The conference sessions were not as useful or interesting as I had hoped, but for many the AFP Conference is a great way to push your professional development into high gear. I spent the majority of my day at the AFP International Conference in the Market-Place learning about and interacting with new products and technology for the Fundraising sector. There were some things that I am so excited about that I am already suggesting them to my clients. Join me as I highlight the top five products I found at this year’s AFP International Conference.
#5 - Hummingbird Digital Media
Hummingbird Digital Media allows a charitable organizations to create a branded storefront to sell e-books and audiobooks and receive a portion of the proceeds. Imagine your organization is the Sierra Club. The Sierra Club would create a branded storefront and sell its top five recommended e-books for hiking trails, birding and camping. When website visitors purchase an ebook, the Sierra Club receives 12-23% on the retail price of every book sold from its storefront. Hummingbird Digital Media can be used for all types of nonprofits. The Humane Society could cultivate a top ten list of e-books about caring about your new pet. Whatever nonprofit uses Hummingbird Digital Media, they will create interesting and engaging content, increase traffic to their website, provide useful information for your website visitors, and generate passive revenue. I imagine that Hummingbird’s platform could be used for schools, arts organizations, social services - just about everyone!
For this reason Hummingbird Digital Media is my #5 Product from the AFP Conference.
