Virtually Yours - How PTWW Can Strengthen Your Chapter's Online Presence
by Tom Hammond
Presented at the 2013 Prime Timers Worldwide Convention, Columbus Ohio
This workshop reveals the myriad of online services that PTWW provides to chapters. The three major areas of discussion are new chapter website design services, existing website hosting services, and how to upload content to the PTWW website to promote your chapter.
If your chapter needs a website to attract new members and support existing ones (or if your current website is due for a face lift), we offer website building services based on an attractive, flexible template with many useful chapter features built-in. No special software is required to maintain your new website; everything can be done from a web browser. Free, unlimited support is provided via e-mail, telephone, remote sessions, and online self-help materials. In this workshop, you will find everything you need to know to get started with a quality website provided by PTWW.
Does your chapter already have a website? Paying a hosting company can cost a chapter $100-$200 per year. PTWW can host your chapter's existing website for free on our high-speed, business class hosting platform. You can even create a new website using design software of your own choosing, and then host it on our server. This workshop explains the process to easily migrate your website to PTWW.
Do you know that the PTWW website offers numerous ways to promote your chapter to the world? You can upload chapter news & announcements, articles, calendar events, newsletters, contact information, memorials, and much more. Members are notified of your postings through the PTWW mailing list. There is an online store to purchase PTWW branded promotional products as well as a downloadable electronic logo (chapter logo design services are also available). This workshop shows how you can upload content to the PTWW website for visitors and members to find out more about your chapter.
Through this workshop, PTWW can help your chapter create a strong online presence to attract new members and support existing ones. Everyone is welcome; the workshop is presented in an easy-to-understand format.
