It’s a new year and a new decade, so it’s a popular time for making New Year’s resolutions and setting goals. If you’re like many of us, you may have your sights set on improving the way your social network or community group connects, but aren’t sure where to start. Maybe you’re reluctant to use traditional social media platforms because of privacy concerns. Maybe your attempts to get your group together via a social networking app fall short because some members aren’t overly enthusiastic about engaging with technology. Before you decide that finding the right platform for your community is an unrealistic goal, consider the benefits of private social networking tools, such as Go2s. Here are some of the many benefits you can enjoy with this secure platform.
Keep Everyone Connected without Making It Complicated
Sometimes, it’s difficult to get all your team members to try a new app or network because not everyone is excited at the prospect of getting acquainted with new technology. One thing your group will especially appreciate about Go2s is that they can still be in the loop even if they don’t download the app. While they can’t take advantage of all its features, they can at least receive group correspondence via email so they can stay informed.
Communicate More Effectively
Go2s allows you to ask questions, exchange ideas, and share information, but without all the traffic you’re likely to encounter on most other social media sites. Go2s provides a safe place to collaborate; group administrators can control settings to ensure that unauthorized parties don’t gain access to their information. You can share files and photos in real-time so everyone is on the same page and can stay current on what’s important. Additionally, your group members will be more likely to engage in conversations when they know their interactions are protected.
If you direct a childcare center or coach a youth sports team, you know how difficult it can be to let parents know about upcoming events or schedule changes. You may begin by sending a group email. Knowing that some recipients don’t check their inboxes regularly, you might follow up with phone calls or text messages. All this is time-consuming. Despite your best efforts, there always seem to be one or two group members who somehow fail to get the “public service announcement” you so painstakingly tried to convey.
Go2s makes it possible to streamline communications so you don’t waste valuable time creating cumbersome email threads or jumping through hoops to get in touch with people. Our app reaches members through multiple channels, such as email and text, as soon as you send out the information. Essentially, we do all the work for you so you can focus on improving the dynamics of your group and getting your members more involved.
Level the Playing Field
For childcare centers and other small businesses and organizations, a secure social networking space can level the playing field for all members of the community, giving everyone the opportunity to have a voice. Using a private networking site can make it easier for all stakeholders — volunteers, staff and clients alike — to share ideas and provide feedback. This allows you to gain insight and make meaningful changes to your organization to ensure everyone’s interests are represented in ways that work best for the whole group.
If you work with children, then you know what it’s like to try and keep parents up-to-date about schedule changes, upcoming events, and other news. If you don’t have a convenient way to connect with families digitally, your only option may be to distribute hard copies of the information, which can be time-consuming and costly. With Go2s, you can connect with your entire community right away, without the need for printed material. Plus, you’ll save money on paper and ink cartridges and won’t have to restock office supplies as frequently. Additionally, instead of devoting precious time to handling hard copy correspondence, your corps of staff or volunteers can instead shore up their energy and resources to promote your group’s mission and goals.
With Go2s, you can transform the way your community collaborates and the way your business or organization operates. If 20/20 success is one of your top goals for 2020, sign up for a free account today.
