Non Profit Marketing 360

Last week we promised to discuss the connection that can be made between your nonprofit’s Tumblr site and RSS Readers around the world.

RSS remains one of the great untapped resources of the internet, despite the fact it has been around since the mid-1990s.

Early on, people would leave multiple comments solely on the blog, but now it is aggregated, streamed and accessed by so many different sources.
