Is your website realizing its full potential as your most visible and far-reaching marketing tool? View the results of our Internet Marketing Strategy Assessment to find out.

This Assessment was composed of just under 25 questions, and it helped participants gauge how effectively nonprofit organizations have been using the Internet to market their organizations. Results were compiled and returned to each participant so they could compare their organizations’ practices with a composite of other organizations (of course, all individual results have been and will be kept strictly confidential).

By taking the Assessment, reviewing the results, and identifying areas in which you can improve your Internet marketing strategy, you too can help ensure your organization’s long-term success.

Take the assessment and compare your results to your peers.
