Happy Friday, everyone! Here are your Mixed Links…


Nancy Schwartz needs your input. She is conducting a brief survey to help her identify the messaging and marketing topics you want to master and the skills you’d like to strengthen. It closes June 7th so share your ideas and  take the survey now.

Even though I found myself using “capacity building” to describe a concept this week — and it worked,  by the way — I still encourage you to keep your eyes and ears open for vague jargon to eliminate so check out 24 Lazy Corporate Verbs You Need to Fire.

Social Media

Last month I highlighted some key findings about how nonprofits are using social media. NTEN has taken those findings and tailored them specifically to smaller nonprofits in Social Media Benchmarks for Smaller Organizations.

For those small nonprofits who haven’t gotten into social media yet, Joanne Fritz shares how even small nonprofits can get started.

And another great point on using social media comes from John Haydon in a very short post How to “Get” Social Media.

Mobile Marketing

Today is the last day to enter the AtlanticBT “Gives Back” mobile grant contest.  Twelve nonprofits will be awarded complementary Atlantic BT mobile strategy sessions to better guide where time, technology and resources will be best spent.

In Nonprofits and Their Mobile Strategies, Joe Waters shares that nonprofits are not coming close to tapping the mobile market.

Joanne Fritz (again) reminds us that we need to watch our copy in today’s smartphone dominated world with Get Skinny (With Your Content) for Mobile.
