Meet Our NTC Green Sponsors!

We’re excited to announce our Green Sponsors for the 14NTC! These sponsors are taking a sustainable approach to sponsoring the NTC and have opted out of printing their promotional materials to be more sustainable. We’re happy to have them as part of the NTC, and as a partner to help reduce the waste and carbon emissions that go along with putting on this event. They’ve shared, in their own words, more about their work and why it’s important to them to be Green Sponsors.

This year’s Green Sponsors are:

Confluence’s Commitment to Going Green

confluencelogov3.jpg

Confluence is a technology and design company, located in Washington DC and Los Angeles. Founded in 2001, we focus on serving the nonprofit sector and provide technology consulting, strategic assessments, print and web design services and open-source CMS implementation. Additionally, we specialize in customizing and integrating CRMs such as CiviCRM and Salesforce Nonprofit Starter Pack.

A long-time supporter and member of NTEN, we are proud to be exhibiting and speaking at the 14NTC in Washington DC. We opted to be green tote bag sponsors this year because we responded to the eco-friendly nature of this type of advertising. Being kind to our environment is a key thread amongst the owners and employees at Confluence. We’re a bike-riding, Metro-taking, recycling, reusing stacks of printer paper type of company. We chose to open our DC office in a Gold LEED-certified building which utilizes green cleaning practices, energy-efficient fixtures and 100% wind-energy credits. All staff are given access to DC’s fantastic bike-sharing program. Our Los Angeles office is located in downtown LA, an area chosen for its walkability and access to public transportation.

Stop by and visit us at the Confluence booth in March. We’ll be on hand to discuss how strategic technology and creative design can improve multiple facets of your organization – from improved internal processes to enhanced communication and engagement with your members. We can’t wait to see you shortly.

Stronger, Faster, GREENER Marketing with Zoomph

zoomph.jpgWhen the Zoomph team heard about NTEN’s green initiative, an energy-conserving light bulb went off in our heads. As today’s premier social media marketing platform, we know better than anyone that conservation and effective business development can go hand-in-hand. In fact, green and social marketing is actually a stronger, more profitable strategy than the options growing businesses had before.

Why, you ask? Today, social media channels like Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram are now where your customers are—no ifs, ands or buts. That means that targeting your marketing efforts to social media channels is a necessity, not a luxury.

However, social media marketing also helps you drive a greener organization, taking old school “paper” marketing completely out of the equation.  Now, you can generate even higher levels of customer engagement with the click of the mouse—and the right social toolbox.

Of course, we’re going to say “Zoomph is that social toolbox”. But hear us out: Zoomph is a single, centralized platform that curates, analyzes, and displays the real-time social media content of your choice (starting at only $15/month by the way!). With Zoomph, you can now identify the right voices in social conversations and connect with them, generating engagement that leads to positive actions (and ultimately, revenue) for your business.

So, when you’re out on the exciting NTEN tradeshow floor, come visit the Zoomph booth to find out how green businesses like Mary Kay, Dove Men+ Care,  and even the Washington Capitals have changed the game with our social media strategy. We’ll show you how something as accessible and paperless as live social content can be used to optimize your presence over the web and at events—all while generating long-term loyalty and engagement for your brand.
