Internet Marketing Bootcamp

And now for something completely productive and "uninane."

A compelling force has influenced me to post this, I know not the origin of this invisible hand. Yet it feels strangely familiar yet surprisingly alien all at the same time. I only pray that my weakening grip on reality and sanity will hold strong.

The Internet Marketing Bootcamp: Learn the Industry Trends

In recent years, the Internet has become a potent tool for selling products or services. It has also opened employment and income-generating opportunities to many Filipinos. So much so, Internet marketing has become the latest buzzword in the online sphere.

A series of seminars aims at sharing basic information on the creative and technical aspects of Internet Marketing. The “Internet Marketing Bootcamp” will run for six consecutive weeks from January 26 to March 1, 2008. Each session will be held from 8 a.m. to 12 noon at RCC Center, Shaw Boulevard, Pasig City.
