What you will learn

Inside Start a Better Nonprofit Blog, you will learn about:

>> How to establish your blog’s purpose, audience and measurable goals, aligning these critical elements with your organization’s priorities to help you get more buy-in and support.

>> My formula for generating more blog post topics than you need, so you’ll never be stuck for ideas again.

>> Where to look for the right blog contributors so you can feature a variety of voices and don’t have to go it alone.

>> Using a one-month content plan template to build your editorial calendar: ensuring a content mix and blogging frequency you can manage.

Who this course is for (and not for)

Start a Better Nonprofit Blog is for you if:
1. You are new to nonprofit communications - or you're not so new, but you lack blogging experience 
2. You are looking for help with the content and strategy side of blogging
3. You want a solid blog planning framework to follow; skipping the 'figuring it out' time 
 
This course is NOT for you if you:
1. Have already established a successful nonprofit blog
2. Are looking for help with the technical aspects of blogging, such as site development, tech tools, etc.
 
*Note: this course is ONLY for those ready to roll up their sleeves and do the work – I’ll be your guide, but the results will only come from your effort.

If starting a better nonprofit blog is a priority, then you have no more excuses

Time-strapped? 
Who isn't? The training is broken up into manageable steps and short videos: the shortest video is six minutes long, the longest is 24 minutes. You can watch the videos and do the work at your own pace.
 
Don’t have a budget for professional development?
I’ve priced this course as affordably as possible because I want you to start your blog on a strong foundation. If your organization doesn’t have the $109 USD in the budget but you want to become a better blogger, make this small investment in yourself.
 
Not sure it will apply at your organization/in your sub-sector?
This training is principle-based. I’ve designed it to work for a wide range of nonprofit organizations – and it has! 

Don’t take my word for it

“I now feel prepared to finalize my blog plan and integrate a blog editorial calendar into an organizational editorial calendar, as well as to defend the time and energy required to get our blog going. A great introduction and the right resources to create a plan - and a blog - that meets my, my organization’s and our audience’s needs.”

Kathe Rogers

Communications Manager, The Stop Community Food Centre

"As a result of Marlene's blogging training, we have made some big changes. Our blog content is better planned now. We have new ideas about what we can write - as well as the potential formats for the posts. I just loved the handouts. Probably one of the best – and most relevant – courses I've taken in a long time!"

Markus Stadelmann-Elder

Director of Communications, Maytree

"This course was short and sweet but also provided everything a nonprofit marketer needs to think about when starting a blog. Marlene's supplemental materials and handouts are always so well organized, concise and helpful! I also liked the way she laid out specific steps of the planning process in detail."
