Generally I try to keep things upbeat but there’s no getting away from that budget, is there? Cadamedia, a web design company based in Wexford and IIA member, have posted a timely reminder on their blog about how one aspect of this budget could seriously affect companies who aren’t quick off the mark. They remind their clients with online shops that the VAT rate has increased so changes will need to be made on their sites. All members who have online shops should ensure these changes are made as well.
And you may be wondering what brought Cadamedia to my attention? Their RSS feed is included in their profile in the IIA website. If you are a member you should add your RSS feed to your profile on the IIA extranet as well. If you need help mail me at members at iia dot ie.
Grabbing RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feeds and adding them to your RSS Reader from other sites of interest to you is a great way to keep up to date at a glance with what’s going on in your sector. If you don’t already use a reader try Google Reader or I know the latest versions of Outlook and Thunderbird have RSS readers too. (Please feel free to suggest others you like in the comments below.) If you write a business (or any other kind of) blog it will supply you with endless inspiration for blog posts and will allow you to join in the online conversations in the blogosphere with ease. Just like Cadamedia’s RSS feed did for me here!
