Last week, we were honored to have so many experts in our office to help us uncover the special recipe for winning online contests.
Fresh off of their tour for their new book, The Networked Nonprofit, Beth Kanter and Allison Fine dropped in to share some of the findings of their recent research on the 2009 America's Giving Challenge - from successful social media strategies to shared traits among the Challenge winners.
Scott Beale from the Atlas Service Corps also shared his experiences and expertise on how small nonprofits can win these online competitions. In the last three years, Scott and the Atlas Service Corps have won five online competitions and over $400,000 - all with a staff of only five people!
