10 Days And Counting To The Launch Of NonprofitBids.com

There’s only 10 days left before the official launch of nonprofitbids.com, a new site that connects arts organizations with service providers for short-term and long-term projects.

Currently set to go live on Monday, March 16, the site is now accepting pre-launch RFP submissions directly.

When you submit an RFP (it’s free!), you’ll expand your reach and connect with providers that regularly work with arts organizations on projects ranging from grant writing to web design to digital marketing.

The site is officially open for pre-launch business so you can get a taste of what’s in store. And yes, the site needs your RFPs. One of the benefits related to a pre-launch submission is the nonprofitbids.com staff will handle all the data entry for you. All you need to do is upload a copy of the bid and indicate which category it belongs.

Listing your project is risk-free so submit your RFP here: https://nonprofitbids.com

I haven’t forgotten about the providers…

It takes two to tango and we’ll need providers to connect with all these nonprofits. “Providers” include everything from big budget agencies and firms through single practitioners. You can sign up for pre-launch information and a notification when the site becomes open for registration.

As an incentive: the first 50 subscribers get a special 50% discount. Why? Because discounts are awesome…and early birds deserve something besides worms.

Signing up for the launch list means you have the best possible chance at being in the first 50.

About Drew McManus

"I hear that every time you show up to work with an orchestra, people get fired." Those were the first words out of an executive's mouth after her board chair introduced us. That executive is now a dear colleague and friend but the day that consulting contract began with her orchestra, she was convinced I was a hatchet-man brought in by the board to clean house.

I understand where the trepidation comes from as a great deal of my consulting and technology provider work for arts organizations involves due diligence, separating fact from fiction, interpreting spin, as well as performance review and oversight. So yes, sometimes that work results in one or two individuals "aggressively embracing career change" but far more often than not, it reinforces and clarifies exactly what works and why.

In short, it doesn't matter if you know where all the bodies are buried if you can't keep your own clients out of the ground, and I'm fortunate enough to say that for more than 15 years, I've done exactly that for groups of all budget size from Qatar to Kathmandu.

For fun, I write a daily blog about the orchestra business, provide a platform for arts insiders to speak their mind, keep track of what people in this business get paid, help write a satirical cartoon about orchestra life, hack the arts, and love a good coffee drink.
