  • Oftentimes non-government organizations report that under the pressure of day-to-day activities it is difficult for staff to find the time for promoting their NGO. We realize that non-profit organizations usually do not have several departments specializing in different fields: applying for grants, projects, fundraising activities or promotion and marketing. To address this problem, we need to look for different solutions that those applied in corporations, where the promotion budget often amounts to great sums. At Atalaya we use predominantly free online tools which facilitate brand-building and communication with our target audience. In response to organizations’ needs we created a hands-on seminar where you will learn how to apply these innovative tools to promote your projects and reach your target groups.

    Making a few thought out changes and introducing powerful free online tools is the only thing you’ll need in order to improve your current marketing strategy. With us you’ll begin to uncover secrets about how to use social media to your advantage and what are the major differences between new and traditional promotional strategies.


    Here is the out main challenge: how do we plan and manage our online promotional campaigns effectively with no budget while constantly being short-staffed? 
    During this seminar we will look in detail at who makes us our target groups as well as their activity online. We will choose the communication channel through which it will be easiest to reach them. Then we will present how to schedule a promotion campaign for social media in just a few minutes. At the end of part one we will provide you with some useful techniques for taking on Facebook and EdgeRider. An invaluable tool of promotion for NGOs is “Google for Non-Profit”. We will help you register your organizations in the system and apply for a grant which allows to plan advertisements through Google AdWords free of charge. To make sure you get the most out of our workshop, we will provide access to computers where you will have an opportunity to practice these tools on your own as we go. We also encourage you to bring your own laptops in order to familiarize yourselves with these tools.
