We are very happy to write that we have received a glowing recommendation in Karon Gould’s new book – “cherry on top”

Wrightway digital has been featured as one of 3 businesses to watch in 2013

Karen is perhaps best known for Gold introductions, a professional introductions company which gained great media attention during the 90’s, being featured on national televesion, Magazines, Newspapers and Radio. Karen was also the star of her own Channel 5 reality TV show.

During 2011, Karen delivered the ‘Department of business innovation and skills’ business start-up programme and has supported over 150 new businesses including other programmes, such as the Social Enterprise Network, NWDA, NAVCA, Bank of America and Northern Lights.

As part of our environmental awareness program and in an effort to help our customers become carbon neutral we have pledged to plant a tree for every new client.

A portion of the proceeds from the first job we complete for all new clients will go towards planting a tree. Trees will be planted by the Woodland trust in Forests around the UK.

The tree will be dedicated to you or your business and you will receive a certificate with its location.

All trees will be planted in public forests as part of a regeneration scheme so you will be able to visit your tree at any time.  Over the years we hope to plant a full forest and offset not only ours but also our clients carbon footprint.

Trees and forests are vitally important for our environment. Deforestation accounts for over 20% of the carbon dioxide emitted by human beings. Trees absorb carbon dioxide and produce Oxygen, reducing the carbon levels In the environment.

Planting trees is also a good way to offset your carbon footprint and it is our first step to becoming carbon neutral.

Visitors using our client area recently may have noticed some dramatic changes !

We’ve completely redesigned our client panel, we’ve simplified everything and made all of our most used features just a click away.

Clients, please log into the client area to view the new client panel. We welcome any feedback.

One of the first things most people do on Linkedin is sign up to a few groups. It’s good practice and aids in networking.

One of the down sides to this (as i’m sure some of our readers will have found out for themselves) is that you will start getting daily updates from these groups sent to your email. This is fine if you’re only signed up to a few groups or if you want to be kept informed of everything that happens in your groups.

For some people however this can be very annoying and its not immediately apparent how to turn these emails off..

Company Director Jonathan Wright gave a short talk at @Rockstar_group event in Liverpool yesterday;

For those that don’t know what Rockstar are, they are a the UK’s number 1 mentoring organisations for entrepreneurs looking to grow or raise finance.

Headed by Jonathan Pfahl (Goldman Sachs ‘golden child’) and chaired by Oliver Rothschild (of the infamous Rothschild banking family). High profile Mentors include; Clive Jacobs (Holiday Autos), Sir Erik Peacock(knighted in 2003 for his services to international trade),, Mark pritchard (Digital look) and Chelsey Baker (media and marketing expert).

Speakers at this event were Jonathan Pfahl, Karen Gould and our Director Jonathan Wright.

The event covered sales strategies for entrepreneurs, Jonathan Pfahl gave a very inspirational talk about how to do things right as an entrepreneur. He listed some interesting case studies of businesses the group had already helped gain success and then went on to comment on some social media strategies that were used by other people to target himself.

A lot happens in a very short time online, Here’s a few things that happen every minute;

  • Over 695,000 Facebook status updates are made
  • 98,000 tweets are tweeted
  • 13,000 iphone applications are downloaded
  • Around 168 million emails are sent
  • Over 100 new Linkedin accounts are created
  • Around 695,000 searches are made on Google
  • Over 1500 blog posts are made
  • Over 25 hours of video is watched on Youtube

The saying “every minute counts” rings particularly true here!

Google got its name from the mathematical figure googol, which denotes the number;

10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,

000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000

That’s ‘one followed by a hundred zeros’

A fitting name for a search engine that relies on complex mathematics to find exactly what people want.

A googol has its use in comparing with other very larger numbers such as the number of chess moves that are hypothetically possible. Edward Kasner used it to illustrate the difference between an unimaginably large number and infinity. Unlike Google’s significance to online marketing, a googol has no particular significance in mathematics.

We are happy to announce the immediate release of our new totally simplified web mail system.

We’ve simplified everything and have made everything super simple to use. The new webmail system is also completely smart phone compatible and has been optimized for all major devices.

Existing clients: All of your emails and information from the old system will be automatically transferred to the new system and everything will be accessible on the same domain. We have installed a clone of our old version for anybody not ready to upgrade yet. We will run both applications side by side until all clients have switched over.

As always please do not hesitate to contact your account manager if you have any questions.
