Property maintenance in Dumfries

The Ewart Property Maintenance website was created using a customised wordpress template from to provide a simple, navigable website describing property services in Dumfries and Galloway, extending to Edinburgh, Glasgow, Carlisle and Newcastle.

This was not heavily marketed but concentrated on onsite SEO and xml sitemaps to give the content some foundation that could be developed when required. Happily the client is reporting that business is being generated by the site's presence so it is wiping it's own bum or washing it's own face, depending on your idiomatic preference.

Youtube takeovers

Having fun with appearance and reality. These are entertaining advertisements stemming from the WariolandShakeIt youtube takeover in 2008...

Tippex - this must have been fun filming for the various probable range of outcomes users would have suggested - the 404 error raises a smile. Good use of takeover techniques.

Expendables - the comments text has degraded a bit in the image used but the promotional interview for the 2010 movie is still worth a chuckle.

Old Spice (especially amusing are the youtube replies to various tweets and diggs, etc) - more of a character build up using the actor Isaiah Mustafa, a former wide-receiver in the NFL.

Pay as you go e-marketing

A strong 5 out of 5 from Callisti to Contact Multimedia's E-marketing services, yet again. An agricultural client has recently launched a successful subscriber-based campaign to update customers on seasonal offers and pre-ordering for 2011 to a great response.

Contact Multimedia's account based system lets you set up campaigns with great ease, using a pre-designed existing html webpage and an easy to use interface so you know where you are in the process at any given time. You can send test emails to make sure everything appears correctly before committing to scheduling the mailshot. Great stuff.
