Navigating Organizations through the Web of Online Promotion
NAVIGATING Organizations THROUGH THE WEB OF online promotion
Philadelphia, PA, June 25, 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 17, 2008, The Coalition will host a class called, "Using Blogs to Promote Your Organization" to teach organizations how to use the internet as an excellent resource for hunting, gathering of resources and promoting their agendas.
This workshop is an excellent opportunity for grass roots organization to learn more about a wide range of e-topics, including some fantastic how-to content for social networks and other tools.
During this 2 hour hands-on 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?

About The Coalition, Inc.
The Coalition, Inc. is a collective of organizations and persons who have already demonstrated their individual commitment to finding and implementing solutions to the ills that plague our communities. The Coalition was born out of a core group of organizations that joined forces to put on a youth basketball tournament in July 2004 sponsored by Stop The Madness/Stop The Violence. These annual tournaments have evolved into 'A Week of Peace' and grown exponentially and now include the annual C&C Art and Talent Show every March. The Coalition was also instrumental in launching the effort to rename Diamond St. in honor of esteemed ancestor Fr. Paul M. Washington.
