Best of 2011 - Drum Roll, and the Winner Is...

by Sara Spivey, Chief Marketing Officer, Convio

Well, it’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for…our choice for the best Connection Cafe blog posts of 2011. I wish I could connect them all with some pithy common thread, but alas, the word “eclectic” is the first thing that springs to mind. After all, the common thread between baseball and Google Analytics is so obvious, right? But it occurs to me that the common thread is how varied and diverse the world of nonprofit success really is — to do it well you have to do a whole lot of things right, a whole lot of the time. So, for those of you that achieved it in 2011, congratulations! And to those of you still striving for that Holy Grail, keep tuned to this station because Convio will be back in January with tips, techniques, ideas and the occasional cyber musings (those would be from me) to keep you on the right path to achieving success in 2012. Happy New Year from all of us at Convio!!
