After a brilliant few months working closely alongside the York Youth Council their website is now live! It was so refreshing to work with young people who want to make a difference to the area they live in.
York Youth Council initially approached us at the end of last year, and they had a clear vision of what they wanted to achieve. They wanted a website that complemented the hard work and effort that they continually put in to make the place that they live in a brighter place for the future.
They also wanted it to look smooth sleek and professional, because although this organisation may be ran by young people for young people, there is no denying their professionalism – they certainly mean business!
With the often-negative connotations associated with the youth of today it was inspirational to see how passionate and focused they are to have a voice to make a positive change.
Feeling motivated and invigorated by the New Year, (as we all are for at least the first few days of January anyway) work commenced in early 2013.
Countless emails, telephone calls and two site visits comprising of more than 860 miles and we have a finished product that they are immensely proud of as are we.
The testimonial we received from all those involved really was the cherry on the cake of an amazing project for us….
“The website design is exactly as our brief and the pricing was very suitable. We were told in clear terms what was possible and the website looks exactly as we hoped. The team was very, very friendly and helpful. We all feel very satisfied and proud at the brilliance of the website.”
Definitely a job well done, time to start on the next new project…

With the imminent introduction of Facebook’s new ‘Graph Search’, it is more apparent that social media is becoming a major part of many businesses marketing strategies.
‘Graph Search’ is essentially a search engine within Facebook, whose results are unique to you, based on your location and people that you are connected to.
So what can this mean for you and your business? Lets say for example that you are a fitness club based in Braintree. You could search for ‘people in Colchester who like going to the gym’. Once you have found people, you can then look at the information that they have shared, and use this to your advantage.
Not only would you be able to communicate with this person, you could potentially offer resources to an individual that may be struggling with certain aspects. For example, if a certain person had posted that they are struggling maintaining a fitness regime, you could inform them of the personal training sessions you have available and so on.
It is not only an opening to conduct market research; it also allows you to find potential leads. You can gather information about your customers allowing you to better target them with future posts and promotions.
It is also key that your business appears within these search results, for example people may search for something along the lines of ‘dentists that my friends like in Colchester’ and by promoting your business page on Facebook one would hope that you would appear there.
You need to be active on Facebook in order to achieve maximum potential. Fan engagement is also important, as the more interaction that is taking place within a certain page the higher on the search results your page will appear.
‘Graph Search’ has the potential to transform your outreach and online marketing strategies, so what are you waiting for!

TomatoNetwork offer a service to customers looking to include company information on promotional usb sticks. These interactive presentations can be set to autorun when a flash drive or CD is inserted into a machine. An icon is included with the executable file to continue your company branding throughout.
Content can include the following:
- Company information and brochures
- Links to external websites
- Music and video content
Depending on the type of content you want to include TomatoNetwork can develop these executables for a very low cost. We also cater for Apple Mac’s with an alternative version included on the USB or CD, but in this case autorun functionality is not possible.
Below is an example of a recently completed project:
Since we launched The Air Gun Centre YouTube channel and videos late last year there’s been over 100,000 views to date! Having YouTube content produced for your site is a great way to drive traffic and get your message out to customers. A basic skin was developed for the channel and related content published on their main website.
