Amanda Blum: Saving the World with WordPress: A Guide for Non-Profits

Published

November 14, 2009

Non profits inhabit their own strange little bubble of marketing goals, work attitude, lack of staff, volunteer turnover and of course, budget. NPO websites need to serve both marketing and functional goals to create engaging messaging and effective service delivery. Amanda Blum nails down why Wordpress is the ideal solution across the board (and speaking of which, how to convince yours).

    Loved the Q&A. You should do a call-in WP techsupport/talk show!

    Where can I get more info about your “how to blog” instruction?

    Thanks, Amanda.

    thanks John. I don’t think the FCC is all that interested in seeing my publicly broadcast anywhere:)
