Likeable Nonprofits Launches; First Comprehensive Social Media Marketing Platform for Nonprofits

New York, NY, Oct. 7, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today, Dave Kerpen, CEO of Likeable Local announced the launch of Likeable Nonprofits, the first comprehensive social media solution for nonprofits in conjunction with Grassroots.org.

Likeable Nonprofits is a software suite that makes social media easy and effective for nonprofits. The software incorporates four components: a vertical specific content publisher, Turbopost ™ social ad technology, mobile friendly websites, and offline marketing kits. Along with full analytics, Likeable gives nonprofits the tools they need to take control of their social media presence across Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn and generate awareness, volunteers, and donations.

This partnership follows the successful completion of a $1.5M seed round and launch of Likeable Dentists, Likeable Jewelers, and Likeable Dry Cleaners in 2013.

"Nonprofits have a unique opportunity to grow and scale their donations through social media," says Kerpen. "Our software makes it easy and effective to do so. I'm thrilled about our partnership with Grassroots.org."

Grassroots.org works with small and mid-sized nonprofits nationwide that often have a tough time allocating resources or committing their time to social media.

"It's a missed opportunity for nonprofit leaders not to be engaging the supporters on social media. It is so easy for nonprofits to have have interactions on social media and we're excited to make it even easier through Likeable Nonprofits," said Benjamin Cohen, Director of Business Development at Grassroots.org

Grassroots.org serves as a catalyst for positive social change by offering free technology tools, resources and best practices for nonprofit organizations to leverage their charitable efforts and serve their community more effectively. The organization provides these services to more than 9,000 organizations.

Dave Kerpen launched Likeable Local in 2013 in New York City. He previously co-founded and served as the CEO of Likeable Media, a twice-ranked-INC 500 social media marketing agency. He is the New York Times Bestselling author of Likeable Social Media and the most read LinkedIn influencer of all time with over 20 million page views, ahead of Bill Gates, Jack Welch and President Obama.
