As we know, it’s more important than ever to make sure your web presence
is reaching as many people as possible. But are you making the most of
your online strategies? Are you waiting for people to come to you – when
you could be going directly to them?  Social networking, blogging,
podcasting and the plethora of new social media applications create
great opportunities for the Cultural and Heritage sectors.  They’re
cost-effective, quick to get going and have the potential to reach and
engage new audiences.
