Have you recently “checked-in” or fought for “mayorship” at your favourite restaurant or retail location? With Facebook recently launching its Facebook Places and Foursquare partnering with (RED), location-based services are definitely one of the trending topics in social media right now.
The topic for March is location-based services and how organizations can leverage the technology for social-change. We’re still in the process of curating speakers, so if you know anyone who is knowledgeable about these topics, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org
I’m thrilled to announce that the December Net Tuesday will feature a panel on group buying sites (like Groupon) and a case study demonstrating the use of conversion tracking in Google Analytics. It’s gonna be awesome, so please RSVP.
Date: Tuesday, December 7 Doors: 5:30pm Duration: 6:00 – 7:30pm Venue: W2 Storyeum, 151 W Cordova
TOPIC: Email communications – still alive and kicking
It’s easy to get distracted by that new-fangled social media stuff (so shiny!), but the folks on the ground in non-profits know that the real action’s in email. That’s where you raise the funds to advance your mission. That’s how you get people to show up to events. That’s how you get petitions signed.
There’s plenty of life left in email communications, and learning how to test, optimize, and integrate email campaigns is (I reckon) the best investment you can make in the online space.
Who am I: Eli fell in love with volunteers in 2000, and has been working to build community ever since. He'll take any title: Production Manager, Tour Director, Volunteer Wrangler, Wagon Master, Outreach Coordinator... even "Marketer"...just as long as he gets to hang out with enthusiastic people who are working together on a project because of a consuming passion.
Lately Eli has been assisting the David Suzuki Foundation with their online campaigns and community development.Â The internet is fun!
