App Savvy 101
Thursday April 26, 10am to 11.30 – (one place remaining)
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 details here.
Presenters: Jay McCormack works with dozens of Australia’s blue-chip nonprofits including the Australian Institute of Management and the RSPCA through his consultancy Imponna.
He lives and breathes technology but understands that technology is not an end unto itself. He has trained nonprofits in social media and website optimisation.
Jay has developed apps and successful online enterprises. He is an early adopter having Facebooked when it was still in black and white and tweeted in the early unlimited-character era. You get the drift – he knows a great deal about technology.
