Just in Time for International #PodcastDay, we released our first episodes of our new podcast. Your hosts are Birgit Pauli-Haack and Jim O’Reilley. One of our prime objectives at NPTechProjects is to assist nonprofit organizations with 21st-century technology. If you are not sure what we mean by that, read on.
If you are not using your website as the focal point for multi-channel communications, you may still be in the 20th century. (Bet you can’t read that except in Jeff Foxworthy’s voice.) This means that if you are not linking website updates with your email, and social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, and others you are falling behind.If you are not copying and pasting website content directly onto your site, you may still be in the 20th century. Content Management Systems have come a long way, and it is no longer necessary to send new copy down to IT or your Webmaster, to wait in line for content to go live.
If you think your sponsors do not use email due to their age, you may still be in the 20th century. Studies show an ever increasing use of email and social media by seniors; interestingly millennials are getting more of their news and communications updates via social media, and less by email.
NPTech Projects has begun to record a series of podcasts designed to update decision makers within nonprofit organizations gently. The podcasts are intended to be a light touch, and we will use our website to deliver more in-depth information to those who seek it.
Here are the links to the first three episodes.
We aim for a weekly 15 to 20 min podcasts on topics around the nonprofit website, communication, and leadership. After our first series on all things website, we will also schedule interviews with other nonprofit technology experts as well as with WordPress implementers within organizations. Below you’ll find a form to submit your suggestions or your questions; we will answer in future podcasts, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
You can subscribe to our episodes via:
Now that we got through the self-promotion, here are selected lists of podcasts, I subscribed. All links go to the shows website, where you can find the links for a subscription.
Please share your favorite podcast in the comments, and why.
