Unsurprisingly, there were a WIDE range of responses to last week’s How can I help? survey (and yes, you can still participate!). Big thanks to all who have responded thus far. Before publishing new posts addressing specific reader requests, we’re kicking things off with a round-up of ten free web-based learning resources that I personally recommend.
Smart Cause Digital: Yesenia Sotelo creates helpful video updates and articles specific to nonprofit websites and Google Analytics.
Website optimization: in this series of videos and articles, Whole Whale provides an overview of website design, SEO basics, and A/B testing.
NTEN’s WordPress community: if you use WordPress as the content management system that powers your website, you may find this online forum hosted by NTEN to be a useful resource to learn or seek advice from other nonprofit professionals.
Social media + digital marketing
Nonprofit Tech For Good: offers a dizzying number of articles, webinars, and other resources to support nonprofits with digital marketing, including fundraising.
