I’m going to be busy this week meeting business people at the Donegal Enterprise Board Enterprising Donegal Week on Tuesday and others at the Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown Enterprise Week on Wednesday. So this is just a quick (late night!) post to say if there are any members who would like to come and meet business people who are looking for advice on using all aspects of the internet in all kinds of business I would welcome your expertise at the IIA stand between 4pm and 6pm on Wednesday 25th March. All details via the link above. At a previous enterprise event I was asked questions about choosing web developers/ designers, email marketing, using social media for business, as well as more bizarre and thankfully expected questions about the IIA and the internet in general!
If you are a member of the IIA and you think you have half an hour to spare please email me at members at iia dot ie.
In case you didn’t get today’s IIA Event Alert I want to remind you that there are only four days left to nominate your favourite business people, companies and organisations for the IIA & Enterpise Ireland Net Visionary Awards. I blogged previously about all the categories but you can also peruse the list and nominate right from there on the Net Visionary microsite. A couple of pointers that you may not have known:
- You can nominate more than once in all categories so if you think a number of companies deserve an award as Best Online Exporter, for example, nominate them all!
- Just in case you are concerned about being nominated (and sure why would you be!) you can nominate yourself! Alternatively add the “Nominate Us” graphic on the right to your own site to remind your visitors. Right-click the image and choose ‘Save Image As…’ (on the Mac you can Ctrl+Click and save the image from the context menu) and point it to http://www.iia.ie/net-visionary/nominate/ and watch the nominations roll in!
- Nominate your clients/ customers – it’s a great way to acknowledge that you think they are doing a great job on the project you helped them to develop. You can bask in the reflected glory and they might even invite you along to the Royal Hospital Kilmainham by way of thanks. A win-win situation!
You don’t have to be a member of the IIA to nominate or be nominated so make sure your opinion is heard and nominate today!
