Mixed Links for Nonprofit Marketers and Fundraisers

Happy Friday! I’m in Edmonton, Alberta today at the Alberta EcoTrust Foundation’s River Rally. I hear there will be margaritas at my evening keynote tonight  . . .  Something tells me I should skip Happy Hour! So here are some Mixed Links instead.

TIME SENSITIVE: Voting closes today for potential NTEN conference sessions. Check out Nancy Schwartz’s blog for links to various sessions and also see ones she voted for.

Seems like everyone is talking about Facebook this week after they launched some new features and a new format (again). They also unveiled more big changes coming soon.

For an update on the changes check out this HubSpot post.

John Haydon talks about the new subscribe feature with two posts that show how it can benefit your nonprofit. How to activate Facebook’s new Subscribe Button (and what it means) and 7 ways Facebook’s Subscribe Button can be a nonprofit game-changer.

Frogloop also weighs in on the subscribe button with What the Facebook Subscribe Feature Means to Nonprofit News Sharing.

NTEN gives a great case study in How a Simple Facebook Strategy Can Turn a Crisis into a Community.

As everyone is gearing up for the end of the year fundraising, here is some advice from around the blogosphere.

The Agitator shares how to Turn Fans into Ambassadors.

Katya Andresen gives some relationship advice – relationships with donors, that is.

Blackbaud lists 5 Donation Form Bad Practices.

And finally, Jeff Brooks advises To Be a Good Fundraiser, Think Like a Donor, Not Like a Fundraiser.

  • I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  • Can I simply just say what a comfort to discover a person that truly knows what they are discussing online. You actually know how to bring a problem to light and make it important. More and more people must look at this and understand this side of your story. I was surprised you’re not more popular given that you surely have the gift.

  • I’ve been absent for some time, but now I remember why I used to love this blog. Thanks , I¡¦ll try and check back more often. How frequently you update your site?

  • Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  • Everything is very open with a precise description of the challenges. It was really informative. Your website is very useful. Thanks for sharing!

  • The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  • I’m impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative and entertaining, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which too few men and women are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy I came across this in my search for something relating to this.
