Bigmouthmedia Appoints David Hardy As The Search Marketing Group’s International Sales And Marketing Director

David Hardy has joined bigmouthmedia as the search marketing group’s International Sales and Marketing Director.

Stepping into a key strategic and operational post, Hardy will play a lead role in the delivery of the group’s growth and expansion programme. Charged with strengthening the company’s sales and marketing operations across 13 international offices, Marks & Spencer Money’s former Head of Online Marketing and Ecommerce expects to hit the ground running.

“It’s a tremendously exciting time to be joining bigmouthmedia. This is an industry-leading company that operates in a constantly shifting marketplace, and every day brings a fresh set of challenges,” said Hardy. “That generates the kind of pace and atmosphere it’s impossible to avoid getting caught up in.”

Prior to his stint driving Marks & Spencer Money’s highly successful ecommerce strategy, Hardy served as Online Retailing and Marketing Director at Hilton Hotels International. A highly experienced marketing professional, he previously occupied senior roles at American Airlines and HSBC.

“After over 13 years client side this is my first role with an agency – I was convinced to cross the line because of the strengths of the bigmouthmedia operation and its plans for the future,” added Hardy.

“After several years working with bigmouthmedia as a client I’m in a good position to know this. Whilst the view is slightly different on the agency side, it’s an exciting and dynamic time to be in e-commerce irrespective of whether you’re an agency or client, and I’m fortunate to be in a position to see both perspectives.”

Bigmouthmedia Group CEO Steve Leach added: “We’re delighted to be working with David. He brings a wealth of international business experience to the senior management team that I’m confident will deliver real benefits as we continue to drive the group forward.”

Rolex Day Date President:

Introduced at the Basel Fair in 1956, the Rolex Day-Date President became one of the flagship models of Rolex. Customers appreciated this watch for its uniqueness in showing both the date and the day on the dial unlike previous models. Today, the day is spelled out in 26 different languages, which greatly increased the overall market for this watch. Read the full article at:
http://www.melrosejewelers.co.uk/con…

Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust:

The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust always has been an extremely popular model amongst Rolex enthusiasts. In fact, it is one of Rolex’s flagship models. Introduced in 1945, this watch carried a great deal of significance as it was launched by Rolex to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the founding of Wilsdorf & Davis. It was one of the first Rolex models to carry a date display on its dial through an aperture at the 3 o’clock position. The movement used in this model functioned accurately during the date change, which was triggered using stored energy. Read the full article at: http://www.melrosejewelers.co.uk/conte…

Rolex Submariner:

The Rolex Submariner, featuring a uni-directional elapse time bezel, has been known for its great performance and supreme endurance at extreme temperatures and even in the ocean depths. It falls under the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Professional Line. Introduced officially at the Basel Spring Watch Fair in 1954, it has thrived in the market for over 50 years. Read the full article at:
http://www.melrosejewelers.co.uk/content/rolex_education_rolex_submariner_quick_review.htm

Rolex Daytona:

The Rolex Cosmograph Daytona is a chronograph that performs an additional function as a stopwatch. This model has a separate second hand, which can be started, stopped and reset to zero with the help of push buttons on the side of the case. Considered one of the most popular Rolex sport models, the Rolex Cosmograph “Daytona” is truly exceptional. The term “Cosmograph” was coined by Rolex when it decided to come out with an improved version of its earlier line of chronograph watches. Read the full article at:
http://www.melrosejewelers.co.uk/content/rolex_education_rolex_cosmograph_daytona.htm

Rolex Identification

The Rolex counterfeit (Rolex replica) industry is growing at an ever-increasing pace. This criminal expansion poses a real threat to Rolex because it adversely affects the market for genuine Rolex watches. Counterfeit Rolex watches also cloud the enthusiasm and faith of Rolex enthusiasts around the world. Such negativity is especially true in the case of high-end fakes, which are sold as genuine Rolex watches. Although these counterfeits may appear similar from a distance, they can in no way match a genuine Rolex in terms of functionality, performance and precision. Read the full article at:

Missing person Blog to be launched by Gill Whitley in collaboration with Tracesmart with the aim of helping reuniting people with their loved ones

Tracesmart is to launch a new website on behalf of ‘Searching for a Memory’, a voluntary tracing service run by Gill Whitley. The organisation is sponsored by Tracesmart, the leading online people search facility, and consists of Gill and a team of three other tracers working from home; their aim is to help find relatives or friends for people who have no idea where to start.

