3 Trends in (early) Pinterest Fundraising

3 Trends in (early) Pinterest Fundraising | We're in Business | Scoop.it
I’m always excited about how organizations meld social media engagement with fundraising, and use the campaign to build the organization. As with every new social media platform, there are the innovators who will experiment with using it for fundraising, such as Carter Gibson on Google Plus and the YouTube-based Project for Awesome.

 

I’ve been watching for this same trend on Pinterest, eagerly, looking for early adopters and trends in experimentation. Thus far, nonprofits are primarily using Pinterest for passive fundraising, though I did find at least one which is thinking out of the box (illustrated at top).

Why Big Content Is Worth the Risk

Why Big Content Is Worth the Risk | We're in Business | Scoop.it
Over the last year, I've really started to see the impact of big content - ideas that take real effort and break the mold of typical articles, infographics, etc.

 

Interesting post by Dr Pete Myers at SEOMoz about what he calls 'big content'. 

 

This is content that does not fit into normal categories and requires more effort than usual to create. But, in theory at least, it creates a higher level of user engagement.

Sensational Social Media Facts, Figures and Statistics - 6 Infographics | We're in Business | Scoop.it
Social media is no longer just about Facebook. Social media is splintering and fragmenting as more users find increased activity about their interests and passions residing on other social networks, such as Pinterest, Instagram and Twitter.

 

Jeff Bullas creates an interesting article about social media from 6 old infographics. Not a bad piece of content recycling.

 

Some interesting stats in here (if you haven't seen them before).

Great Businesses Don't Start With a Plan

You want to start a business. So you need a plan, right? No. Not really.

 

As part of the research for a book I'm co-authoring — Heart, Smarts, Guts, and Luck, due out in August from HBR Press — my colleagues and I interviewed and surveyed hundreds of successful entrepreneurs around the globe to better understand what it takes to be an entrepreneur and build a really great business. One of our most striking findings was that of the entrepreneurs we surveyed who had a successful exit (that is, an IPO or sale to another firm), about 70% did NOT start with a business plan.

 

Instead, their business journeys originated in a different place, a place we call the Heart. They were conceived not with a document but with a feeling and doing for an authentic vision. Clarity of purpose and passion ruled the day with less time spent writing about an idea and more time spent just doing it.

It’s Easier to Listen Someone Into Buying

Blog post at Bob Poole :

How do you know when someone is ready to buy whatever it is you’re selling? Like most things in the sales process, they’ll tell you – as long as you’re listening. Too many people fail to listen to the questions the prospect is asking and instead of recognizing them as signal that they are ready to buy; the seller just keeps on talking. Quite often they talk the prospect right out of the sale.
