Running a Job board can be not only a valuable service to your members, but also a money maker for your organization. Several Tendenci clients are able to use the revenue from their Job Board to pay for their web site, and make a profit on top of that, by charging businesses for Job postings. Even if you do not charge for listings, the Job board is a great way to network with the community, add value to your membership program, and you can post internal openings within your association.

This article by Katrina Kokoska was published in the Fall 2012 edition of Public Relations Tactics. It is posted here with permission. August 31, 2012 Every four years, athletes and fans from their home countries focus attention, training and resources on the Olympic Games.  And as the Olympics move nearer to the opening ceremonies, the art and science of athletic performance advance. Think of the U.S. presidential election as the Olympics for communicators. Every four years, the pressure on political parties mounts as they work feverishly to exploit every possible method of delivering votes — particularly from battleground states. It is a perfect alignment of political strategy, technology and consumer behavior.  As the election gets closer, the art and science of persuasive communications leap forward.  The PR community must jump with it or we risk getting left behind. President Franklin ...

This article by Aaron Long was published in the Spring 2012 edition of The Public Relations Strategist. It is posted here with permission. In a way that could not be imagined even 20 years ago, organizations have unobstructed access to the entire connected world. Our ability to interact with an audience today is primarily limited by two major factors: time and holding the attention of the individuals consuming and sharing information. As we approach the 10th anniversary of Friendster’s launch and the dawn of social media, it is clear that time and interest are powerful gatekeepers. Today, there is almost too much opportunity to connect. There are too many things to say, show, demonstrate, photograph and post, to the point that it is overwhelming. The term “content strategy” is gaining favor to describe how to deal with this kind of ...

There hasn’t been much cause for celebration at many nonprofits lately. The public has been distracted by the faltering economy, volunteers have been hard to find, and donor databases have dried up. One bright spot has been the emergence of social media tools that can boost fundraising. Organizations that are testing social media strategies are realizing how much potential these tools have. Fundraisers can click the mouse a few times and connect with people passionate about their cause, helping them spread the word, volunteer, and donate. We’re still early in the adoption curve. According to Blackbaud’s analysis of Giving USA data, online donations amount to only 5% of the contributions nonprofits receive. And it’s not a panacea. Only a small fraction of the 180,000 organizations that use Facebook Causes have raised more than $1,000. But wasn’t it just a few ...

Shannon Buggs with the Houston Chronicle wrote a great article entitled 'Nonprofits Should Make Use of Social Networking' on nonprofits and Social Networking in Houston.  From the article: "[Social Networking Sites] work great when the people, nonprofits and companies producing the stuff I like have up-to-date technology on their Web sites that allow fans to easily post information and photos to their Facebook pages.But too often that technology — RSS formatted feeds — is nowhere to be found, especially on the Web sites of nonprofits." Ed Schipul was quoted in the article as well:  "I can't actually do it for you," said Ed Schipul, founder and CEO of Schipul, a Web marketing firm that has a lot of nonprofits on its client list.