Gill, the founder of the service, has been tracing families since 1998 and since then has helped thousands of people hoping to find relatives. The new blog style website will allow visitors to share with Gill as she posts her success stories, and post comments or questions live on the site allowing her to reply personally.

The blog has been created as part of the collaboration between Tracesmart and the ‘Searching for a Memory’ team, an alliance which began early in 2008, and has been flourishing ever since. The union was formed with the aim of becoming an exceptional team in the people search arena, mixing the experience of the research team together with Tracesmart’s extensive online people search facility. Tracesmart’s Missing Person campaign launched in February of this year, with the intention of raising the profile of its vast electoral roll search facility, resulted in countless enquiries and in some cases, the information offered by the person searching was very limited, consequently it became beneficial to refer the trace to Gill and her team.

Gill commented, “I started Searching for a Memory in recognition of my late mother-in-law, who had been estranged from my husband for 34 years. I found her 11 months before she died, and thought as a tribute to her I would continue tracing to help other people find their loved ones. Over the years I would like to think I have had a great deal of success. I have used various resources during this time, but none better than Tracesmart’s excellent online address search and people search facility.” Gill added, “The facility makes tracing so much easier compared to the earlier days and can very easily be used by anyone.”

Tracesmart’s Communications Manager, Owen Roberts, commented, “The ‘Searching for a Memory’ website has been created by our in-house technical team to help Gill, we are very pleased to be able to facilitate and help Gill and her team because of the excellent voluntary service they provide. I anticipate many people will interact with the new website, and enquire with Gill for help with any Missing Person search, with the hope people will also share their success stories or questions with each other on the blog.”

  • Gill Whitley – Gill is an experienced tracer and has successfully reunited thousands of individuals through her Searching for a Memory project. Her association with the weekly Missing and Found column is published each Saturday in the Daily Mail.
  • Owen Roberts has worked in the creative, advertising and communications industries for over 25 years and is the voice of Tracesmart. Heading up the communications team, he raises the public awareness of the company through various media driven PR campaigns.

Bigmouthmedia launches campaign to promote search marketing as career option

Bigmouthmedia, independent digital marketing agency, has launched a new cross-industry campaign to promote a career in Search and digital marketing to university graduates.

The move follows the recent publication of survey results revealing that the majority of Scotland’s new graduates feel that higher education should do more to connect students to potential opportunities in emerging industries. The research, which was conducted earlier this year by bigmouthmedia, also revealed students’ beliefs that universities are failing to adequately prepare leavers for life in the real world.

Despite the fact that search marketing has grown from nothing to become a £1.2bn a year business in the last decade, until now none of the UK’s careers advisory bodies have listed search engine optimisation or digital marketing amongst the options available to graduates. However, following consultations with bigmouthmedia, Careers Scotland have now updated their records to reflect the industry’s growing significance.

While continuing to work with the relevant sector Skills Councils in Scotland to ensure that information is available to entry-level job seekers, bigmouthmedia now plans to carry the campaign to the rest of the UK and Europe.

“Every year companies like bigmouthmedia hire a raft of recent graduates, yet our experience attending university careers fairs tells us that many new entrants to the workforce are simply unaware of the opportunities available in the sector,” said Lyndsay Menzies, Managing Director of bigmouthmedia UK.

She continued, “With a wide range of roles on offer the search marketing sector can offer a career path to both science graduates with Maths, Statistics or IT related degrees and social sciences students with creative, language and communications skills. We believe that new career paths like this have a vital role to play in the economy, and will continue campaigning to ensure that the relevant advisory bodies are kept up to date.”

“It’s often been joked in the search marketing space that no one wanted to be a search marketer when they grew up. Such jobs didn’t exist. Now they do, and it’s great to see that careers services are catching up to help provide education for this important career,” said Danny Sullivan, Editor In Chief, SearchEngineLand.com.

