Having a strong brand recognition online is an important part of your online web presence. Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Google+ have made some changes on how small business communicates with customers. Later during the month we will write about specific changes and how business owners can take advantage of the updated API’s as well as getting a stronger visibility online for your business by using social media.

Updates to Pinterest, TV Commercials, Accounting and Social Media

Pinterest Business Profile

Pinterest recently offered us a business profile. Doing so our URL’s changed (which was a headache) however our account is now verified and we’re using a business profile rather than an individual account. Unfortunately the old link will no longer work. If you like to follow our boards on Pinterest, the Official CMather Pinterest Board URL is http://www.pinterest.com/BendigoDesign/

Radio and YouTube Commercial

At CMather we have both graphic designers and video designers working within our teams. Our media teams create promotional video for YouTube, TV and presentations. Here is the latest radio commercial turned into a YouTube commercial for the local Bendigo Web Design Team. The commercial will play in between videos throughout Victoria and New South Wales. The commercials are scheduled for the month of March. If you like your TV or radio ad broadcasted on YouTube, please contact us. We are Google Partners and can offer a discounted advertising rate for your business.

Accounting and Invoicing

For the past 10 years we have been using MYOB for all accounting and invoicing. While the product was great, it couldn’t handle our expanding markets. The cost to run and update MYOB every year was not justifiable and we missed some basic functions that came standard in other accounting and finance packages. After evaluating several packages we have decided to go with Zoho. An online accounting package with some nice API features and friendly user interface. All invoicing, accounts, billing and purchase orders will have a new look. Any questions regarding your account, please contact the Accounts Team.
