    Page Wrapper Versioning
    If you've been reading the Luminate Online Community blog for a while now, you probably know I have a Master of Science degree in Information Studies. And as someone who has studied life cycles of digital files, I really like how Luminate Online doesn't let you edit the active version of a page wrapper. Instead you must make a copy, edit the copy, and then ... more

    From 101 to 201 and Beyond
    No matter what it may look like for your family this year, you can't deny that the Back to School vibe is in the air. For some it will be their first year in college, learning the ropes and taking those foundational courses. But for those who will be returning to college, they'll begin to delve deeper into more specific topics and expand their knowledge, ... more

    S-Tag Conditionals – Breakin' It Down!
    I'll admit it. I've been working with Luminate Online for over 10 years, yet I sometimes still feel like a novice when it comes to writing conditional content using S-Tags. So, I've come up with a trick to make it easier on me (and to help calm my nerves). Before I write out the conditional code, I think through what I need the code to do. In other words, I figure ... more

    Wait—Who Are You, Again?
    Last year, my family made a donation to a zoo that we had visited on a family vacation. While I got an email receipt, I never received another email from them … until last week. Suddenly I started receiving solicitation emails for the zoo. And while I do like this zoo and would consider supporting them again, it was very jarring to have received nothing for so ... more

    Are you being seen?
    Thanks to the pandemic, I think I've gotten at least one email from every company or organization I've ever given my email address to. I'm sure you have, too. In this uncertain environment, many organizations are sending out more communications than they normally would this time of year. With all these messages going out, you want to make sure your ... more

    Inviting Previous Attendees to Events
    If the plethora of save-the-date invitations in my inbox these days is any indication, I'd say many of you are already starting to plan your major events for 2020. One of the big questions we hear every year is, "How can I email my constituents who registered for last year' event but haven't yet registered for this year' event?" Luminate Online auto ... more

    Develop a coaching email plan that will help you across the goal line
    While the football die-hard and bandwagon fans alike are making sure they have their game day beverages and snacks in order, I imagine the coaches of the 49ers and the Chiefs are zeroing in on their strategic plays for game day Sunday this week. It made me think about how intense coaching fundraisers to help us meet our goal by event day. Every event manager ... more

    Luminate Online 2020 Adventure
    When I was a kid, I used to love the Choose Your Own Adventure books. You know, the books that let you create your own journey by choosing to turn to different pages, depending on what you wanted to happen. So it excited me when my own children started falling in love with the books, too. To start the new year, I present to you your own Luminate Online ... more

    Marketing Emails You Look Forward To Opening
    A few months ago, I succumbed to the hype and bought a fitness tracker. (It’s a ring, and I love it so much more than the wrist-based trackers, but that’s another story…) Shortly after I synced the tracker with my phone, I got an email from the company thanking me for purchasing the product and giving me a quick tip on how to get started. Over the next few weeks, ... more

    Sandy Beaches & Your Social Media Strategy
    My boss assigned me with a huge goal this year, which at first, I felt like it would have been easier if she had asked me to count the grains of sand in a sand castle.   Ever feel like that with your job? Especially when it’s something as all-encompassing as your social media presence and keeping it fresh and new? Social media is a powerful marketing and ... more
