Re: [ocr-135] CoTweet vs Hootsuite vs Awareness

At DisabledCommunity.Org, we face an interesting��dilemma trying to reach seniors and people with disabilities, many of whom are low income and in what I call the 'Lost Generation'��because they��do not have access to a computer or to email or the internet.
This makes it tricky to get information out to��this target audience for events such as this Saturday's Holiday Gala, Resource Faire, and "Everyone Can Dance!" event.
We have outreached using email to the agencies who support our audience -- many of whom are wired, and in turn, they have announced the event in their newsletters and on their websites
and within their communities.
Graphic skills, flyers and posters were donated in-kind��via one of our sponsors.�� We
mailed the posters and flyers to the 20 sponsoring organizations to post at their sites.�� Another
sponsor took flyers into the senior centers, ARC, Janet Pomeroy and other community sites for distribution.
Additionally, we��have been using CiviCRM to email to a wide base.��We also are getting the word out using��Facebook, Twitter, and��ICal. One of our volunteers��purchased some ads on Facebook (on their own) to get the word out.�� (I tried this last year, but could not track results.)�� We had over 200 attendees last year��-�� 2009's photos.
Each year is an exciting new world and a continuous learning experience on how the grapevine works across the generational divide.

Hi fellow members,

I'm the speaker for this month's meetup (San Francisco Online Community Meetup Group Monthly Meetup), and I wanted to pick your brains on the social tools you are using to post to Twitter/Facebook. ��Are any of you using Hootsuite, CoTweet, or Awareness? ��I'd love your feedback if so. ��Thanks!
