Portland, OR (PRWEB) December 2, 2007
Search engine optimization training is a cost efficient way for nonprofit organizations, which lack the resources to hire search engine optimizers, to learn what they need to know to promote their organization and cause on the Internet.
The Internet is a great medium for fund raising, outreach, public awareness and two way communication. Any nonprofit not on the Internet today is missing out; but, just having a website is not enough. The way people are using the Internet has changed, and nonprofit organizations needs to change if they intend to stay cutting edge.
Nonprofits attending Oregon Partnership's training will discover what Web 2.0 is, how it applies to them and how they can use it to maximize their organization's impact. The workshop is designed for individuals with minimal technical experience. Anyone who has ever done research online, used the internet, or written an email can benefit from this workshop!

- How to discover what people are really searching for
