Why You Need a Facebook Page - And What You Should Do With It
By Alison Zarrella

Local restaurants, regional chains, big-name celebrities and independent business owners: they're all on Facebook. Because no matter what industry you're in, chances are your customers are on Facebook. And if they're not?

Secrets to Fundraising Success
By Bob Bly

LK wrote to me with this question:

"I am working on increasing the success of a nonprofit American Cancer Society telethon in my home town. This telethon runs from noon to 11pm on Saturday and noon to 10pm on Sunday.
