Worksheet

Hands-on with Google Analytics Worksheet by Elijah van der Giessen on Scribd

We all have an idea of what Google Analytics can do, but do you know how to use it to help your organization? Do you know who your visitors are and what actions they’re completing on your website? Do you know how to best use all the data provided by Google Analytics?

We were very happy to welcome Nina Cruz and Elena Czubiak from the Google for Nonprofits team for an afternoon workshop with NetSquared Vancouver. They walked us through the latest version and features of Google Analytics, and then helped us roll up our sleeves to ensure you’re tracking clear goals for your organization. Learn what is working in your marketing efforts and on your site so you can make better decisions to further your mission.

Mapping Your Data + QGIS Slides

January’s NetSquared Vancouver meetup featured a free-flowing discussion about how data can be mapped and visualized. Event host Noah Ferguson shared his experience working in the political realm and we received an overview of GQIS, an open source GIS program, from Jim O’Leary and Rick Davidson. They’ve generously shared their slides.

 

If you’d like to learn more about QGIS and Geospatial technology Rick and Jim are also offering a course at Langara.

Langara Qgis Course

Starting with Introduction to Geospatial Technology on Tuesday January 19, 2016, our new program offers five courses that can be taken individually or combined to qualify for the GIS Certificate.
Geographers, cartographers, environmental activists, urban planners, data visualizers, health policy researchers: whether you are looking for a way to access GIS software to
  • map climate change or traffic patterns,
  • supplement expensive proprietary software or use it in the field, or
  • enable your constituents to test various choices from different data sets,
GIS is a great addition to your skill set.
Using open source software loaded on your own laptop, you will build knowledge, skills and a portfolio of mapping projects to enhance your career, advance your cause or communicate your research.
In demand in a world increasingly focussed on visual representation of data to explain, persuade and project, a foundation in GIS principles and hands-on, practical experience with open source freely available software gives you a technological advantage with employers. And a powerful tool for making effective use of Open Data.

Video and Slides: PCI Compliance and Fraud Prevention in Nonprofits

Are you trying to wrap your head around PCI security requirements, how to securely manage payment card data and what types of credit card fraud to watch out for? During November’s Net2van meeting we learned more about the implications of PCI-DSS requirements, best practices around securely storing credit card data and how to put tools in place to prevent costly (and frustrating) credit card fraud at your organization.

Patricia O’Connor, Partner Account Manager at iATS Payments, was our guest presenter and has generously shared her slides and a video of her talk. iATS Payments provides payment processing products and services to over 10,000 nonprofit organizations around the world.

[Slides & Video] Small Changes for Big Results: How to Optimize Your Online Donations

Is your online donation form communicating a strong reason for site visitors to take action and donate? Perhaps it’s time to take a critical look at your online donation form and how it’s motivating – or not motivating – your prospective donors. Research shows that even small changes can generate big results! We are thrilled to share the slides and video from NetSquared Vancouver’s October meetup where we learned more about some best practices that can improve and optimize your online fundraising efforts. This presentation is courtesy of iATS Payments’s Heather Ballachey.

This webinar-style video captures the slides and audio from Heather’s presentation. However, you’re missing out on the part where we broke into groups to test each other’s donation forms on a mobile device. Try it. You’ll be horrified!

SLIDES AND VIDEO: $ocial Media? Using small wins to grow social media revenue

Slides

Ever heard it said “there’s no ‘$’ in social media. Just a plain old letter ‘s’?” Many organizations have found that a strong social media presence has not yet translated directly into significant fundraising revenue.

Shoni Field shares the BC SPCA’s experiences using a ‘small wins’ approach to growing their social media sourced revenue. This video was recorded at NetSquared Vancouver’s September 2, 2014 meetup.

SLIDES AND VIDEO: How individuals are using technology and data to support vulnerable populations

P1010297

Charities and not-for-profits use technology to advance their missions, but what about individual citizens and their favourite causes? A soon-to-be released research report, conducted by Trina Isakson of 27 Shift and commissioned by Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC), examines emerging ways that Canadians are supporting vulnerable populations–beyond giving and volunteering.
