Adelaide business website specialist Alltraders has made online marketing activities quicker and simpler for Adelaide-based young business group, Gr8 Business Connections.
Gr8 Business Connections is a group for business owners, managers and business intenders aged between 18 and 35 years old. As well as providing opportunities for young business people to meet other young business people, allowing them to share stories and build business prospects, the organisation delivers information and assistance on upcoming programs, resources and events.
Founded in 1996, Alltraders uses the Joomla! Content Management System to design and deliver easy-to-use websites that substantially reduce the cost of maintaining a website while increasing its effectiveness in achieving business goals.
Alltraders has sponsored Gr8 Business Connections by developing and hosting its website at www.gr8bc.com.au, using Joomla! to make it quick and easy to manage. The two key Alltraders team members in this Gr8 project were project manager Jared Green and web designer Michael Garratt.
The Alltraders-provided website delivers a range of benefits to Gr8 Business Connections including:
- Ease of adding and modifying articles and site content
- A visual calendar that shows upcoming events and makes updating events a breeze
- Integration of the website with social media sites Facebook and Twitter to build a community of young entrepreneurs and encourage networking.
Gr8 Business Connections founder Emma O'Donoghue said online networking and referrals via social media such as Facebook and Twitter were among the organisation’s most valuable services. “Using Joomla!, Alltraders has also incorporated Facebook and Twitter connections and snapshots of our latest Twitter feeds on our website, which encourages our members to visit our Facebook page to network further with other businesses!
“This is a great way to keep members up-to-date with everything that’s going on, and is time saving for us, as we only have to make one update which is then pushed to all of our social media sites.
“Gr8 runs networking events, connecting young businesses face to face. We also promote other events happening around Adelaide that may be of interest or assistance to young business people. Our website's online events calendar is the perfect way for our members to quickly and easily see what is on in Adelaide and link to the online registration pages.
“Via the work they are doing through the development of our website, Alltraders is enabling Gr8 Business Connections not only to connect and assist more young business people than ever, but they are also helping us create the leading business people of tomorrow, today!”
