Web Video is the way to go, but I want it LIVE

I would like to introduce Todocast. When you want your fundraising event to be available for all to see, make it happen with live streaming web video. Todocast answers the call with portable streaming services that bring live events to the world wide web.

Ok, maybe buying the dish assembly that attaches to a vehicle is not for everyone. However, if live feeds are what you are looking for and the price tag is not out of reach, then Todocast may be what you’ve been looking for to spice up your web video offerings, online presence, and solidify new online donors.

Besides, I just absolutely love the picture of a pickup truck with a satellite dish sticking out the back.

Oh well, for now, it’s on my wish list.

I have a website, now what?

The key to being found on the internet is being ‘indexed’ by search engines. This means that search engines like google are aware of your site and suggest it when someone searches for you. Building a website with your information on the site is the first step. Additional steps include: links to/away from your site, social media activity, and blogging.

Linking: A great way to gain internet exposure is to have other sites link to your site. This can be achieved through partnerships, affiliations, contacting online directories in your field and submitting your information. You can also use your involvement with organizations, fundraisers, and events to have your website posted in relevant web listings pertaining to the organization, fundraiser, or event.

Social Media: A highly active and updated arena is social media. By using twitter, facebook, linkedIn, and many others you can use the economies of scale to increase the chances of a link to your website being found by someone or indexed by a search engine.

Blogging: The internet likes activity. The more you interact, post, and add to the internet the more you will be indexed and found in searches. WordPress and blogger are great free ways to start blogging.

But be careful, it’s addictive.
