  • 5. Initial Conclusions
    • Technology is and will be part of any non profit development organization
    • Technology takes many shapes
    • Your use of it levels the “playing field”
    • Your success can be increased because of technology (more with less!)
  • 6. Creating an Online Strategy
    • A lot of organizations struggle with the idea of developing a meaningful online strategy.
    • Attack this challenge with the knowledge that your strategy doesn't have to be a 150-page tome. It just needs to answer some key questions like these:
    • Strategy — What do you want to make happen? Why does that matter to the organization?
    • Goals — What is it now? What would you like it to be? What is the value of the difference over time?
    • Audience — Who are you targeting? What are they looking for?
    • Channels — What online and offline channels will you use?
    • Technologies — What tools are you going to use?

This allows us to connect our trip leaders who have hiked together with the trails they were on and the teens they mentored. By connecting with our web site we reach our volunteers and supporters all over the country easily and at little or no cost!” Marcus Moran Big City Mountaineers
