Today we launch

NT entries on Facebook for The RITE Series

A sample of NT entries on Facebook

Today is the day we open for taking nominations of businesses or organisations in the Northern Territory using social networking or social media successfully as marketing tools.

The information is being collected as part of an October Business Month project known as The RITE Series: Regional Insights Top End being facilitated by Get Online NT presenter and marketing professional, Steve Davis.

Over the next two weeks, we hope to gather leads and then follow up with interviews so that by October NT businesses can be presented with a ‘best practices’ guide to using these online social tools in their businesses.

Please nominate an NT business via The RITE Series nomination form [nominations have closed], if they are using any of the following tools successfully:

  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • LinkedIn
  • YouTube or other video sharing sites
  • Flickr/Picasa or other photo sharing sites
  • WordPress/Blogger or other blogging platforms
  • VOIP
  • Cloud Computing/Cloud Storage
  • Apps for mobiles or tablets

Information about nominated businesses will be shared on The RITE Series website during August and September with invitations open for further insights and commentary by NT residents and business/organisation representatives.

On Wednesday, October 19, 2011, Steve Davis will present a keynote address in Darwin as part of October Business Month, to walk businesses through the findings and release the ‘best practices’ guide, which will be freely available for download. We are planning to stream the presentation into other major centres around the Northern Territory too.

“I am keen to find, showcase and explain how local businesses and organisations are using these tools innovatively and/or successfully in the Top End, either as standalone marketing elements or in tandem with other communication/advertising channels,” says Steve Davis.

“The more sharing and explanation we can nurture, the more that local businesses and organisations will be able to be where the people are and communicate in a more relevant (and, hopefully, efficient) way.”

This major round of nominations closes July 29, 2011, but the conversation and forum will continue through the year at
