By the Dot Org Solutions team 

It is hard to believe we are wrapping up our third business quarter for the year.

Over these past few weeks, we have evolved and grown as a team. We have added an administrative assistant (give a warm welcome to Meredith!), updated our website, started fully implementing inbound marketing software (HubSpot) and upgraded our messaging.

Despite all these developments, we have stayed committed to our overall goal as a company – helping nonprofits and small businesses take the frustration out of fundraising and make marketing manageable.

We work hard to build plans and solutions for our clients that set them up for marketing and fundraising success. For this quarter’s blog posts, we primarily focused on providing advice and explaining how we can further serve the nonprofit and small business sectors.

We gave insight into operational and organizational best practices.

We understand what happens behind the scenes for small businesses and nonprofits. After all, we all work for a small business and all have experiencing working and/or volunteering for nonprofits. We will help your leadership team and staff answer questions regarding operations and provide guidance from an outside perspective using best practices.
