Hi Everyone!

Welcome to Nubiq’s August Blog! this month Nubiq has been busy launching its newest service under our Zinadoo product brand. Nubiq is proud to introduce the newest member of the Zinadoo family, – Zinadaoo Directory.

Zinadoo Directory is an exceptional service that leverages the increase in demand for location based services. This service enables partners to publish their existing online business listings and content to a fully personalised standards compliant ‘mobile Web directory’ under our Partner Program.

Zinadoo Directory is a fully hosted service which guarantees that web content is automatically rendered for viewing across multiple handsets and browsers, maximising customer reach globally and increasing an organisation’s ROI. Nubiq’s technology allows a single data entry point, so company information is automatically generated and updated across both the web AND mobile Web, minimizing maintenance, maximising effective brand exposure!

Organisations such as the ‘Mobile Food Circle” have made the mobile Web relevant to their business strategy and are engaging audiences in a new way, generating additional revenue streams. The Mobile Food Circle has joined Nubiq’s Partner Program and has launched the FIRST and only restaurant directory in Ireland available on the mobile handset. Diners can quickly and easily search for cafes, restaurants and bars in their locality, and using the location mapping and click to call features can make a reservation directly!

The mobile phone is always on, and is always available, more and more organisations are realising the financial potential of utilising this media channel, it provides an additional revenue generating stream whilst also providing valued content for users.

As part of our trip last week to Silicon Valley, the Paddy’s Valley crew paid a visit to Yahoo! Brickhouse, hosted by Salim Ismail who so kindly invited us over to meet some very cool and interesting people. Brickhouse is Yahoo’s incubation facility for innovation and new product ideas. We heard from Chad Dickerson who talked about his aspirations for Hack Day  and also met with Havi Hoffman, who is managing editor of Next Yahoo! blog. So even though this is a massive corporation they made time to hear us pitching our ideas to them and give us some tips on how to deal with Yahoo!’s of this world! Overall a great event and very cool to hear what new innovations are coming out of Yahoo! in the coming weeks. Oh and forgot to mention, while we were there Jerry Yang popped over to say hello and pose for a photo with the PV crew!

Nubiq pitch to the Experts

Posted in 1, Nubiq Events with tags , , , , , on November 20, 2007 by nubiq

Last week Nubiq were one of the 7 companies pitching to the Wireless Advisory Board that came over from USA and Canada to meet a number of Irish companies and offer advice and wisdom.

The sessions were arranged by Enterprise Ireland and are set up to help Irish companies get into the US market abd to learn from a group of people who have been there already.

We used it as an opportunity to ask for feedback, from some really experienced guys ( no ladies there this year!!), on our value proposition and marketing plan. We had the ears of people like Trevor Healy, Michael Duffy, Jason Devitt, Jon Bukosky , Kieran Hannon and many more great names from the world of consultancy and serial entrepreneurs.

We had a couple of sessions beforehand with David Taber who worked with us to refine our presentation and message and brush up on presentation skills – an excellent workshop.

We were in good company with companies such as Changingworlds, S3, Sentaca, Yougetitback, Cubic Telecom and Openet.

A great experience and not just for early stage companies, as you can see from the list above, a mixture of companies all at different stages in their development.

So a big thanks to all invovled in organising the event and to the members of the Board. It was a great experience and one I hope we will be invited to do again.
