24 Hours to an Awesome Website
Know a Linn or Johnson county nonprofit that could use a new web presence?
Each year, Geonetric gives back to local nonprofits that give so much to our community. We work with you to strategize, code, design, write and launch a new website that helps you fulfill your charitable mission. And we do this all within a 24-hour time period.
After your Operation Overnight experience, you walk away with an awesome new website, and a toolbox of expert tips on how to maintain and market your new site. From social media strategy, to search engine optimization, to web writing, you’ll have all you need to manage your new online presence.
We wish we could help every nonprofit. However, we have a few requirements. To be eligible for consideration, you must:
- Be a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization based in Linn Country or Johnson County, Iowa.
- Serve members of the community regardless of their religious or political beliefs.
- Have a decision maker from your organization attend both the pre-event kickoff meeting and the majority of the event.
- Provide the needed source, brand and content materials prior to the event.
What makes our ideal candidate? First, you need the kind of online help we can achieve within 24 hours – we work best with medium-sized websites. Second, you reach a large audience within our community – we want to affect the lives of as many people as possible. And finally, you’re good at collaborating, making quick decisions, and having fun with total strangers. (But don’t worry, we’ll all be best friends before the site launches!)
Going Virtual for 2020
Due to an unprecedented year of events, Geonetric revamped the event to better suit the needs of the nonprofits and the Geonetric team for 2020. For the first time in the event’s 9-year history, it was held fully online. In addition, the nonprofit organizations were selected from past Operation Overnight alumni who were eager to get updates to their websites.
The ninth annual Operation Overnight took place over four months, with one week each month dedicated to an alum of the program. Each event still had the same amount of work time as a traditional event, only it was spread out during a week to make it more flexible for everyone.
