Mixed Links for Nonprofit Marketers

Before I pour this week’s Mixed Links, here are a few training opportunities happening next week at Nonprofit Marketing Guide.com:

Would you like an expert to offer feedback on the direct mail appeal letter you’ll be sending soon, before it goes out? This is your last chance to sign up for this month’s e-clinic Direct Mail for Small Nonprofits with Tom Ahern, which starts Tuesday, 11/8/11. This is a great opportunity to get the guidance you need fine-tune your direct mail appeal so it gets the results you want. Register here. I’ll close registration Monday evening.

On Wednesday (11/9/11), I will be be presenting my popular webinar, Taming Your Editorial Calendar and Content Creation Process. I am offering a special package for this webinar only. Anyone who registers will have the opportunity to purchase my e-book, The Nonprofit Content Marketing Cookbook for only $25 (regularly priced $37).  Just look for the check box in your shopping cart.

Now, let’s dive in to those links!

First off, the October Nonprofit Blog Carnival is up. The theme was Improving the Volunteer Experience and is chock full of terrific posts.  Also, Pamela Grow has posted the November call for submissions with a holiday theme on one of my favorite communications and fundraising topics – How are you giving thanks?

In social media news, learn how to develop a thicker skin when dealing with negative comments on your Facebook page.

Katya Andresen of Network for Good overhauls one nonprofit’s website. Check out the results. Katya also has a great post called, The Cure for the Nonprofit Crisis? Focus. I’ve met so many nonprofit communicators who can’t answer the basic questions in Katya’s post. Can you?

Lindsey Bealko has a great post with NTEN called “Learning in the White Space: 5 Unintended Lessons from a Marketing Class.”

Finally, if you are looking for a new nonprofit marketing job, Nancy Schwartz has posted some new opportunities on her weekly Friday Futures post.

Have a great weekend!