Having two guests’ lists for your wedding, one for guests who can attend and one for virtual guests will help you save half the money you would spend if all the guests physically attended your wedding

By having two wedding guest lists, one for those can physically attend your wedding and one for those who can attend virtually; you can cut the cost of your wedding in half!!

LiveWeddingBroadcast.TV, a live wedding broadcast service offering of WebWax.Net, allows Brides and Grooms to save money on their wedding in these hard economic times. It’s no doubt that everyone is watching how they spend their money not sure of what the future holds. According to AOL and the National Association of Catering Executives, “people are increasingly watching their pennies. They are booking their affairs in off-peak times and reducing the number of guests they invite to their wedding.” Brides and Grooms, who already set their wedding dates before the hard times hit, are finding themselves more challenged.

One major cost associated with weddings is the cost of the reception. Reception costs are directly proportional to the number of invited guests that can attend the wedding. The Wedding Report statistics show that for weddings having less than 50 guests, the average reception cost is $10,600. Weddings with 50-100 guests, reception costs average $17,500; 100-200 guests, $27,000; over 200 guests, $57,000. One choice is that Brides and Grooms can choose to invite fewer guests to the wedding event in an effort to save significant money for their wedding. However, shouldn’t Brides and Grooms invite anyone they want since it is their wedding day?

By having two guest lists and choosing to invite guests online through the use of LiveWeddingBroadcast.TV, Brides and Grooms can invite all of their friends and family to share in their special day. For as little as $150, you can invite up to 25 guests online; or for $250, you can invite up to 50 guests; or create a custom package to meet your needs.

Another new issue facing Brides and Grooms are that more of their invited guests are making the decision to not attend their wedding due to budget constraints. Although they want to attend the wedding, many people can’t afford unexpected hotel expenses, extra gas expenses, and airfare to wedding locations. LiveWeddingBroadcast.TV is the best solution for Brides and Grooms faced with these challenges, easing the financial burden for their guests. The money that the guests save from not having to travel to the wedding can be used to purchase the newly married couple, a wedding gift through the online registry in the LiveWeddingBroadcast.TV service.

LiveWeddingBroadcast.TV is the perfect solution for those couples who can’t afford to invite all the guests that they want to invite or have guests who can’t afford to physically attend the wedding. For the online guests, it is just like being there since it is broadcast live in real-time. LiveWeddingBroadcast.TV is also a great solution for those couples who have friends or relatives serving overseas.

Now Brides and Grooms can save money, have the wedding of your dreams, and have everyone there to share their most special day with them!!!!

Tracesmart Aim To Make IOD Fraud A Thing Of The Past

Making a concerted effort to stamp out Impersonation of the Deceased (IOD) fraud, Tracesmart, leading suppliers of identity verification tools, have this week launched Existence – a new suite of services with the potential to eliminate IOD fraud.

IOD is a form of identity fraud – it is estimated by the Home Office Identity Fraud Steering Committee, that identity fraud costs the UK economy £1.7 billion annually. Whilst IOD fraud has historically been hard to tackle due to the lack of death records being made available, recent changes in legislation have allowed the UK General Register Offices (GRO) to release death registration information (DRI) to commercial bodies with the aim of preventing fraud. It is this move that has enabled Tracesmart to develop their suite of services which will tackle IOD fraud head on.

Combining in-depth mortality screening and residency verification, the service allows users to ascertain whether an individual is alive and if they reside at their given address. Paul Weathersby, Technical Director at Tracesmart, commented on the data which drives these checks.

“The mortality screening element of our Existence services draws upon the GRO’s DRI data and the residency verifier calls upon a variety of consumer datasets including historic Electoral Rolls, leading gone away files and BT OSIS amongst others. The combination of these checks allows us to confidently identify deceased individuals and gone aways.”

The Existence suite comprises three services with which clients can conduct existence checks. Existence Search is an online facility which can be used to conduct single ad-hoc checks; Existence Batch is a batch screening service where multiple persons can be verified and the third, and possibly most significant service, is Existence Alert – an early warning system that notifies users of mortalities at the earliest possible opportunity.

Tracesmart has long provided tools for conducting identity checks and has a strong history in the field of fraud prevention. The combination of this experience and access to DRI will enable the Existence services to effectively help put an end to IOD fraud. Mike Trezise, Managing Director at Tracesmart, has already seen a high volume of interest in the product.

