  • I have created a condensed social/digital media proposal (in order to save time). Please let me know if I need to further elaborate on any part of the technologies. I would be most happy to provide supplemental information or links that would explain more in detail.

  • This is from a survey completed in May 2010.
  • We can support each of these bylaws utilizing digital media platforms, all are free and accessible.
  • These are just a suggested start of how Propeller Club can support the bylaws utilizing social/digital media with zero cost (except for volunteer time = mine!). We can begin to communicate to the greater community about our roles in job growth specifically in the PNW and educate other about maritime commerce. By promoting our members we also add value to the club. Our greatest resources in this club are each other; members are here to network and these platforms help extend the communications outside of our monthly meetings (and help us recognize each other via pictures). These tools will help promote our affiliations w/good causes (SeaScouts & Catholic Seamen’s Club). Maritime commerce needs public relations and this is how to do it effectively and cost efficiently.
  • Blogs are very quick to execute, easy for status updates, searchable, tags, fresh content (vs. website). Websites are good for static locations/addresses & phone numbers. People tend to look at blogs for content because they change more frequently. I can send out content review prior to uploading.
