As one of Lincoln’s leading CPA and consulting firms, HBE Becker Meyer Love LLP has the privilege of partnering with some of the region’s most dynamic and innovative businesses to meet their accounting, tax, audit and consulting needs. One of these partners is Firespring. Firespring is a Lincoln-based company which provides a wide range of marketing services to over 3,000 small and mid-size businesses, nonprofit organizations and enterprising individuals throughout the world. In this week’s newsletter, we are featuring a special Client Spotlight on Firespring and an exciting new online resource center, Nonprofit Hub, which provides nonprofit organizations with the latest marketing tools and advice.
Like HBE, Firespring is committed to providing their nonprofit clients with quality services at a reasonable cost. Driven by their mission to free nonprofit organizations from the chains of overwhelming, low-budget marketing materials, the Firespring team works with hundreds of nonprofit organizations throughout the United States. In their endeavors, they have become intimately familiar with the wide variety of challenges facing nonprofits and have developed a passion for finding solutions to those challenges.
As an example of one such solution, the company recently sponsored the launch of Nonprofit Hub an online resource center designed to provide tools, information, and expert advice on a variety of topics. These topics include material on starting a nonprofit, branding, web design, email marketing, social marketing, volunteer engagement, and fundraising. In addition, the Hub offers a subscription to the most talked about content, which is delivered to email inboxes via the weekly Hubcap.
Nonprofit Hub is operated by Digital Community Foundation, a nonprofit organization with a mission to educate and empower people on issues related to technology and marketing. Digital Community Foundation also awards grants to nonprofits in order to improve their online presence. Firespring supports the efforts of Digital Community Foundation, which includes support for Nonprofit Hub.
Firespring also offers a range of free educational webinars to help nonprofits get the most from their website and marketing communications. Founder and CEO, Jay Wilkinson, has appeared on CNN and other news outlets discussing how emerging technologies are shaping our future and is considered a leading authority on the impact of marketing and the web on nonprofits and small businesses.
We encourage you to explore the Nonprofit Hub site and check out the other nonprofit services Firespring has to offer. We’re sure you’ll enjoy working with the Firespring team as much as we do! For more information, visit www.firespring.com.
