I’ve been putting the finishing touches to some touches to some new marketing materials today, including some testimonials. Sometimes it gets hard writing about your business. How you’re great. How you do a good job. How you’re a nice company to work with who also deliver good results.
So it was nice to see a thread of conversation on Twitter, which started from someone complimenting Carrie from Simpl, one of our clients on the video we created for them. Then Shane from Gallomanor and Justin from FutureGov chipped in. Gave me a completely unprompted boost to get the marketing finished!
This kind of unprompted, public testimonial is one of the great things about Twitter. If you want help building up your Social Media presence, check out GetMeSocial.

We were recently asked by Future Gov, the creators of new site Simpl, to reversion a short video explaining how their website works. At first the video was a slide-show of screen shots from the website, with a voice over providing the explanation.
To bring the video to life, we highlighted key points using animated text, added action and video clips into the screen shots and finished off the video with some music and sound effects. This was all done using the Simpl branding, leaving them with a video that sits as an integral part of their site.
On Tuesday we filmed at the launch of the Us Now documentary, streaming the discussion afterwards live. It’s a great documentary, showing how social interaction via the web is enable groups to become more organised, exchange views and ideas, interact and engage. Definitely worth watching, see the full documentary on their site.
Yesterday we were in Brussels streaming the Public Service 2.0 conference, where a wide range of speakers came to talk about their web 2.0 projects, all of which were based around government topics. The conference was organsied by FutureGov.
We streamed the conference live through our ConferenceXtra service, a collaboration with Gallomanor. People could watch the conference live and join in the conversation through a chat room. We had people from as far afield as London, Italy and America!
As most of the people were avid twitterers, we managed to hit Twitter’s scoreboard of most tweeted topics!
