program. This is a special network which is easy to qualify for, and provides many benefits including the ability to create premium branding with custom profile design. The program also offers increased uploading capacity, an easy feature for adding a “donate” button to your pages, listings on video pages and channels dedicated to nonprofits, and the ability to add a special overlay that links to your website. Program members also have the opportunity to post videos on the YouTube Video Volunteers platform for all their business social networking needs.
