Mixed Links for Nonprofit Marketers

Happy Friday! It’s time for some Mixed Links!

First off, a reminder that our Quarterly All-Access Pass Summer Special expires tonight at midnight. Sign up today and get an extra month free – that equals 3 extra webinars at no additional cost. Read all about our All-Access Pass and sign up today. Three sign-ups have come in just in the last 30 minutes.

The April Nonprofit Blog Carnival is up over at Rad Campaign. This month’s theme was Social Fundraising Tips and Best Practices. For May, Carnival host Lori Halley of Wild Apricot will be collecting your submissions about Mobile-izing Supporters.

Curating content is a big part of content marketing. In fact, there is a whole section in my e-book The Nonprofit Content Marketing Cookbook devoted to the subject of content curation. In this article, Content Curators Are The New Superheros Of The Web, you’ll find great tips on how to curate content for your nonprofit to help others weed through information overload we see everyday on the Internet.

Event360 has just released a free new white paper 4 Steps to Converting Event Donors into Organizational Donors that will help you turn your event donors into long term ones. I’m hoping they’ll guest blog on it soon for us!

I don’t write too much about LinkedIn myself, but it can be an important tool for nonprofits. This guest post by Geri Stengel for Beth Kanter explains how nonprofits can build relationships through LinkedIn.

For those who rely more on Facebook, John Haydon shares his slide deck from his webinar 27 Ways to Increase Engagement on Your Facebook Page.

You know I advocate letting your nonprofit’s personality shine through in your fundraising and marketing. Corinne Marasco shares how Al Franken did just that in his fundraising appeal email. I bet we’ll get lots of inspiration for political fundraising emails in the coming months (not to mention a bunch of Don’t Do This! lessons).

In other “funny” business, check out 5 Parody Twitter Accounts to learn how those with a bad PR rep are handling it. (Again, note the word “parody” in the title. This is not really how Rupert Murdoch, BP, and the Galactic Empire are handling their public relations nightmares, but it sure is funny.) I’m working on a blog post about nonprofit parody accounts so if you know of some good ones, let me know!

And finally if any of you are searching for a job in the nonprofit marketing sector, Nancy Schwartz just posted her weekly Nonprofit Marketing Job listings. It’s a great resource for those hiring and job searching alike!

See you next week!

  • I would like to get across my gratitude for your kindness for men who absolutely need help with the area of interest. Your special commitment to passing the solution all-around appears to be surprisingly interesting and have continually encouraged people just like me to attain their aims. Your new warm and helpful publication denotes so much a person like me and far more to my office workers. Thanks a lot; from all of us.

  • I must thank you for the efforts you have put in penning this site. I am hoping to view the same high-grade content by you in the future as well. In truth, your creative writing abilities has inspired me to get my own site now 😉

  • I am extremely impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself? Anyway keep up the nice quality writing, it’s rare to see a nice blog like this one nowadays..

  • I like the helpful information you provide in your articles. I’ll bookmark your blog and check again here frequently. I’m quite certain I’ll learn plenty of new stuff right here! Best of luck for the next!

  • 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.)

  • Very nice post. I definitely love this website. Keep writing!

  • You’re so interesting! I don’t think I have read anything like this before. So great to find another person with a few unique thoughts on this subject matter. Really.. many thanks for starting this up. This site is one thing that is needed on the web, someone with a little originality!

  • 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.

  • I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both educative and interesting, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy I found this during my search for something relating to this.

  • You are so awesome! I do not think I’ve truly read through a single thing like that before. So good to discover another person with unique thoughts on this topic. Really.. many thanks for starting this up. This web site is one thing that’s needed on the web, someone with a little originality!

  • 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.

  • It’s hard to come by experienced people about this topic, however, you sound like you know what you’re talking about! Thanks

  • I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is an issue that too few folks are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy that I found this in my search for something concerning this.

  • Wonderful beat ! I wish to apprentice while you amend your web site, how can i subscribe for a blog site? The account helped me a acceptable deal. I had been tiny bit acquainted of this your broadcast provided bright clear idea

  • Can I just say what a relief to find somebody who truly understands what they are talking about over the internet. You definitely realize how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More people should read this and understand this side of your story. I was surprised that you aren’t more popular because you surely have the gift.

  • You need to take part in a contest for one of the greatest sites online. I will recommend this website!

  • When I initially commented I appear to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on each time a comment is added I recieve 4 emails with the same comment. There has to be a means you are able to remove me from that service? Thank you!

  • 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.

  • Hello. fantastic job. I did not anticipate this. This is a fantastic story. Thanks!

  • I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both educative and engaging, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head.

  • 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.

  • You are so interesting! I don’t believe I have read anything like that before. So good to find another person with a few genuine thoughts on this issue. Seriously.. thanks for starting this up. This web site is one thing that is required on the internet, someone with a bit of originality!

  • I carry on listening to the reports lecture about getting boundless online grant applications so I have been looking around for the most excellent site to get one. Could you advise me please, where could i acquire some?

  • 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.
