My Podcasts Are On Top

There’s a good chance you’ve heard rumors to the effect that I host two podcasts for nonprofits.

I can confirm the veracity of that hearsay.

Tony Martignetti Nonprofit Radio has over 9,000 listeners each week. Thanks to a burst of activity that more than doubled the number of iTunes ratings because of my 500 Stars Campaign, Nonprofit Radio trended in two categories last week.

Here it is in “What’s Hot” for Government & Organizations:

What's Hot 2

And here, in iTunes’ Nonprofit category:

What's Hot 1

Please give the show a 1 to 5 star rating in iTunes. It’s simple. Start here, then click “View” in iTunes.

My monthly podcast for The Chronicle of Philanthropy, Fundraising Fundamentals has about 3,000 listeners. It’s a short, 10-minute format, compared to the hour-long Nonprofit Radio.

It may be short, but it trended impressively last week also:

Top Podcasts in Non-Profit

Listeners, I’m very grateful for your support of my podcasts. I want them to bring you value and I want you to tell me if they don’t. Thank you very much for listening.

Future listeners: come into the fold. Join the flock. It’s only a matter of time. You might as well start now.

Nonprofit Radio’s 500 Star Campaign

RadioHeaderSquare150The goal of the 500 Star Campaign is 100 ratings for Tony Martignetti Nonprofit Radio on iTunes.

Why have 100 ratings? This will give the show greater visibility in iTunes, exposing it to more potential listeners so more nonprofits benefit as I pick my guests’ brains.

Please watch the video and help the Campaign by rating the show in iTunes.

Many thanks!

Are You Listening To “Fundraising Fundamentals?”

I host a podcast for The Chronicle of Philanthropy called “Fundraising Fundamentals.”

It’s a monthly, 10-minute show devoted to fundraising, and I’ve been at it for over a year.

December’s episode is year-end fundraising tips. My guests are Casey Neese, social networking marketing manager for Heifer International, and John Murphy, CEO of Zuri Group.

You’ll find this month’s show, Creative Ideas for Year-End Fundraising Online, on The Chronicle site and on iTunes. You can subscribe from either of those pages.

Each month I have a charity rep and a consultant, and I pick their brains for my listeners.

In June through August there was a 3-month series on grant seeking:

Back in April professor Jen Shang shared her academic research that led to “5 Words To Boost Your Fundraising.” I also featured her on Tony Martignetti Nonprofit Radio last May 18th.

As you listen to “Fundraising Fundamentals,” please give me your feedback. I listen to listeners.

I Have A Favor To Ask

I’m the aptly named host of this weekly internet radio show, Tony Martignetti Nonprofit Radio. It’s doing pretty well after 21 months. Over a thousand iTunes downloads per show. Over 600 likes on Facebook. And a spiffy two minute promo reel with a bunch of famous people, which I wouldn’t mind a few more people watching.

But iTunes is where I’d really be grateful for your help. I’d like to get more ratings. Today there are six, and that’s not representative of the number of listeners.

If you listen to my show, would you please rate it? It’s merely a few clicks (and one scroll), you needn’t write anything.

  • Go to the show’s iTunes preview page.
  • Click “View In iTunes” under the graphic.*
  • Scroll to the bottom of the page (not the list of shows) and rate the show with 1 through 5 stars.

I thank you very much.

I feel a responsibility to give real value on my blog, so I’m not completely comfortable only asking for a favor, even for just one week.

Here is this week’s value: philanthropy is a growth industry.

LinkedIn and the Council of Economic Advisors (opposite ends of the stodginess spectrum) teamed up to measure the winning and losing industries during our recession. They identified philanthropy as a strong growth industry between 2007 and 2011. Here is the article and infographic.
