Technology and marketing tools for nonprofits reviews:
In our nonprofit sector, we all wear a lot of hats. Sometimes, this makes it challenging to organize projects and still maintain high productivity. Thankfully, modern technology has helped to bridge the gap between minimal resources and achievement.
As being an owner of a small web agency, I have tried a number of task/project management tools to keep my project organized with our team members and external clients. There are many cloud-based project management apps, but Asana is my favourite project management tool with an attractive user interface. This task management tool not only keeps to-do lists but tracks progress and optimize collaboration. I’ve put together a presentation of this FREE tool and how you can help to streamline project workflows, to improve communication with your team, or task management and assignments.
Also, I would like to have an open discussion what other project management tools you’re using. Hope you’re not using Excel for managing your projects. 😉

Web Design 101: How to Format Photos for Your Nonprofit Website
Presenter: Osamu Wakabayashi, Zen Ideas
Adding photos to your nonprofit website helps to draw visitors into your content and create an emotional connection. But I have seen many non-profit organizations adding images to their site without optimizing. Having high-resolution photos on your site causes a long delay in page load times, and your site’s visitor may lose their attention and leave your site. Website performance today is very critical for SEO and user-experience factor. I will put a keynote together to not only illustrate how to optimize images but also to utilize free tools, like Canva and resource to enhance your website design. If you don’t have Photoshop, no worries!
