TechSoup Courses has just expanded some of our most popular series on getting the most out of your digital presence. Check out what's new and what's next!
Lots of nonprofits are interested in getting to know who's coming to their site and what they're doing when they get there. Google Analytics can give you deep insight into all of this information and plenty more, but, although it's easy to install, it can be overwhelming to use.
Four TechSoup courses can help you sort all this out. Google Analytics 101 and Google Analytics 201 both cover how small organizations can be more competitive, who is coming to your site, and how they behave on your site.
Both sets of courses are available individually or as a bundle.
TechSoup just launched two new courses on advertising with Facebook. In May, we added Facebook Ads 202: Facebook Business and Ads Manager and Facebook Ads 203: Facebook Ad Targeting to our already popular 101 ($10) and 201 courses. Both are "ask the expert" courses with Whole Whale, a digital agency specializing in helping nonprofits. These courses feature live presentations and question-and-answer sessions with Whole Whale.
Facebook Ads 202 covers the Business and Ads Manager, which helps you analyze and optimize your Facebook content and ads. You'll learn how to find your data, devise a strategy, and visualize everything in a dashboard. Facebook Ads 203 explains how nonprofits can target specific audiences based on age, location, and more refined demographics.
