Tech Tools Comm Directors Love #13NTC

When we were at the 2013 Nonprofit Technology Conference a few weeks ago, we asked nonprofit marketers and communicators a series of three questions. One was, “What is the one tech tool you couldn’t do your job without?”

Here is what we heard:

Google Apps runs my whole life. I can’t live without Google calendar and Asana.com for project management.” – Leili Khalessi, Communications Director at Red Rover

TweetDeck aggregates everything that I need as far as my keywords, my feeds, and lists. I like the nimbleness of TweetDeck.” – Jason Shim, Digital Media Manager at Pathways to Education Canada

“I am loving Google Analytics. We didn’t have it for a long time but I love to see who is using our website and how we can take that information and make our site better.” – Mandy Toomey, Communications and Development Associate at Carlos Rosario International Public Charter School

“This year we switched to Drupal. And what also keeps me connected is my iPhone — media calls, contact with my staff, IM with my partners and staff.” – Robert Rosenthal, VP of Communications of Communications and Marketing at VolunteerMatch

“I love Twitter. People can take it and digest it as fast or slow as they like.” – Colin McClain, Research & Outreach Journalist at Happy Dancing Turtle

“I love Facebook. I like the fact that we get straight interaction with our audience. We get to find out what they think, ask fun questions, and introduce them to interns, volunteers and other people that work at our org. It’s nice that they get to see a face to go with the organization.” – Michael Crye, Online Service Manager at ACLU in Washington

“I am still experimenting, but I like using MailChimp instead of Constant Contact for newsletters. I also like Google Analytics for basic helpful stuff to keep track of what’s going on.”  – Meldon Jones, Communications Specialist at Community Advocates Public Policy Institute

“I just love Evernote. It’s that everything bucket; it’s on my iPhone. I have it on my iPad, my computer at work and my computer at home. I use it as a dumping ground – throw my ideas in there, some snippets, bioler plate text, links, quotes, everything I need to create and curate content.” – Sonja Barisic, Director of Marketing and Communications at St. Mary’s Home

“I do like to go to my blogs to get inspiration and guidance on the best strategies. I read your blog, and I also go to the bigger platforms like NTEN and competing organizations.” – Ellen Libby, Marketing Director at Physicians for Peace

    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.

    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.

  • http://www.albumsexo.com go right here

    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.

    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.

    A fascinating discussion is definitely worth comment. There’s no doubt that that you should write more about this subject, it might not be a taboo matter but typically folks don’t speak about these subjects. To the next! Best wishes!!

    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.

    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.)
