Merry Christmas from the team at 3webfeet!
A sincere thank you to all our clients for continuing to support us in what has been, at times a pretty challenging year. As always in our world of new media there have been changes affecting the way we market our businesses. One of the most exciting being the the use of social media in the marketing mix. We are now seeing strategic use of this new media assist clients raise their profiles and increase business. Who would have thought Facebook and the like could actually do this?
Christmas is a time for some of the important, often more simple, things in life. Spending time with family and friends and spreading a bit of good cheer. We hope that whatever you’re up to this festive season it will be an enjoyable and safe time for you and your loved ones.
Christmas Business Hours:
The office will be closed from 5pm 17th December and re-opening Monday 10th January 2011. During this period please direct any urgent support queries to email@example.com
Did You Know? The name Twitter was picked out of a hat. A small group of employees from Odeo, the San Francisco podcasting startup where Twitter initially began, had a brainstorming session. They were trying to come up with names that fit with the theme of a mobile phone buzzing in your pocket with an update.
After narrowing down the options (which included Jitter and Twitter), they wrote them down, put them in a hat, and let fate decide. Fate decided on Twitter (because clearly asking someone if they saw your latest ‘jeep’ is just weird).
At 3webfeet we are proud to be a sponsor of the 2nd Wildflower Sculpture Exhibition to be held in November this year in Hawkes Bay. Last year this amazing fusion of flora and sculpture featured the works of over 40 talented sculptors from the central north island, whose works were showcased in the magnificent Roundpond Garden owned by Julie and Mike Russell – of On Yer Bike Winery Tours. Roundpond Garden was the winner of the prestigious 2009 Hasting Landmarks Trust Supreme Award.
The exhibition to be held on 9-14 November, in association with the Hospice Holly Trail, is the public’s only opportunity to enjoy the stunning garden and be captivated by the works of the artists – including David & Linda Trubridge, Ricks Terstappen and Ema Scott to name a few.

Food Hawke’s Bay hosted their annual Signature Dish food awards this evening at The Opera House Hastings. Great news for our two favourite eateries, Black Barn won the formal award and Deliciosa won the casual dining award. Sarah, Mike and the team at Deliciosa have done a fabulous job establishing their tapas and wine bar in Havelock North. It’s becoming a real institution for locals and lovers of a good food and wine in a great atmosphere.
Eventually gave up my Palm at the weekend and invested in the iphone. It has been the most simple change over experience I’ve ever encountered both technologically speaking and from a usability perspective. Contrary to my clinical thinking it was sooo easy to connect up to all my MS based applications and it’s been a dream to get familiar with. Working remotely as I often do is even more convenient and an unexpected bonus, I can even use it mostly without my glasses! So watch this space, the rest of the 3webfeet team will be next I’m sure and then who knows it may be macbooks?
Lyn and Mike from Gannet Safaris Overland here in Hawke’s Bay ran a Pink and Blue charity lunch and auction today. It’s amazing what these guys get up to in their community. Not sure how much was raised for the breast and prostate cancer societies but it was well into the thousands, helped of course by the actively bidding locals.
Excellent roadshow today in Napier by Carmel Fisher and her team Frank Jasper, Ken Applegate and Michael Raynes. Their fund performance put a smile on the faces of many who’ve suffered difficult times during the volatile markets of last year. They underlined the kiwisaver opportunity, people are mad not to take up the opportunity of free cash from the Goverment. Visit http://kiwisaver.fisherfunds.co.nz
