Yesterday I blogged about our introduction as a courier company into the world of web 2.0 you can read that here – Courier 2.0
After BT Tradespace, I found the nice people at the Sales and Marketing Forum and I chatted to other people about their web experiences, and found many people who would share advice and what worked for them. I took part in a business card exchange and of the people that sent me cards was a graphic designer called Mark Ballantyne, he now has his own business forum – UK Business Labs .It’s one of my favourite places.
I was beginning to see many connections with people and many chances of working collaboratively. I decided at this point I was going to break out and actually have our own business blog instead of using ones in other forums!
We chatted to Mark Graves and he put us together the blog on The Courier Shop and a few months later, the blog on Arrow Light Haulage. In August this year I changed from a plain Kubrick theme to the dark and broodier road theme, I did try the blue skies open road theme, but that didn’t look too great!
The final delivery…
Well, when I started out on the road of web 2.0 I thought it had an end. But It doesn’t. I have added Zemanta reblogging tools, retaggr and loads of other widgets and grown from one experimental blog to 8 full on blogs…
Our latest project is a blogsite called Freight Emergency, 2 years ago I had never heard of a blog!
I wonder what the future holds? will it be delivery videos on you tube? podcasts of me twittering about delivery facts and figures? Viral games and Facebook widgets? who knows! but I am sure I will get round to it in the end!
