Schipul – The Web Marketing Company Uses New Capabilities in Tendenci® 5 to Give Web Users What They Want

Dynamic, relational content delivers information specific to the user’s interests


Tendenci 5 Provides Flexibility in Designing Sites that Deliver AnswersHOUSTON, March 24, 2011
 – Schipul – The Web Marketing Company (www.schipul.com), a leading Web marketing and Web design company, is hoping the launch of its newly upgraded website puts the final nail in the coffin of old school “brochure” websites. Powered by Tendenci 5, the latest release of the powerful online management software (www.tendenci.com), the new Schipul website features leading edge capabilities designed to cater to the interests of the user.

“Static, one dimensional websites served a purpose 15 years ago, but the needs and expectations of Web users are vastly different today,” said President and CEO Ed Schipul. “Every person who lands at a website is seeking answers and they’ll click away in a heartbeat if they don’t immediately find specifically what they are looking for.”

Schipul has updated Tendenci 5 to work on the Django open source framework, providing greater flexibility with custom Django application integration and greater integration with social media and video sites. In addition to Schipul’s new website, Tendenci 5 powers websites for Houston Technology Center (www.houstontech.org), Discovery Green (www.discoverygreen.com), Tendenci and YMCA Houston (www.ymcahouston.org). 

Tendenci 5, which is developed in Houston by Schipul’s programming team, headed by Programming Director and Schipul Partner Jennifer Ulmer, dynamically pulls content – including photos, videos, links to case studies, blog posts and staff bios – from throughout the website that align with the subject matter the Web user is seeking.

“The thinking used to be if you build a website, they will come,” said Schipul. “These leading edge capabilities flip that philosophy around -- so when users come, the website will build a customized page specific to their interests.”

The upgraded Schipul website includes a number of unexpected elements. Large images dominate the home page that play-up the work their clients do. Feeds from the Schipul Blog (www.blog.schipul.com) and the SEM Blog (www.thesemblog.com) are prominently featured. And each time the home page is refreshed, a different Schipul staffer is featured along with a different inspirational quote.

“Our mantra is to deliver fresh, relevant, valuable content to meet the needs of Web users and keep them coming back,” said Schipul. “The technology is interesting, but it is secondary to telling great stories.”

Social Media Specialist Ed Schipul to Present “Uncommon Storytelling” to PRSA Gulfstream Chapter

FORT LAUDERDALE, April 20, 2009 – Social media tools have become essential for public relations professionals, but many still wonder how to get the greatest positive impact from these technologies. Social media and Web marketing specialist Ed Schipul, CEO of Schipul – The Web Marketing Company (www.schipul.com) will present, “Uncommon Storytelling: Putting the Relations Back Into Public Relations with Social Media,” at this week’s Public Relations Society of America Gulfstream Chapter luncheon.

 
Schipul will discuss how to leverage social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and YouTube to accelerate PR success. He will also reveal the dos and don’ts of participating in online conversations.

“Virtually every week we see examples of companies that make serious mistakes or miss opportunities because they don’t understand the rules of engagement in the online environment,” said Schipul.

He points to Dominos Pizza as an example of an organization that was slow to embrace social media and paid the price for it. When videos were posted on YouTube showing Dominos employees doing disgusting things with food, Dominos kept a low profile, which hurt the company’s reputation.

“Hoping nobody is going to notice when potentially harmful conversations are happening online is a recipe for disaster,” said Schipul. “The good news is that used strategically, social media can help to create deeper and more meaningful connections between brands and their communities.”

Schipul’s presentation is scheduled for noon, Thursday, April 23, 2009 at JM Family Enterprises in Deerfield Beach. Advance registration is $20 for PRSA members and $30 for non-members. For more information, visit www.prsagulfstream.org.

About Schipul - The Web Marketing Company

Tendenci's story is intertwined with Schipul - The Web Marketing Company. In 1997, Ed Schipul quit his fulltime job as a software consultant for a large petroleum corporation and started his own web marketing company. Armed with a Political Science degree from Texas A&M, a background in programming and a fascination with social trends, Ed and his wife Rachel Schipul - started building web sites that helped people communicate. Years of custom requests from his nonprofit clients led to the initial construction of Tendenci, a platform of tools that most organizations need, or could use, to increase both their communciation and revenue streams. Read more about Ed Schipul.

In 2004, Tendenci received its official name and was sold by Schipul to clients around the world, filling a need for affordable membership management and association website marketing software. Other membership software applications were either too costly, too technical or not robust enough to manage the complex transactions for membership management, email marketing, event management, and donations management. Tendenci was developed to solve these problems and provide a simpler, better, and cheaper solution.

In 2012, Tendenci was released as an open source AMS SaaS product to extend its reach even further, allowing developers around the world the ability to download and build on the Tendenci platform. In November 2013, Schipul officially changed its name to Tendenci to focus on the expansion of the software and the developer community. No clients were harmed in the making of this move - Schipul remains as a professional service division of Tendenci, assisting nonprofits with marketing design and effective web site strategies.

 

 


Ed Schipul to Help Nonprofit Organizations Leverage the Power of Social Media at 2008 South by Southwest Interactive Festival

I'll Share Best Practices as Moderator of “Pimp My Nonprofit” Panel Discussion
 
 HOUSTON, February 25. 2008 – How can a typical nonprofit organization spread its message without busting its budget? Ed Schipul, CEO of Schipul – The Web Marketing Company (www.schipul.com), believes the latest Social Media technologies can play an important role for organizations that understand how to safely and effectively harness their power. Schipul will moderate the panel, “Pimp My Non-Profit,” at the 2008 South by Southwest Interactive Festival (SXSW) next month in Austin.

Schipul will be joined by panelists to discuss the latest Web-based social media technologies that nonprofit organizations are utilizing for fundraising and promotion of social causes. The panel consists of innovative social change experts, including Erin Denny, Senior Product Manager, YouthNoise Initiatives, Michaela Hackner, Girls with Macs and World Learning, Beth Kanter, www.bethkanter.org, and Rachel Weidinger, Strategy for Social Entrepreneurs and NetSquared.

“Social media has enabled rapid response at a relatively low cost for nonprofits online,” said Schipul. “By ‘pimp your nonprofit,’ we mean leveraging new media tools to create best of class bottom line results. Most nonprofits have two bottom lines – one for the financials and one for the organization’s mission, both of which can benefit from strategic use of social media technologies and techniques.”
 
The panel discussion will offer a forum for evaluation of technological strategies, case study successes and failures and an opportunity to obtain feedback and ideas from the audience. It is scheduled Monday, March 10th at 1:30 p.m. at the Austin Convention Center in Austin, Texas.
SXSW Interactive attracts innovators and offers a venue for their projections on the newest trends in technology. Panels focus on how technology facilitates new ideas, communication and creativity in diverse digital and social applications.

Schipul – The Web Marketing Company serves associations around the world with the Tendenci Web marketing software (www.tendenci.com). Using Tendenci can make a nonprofit organization’s Web site an integral part of its operations by automating many time-consuming functions such as membership data management, event registration, e-newsletters and advocacy updates.

The 2008 South by Southwest Interactive Festival will be held March 7-11, 2008 at the Austin Convention Center at 500 East Cesar Chavez in Austin, Texas. Registration information for the event is available at http://2008.sxsw.com/register_to_attend.
