Help Give #fundchat An “Extreme Makeover”Posted: November 20, 2011
Since launching #fundchat in June, we have pulled together an amazing group of nonprofit fundraising and marketing professionals on a weekly basis to discuss an array of important topics.
As you know, the primary #fundchat platform has been Twitter. Generally, a #fundchat convo reaches over 45,000 people on Twitter from a conversation with an average of 55 participants. People across North America, Europe and the Middle East have shared their experience, ideas, tips, and struggles.
As the moderator of #fundchat, I’ve always hoped that in addition to the weekly chat, I could create a hub for these nonprofit pros to connect in between chats, to provide a place where they could continue the conversation.
Thanks to a connection made through #fundchat, we have an opportunity to give this website an “extreme makeover” in December. How can we create a destination for fundraising and marketing pros? Here are some of the questions we’re considering:
- Can we embed Tweetchat on #fundchat blog page so that chats happen “in” the blog itself?
- Should we post a calendar announcing for upcoming chats/topics?
- What social media platform is the right one for #fundchat?
- Would users like to have a more robust commenting/discussion area to foster ongoing conversation?
- Should we create clear sections? Guest blog posts, etc.?
- Would it be helpful to have an index of topics/tags?
There are a lot of ideas swirling about how to improve the #fundchat site, but I’d love to have your input. Please take a few minutes to share your feedback – http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/NJL86Z2. To up the ante, I’ll send the first 50 participants of the survey a fancy #fundchat lapel button. You can show your support and your tech cred at the same time.
