One of the largest web shifts over the last few years has been the increasing move to a real social web. From the ubiquitous Facebook "Like" button to Google’s new +1, it’s never been easier to share what you’ve found exploring. But sometimes clicking the share button just isn’t enough.
For the social web to come alive and really spark change, users need to be given other actions to take beyond standard sharing. We’re constantly exploring new and improved ways to mobilize communities; here are three sites that ask users to do more than simply hit share, but instead to take an action and to be part of something real.
How do you find a reliable provider that meets your organization's needs — especially when there are thousands of hosting services out there, a plethora of features and tools to choose from, and pricing options ranging anywhere from $5 to $500 or more per month?

This article focuses on the high-level management and planning decisions you need to make when you design or re-design your Web site. We'll discuss some of the major phases of a design project, some of the lingo and jargon you'll encounter and the tools and skill sets you might need
A well-designed, user-friendly website can help you engage new members, raise money, and communicate with decision-makers. But creating this site affordably, and finding the right tools to build and host it, can be a challenge — especially when you are relying on in-house talent with little or no web-development expertise.
Your website is a place where people – potential supporters, volunteers, and beneficiaries learn about your organization, but it’s also a place where you learn about them. Using various web statistics and analytics tools, you can learn how people are finding your website, where visitors are located geographically, and what parts of your site they’re visiting. You can judge the impact of a particular fundraising letter or ad campaign by finding out how many times the message resulted in an online donation, a newsletter signup, or any other desired action. Used thoughtfully, website statistics can inform website design choices, help you make your website more user-friendly and navigable, and influence your overall communications and marketing strategy.
