Events management with Soapbox Engage saves “hours and hours of time” over EventBrite

Action for Healthy Kids has chapters across the country. Each of these chapters has events for which they manage online reservations.

“In the past, we had the state chapters using their own event tools, like EventBrite. Sometimes those names would get into our system and sometimes they wouldn’t,” said Anthony Moss, Web and Database Manager for Action for Healthy Kids. “For one of our bigger events, we would have hundreds of registrations. When you think about all of those Excel files that would need to be individually configured and sent to the data administrator for clean up and import…it has required hours and hours of time.”

Action for Healthy Kids mobile-friendly website not just a redesign, an “inspiration”

When Action for Healthy Kids chose to move from Convio Luminate to Soapbox Engage and the Nonprofit Starter Pack, the money saved in recurring monthly fees was enough fund a full website redesign with change to spare. The redesign was far more than a facelift or color refresh. It facilitated a fundamental shift in the online marketing presence of the organization and connects with their audience in entirely new, more mission-focused ways.

“We weren’t mobile-friendly. That was an obvious need that aligned with our goal of making a more modern website,” said Anthony Moss, Web and Database Manager for Action for Healthy Kids. “We really wanted to speak to a consumer audience and make it more visual. We were very copy-heavy and we wanted to communicate through images rather than text.”

The desire to speak more effectively to a consumer audience was rooted in both the traditional strengths and perceived opportunities of the organization: Read more »


Two great ways to get your nonprofit Salesforce questions answered – for free!

We noted in Friday’s post World Cup, soccer strategy, and nonprofit success with Salesforce that one powerful way of fostering said nonprofit success with Salesforce is educating nonprofit Salesforce administrators to do for themselves.

It just so happens that the Foundation has two great ways for nonprofits to tool up, and they are free! Read more »


World Cup, soccer strategy, and nonprofit success with Salesforce

For those watching the World Cup, it’s obvious to see key differences between futbol on the world stage and football of the more provincial American style. The latter is a start and stop affair where huddles occur before every play with each player told where to run, where block, what to do. Much of the time, the strategy is to instruct the team in a way that applies the most force at a given point on the field to gain advantage over the opponent. Conformity to the plan and expert execution is of primary importance. Individual invention, save in very small measure, is of little concern. The team is a machine. The player a cog.

Futbol, on the other hand, is an entirely different affair. There are no huddles. There are very few plays. There is an overarching strategy but it is left to small groups of individual players to orchestrate the execution of that strategy moment-by-moment by responding to their particular situation at a particular time in a particular way.

Switch from Luminate to Soapbox Engage and Salesforce Nonprofit Starter Pack transformational for nonprofit

Transformations that radically improve a nonprofit’s ability to meet its mission can often happen in unexpected ways. Just ask Anthony Moss, Web and Database Manager for Action for Healthy Kids:

“We didn’t have a desire to redesign our website. We just wanted to move over our existing site from Convio Luminate to a new platform,” said Moss. “You almost had to be an expert with Convio to do anything with our previous system. That was no good for us.”
