Mixed Links for Nonprofit Marketers

If you had busy week like I did, relax and enjoy some Mixed Links!

First off, we have lots of good stuff on nonprofit websites:

Is your nonprofit’s website “slick or ick?” Find out how your website stacks up and take this quiz from Network for Good.

Nancy Schwartz talks about A/B testing for websites and what a big difference tiny changes can make.

John Haydon is also tackling the subject of websites with The Most Important Person Your Website Copy Should Speak To.

In other communications and fundraising news:

Katya Andresen triggers your senses and explains why your words matter in Cinnamon. Velvet. Kick. And More Examples of How to Seize the Brain. (Katya is also hosting March’s Nonprofit Blog Carnival. This month’s theme is “Picture this.”)

NTEN and Idealware would love your input on how your nonprofit communicates. Take a moment to answer their brief 4-question survey, NTEN 2012 Communication Mix.

Jeff Brooks shares a story about a nonprofit’s name change that has a successful outcome (for a change) in Shocking Truth: Nonprofit Changes Name in a Smart Way.

In How to Tell a Great Story: Use Real-Life Examples, Lori Jacobwith shares some questions she asked to help people realize the stories they have to share.

And finally, was your week one of those where nothing goes right? Jocelyn Harmon reminds us why it’s OK to make mistakes.

  • I do not even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was great. I do not know who you are but certainly you are going to a famous blogger if you are not already 😉 Cheers!

  • Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  • 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 get pleasure from, result in I found exactly what I was taking a look for. You have ended my four day lengthy hunt! God Bless you man. Have a nice day. Bye

  • 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.)

  • This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  • Oh my goodness! Amazing article dude!

  • Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  • Right here is the perfect web site for anyone who wants to find out about this topic. You know so much its almost tough to argue with you (not that I really would want to…HaHa). You definitely put a new spin on a subject that’s been discussed for years. Wonderful stuff, just excellent!

  • Very nice article. I certainly appreciate this website. Keep it up!

  • You made a number of nice points there. I did a search on the issue and found a good number of folks will go along with with your blog.

  • Can I simply just say what a relief to discover someone that genuinely knows what they’re talking about online. You certainly know how to bring a problem to light and make it important. More and more people have to read this and understand this side of the story. I was surprised you’re not more popular because you definitely possess the gift.

  • Good blog post. I absolutely appreciate this site. Thanks!

  • I’m impressed, I must say. 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 that too few people are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy I stumbled across this during my search for something concerning this.

  • Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.

  • An interesting discussion is definitely worth comment. I believe that you ought to publish more about this subject, it might not be a taboo matter but generally people don’t speak about these topics. To the next! All the best!!

  • The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  • When I originally left a comment I appear to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now every time a comment is added I get 4 emails with the same comment. There has to be an easy method you can remove me from that service? Thanks a lot!

  • It is perfect time to make some plans for the future and it’s time to be happy. I have read this post and if I could I desire to suggest you some interesting things or suggestions. Maybe you can write next articles referring to this article. I wish to read even more things about it!

  • Very nice post. I just stumbled upon your weblog and wished to say that I’ve truly enjoyed browsing your blog posts. After all I will be subscribing to your rss feed and I hope you write again very soon!

  • I like reading through an article that can make men and women think. Also, thanks for permitting me to comment!

  • Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  • If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

  • I was pretty pleased to find this great site. I wanted to thank you for your time for this particularly wonderful read!! I definitely savored every bit of it and I have you saved to fav to check out new things on your site.

  • The next time I read a blog, Hopefully it does not fail me as much as this particular one. After all, I know it was my choice to read through, nonetheless I truly believed you would probably have something helpful to say. All I hear is a bunch of crying about something that you could fix if you weren’t too busy looking for attention.

  • Aw, this was a very nice post. Finding the time and actual effort to make a very good article… but what can I say… I put things off a lot and never seem to get nearly anything done.
