At the March 2016 Nonprofit Technology Conference I was lucky enough to be interviewed–along with Oliver Seldman (who was with Advomatic at the time) and Jessica Teal–for Tony Martignetti Nonprofit Radio.

Since this interview is about 20 minutes long, I guess that’s my 15 minutes.

We discussed the Component Based Design process, which we’re currently using at The Jewish Education Project. I’m the lead on a project where we’re combining our 5 websites into one, to better represent the full agency and the work we do. We’re working with Advomatic and Teal Media on the project and we expect to launch toward the end of 2016.

If you’re curious to learn more about it I recommend this episode of The Web Ahead where host Jen Simmons interviews Karen McGrane.

Alison: I’ll share the results in terms of the ways we measure success for Twitter:

  • Applause rate: how much did people like what we said enough to dig deeper? (Measured by the number of clicks Continue reading
