Mixed Links for Nonprofit Communicators

Here are your Mixed Links for the week.

First off, I hope all of my readers in the Northeast are safe and recovering from Hurricane Sandy. Network for Good has set up a Hurricane Sandy disaster relief donation page. It lists several organizations you can donate to safely.

It’s that time of year again — lots of people are launching their annual surveys, including us! Yesterday we opened the annual Nonprofit Communications Trends Survey for 2013 and we already have about 200 responses. Participate in our survey (more than 1,200 nonprofits did last year) and you can request a free copy of the 2013 Nonprofit Communications Trends Report, to be released in January.

Wild Apricot also just began an online survey designed to gather insight into the world of small (and often volunteer-led) membership organizations.  Take the survey now.

DoSomething.org has recently released their survey results on what motivates young people to volunteer. Joanne Fritz and Nancy Schwartz both share their take on the report.

Have limited staff and hours to spend on online marketing? John Haydon answers Which is Better: Social Media or Email Marketing in a brief video. (Hint: It’s a trick question.)

Katya Andresen warns us marketers and fundraisers to Remember That You Are an Interruption.

Ashley Halligan, an analyst at Software Advice, recently published an article outlining how nonprofit organizations can begin the search for and establish lasting relationships with for-profit businesses.

  • 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.

  • Great remarkable issues here. I¡¦m very satisfied to see your post. Thanks a lot and i am having a look ahead to contact you. Will you kindly drop me a e-mail?

  • 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.

  • Right here is the perfect webpage for everyone who would like to find out about this topic. You understand a whole lot its almost hard to argue with you (not that I personally would want to…HaHa). You certainly put a fresh spin on a subject which has been discussed for decades. Great stuff, just wonderful!

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

(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.)
