How to launch your organization online

From Netroots Foundation:

It’s spring, and it’s the season of new growth and renewal! Whether you’re a rather famous political leader running for President, or a future Executive Director launching a brand new organization, here’s some tips to make it a successful one.

The phase between “thinking about it” and launching is crucial. What you do now can give you the boost you need for a successful launch.

  1. Your list is the heart muscle of your organization. So strengthen and build it as much as you can before you launch.

I’m talking about your list of donors, prospects, volunteers and supporters.

Even if you’re starting from scratch, you have a list: your friends, family, coworkers etc. Now is the time to be combing through stacks of business cards and inputting the info, getting your personal email address book, work email address book, and your cellphone contacts all synched. You’ll wind up using at least parts of this list for your announcement email (filter out the people who wouldn’t be interested), and also potentially for initial fundraising call time sessions to fund your organization.
