Managing a blog can be a challenging task. Creating quality, value-added content to keep readers interested and informed is one of the keys to building up a loyal reader base. However creating good quality content takes time, from researching topics, to styling photo shoots, typing up articles and then editing them, can take hours, if not days for some. So in the interests of helping out some bloggers-to-be or existing bloggers who are currently experiencing a low ROI, I thought I’d put together a brief post on 7 Ways To Increase Traffic To

This year’s new entrant to the lavish marquee stables in the Flemington Birdcage was the private equity owned marketing group Sensis with its stunning Sensis marquee on show. After Swisse decided not to renew it’s lease in 2016, Sensis stepped in and signed a two year deal on the premium strip of marquees overlooking the Rails. And boy did it not disappoint – Sensis CEO John Allan knows how to throw a party, that’s for sure! The interior was glazed in the trend black and white branding with pops of

As a a premium wine brand with high quality products and exacting professional standards, I was fortunate enough to receive a bottle of the stunning Wynns Coonawarra Limited Edition Michael Shiraz 2013 Vintage. I’ve long been a fan of the Wynns Coonawarra range, it’s a brand I know and trust to deliver exceptional quality wines, time after time. The Coonawarra region is synonymous for its rich, intense and flavoursome wines. It is located approximately 380km from Adelaide in South Australia and 480kms from Melbourne. The climate is cool and marginal

At the recent Online Retailer conference held in Sydney, I experienced what the new world of retail will be like in the future. A world driven by the needs and wants of the customer and a world driven by technology. Improving, customising and tracking the customer experience will be vital in the coming years. So how will this be done? For traditional retail, it

As Social Ambassador for Mercedes-Benz Melbourne, I thought it would be appropriate to undertake the experience of what it’s like to purchase a new Mercedes-Benz vehicle. See the video below of how it all went. With such a huge range of new and demonstrator vehicles, the Melbourne showroom is one of the biggest in the country so it’s hard not become a little overwhelmed when trying to select the right vehicle for your needs. I found the staff to be extremely helpful, genuine and knowledgeable when it came to the

At today’s opening of Uniqlo’s 11th Australian store On the Gold Coast, I was fortunate enough to spend 10 minutes with Uniqlo Australia’s CEO Soichi Miyasaka to talk about their business here. Mr Miyasaka has overseen all of the 11 Australian store  openings along with the openings of some of their other 1,700+ stores around the world. He has a thorough knowledge of the global retail industry and welcomed the opportunity for a discussion on his operations here down under. Here’s my 5 questions and his responses: 1. What do you

As someone who wears business shirts on a regular basis, I’m always looking to find the perfect fitting shirt. It must be a slim fit with a beautiful feeling fabric, be long enough in the arms, have the right type of collar for the occasion (e.g. spread, cutaway etc.), be comfortable and it must look and feel great on the body. That to me is the ultimate shirt. So when thinking about what makes the ultimate shirt, the first things that come to my mind are: quality materials, quality craftsmanship

When the new year comes around, it gets you thinking about what you want to achieve in the months ahead. One way to make sense of it all and get some structure in your life is to set a few goals, both personal and professional. I like to use the SMART criteria for goal setting. Under this method, when setting your goals they should be Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Timely. Using this method will also create good ongoing habits. I’ll elaborate on this a bit further: Specific: Clearly defining
