Give me a W! ....

Give me a N!... what does that spell? WIN! WIN! WIN!


This week, we are challening YOU to climb the leaderboard for a chance to win a pass to bbcon 2017 in Baltimore. Have you heard? Robin Wright is going to be our keynote!

Here are 10 steps you can take this week to rise to the head of the class!

1) Reply to a forum discussion in your product area or best practices. (30 points)
2) Update your profile picture. (30 points)
3) Update your profile - write your bio or beef it up a bit. (30 points)
4) Make 10 new friends in Community (10 friend requests = 150 points!)
5) Start a discussion in Best Practices (20 points)
6) Hand out 10 likes on blog posts, forums, replies, etc. (10 likes = 30 points!)
7) Invite a co-worker or fellow nonprofit professional to Community. (10 points - if they accept)
8) Say "Hi!" to 10 people on their profile pages. (10 comments = 50 points!)
9) Check out the events calendar for upcoming webinars and RSVP! (5 points)
10) Feeling like earning the big points? Submit a blog showing off your product expertise or favorite nonprofit best practice tip. (100 points!)

I've added up the points and if you do those 10 things this week, you'll earn...... *calculates*.... *hopes calculation is right*... *if not, someone please tell me*.... 455 points! Make it an even 460 by commenting on this post (5 points.)

I don't really care about points, etc. I just want Financial Edge to work so that I can do my job.
