NGOs, not-for-profit organisations and charities face particular challenges in the digital world – but many unique opportunities too. When online communications are executed with the medium specifically in mind, finding, connecting, informing, engaging and sustaining connections with new and existing audiences becomes much easier.
At write-minded we have trained many NGO professionals on how to write for the web and social media, and how to assess and plan new web content. Past clients include The Australian Human Rights Commission, The Benevolent Society, the Public Interest Advocacy Centre (PIAC) and the Law Society of Western Australia. We have a strong commitment to social justice issues and are passionate about using the web to effect intelligent social change.
While we offer a variety of web writing training programs and content strategy programs every course is different – based on your own content, your core goals, and on your team’s specific needs. Web content training sessions can be delivered in your workplace (we work right across Australia and the Asia Pacific) or we can organise a venue for you.
