The Panels Pages Are Up! [Marketing Team]

If I may direct all of your attention to the top of the page, you’ll see a lovely addition to our menu titled, “Panels.” If you hover over them, you’ll see all of the panels that will be presenting at the Nonprofit Tech Con 2013! Read them all, get to know what kind of awesome information is going to be shown, and make sure to comment, share, and spread the word.

New Eventbrite Page is Up! [Marketing Team]

The new page to RSVP is at: I made a new page here on the blog with a nice little button. It’s also integrated into the flyer as well! When I print out the flyer and throw it around school I’ll include a scannable code that’ll include the link to it.


New Flyer is Up! [Marketing Team]

In the spirit of the conference, I decided to try to find a cutting edge web app to create a really awesome flyer that would look sexy in emails, be social media friendly, and have the ability to print so I could throw it up around the school. The magic of Google led me to Very dynamic and intuitive. Check out the result:

Looks great, right? I can send this out via email, Facebook, Twitter, and a dozen other outlets. Now we just have to finalize which people are in what panels and I start actually marketing!
