Salesforce.com as Nonprofit CRM Donor Management Database:  For up to 10 users, "Salesforce.com provide their hosted [Professional Edition] CRM dB to nonprofits for free [as part of their] philanthropy and giving back to the community.. several nonprofits are using Salesforce, including the United Way.  ..

Literally, within minutes of signing up for a free thirty day trail, I was phoned by an account manager to help me get started (not to  make a sell since it was obvious I was a nonprofit). In seeing that I was a nonprofit, she got me connected with their nonprofit CRM manager who in turn got me connected with Clearport.org. Clearport.org is working with Salesforce to develop a template for nonprofits to help configure  Salesforce for nonprofit data management processes (to be released sometime in the Spring)." The author likes salesforce's modules for management of contacts, loans, and donations, with Office integration and an API.  He says Kintera has more features for marketing nonprofits, but salesforce covers the basics for free.

    HitMaps: Awesome service to generate geographic maps of web page usage automatically.  "Ghe display maps for ClimatePrediction.net [and other sites] now include a thumbnail display with a live daily update, which in turn links to larger maps of different views for world, continent, and a few country maps. .. Hits to a web page are collected by including the thumbnail HitMap image into the page. The IP of the page requester is translated into geographical coordinates and stored in a database. Once a day, the HitMaps map images (the thumbnail image and the rest of maps it links to) are updated according to the database..."  Currently about 1400 sites are tracked, and the service is being upgraded to handle more.  I'll try adding it to this site soon.  10:07:19 PM  permalink
