  • 32. Why share what you know? • Be more efficient: – Save time and money – Build tools more quickly by adopting resources that already exist – Cross pollination leads to rapid innovation • Lead and learn: – Sharing is how leaders learn – When others get better, we deliver more mission – Quite simply – it is the right thing to do • Earn income: – Sell your knowledge assets – Create new passive revenue streams by partnering • Build reputation: – Promote your content easily and broadly – Show your expertise by what you share and “like” – Influence others when they use your materials • Build the nonprofit sector: – Open / expand the flow of information to those who need it – Multiply return on investment (ROI) of funders and nonprofitswww.IdeaEncore.com 1/5/11 p. 32
  • 33. How to Share - - To make it easy to find - - • Reminder: If it’s good enough for you to use, it’s good enough to share – It MUST be useful, NOT beautiful • Files or Link? – File: If your organization has the right to license or share it • More click-throughs when a file preview • If you are selling it, only the top-half of each page will be visible in preview • Improved statistics (# of views and downloads; who downloaded it) – Link: If you did not create it or if you don’t have the file to upload • Pick a descriptive title (128 characters) – Bi-weekly timesheet with task time summarized – Gift Acceptance Policies and Procedures Template • Short-description (400 characters) • Choose license for sharing – Free: http://creativecommons.org/about/licenses/ – Paid: sample default or customize it • Use keywords (liberally) – Search Engine Optimization (SEO)www.IdeaEncore.com 1/5/11 p. 33
  • 34. How to Price - - To accomplish your goals - - • Should it be “free”? – Organizational philosophy – Broadest adoption versus most sustainable sharing practice – What will the price say about the “value” people will put on your knowledge? • Considerations if you price your resource – Value created • How much time, money and risk will this save them? – Alternatives • How unique is your item? • Many items are priced at $10, $25, $50, $100. Some are as much as $750 • Set the price on IdeaEncore the same as you have sold it elsewhere – Sustainability • How much time and money have you invested? • What do you need to accomplish your goals … and continue sharing? • Different prices for group “members” – Many set lower “member” prices and “non-member price” – Sometimes free to members, others 10-25% discount for memberswww.IdeaEncore.com 1/5/11 p. 34
  • 35. How to Promote - - To reach new audiences - - • Reach up to 350,000 nonprofit professionals – IdeaEncore newsletter + Partners’ eNewsletters – Items selected based on: • Relevance to partner requested topics • Ratio of downloads / views • Price • Comments and ratings • Affiliate partners • Promote your organization – Individual profile / Organization profile • Promote what you shared – Links directly to each landing page – Link to your individual profile • Promote others’ sharable resources – Link from your “resources” webpage – Social media – Your own eNewsletterwww.IdeaEncore.com 1/5/11 p. 35
