    aw guys, thanks! hey, to update the conversation….

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

    Thanks, Amanda.

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).
