Convio Common Ground Refugee Countdown: What’s your plan for March 30, 2014 shut down?

With March nearly upon us, the year countdown will begin for Common Ground Refugees to find new homes for their constituent relationship management (CRM) system before the March 30, 2014 shut off of their services with Convio Common Ground – a shut off date that means you will no longer have access your CRM unless you have a current contract extending beyond that date.

What’s your plan for your nonprofit ahead of the March 30, 2014 shut down?


If you’re in need of one, our Convio Common Ground Refugee Assistance Email Hotline is at your disposal.

And take some time to consider the three questions each Convio Common Ground Refugee should be asking themselves as they consider alternatives that will serve their nonprofit into the future.

We’d also encourage you to review our Soapbox Engage Partners for a list of folks who can help with your migration to a new system.

Social media logosThere are so many ways to promote your organization online today.  Indeed, you may be returning to work with a raft of 2013 resolutions to do just that.

Social communities have exploded over the past few years.  In working with our clients in the Support Department as well as promoting my own after-work projects, I know it feels like you have to be everywhere at once.  It seems that if you aren’t taking advantage of every angle, then you are missing something. But just try to keep up with Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Instagram, Flickr, LinkedIn, Feedburner, the new MySpace and on and on and on… not to mention your own website… it can be exhausting.

So get smart about it. Read more »


Alternatives for Convio Common Ground Refugees

For those hit by the news from Blackbaud last week that Convio Common Ground will be discontinued in 2014, the pressing question at hand is the same that any refugee faces: where to now?

In considering options, there are three important aspects of the move to take into account: 1) which CRM platform should be my new home?; 2) how will I move and who can help?; and 3) how will that CRM platform integrate with my website? Read more »
