Your New Year’s Resolution: Figure Out Online Communications and Fundraising
Here’s the Buzz!
We know: you never had time to wrap your head around “Web 2.0” and now you’re hearing Web 2.0 is over! Seminars and interns are telling you all sorts of frightening/enticing things about what you can do on the internet: Money flows in rivers online! Prospects flock like geese online! Data can be panned like gold at online! E-blast! Blogging! Twitter! Run! Catch up! Arrrggghhh!
Yes, the online landscape changes fast, but you don’t have to keep up with everything: you only need a basic map. In this presentation we’ll draw a map of the kinds of fundraising and communications tools that are available for nonprofits online, and how they connect with each other. We’ll look at your needs and how these tools integrate into an overall strategy. We’ll also look at specific services and providers so you can go straight back to the office and start trying stuff out.
