e-CBD Autumn Newsletter 2011

Whats new with e-CBD?

Most of you have already met Sally our account manager, but for those who haven’t been in contact with us for a while may not have known that Richa left our shores last year to live overseas. Sally hails from Sydney’s Ogilvy advertising agency and brings with her a stack of knowledge, experience and ideas for all your digital needs.

Gold Coast Business Excellence Awards

e-CBD are very proud to announce that we have won the Gold Coast Business Excellence Award for the month of May, in the category of Information Technology and Multimedia.

We’re now in the running to win the overall IT & Multimedia award at the Gala presentation later in the year – congratulations to the e-CBD team!

We’ve been busy with some big projects…

We created a totally customised (and customisable) group buying system for Big Cat Reality, which allows them to offer a range of diving deals and specials.

It requires a minimum number of bookings to go ahead before the deal expires – if you’ve been to Scoopon you would’ve seen the same thing only our system doesn’t make you pay commissions for each booking!

The Online Shopping Revolution

Well, the rise in popularity of online shopping is unlikely to disappear any time soon, with offline media even sending readers to the web rather than the store!

The May issue of Shop Till You Drop was filled exclusively with products that can be found online – if that doesn’t give you a good idea of what the readers want then nothing will!

We thought this would be the perfect time to hold a second workshop on e-Commerce for the changing retail landscape in 2011.

Join Matt, Nick and Luke on the 14th of June at Bond University to hear the top 10 tips for selling online, the five biggest mistakes retailers can make when entering the e-commerce world, and how to get your website to turn visitors into customers. Find out more at and register to attend online!


Our tip of the month:

How to add a Facebook Page

We get asked by many of our clients how they can add a Facebook page for their business. Please see our tips below on how to get started with a basic business Facebook page:

  1. You will need to have a personal Facebook account to create one for your business.
  2. The first step is to visit the following page:
  3. Choose a category from the options available. For a Small business in one location, select “Local Business or Place”. For a larger business with multiple locations, select “Company, Organization, or Institution”.
  4. Once you fill in all the details you will now be sent to your new Facebook Business Page.
