Should A Non-Profit Organization Have A Business Plan?

Yes: A non-profit organization should have a business plan.

And, hand-in-hand with that statement, a non-profit organization should have a marketing plan to go with their business plan.

I found an article that talked about using videos for email marketing.

Interesting reading, as always. But near the bottom of the post was a discussion about how to hone your video presence and your video skills.

They are now selling single-site SSL certificates for $8.50.

The equivalent single-domain certificate costs $75/year at GoDaddy (on sale in June for $60) and $24/year at ABCInc-Domains.

Here is my (successful) journey to purchase and install their certificates....
