Create Your Nonprofit Page on Google+

Nonprofit organizations can now create a Google+ page. Here’s a great tutorial on how to do it at Nonprofit Tech 2.0. I highly recommend following this blog for tech and social media guidance focused on the needs of nonprofits.

You already have a Facebook page, right? Are you asking, “Why do this?” You may find additional followers and interact in a different way. While the Google+ page looks similar to Facebook, Google+ organizes contacts a little differently, in “circles,” that keep your groups of people organized into family, friends, acquaintances, etc.  There is the ability to video-chat with up to 10 people at a time. At this point it doesn’t seem to have the same depth as Facebook but the  number of people using Google+ is growing.

Here’s a brief article at The Chronicle of Philanthropy’s site with a few suggestions about options and page examples.

Check out a Google+ vs Facebook comparison article at pcworld.com.

Easy Website Design Options for Nonprofits

Through working on projects for various nonprofits, I’ve worked with several different web design programs they used to create and maintain their webpages. From my own experience I want to point out the easiest to use and cut down on frustration should your nonprofit need to create a webpage or develop a site you want to edit yourselves. Perhaps for a special project?

There are many good reasons to use a web design contractor. But if your nonprofit can’t afford it at this time, check out these options. These sites are supportive of small businesses, too, and that’s their main users. (more…)

Energy Efficiency Improvements Can Increase a Business’s Profit

On June 22-23, Acadiana RC&D Council hosted a training workshop that trained 16 energy auditors to help small businesses in Louisiana by conducting energy audits.  The trainer, Dr. Joe Davis, PE, provided information in a practical, accessible way and provided hands-on practice and demonstration.

The project, Energizing Rural Business, is also offering incentives to small businesses in rural Acadiana parishes to obtain an energy audit. Go to www.EnergizingRuralBusiness.com to learn more about how small businesses can save money by adopting energy efficiency improvements. Because the bottom line is that a decrease in utility expenses is an increase in profitability! The project is funded through a Rural Business Enterprise Grant from the USDA.

Working on this project has been a great experience for me in both the design and implementation of the project and my education on the subject.  –Rebecca

How Can Web 2.0 work for Nonprofits?

What is Web 2.0?  It’s the second generation of internet tools that facilitate interactive communication.  It’s about collaboration and information sharing: Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, Flickr.  Lists and bookmarking sites.  All nonprofits need to have an online presence but simply maintaining a website is one-way communication.  Social media is networking — two-way communication.  (more…)

Strategic Thinking about Special Events

Special events require a lot of planning time and execution.  When your board or committee talks about an event, do you properly weigh the benefits and the costs?

“We’re not suggesting that events have no place in a fundraising program. On the other hand, we are saying that, unless you’re thinking strategically (more…)
