FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Purple Trout, LLC Announces Non-Profit Essay Competition Winners!

CINCINNATI- December 7, 2009  During the month of October, Purple Trout, LLC held a national essay writing competition for non-profit organizations to win a 6 month internet search consulting services award. After a review process was completed by a national confidential panel of nonprofit consultants in November, the applications were scored and the top three were selected. Purple Trout will provide complimentary SEO and social media optimization services to the selected winners:

Beaded Hope www.beadedhope.org (National Market Winner) Mission: Support of artisans impacted by HIV/AIDS Covenant to Care for Children www.covenanttocare.org (Regional Market Winner) Mission: Advocacy, mentoring, support for neglected, abused, children at risk Melodic Connections www.melodicconnections.org (Local Market Winner) Mission: Therapeutic support for individuals with special needs engaged in adapted music performance

The essay needed to answer this question: ‚"How will your organization utilize social media marketing and search engine optimization to strengthen your message?" The essays were to be no longer than 200 words. Applicants were encouraged to demonstrate need and how they felt a consultant could help them build their outreach capacity and help them better tell their story on the web.

As the largest SEO firm in Cincinnati, Purple Trout helps a wide range of local, regional, and national clients, strengthen their Internet presence by targeting on-site and off-site search optimization factors. The Purple Trout staff thought this would be a good way to give back to organizations struggling with fundraising and outreach during the economic downturn. Staff are looking forward to an opportunity to work on several unique projects that could be developed as helpful case studies for other non-profit organizations and disadvantaged businesses that cannot afford consulting services. As the projects progress, success stories will be shared on the Purple Trout blog and potentially in a nonprofit SEO white paper.
