Those terrific people over at Southerly Communications finally feel as though they have a website and brand that truly reflects their identity. Their new site launched just at the beginning of this month, and we at Silicon Junction love the new look!
Welcome aboard to Nick Sanderson - local business consultant and Cloud Services expert. Nick has worked closely with 3B Digital to overhaul and configure our accounts processes and tools, and we're very excited that his consultancy has now joined the Silicon Junction collective and offers his services to the community.
If there's one resource the whole Digital Industry seems to be constantly short of it's decent Copywriters & Content Strategists. I don't mean someone who can throw together a few choice words and terms, but someone who really understands Content Strategy as part of a sales pipeline and long term SEO strategy.
Here at Silicon Junction we were very pleased to be approached by Yvonne & Grainne from Hanne & Co. - a firm of solicitors situated above JD Sports at Clapham Junction.
3B Digital are looking to appoint a Support Developer at their Clapham Junction studios in Battersea.
The appointed applicant needs some working knowledge of HTML and especially CSS and will be required to manage our client portal in a support role. Some knowledge of Open Source platforms such as Joomla & Drupal will be of benefit.
Once upon a time only big companies had the luxury to pay software developers thousands of pounds to integrate their software together. Low cost business apps paid on a small monthly subscription now means even a one man band can enjoy his bank talking to his accounting system which talks to his CRM which emails his news letters.
There's a fascinating feature by @emilydugan in this weekend's @Independent On Sunday that I really felt should resonate with those charged with Brand Engagement - most especially in Social Media. It's great to see that, in terms of "Soft Power" influence Britain is now officially the "most powerful nation on earth", and when reading through the parameters and criteria upon which these things are judged it occurs to me that every brand looking to properly engage with it's public could do well to take these factors on board.
So... Christmas is coming; a time of year that takes on an extra resonance & excitement as my toddlers have become proper little people - excited and thrilled as each store and business in and around Clapham Junction starts to get in the seasonal spirit. As a business owner I find myself especially excited at the prospect of what delights Wandsworth Council (@wandbc) and Emma Jane Clark from Gertrude & Ivy (@GoldiChocChick) have in store for us all this year!
The Urban dictionary defines 'Social Notworking' as the practice of spending time unproductively on social-networking websites, especially when one should be working. The discourse on using social networking sites at work is vast and there is no consensus on its use in the work place. Some employers believe that time spent on these sites during work hours is time that should be spent working, some believe that a little time spent on these sites revitalises employees and actually makes them productive and finally, there are those that believe that use of these sites at work should be banned altogether.
