Award success!

noneWe had a wonderful evening at Stradey Park Hotel at the Carmarthenshire Tourist Association awards last night. Entertained by Only Boys Aloud, wonderful young talent, a wonderful meal provided by Stradey Park Hotel and brilliant organisation by Carmarthenshire Tourist Association.

We were there for the Carmarthenshire Tourism Awards 2011 and with 11categories with at least four or five nominees in each.  So the room was full of very nervous and excited people.  Fortunately our category was the first to be announced – Supplier Business of the Year.  We have a tiny foothold in the tourism sector and have only created a small number of websites for the tourism sector
(www.typoethcottage,;;; so it was incredible that we were even nominated so that’s thanks to our wonderful, and vocal clients. So with that in mind, we were quite shocked to get anything at the ceremony and we are really pleased with our Bronze award.


Google+ Pages for businesses have arrived

Update 11/11/11 Check out this blog at for the “Six reasons why Google+ still rocks”. I think they explain far more eloquently than I ever could.

Is this important? Well so far, we’ve been a bit underwhelmed by Google+, but now things might have changed as businesses have been invited to  create a page for themselves. See the BBC news report.

This maybe a new adventure in social media, creating new links with new and old clients.

Might Google+ take over from Facebook? Nothing is impossible, take a look at the sales figures for Android smartphones and the iphone.

The Solutions Factory has set up a Google+ page, it took minutes. As ever, preparation is key, have your logo ready for upload, and contact details.  Have information ready about your business and also have  something to post.  You can add a Google+1 link to your web pages with the code which they give you.

Then it’s a matter of finding people to follow you… Speaking of which, here’s our link:

If you need a Google+ invite to join, let me know and I can send you one.