“Prior to launch we approached several key clients in the pension and financial sectors to gauge market interest in the product. As we suspected, the demand is most certainly there and we already have prominent pensions administrators and large schemes utilising the system to replace certificate of existence exercises, and many in the financial sector are employing it as part of their know your customer checks. Preventing IOD fraud will save businesses considerable amounts of money and protect consumers from both fiscal and emotional harm.”

Small And Mid-Size Businesses Can Decrease Expenses, Increase Productivity And Remain Profitable Despite The Current Economic Crisis With Hosted Messaging And Collaboration Solutions

123Together.com – a mindSHIFT Technologies company and the leading provider of hosted enterprise-class messaging and collaboration solutions such as hosted Exchange Server 2007 and Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 — today announced that it has eliminated setup fees for all new customers who sign up for its hosted Exchange Server service, available immediately.

“Our goal is to help businesses of all sizes remain profitable despite the current economic downturn,” said Ravi Agarwal, founder and Senior Executive Officer of 123Together.com, a mindSHIFT company. “By eliminating all setup fees for our hosted Exchange Server services, we make it possible for businesses, regardless of their size, to make use of the functionality that this industry-leading, enterprise-class messaging and collaboration application provides without having to incur significant financial expenses or hire additional personnel.”

As a result of the current economic downturn, many small and mid-size businesses (SMBs) are required to decrease overhead, cut operational costs and reallocate existing funds to get the most value from every dollar they spend. At the same time, business owners expect increased productivity and efficiency among their existing employees, with additional human and financial resources unlikely or impossible.

The economic climate has forced SMBs to search for more cost-effective alternatives for critical business applications, such as email, to maximize the effectiveness of existing business resources without having to incur any additional expenses. Hosted software services such as 123Together.com’s hosted Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 have become viable alternatives to in-house email server deployment and can be utilized in exactly the same manner as the in-house application but at a significantly reduced cost.

In order to assist businesses even further and help their employees remain productive, 123Together.com has eliminated the setup fee requirement for all shared and dedicated hosted Exchange packages and any additional mailboxes activated through the month of November 2008.

Many SMBs do not have the financial or human resources or even the time necessary to deploy Microsoft Exchange Server in-house, as it requires significant investments in hardware and software, training and hiring of IT personnel, as well as around-the-clock server maintenance, monitoring and upgrades. 123Together.com’s new special offer makes it possible for SMBs to reap the same benefits from this industry-leading email application as most Fortune 500 companies but at a significantly reduced cost. It provides employees with anytime, anywhere access to their business e-mail no matter where they may be, as well as 2-way wireless synchronization of mail, calendar, contacts, notes and tasks with most mobile devices, including BlackBerry and Apple iPhone 3G.

In addition, 123Together.com offers 24×7 live U.S.-based technical support and 24×7 server maintenance, monitoring and upgrades, enabling businesses without an internal technical staff to profit from this service. All hosted Exchange users also receive free Outlook 2007.

123Together.com’s offer of no setup fees on all of its hosted Exchange packages is available immediately and continues through the end of November 2008.

About 123Together.com
Headquartered in Burlington, Massachusetts, 123Together.com, a mindSHIFT company, is the leading provider of hosted enterprise-class messaging and collaboration solutions including hosted Microsoft Exchange Server, Windows SharePoint Services and Dynamics CRM. These hosted services are offered on shared and dedicated servers to small and mid-size businesses and can be resold as a completely white labeled service. Full mobile access is also offered for BlackBerry, Treo, iPhone, PocketPC, and Windows Mobile handheld devices. Exchange hosting customers receive free Outlook 2007, live 24×7 U.S.-based technical support, advanced spam and virus filtering and a 100% uptime guarantee on dedicated servers. A 30-day no-obligation trial is available for shared customers. Additional information can be found at www.123Together.com

Netmasterclass Choose Locklizard DRM To Secure Their Online Training Courses, Preventing Intellectual Property Theft

“In recent years, education and training have increasingly been delivered by electronic means,” said Dr Trevor Mathews, Chairman of LockLizard. “What started 20 years ago with television courses and VCR services has become much more sophisticated and much more packaged today. Distance learning courses are now so advanced that in some cases a live instructor is no longer needed, and examinations to follow training can also be taken electronically.”

