Breakout Session 1
Using a Blog to Promote Child Sponsorship
Tom, a fellow blogger, is Compassion’s Internet Marketing Program Manager. It’s Tom’s job to give Compassion as high of an internet profile as possible. In his talk he gave us great examples and valuable tools to achieve that goal at a very grass roots level. Anyone that sponsors a child and has internet access can get up and running with a blog of their very own that will tell personal stories of Compassion involvement while driving internet traffic to Compassion’s website. That’s a very cool way to jump on board with the ministry.
Tom shared some great examples of blogs that are already out there doing just that. One of those bloggers was in the session. Vicki Small has a blog dedicated to Compassion.
Tom shared some places on the web to get Creative Resources from Compassion: Compassion Image Library and Compassion Internet Videos.
Great talk, Tom. We’ll be seeing you in the blogosphere.
