Resource round-up for April

Tuesday, April 20, 2010 | 11:15 AM


This month's resource round-up has a technology theme and includes a list of top AdWords tips from a digital communication firm, details on creating your org’s own Search Story, a new techie friend for your org’s Facebook account and a website development course, all to keep you on the cutting edge of technology in the non-profit space.

AdWords Top 8
A digital communication firm compiled the top eight things they think non-profits should know about AdWords, including their perspective on Google Grants, landing page optimization and understanding your audience.

Your org’s search story
You can now create your org’s own Search Story, like the one you might have seen from Google during the Super Bowl. Once you’ve created it, you can post it to your YouTube for Nonprofits channel or your website to engage your constituency and drive awareness for your cause. Here’s an example of our story here in Google Grants. And while you’re hanging out on YouTube, check out the winners of the 4th Annual DoGooder Nonprofit Video Awards.

Find a new Friend
If you use Facebook, you can friend Cloud for Good and get regular tips on cloud technology solutions for non-profits. Cloud for Good works with organizations to create strategic solutions based on integrated technology.

Build your website
Whether you’re designing an intranet for use by your org’s employees or an external website for all the world to see, you can learn how to build a functional and appealing site during an upcoming hands-on workshop with NTEN.
