Click to view 2016 November Women TIES Event Flyer

On Tuesday, November 1, I am happy to be speaking at the Women TIES Mohawk Valley luncheon on the topic of storytelling in your business.

I will be discussing why storytelling is important for your business or organization. We will explore some of the science behind how our brains process stories, which ingredients are important for an effective story, and provide some examples that will bring the concepts to life.

Once your stories are ready, learn how to effectively share them.

Special thanks to the sponsors, Deb Coman and the New York Women's Business Center.

The luncheon is taking place at the Time for me Day Spa on Route 5 in Clinton, NY

Sample Scam Email

We recently received this email from China.  As with all good scams, at first it looked legitimate.  It didn't contain any of the "telltale" signs of a scam: poor punctuation, misspellings, a legitimate looking logo or link that when you hover over it, displays a totally different url.

Hmmm.  Is this legit?

Well, it still seemed a little research was in order.  After all, why is a business in China landing on the same made-up name as our business?

Clark Air Systems - Sustainability Website

eKamria recently launched a new website for Clark Air Systems.  The company, headquartered in East Aurora, NY with an office in Baldwinsville, NY, wanted to develop a new site to focus specifically on their Sustainability Program.  They wanted to emphasize the benefits of their work while highlighting the products used to solve various air quality problems.

They also added a blog to educate their customers on the ways they can solve air quality problems.

Their site was created using the Joomla! Content Management System which will allow them to easily expand the content as needed.

East Woods Skate Plaza

eKamria completed a refresh of the East Woods Skate Plaza website in time for the Grand Opening celebration taking place this Saturday, June 21, 2104.

This is an impressive and exciting project for the Eastwood and Syracuse community, spearheaded by the Eastwood Neighborhood Association's Skate Park Research Committee.  This group has actively worked to make this a reality for almost ten years, with the earliest seeds being planted almost 30 years ago.  

The committee had involvement from young skateboarders (some who grew into adults over the course of the project), community groups and the City of Syracuse.

Visit the East Woods Skate Plaza website to learn about this new asset in the community.  And, consider attending the Grand Opening celebration, which starts at 11 am.  Syracuse Mayor Stephanie Miner will declare the plaza open, there will be music, food and a skateboard competition.

Congratulations to Eastwood Neighborhood Association for a job well done!

 

Tri-Delta Resources website

eKamria is happy to be working with Tri-Delta Resources, a technology company based in Canandaguia, New York. Tri-Delta approached us originally about providing maintenance for their website. However, as we explored further, it was determined that a new website, using the Joomla! Content Management System, would serve them well.

As part of the process, a refreshed, more modern and brighter logo was designed for them. This new look was integrated with their existing and newly setup social media sites.

Their new website was launched in May.

JoomlaDay Atlanta 2014 Logo

eKamria had the opportunity to attend the first JoomlaDay in Atlanta, Georgia in April.

The day was full of great speakers.  Jason Weathersby of Mozilla spoke about their direction to provide a Firefox OS for mobile -- with a goal of allowing low-cost smartphones to have the functionality and access of their more expensive cousins.

One of the presenters spent the day walking around with Google glasses on. (You actually don't see the glasses after awhile!)

There was a great turnout for this first time event in Atlanta -- over 150 attendees. We met in person some of the people we have communicated with through Joomla! groups on LinkedIn and shared approaches for our projects.

Polished Geek, a Joomla! agency from North Carolina, presented two very valuable sessions. The first topic was tips for appropriately planning and estimating projects.  They use a very interesting approach using "user stories" -- an approach we will put in practice.  The second session was titled "How to Survive your next eCommerce Project." Polished Geek specializes in eCommerce in the Joomla! world, so this was a very useful session.

As always, the best part of the conference was meeting other Joomla! practitioners.  This is a community of very nice, helpful people. Everyone is always willing to share their experience, advice and assistance in exchange for others to continue to do the same.
