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.

Hi, just wanted to update our blog as it has been a while since my last posting! Deirdre and Grace have been busy writing posts about our company and what we have been doing, which has been crazy busy the last few months! All good though, keeps us on our toes!

On a recent trip to North America I was really impressed by the level of support and passion in Web2.0 but also in Mobile Internet usage, I think you guys use the Internet on your phones a lot more than us Europeans! Which is good for Zinadoo, of course, as USA is our largest and most active market today! When I think back 18 months to when we first launched Zinadoo Site Creation tools, we were engaging with the market and a lot of our time was spent educating users on the benefits of the mobile Internet – things like poor download speeds, weak search, multiple borwsers, high data charges and lack of content….the usual barriers out there! BUT we have seen a dramatic improvement in all of these areas, and now,  in our market and customer engagement we are not spending as much time educating but have now moved onto a different level. How can a business benefit from having a mobile Internet presence, and what can we do to help them promote and market themselves using this medium!

We are doing some interesting work with the Dotmobi Mobile Advisory group as well around mobile advertising and mobile standards compliance, and planning on a big iLoveMobileWeb campaign as well which is very exciting. So many great events coming up over the summer and Nubiq are going to be driving promotion of these events over the Mobile Internet! Should be fun!

Nubiq @ eFactor

Posted in Nubiq Events with tags , , , , on March 7, 2008 by nubiq

Waterford Institute of Technology hosted and organised an entrepreneurial day for their students last Wednesday dubbed “eFactor”. The concept for the day was to promote and encourage entrepreneurship among the students.

Nubiq got invited along to present and mingle with the students. They also used our services to enable students to complete their registration for the event over a customised eFactor mobile website; then send reminder and update texts to those who signed up.

I have to say it was an excellent event – very well run, a great buzz around the day and I overheard some great comments from the students! They had a great variety of activities on the day and there was a really interesting range of speakers; who gave some great, down to earth advice. I think the main message of the day was – ANYONE can be an entrepreneur! With the right dose of enthusiasm and passion for what you’re doing.

The event was covered by RTE 2 news in Ireland (with our own CEO Hélène Haughney featuring!), with lots of local and national press coverage also.

So, the event gets Nubiq’s “Aye Aye” in the vote to make this a yearly event… we might see an increase the number of entrepreneurs coming out of WIT!
