Rebranding any company or entity is a difficult task on any level but rebranding a government agency requires precise attention to detail and tight coordination behind the scenes.
Florida’s job and unemployment agency - now called CareerSourceFlorida - started its rebranding in January to the current name from the former Workforce Development Board, known in Southwest Florida as SWFLWorks.
Birgit Pauli-Haack, President/Founder of PauliSystems, LLC was chosen as one of the well-known speakers for the Fourth Annual CFCamp 2013 to be held October 14-15, 2013 in Germering near Munich, Germany.
Southwest Florida's Small Business Resource Network (SBRN) is once again diving into social media training for small businesses this summer.
This program kicks off its Social Media Summer Series on Thursday, June 20, 2013 at the Holiday Inn, Fort Myers Airport @ Town Center, 9931 Interstate Commerce Drive, Fort Myers with a focus on “Google+ ...oh yeah, you need to be here!”
Birgit Pauli-Haack, the owner of Pauli Systems and co-founder of Relevanza, will present tips for using Google+ in small business. The amazing opportunities of social media have yet to capture the attention of some business owners and as a result, social media has yet to become part of a strategic plan to reach consumers, constituents and the public at large.
The conversation has changed and I am very happy about that. Business owners and managers realize today that “being online” is part of their business and content is king. High demand for story, data and image sharing online have become a strategic part of savvy business plans and daily operations. And the savviest business owners come to us looking for a partner to take them beyond single parts and who offers a broad spectrum of tools, services and guidance. We share our experience to help build systems flexible enough to grow with the business’ and customers’ needs but also stable enough, scalable enough to integrate into operational processes of a growing business.
In a presentation set for April 30, Pauli-Haack will explain social media's role, advantages and opportunities in today's business world.
We have been working with Bryan to augment his online presence and search engine visibility and advise him about on-site SEO. We also connected his 3Dcart store on http://www.olgatdesigns.com to Twitter. We used the built-in feed and IFTTT.com. A new Tweet appears automatically when new products are posted on the web store.
Recently we visited him at the Farmers Market in Coconut Point and used our iPad to shoot some video footage and photos.

Our Social Media Summer Series at our monthly meetings of our Small Business Resource Network featured fascinating get-togethers and productive, lively, discussions. One of the fundamental principles of Social Media is information sharing and we looked at motivations why people share information with their networks.
At the end of the first evening, we looked at the webstats of a client's website converted to a blog four month earlier .....
On our journey through Facebook Brand Pages, we still encounter Facebook Brand Pages that have yet to add a cover photo. Since March, our graphic designers have created a few Facebook covers for our clients. The collection might inspire you with one or two ideas for your own.
Which Blog Software is right for me? How do I get started? Who can help me?
These are all valid questions! And there are no easy answers.
Most of the time your decision will depend on a few variables you will need to consider. And, sometimes, after writing (blogging) for a year or so you may decide your original assumptions are out of date or have changed.
What does one do then? Start over? Shell out more money to convert your original site?
Our team deals with a variety of different software writing/blogging packages - and we've tried many more. Each has its advantages and disadvantages. The world of Internet communication is filled with trade-offs.
So let' get started...
