The events organized by your not-for-profit should get supported by media and TV live reporting. This would help the effects of the event to multiply ten times more ultimately leading to increased followers.
2) Integrated digital wallets:
This technology allows credit card data of donors to get stored within their Facebook or Twitter accounts. That is to enable for one-tap fund distribution by a third-party, such as PayPal or a mobile wallet app service.
3) Responsive and flat designs:
