Make those resolutions happen | Weekly Roundup
Happy 2012! The Roundup is back, well-rested and raring to go–and we’ve got some ideas for resolutions that will strengthen your online communications in the coming year.
- Spruce up the ol’ Facebook Page: Establish momentum and draw out your supporters with these 17 tips from John Haydon on Socialbrite.
- Mobile-ize: This is the year to optimize your web presence for mobile browsers. Check out this post from Jason Falls for some of the whys and wherefores.
- Change your passwords: You know you’re supposed to do it for your personal accounts–same goes for your nonprofit. Cara Friedman on the Likeable blog has a few ideas to help you get more secure.
- Try something new: Keep your communications fresh by layering new ideas into your tried-and-true approaches. Here’s a great example from The Chronicle of Philanthropy, explaining how the Food Bank for New York City energized supporters with a virtual food drive.
- Learn a little code: Join Mayor Bloomberg (and thousands of others) and sign up for a free online course from Codecademy. Knowing more about code–even just a little bit–will help you talk with developers, understand your own website, and communicate more fluently online.
Here’s to a new year of great communications! What are online your resolutions? Let us know in the comments.
