Sarah Clarke founded Dufferin Media and has been working with Nonprofits for years. She came on the show to share all of her tips on how to get seen on social media. Creating content and collaborating with other nonprofits is a great way to boost SEO but one thing that Sarah thinks is most important is a great website.
