Whitewater relaunches website as a blog

first_img Howard Lake | 21 September 2006 | News Direct marketing agency Whitewater has embraced blogging by relaunching its corporate website as a blog, and “inviting professional fundraisers to get closer to our thinking and join us in pushing forwards the boundaries of our fundraising.”Using open source blogging software Moveable Type, Whitewater’s website offers all the usual information about its services and clients, plus news updates and comment from a variety of its staff. All of them are accompanied by a stylish photo of the staff member.The agency’s move to a blog-based site, apart from encouraging more interaction from clients and potential clients, grew out of its series of unusual full-page adverts in Professional Fundraising magazine. These stood out from other adverts because they were simply an opportunity for the Whitewater team to “share what’s on their minds”.

And blogging is the way to give that nurse that voice.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThislast_img
