Virtual Volunteering: Promotion
Volunteer opportunity regarding promotion
Volunteers can pass along Traditional Fine Arts Organization (TFAO)'s name to students, classmates, or fellow docents. Persons familiar with the media can contact news organizations to help spread the word about TFAO's services. Volunteers with Web pages can help promote TFAO by downloading the graphic on the top of this page and setting up a link to TFAO's home page.
TFAO is somewhat like the fine arts section of a large public library or a boutique fine arts library. Physical libraries don't market themselves much. They are there for people to use and available for interlibrary loans. They work on expanding their collection and making it available. Public libraries may do some user research in order to obtain regular funding and grants. TFAO has little need for outside funding so we don't focus much energy on that kind of research.
Our section <http://www.tfaoi.org/aa/4aa/4aa354.htm> talks about digital library trends and then gets to our model. Another interesting page is <http://www.tfaoi.org/bookpage/differs.htm> which helps sources differentiate our delivery method from paper-printed materials.
Years ago TFAO conducted public relations work aimed at the media but discontinued it in favor of spending that amount of time and energy towards content development. That's been our main direction ever since. Volunteer assistance would enable us to reach new people so that they can enjoy TFAO's content.
