This appears on the NGV Facebook page. Who could resist the offer to Napoleonise oneself?

Jay McCormack and Brett de Hoedt recently co-presented App Savvy 101. The session looked at both smartphone and Facebook apps. Facebook apps are probably lower on the priority list of many nonprofits but they do offer a way to build on your existing Facebook efforts. They may be a way to boost engagement and build friends. Apps may be more game-like than information based.

A simple three stage process.


Here’s what Melbourne’s National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) has gone with to promote its Napoleon exhibition.

The pictures to the left tell the tale of this Facebook app in action. What a cute, fun and shareable idea.

Voila! Dignified, authoriative and low-to-the-ground, much like the man himself.

App Savvy 101

Thursday April 26, 10am to 11.30 – (half full already, book soon)

apps for nonprofits

Don't worry, get appy.

The world has gone app mad yet most nonprofits remain unappy. This workshop – which is about marketing not technology – will help you decide if your organisation should develop an app for smartphone or Facebook.

Jay McCormack of Imponna joins Hootville’s Brett de Hoedt to co-present this thoroughly interactive 90 minute webinar for nonprofits – both tech savvy and not. On the agenda:

• The rationale for developing an app. Is it a worthwhile enterprise for you?
• What’s possible? What clever app could you offer the world?
• Developing a brief.
• Finding a developer.
• Choosing your platform.
• The all important: how much will it cost?
• Measuring the return on your investment. What can you reasonably expect?
• Examples from appy nonprofits.
• Promoting your app.

One big outcome of this webinar is that you will become a better informed client, likely to  gain more from your app developer. Knowledge = power. Be quick to book. All the details here.
