INTERNeX New J1 Program for Canadians

Posted on

INTERNeXFor many years INTERNeX has helped students to gain work experience abroad. The cultural exchange was always the most important factor for them as well as the personal growth. Programs such as the practicum program, hospitality program and ranch stay program are designed to bring people together and let them learn to walk in someone else’s shoes. Many students from Germany, The Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, Switzerland, Norway and other European countries went on an adventure in Canada or New Zealand. Always knowing that INTERNeX is there to help them if needed.

INTERNeX international exchange Ltd. is Canada’s leading work experience provider, hosting more than 1000 participants from over 30 countries per year. Since February 2015 INTERNeX is providing services to Canadians who want to go to the US to do an internship there. Of course certain requirements apply in order to get the J1 visa, but all necessary information can be found at http://internexusa.com

A practicum is a fantastic way to gain work experiences and to use the theoretical knowledge in the “real world”.

To learn more about the INTERNeX J1 Program for Canadians we encourage you to read the following posts:

Introducing “The Off Switch V2.15” by teccrab

Posted on Updated on

Logo "The Off Switch V2.15"We live in an age where technology is an important part of our lives. But by staying connected via Computers, Cell Phones, Smart Phones and other Gizmos we often disconnect ourselves from our real lives and sometimes turn into Technology Zombies.

As an Online Marketing Agency we use technology ourselves and understand how important it is to step away once in a while. This is why we would like to invite you to join us for an opportunity to turn off your devices and to talk about better ways to stay connected without disconnecting ourselves from family and friends.

The first thing we will do is to turn off our cell phones, laptops, tablets and other devices. We will even put them away and sit down with pen and paper while talking about our experiences.

To secure that everyone gets the most out of the event we would like to keep groups small. Included in the small $10.00 fee are snacks and drinks available to you during the event.

The first event is planed for Wednesday the 28th January 2015. Upcoming events can be found on our Event List.

We are looking forward to welcomeing you to “The Off Switch V2.15”

Your teccrab team

Highlights of the year – teccrab inc. 2014 review

Posted on Updated on

We are enjoying the last days of the year and would like to take a moment to say thank you for an amazing year. This year we had the pleasure to work with a lot of brilliant people on many fantastic projects. We would like to mention some of our highlights in our last post of 2014.

Our Sales Representative Alex joined our team in February 2014 with some creative ideas to increase the sales for our video production services. In March we produced a little advertisement with the goal to create a video that would demonstrate how powerful video advertisement can be, even if the video is made on a small budget. The video we produced, staring Alexander, is the following:

In May 2014 we had the pleasure to start working with Patricia, a very talented and dedicated Web Application Developer. One project she helped us with was the websites for an insurance agency in Germany. She also became the Project Manager for an in-house software we are developing.

Later this year we had the opportunity to update the INTERNeX website and to create a prototype for an iPhone application for them.

We also produced a 15 minute movie for INTERNeX which will be used as orientation for arriving candidates. Since this video is for their use only, we also produced a making of video:

During 2014 we have offered many seminars, but between October and December we had two seminars we want to mention here. One was about Online SCAM and the other about Facebook advertisement. Every Wednesday from October to mid December we switched between those two seminars and would like to thank everyone who joined us. If you are interested to see what seminars we organized in 2014 feel free to check out our profile on Eventbrite:

http://teccrab.eventbrite.ca/

We used the quite time at the end of 2014 to work on our own website and translated a major part of it also into German. You can find our website at http://www.teccrab.com or http://de.teccrab.com if you prefer to read our details in German.

After this little short review let us talk a bit about 2015.

Our main goal for 2015 is to open an agency in Germany. With the knowledge and our connection we are confident that we can be a great asset for German companies who want to check out the North American Market and for Canadian companies who would like to explore opportunities in Europe. We produced a little video ad to introduce teccrab and our services to the German Market. The video is the following:

To get things started in Germany we have also planed a seminar in March 2015 were we talk about benefits and risks using social media as marketing platform. If you are interested to learn more about this seminar check out http://seminar.teccrab.com for more information.

Seminars are for us an important factor not only to educate but also to build trust. We therefore plan to offer in 2015 seminars with various topics. Since we had great success with the Online Scam seminars we are planing to have them as a regular event.

We also want to introduce “The Off Switch V2.15 by teccrab” an event we would like to offer once a month. More details on that soon.

As mentioned we had an exciting year and look forward to see what 2015 will have to offer.

We wish you all a good start into the new year.

Online Security Awareness Seminar (OSAS) – May 2014

Posted on Updated on

We would like to invite you to join our Online Security Awareness Seminar (OSAS) which we will offer in the last two weeks of May. Because of recent security problems such as Heartbleed and the issue with the InternetExplorer we dedicated some time to create this seminar for you. We decided to offer our seminar to everyone who is interested in this subject and to make it also as affordable as possible. During the seminar we will go over the following topics:

OSAS-2014System at risk
When you are working with a computer and the internet you are probably aware about the risks. Let us talk about those systems.