NetMasterClass, a leading Cisco Certified Learning Partner, has protected its Cisco training courses using the LockLizard DRM service in order to make them readily accessible and deliverable over the Internet, whilst remaining secure against intellectual property theft. “We had previously had the unfortunate experience of seeing our training materials posted on public web sites, effectively giving away the work and expertise that we had used to create new and novel training techniques, and you cannot operate a training business in that kind of environment,” commented NetMasterClass.

Now we are able to deliver on-demand, 24×7 training to customers globally when and where they want it. And without having the underlying worries about what will happen to our proprietary materials.”

Whilst DRM has been seen as a negative addition in the music and video industries, DRM in the online training industry has been welcomed with open arms by many users. The reasoning behind this is that when you are paying upwards of $1000 for a course, you do not want to see others bidding $5 for it on auction sites.

Using Lizard Safeguard or Lizard Protector, publishers of electronic training materials can protect their intellectual property published in the PDF or HTML formats. Courses can be made available for a specific length of time or number of uses, and the number of prints can be limited or prevented altogether. Publishers can now price their courses according to the functionality enabled or limitations imposed, offering more attractive options to customers. Better still, updates can be delivered instantly over the web without fear of them getting into the wrong hands.

“Looking forwards,” said Dr Mathews, “We can see that there will be a rapid and significant move towards complete electronic delivery of training, course materials, lectures and notes, without a physical instructor ever needing to be present. The pressures that the current recession is bringing on the need to increase manpower effectiveness and reduce overall costs are going to accelerate the use of computer based training and education systems, always provided that the content can be adequately secured so that only those who have actually paid for the courses are those who benefit from them.

All of our publishers have noticed a significant increase in their bottom line and many have been amazed at the new revenue streams that have opened up, whilst at the same time benefitting from reduced costs in terms of overheads and distribution. A win-win situation if ever I saw one.”

About LockLizard
LockLizard is a DRM vendor that produces document security, pdf security, elearning security, ebook security, copy protection, and web content encryption products that use DRM technology to protect information from intellectual property theft. Our DRM software prevents copying, printing, screen grabbing, and sharing of information without the use of insecure passwords. http://www.locklizard.com

Tracesmart Continues To Expand Technical Team

November signals the beginning of a new career for some, as Tracesmart announce further expansion of their IT workforce. The technical department, based at their waterfront headquarters in Cardiff Bay, has recruited three new team members as a result of escalating workloads arising from increased demand for their people and name search services.

Tracesmart has continued to invest heavily in their product range following the acquisition of the 2008 Electoral Roll in April, and visitors to the site can now access close to 300 million records. These enhancements have been a resounding success as the website has seen a sharp increase in visitors – prompting the company to expand their technical team. The IT department has recruited two web developers and a software analyst; the primary role of the web developers will be to improve and expand the range of services on offer and assist in the maintenance of existing tracing services; the software analyst will work on the planning and production of specifications for all new products, developing bespoke product ideas for their ever expanding portfolio.

The team is headed by Technical Director, Paul Weathersby, who as well as producing and developing Tracesmart‘s flagship people search facility, has established a committed and extremely competent IT department. Weathersby comments, “We are growing as a company and experiencing an influx of new customers, so we need more IT staff to maintain our high level of service. We are always looking for new ways to enhance our customers experience through value added services that complement our existing product range and to facilitate this it is necessary to expand our technical team.”

Further to developing consumer services, the new recruits will also be working on Tracesmart‘s corporate service suite. The new employees are part of a recruitment drive that has already seen the company double in size in the recent months, with numerous departments continuing to expand their workforce to handle the ever increasing demand for their services.

The growth of the company has been endorsed by Tracesmart’s Managing Director, Michael Trezise, who comments; “The rapid rate of recruitment throughout the last year can be attributed to the continued growth of our key products and services, and heightened media interest. Tracesmart continues to be the leading suppliers of tracing services to consumers and businesses alike; from customers needing a simple address search or a missing person search, to large financial institutions requiring assistance with data cleansing or asset reunification projects; the range of services we provide are endless.”
