Using Blogs to Promote Your Organization

Posted by on July 6, 2008

Promoting an organization’s agenda in the 21st century takes an internet presence. But, how does an organization on a shoestring budget get its information on the internet? With the ongoing Internet evolution, organizations have more tools at their fingertips than ever before to accomplish this required self-promotion.

On Thursday, July 17th, 6:30-7:30pm, The Coalition will host a class called, Using Blogs to Promote Your Organization to teach organizations how to use the Internet as a resource for hunting, gathering of resources and promoting their agendas. The event will be held at the Tustin Recreation Center, 5901 Columbia Avenue in Philadelphia, and is free to Coalition members and $50 for others.

This workshop is an opportunity for grass roots organization to learn more about a wide range of e-topics, including some fantastic how-to for social networks and other tools.

During this workshop, participants will learn: What is a blog? Why do I/my organization need one? How can I build and maintain a blog for free? How can I promote my blog? How can I use a blog to generate revenue?

Proficiency in using Microsoft Word and Internet navigation savvy are necessary.

Class space is limited. Participants must RSVP before July 10, 2008 via phone at 215-387-2734.