What kind of risks
Heartbleed demonstrated that even big players can not give you any guarantee to be protected. You also need to protect yourself. Let us give you a little overview and talk about the “What kind of risks” each system is facing.

Security vs Convenience
There has to be a balance between security and usability. How much is to much and what is the minimum? Let us talk about it.

Options to secure your system
Let us give you some example how you can protect your systems. We will talk about technics as well as software that can help you accomplishing this goal.

Password creation
We all use passwords to protect our computer, website, social media network, Bank Account and Email. Let us show you how to generate a more secure password which you can also easy remember, hopefully without leaving a clou to others.

At the end of our presentation we will have of course some time to chat with you and to answer questions you may have.

We are looking forward to welcome you in our Consultation Location in the International Mall at 88 West Pender Street where we will offer the seminar every business day from the 20th until the 30th May 2014 from 6:00pm until 7:00pm.

Highlights of the year – teccrab inc. 2013 review

Posted on

teccrab-inc-wp-bannerIt is the time of the year where we take a moment to review the events of the ending year and plan for the upcoming one. I do of course the same for teccrab inc. and would like to use this post to give you a little inside or behind the sense if you want.

In 2013 we manly tried to concentrate on building a solid foundation, to plan ahead and to continue growing. We partnered with incredible talented individuals as well as fantastic organizations around the world. Those partnerships helped us not just to increase the quality of our core business but also providing high class services in areas related to ours. From Hosting to Web Design, from Online Marketing to Public Relations Services to Video Productions and even Event Management, we are able to provide services that can help a business to promote themselves.

In June we opened our consultation location and moved into a part of the office space from INTERNeX. This new location allows us to offer seminars and can function as a studio for video production. It is easy accessible for our clients and has enough room to secure a healthy growth of teccrab inc.

We were very excited to support last year some fantastic app developers who created interesting applications and hope to continue working with them in the future. One of those applications is MyPoi, we posted about this interesting app a couple weeks ago.

Please Read: Introducing MyPoi (My Point of interest)

We also helped new clients such as Craig to establish and to grow an online community and to promote his Blog as well as his related hairstyle business. If you would like to learn more about him please read the following article:

Introducing tangledthoughts.ca

But also clients we started working with in 2012, where teccrab inc. was founded, continued trusting our services and can report a healthy growth. We are of course talking about MarioFit.ca and would like to mention our related Blogpost:

MarioFit – a year later

One of our closest partners is of course INTERNeX International Exchange Ltd. In 2013 we produced for and with them many interesting videos for their clients. This project was driven by the PR interns of INTERNeX and our role was mainly production and post production support. The PR interns picked the locations for the INTERNeX Explorer and wrote their own scripts. We filmed them in different locations and provided the footage back to the interns who did the editing in most cases. The video was uploaded to YouTube almost every week. Unfortunately, because of changes in the PR team as well as technical problems, we couldn’t continue producing those videos, but plan to do it again in 2014.
If you like to see some of those videos please check one of the episodes here:

teccrab presents INTERNeX HiGHLIGHTS of the week Ep. 8/2013

But the HiGHLIGHTS of the week and the INTERNeX Explorer are of course not the only projects planed for 2014. We have plans to offer seminars for small businesses as well as individuals who would like to learn more about the benefits and also risks of social media platforms.

A social media management package designed for small businesses and startups is another project on our list. Our plan is to include in this deal a lot of services to get a small business started as well as support to manage and build an audience. We will also make changes in out team, would like to get new people on board to increase our productivity and to secure our known quality. A career page will be available on our website shortly.

We would like to thank everyone who trusted us with their business, everyone who partnered with us and everyone who is considering using our service in the future. We hope you all can look back on 2013 and can at least say to yourself that the experience you gained will help you in the future. For 2014 we wish everyone a fantastic start and look forward to continue or start working with you.

Cheers

MarioFit – a year later

Posted on

Event-Banner(Supporter)We started working with Mario Schiopu from MarioFit.ca in September 2012. Mario is a Karate Champion, Krav Maga Instructor, registered Holistic Nutritionist & Sport Nutrition Advisor, a Certified Fitness Consultant and experienced Athletic Performance Coach, Mario is one of the most passionate researchers on Fitness, Nutrition and Healthy Aging. When he turned 50 his goal was to raise awareness for a healthy lifestyle by participating in the 2012 BC Karate Championship Tournament. He attached this goal to a fund-raising event called MarioFitFightingForKids.com to gain the motivation he needed to compete. Mario was facing in the tournament much younger champions and won in the end the silver medal. MarioFitFightingForKids.com had 7 official Sponsors and 32 official Supporters. We raised for the Children’s Hunger Fund and the BC Children Hospital more than $4,000. In summer 2013 Mario received the Champions for Change Award for this event.

