Chicago, IL (PRWEB) February 02, 2012
OneIMS, a leading integrated marketing company in Chicago, joined forces with HandsOn Suburban Chicago to bring an educational seminar focused on web marketing for non-profits. HandsOn, a Google Affiliate, is a local organization committed to improving lives by advancing, promoting, and developing community volunteer initiatives. By using technology, HandsOn provides non-profits with valuable tools for promoting their causes.
Representatives of local non-profits looking to learn more about marketing their particular agency on the web attended the seminar, held at OneIMS’ Skokie office. The one-hour seminar offered valuable insight into growing non-profits through effective online presence, search engine optimization, social media and more. “We were honored when HandsOn approached us about this opportunity. Non-profits do so much for our communities. Sharing a little of what we know to help such them is just a little of what we can do to give back to the community,” says Samuel Thimothy, VP of Business Development.
With the growth of the Internet, marketing on the web has become a requirement for organizations looking to grow. The seminar focused on finding solutions to the unique problems faced by non-profits. From having an effective website to increasing awareness through social media platforms, the seminar addressed the various ways to align a non-profit’s brand with its online audience.
Following the seminar, OneIMS offered a one-on-one consultation for each attendee to discuss their particular challenges. Attendees also received a custom website audit from OneIMS. “We admire the work, passion and dedication of non-profits. Our goal was to provide attendees with something valuable and personalized,” added Bijoy Samuel, Business Development Manager. “When you run a non-profit it’s almost impossible to find time to market your organization. You are putting together fundraisers, attending events and trying to receive grants and donations. However, effective web marketing can be a great tool for any non-profit. From increasing event attendance to creating awareness, web marketing can be really helpful,” explains Samuel.
Recently ranked #4 integrated marketing company in the country by TopSEOs, OneIMS has been helping small and mid-sized organizations, including non-profits, grow through effective integrated marketing campaigns that combine on and off-line strategies. “Our world is very interconnected. The key to success for any organization is to have an integrated marketing strategy that combines print, web and search marketing strategies,” explains Solomon Thimothy, President and CEO of OneIMS.
