Friends & Associates Newsletter April 2008
Read on for a great offer FOR YOU or someone you know!!!

So it is already April - both professionally and personally the year is flying by.  It has already been two months since we officially launched  We have spent the time adding functionality to the system, adding two new templates, patching minor bugs and marketing.

(Keep reading our newsletters, as we do intend to begin offering simple, useful advice to website owners on topics such as search engine optimisation, online marketing, working with images and more just as soon as time permits.  For now we are just focussing on getting things running smoothly... Though we have added one useful tip for all computer users at the end of this newsletter :)

Changes ...
Some of the changes include: easy changing of the order of the pages on your website, improved tutorials for guiding new users through the basics of updating their web site, a function to send a test email to any address prior to sending out to the bulk of subscribers (useful for telephone marketing as well - you can instantly send out a single issue of a newsletter to new prospects!), and we have also reduced the number of invoice notices/reminders (and hopefully softened the phrasing) as a few people found these a bit harsh!  Coming soon is the ability to easily add an enquiry form to your web site to collect information from your visitors.

A worthwhile cause ...
We have had the privelege of providing our services to Committee Assist (, a Sydney based charity aiming to assist children in Africa orphaned by AIDS.  Their big fundraiser is coming up this Saturday, March 19.  By transferring their existing website to our system, they are now able to easily keep their website up to date.  We will soon be sending their online Gift Shop live!

We also welcome The Four Winds Music Festival (in Bermagui, NSW) whose website ( has taken up residency on our system as well, enabling them complete editorial control as well as access to the newsletter system.  Four Winds offers audiences fine classical and contemporary music and is a not for profit entity managed by volunteers.
