Getting Started for Local Organizations or Non-Profits

BubbleLife Connect helps you accomplish your goals by making your organization more effective online. Online participants are fragmented among various websites, social media places, email and other online hangouts. BubbleLife Connect helps you reach them no matter where they are. More importantly, Connect helps you reach the local contacts who are often the most difficult to reach online.
