WSG is pleased to announce the re-launch of ColonieChamber.org, the home of the Colonie (NY) Chamber of Commerce.
The project was spearheaded by Chamber President Tom Nolte, modernizes the web presence of the self-described “fun Chamber.” Now armed with version 4.0 of WSG’s own content management system, a revised information architecture and multiple calls to action, Chamber members and the public at-large can:
Register for events
Read Chamber news
Search for and find members in the member directory
Browse the photo gallery
All these elements of the site are managed through the WSG’s Content Management System. Chamber staff can also swap out both the member ads on the sidebar as well as the ads in the header.
We also wish to thank the Chamber for making us their firm of choice, and we look forward to seeing the site continue to expand and improve over the coming months and years.
The headline of the day comes to us from Tech Crunch, regarding popular applications on the new Windows 7 Mobile phone.
Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should.
So what would you call a website where a GROUP or GROUPS of people visited to share and access COUPONS? Coup-Group.com or CoupGroup.com? No. CouponGroup.com? No.
OH – I know – GROUPON.com!
Yeah, that’s it. Oh, darn. Someone already took that idea and foisted it upon the fine people of the Capital Region.
If you use Netflix, like me and 10 million other people, watch out for a phishing scam. Barracuda Labs pushed out this warning today:
Just yesterday, Barracuda Labs intercepted thousands of copies of a spammed phishing attack aimed at customers of the popular online video rental service Netflix. While phishing attacks are nothing new, especially against financial institutions, this attack is particularly well done.
Their blog post is comprehensive, and worth a read.
We at WSG are proud to congratulate three of our valued clients who were honored by Metroland Newsweekly as Best of the Capital Region for 2010.
Grappa 72 was honored as the “Best New Restaurant.” (WSG was equally honored to create Grappa72.com.)
“Armand and Tia Lule have subtly transformed the old Carmine’s Restaurant in both ambiance and menu, combining the best qualities of traditional Italian and modern elegance. Fresh ingredients like house-cured salmon and crisp greens sparkle, and the wine list begs you to forego the usual California cab for an adventure in zestful Italians.” (Source)
Mark Thomas Men’s Apparel was honored as “Best Men’s Clothing” store. (WSG was equally honored to create MarkThomasMensApparel.com.)
“Mark Goldfarb and Tom Fagan know how to do men’s clothes right. From the minute you walk through the door you feel like your in a an old-world environment that harks back to days of the classic haberdasheries. They carry quality lines such as Pal Zileri, Corneliani and Jack Victor, as well as an amazing collection of sportier clothing, shoes and accessories. Whether you’re just starting your career, running a top law firm or coaching basketball, Mark Thomas will have you looking like a millionaire.” (Source)
Fred Dicker of Talk 1300 AM was honored for hosting the “Best Political Radio Show.” (WSG was equally honored to create Talk1300.com.)
“New York Post state political editor Fred Dicker’s show is a perennial winner. He breaks news, gets interesting (and powerful) guests, and lets the listener know where’s he’s coming from. And his “music Friday” segment, where he plays everything from 1940s pro-Stalinist ditties to 1910s anti-immigrant tunes, is a hoot.” (Source)
We are proud to work with these three clients, and we wish them nothing but continued success.