Beside this fantastic achievement Mario also realized during the time we worked with him the power of social media and with our help he started updating his Blog more frequently. He is posting about various health, fitness and self defence related topics on his Blog MarioFit.ca in English and Romania.

He also became involved in the Vancouver Martial Arts Academy, started training Josh to become the next Karate Champion, gave self defence classes in various community centres, schools and even the UBC.

For 2014 MarioFit.ca has already big plans and we from teccrab inc. are very happy and excited to be part of it. If you want to learn more about MarioFit.ca please follow one of the links below:

Introducing tangledthoughts.ca

Posted on Updated on

craig with angelaOne of our fantastic clients is Craig, who is updating his Blog tangledthoughts.ca frequently. Craig is a first class hairstylists located in Vancouver Downtown and his Blog is not just about Hair.

Since April 2013 we are working together with Craig and our goal was to establish a Blog that would be informative and fun. Thanks to Craig’s excellent writing skills and his fantastic sense of humour his Blog became step by step more successful and popular.

The first steps for a new Blog as well as new Facebook Page are always a bit difficult. You start with a blank page, nobody is following your updates and we often get the question if it is worse putting so much time and effort into it. We always answer that question by referring to other clients who had the same problems when they started using social media.

In our experience the first 100 fans are always the hardest.

Craig is at the moment at 87 fans, only 13 more to go and he has his 100 fans on Facebook. Important to mention is that we managed to reach this goal with a very low budget in just a few month. Craig is using one of our smallest packages, which includes frequent meetings and tips to improve his overall online visibility.

Check out his his Facebook Page at http://www.facebook.com/tangledthoughts.ca and feel free to become a fan. Please also visit his Blog at tangledthoughts.ca and leave a comment if you like.

Craig is in our opinion an excellent example for a small business owner who is successfully using Social Media to improve his online visibility without spending a lot of money and we are very happy to support Craig and have him as a client.

If you like to learn more about Online Marketing and Social Media Management join us in our seminar which we offer at the moment for a very low price. Or fill out our Online Information Request Form to get in touch with us. We would be happy to have you as our next success story.

The teccrab 2013 Online Marketing and Social Media Management Seminar

Posted on Updated on

2013-OnlineMarketing_SocialMediaManagementPromoting your product and services can be challenging. For many small businesses and startups the internet seems to be a good and cheap way to do advertising. But before investing a lot of money in the wrong platform, you should know a bit more about the many different ways to promote your business, product and services online. Often a combination of more than one platform leads to a higher success than just putting everything into one online advertisement campaign.

Our weekend seminar is designed to help you to find out which platform is the best for your business. We will talk about Online Marketing in general and also talk about Social Media integration into your Online Marketing campaign. To secure that you will get the most out of our seminar we keep our groups small, only a max of 10 participant per weekend. We also decided to offer this amazing two day seminar for a very discounted price. Only $129.00 for two full days.

Included are the following topics:

Online Marketing
We will talk about Online Marketing in general. Mention the most popular platforms to promote your business, products, services or events online. Plus talk about possible combinations.

SEO and SEMSEO and SEM
You may have heard a lot about those two. SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization and SEM for Search Engine Marketing, but what does it mean? We hope we can help to get a bit more light on this subject for you in our seminar.

Blogging (Public Relations Services)Blogging
In our experience Blogging is especially for small businesses a great way to inform customers about your business, products, services, special offers and events. A Blog can be a very powerful tool to help you reaching your goals, even with a very low budget.

SEO and SEMKeywords / Tags
To help your customers finding your Blog or website you will need to add keywords so that your site pops up when someone uses a search engine. Let us guide you a little by explaining how important Keywords and Tags are.

Social Media – Overview
Our second day is all about Social Media. We will start with a little introduction and we will also combine things we learned the day before into this topic.

facebookFacebook
What is the difference between a Facebook Profile, a Facebook Page and a Facebook Group? How can you integrate them into your Online Marketing Strategy and more important should you?

twitterTwitter
Telling a storey with only 140 characters is not easy. Is Twitter really the right platform for you? Or is it just a waste of time? Let us help you to find out.

linkedinLinkedIn
We like to call it the professional Social Media Platform. You can find here professionals from around the world, but can also use it to introduce not just yourself, but your business, products and services.

google_plusGoogle Plus
The Social Media Platform from Google. Some love it, some like it, some think it is not worse spending time and money on it. We would like to introduce it to you and maybe you will be surprised that you can find your audience here.

youtubeYouTube
Videos are a great way to introduce your products and services to your audience. Let us show you how you can use YouTube as a fantastic advertising platform.

We will close each day with an hour for your questions. We believe, because our groups are small, you can be sure that your questions will be answered. We are offering this seminar for this amazing price only until the end of December 2013. If you are interested check out our Event Calendar to find which weekend is best for you. The location of the seminar will be our consultation location in Downtown Vancouver.

We are looking forward to see you soon.
