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.

The new sales and marketing intern Zehra

Posted on

Zehra

My name is Zehra and for the next two months I will be working in the sales and marketing department of teccrab inc.

I thought that you certainly want to know who you’ll have to deal with for the next few weeks:

Well, as you’ve probably noticed, I have no typical Canadian name.

Maybe that’s because I was born about 8200 km away from Vancouver.

No, it’s not Italy, not France. Right!! I’m from Germany!

My family is originally from Bosnia, but I always lived in Huefingen, a small town in the southwest of Germany.

I am 20 years old and I’m studying economics. In one year I will hopefully have my bachelor’s degree.

At the moment, I want to get more experience in sales and marketing and also to brush up my English.

That is why INTERNeX, which is a partner of my university, suggested to do an internship at teccrab.

And where can I learn more than in a company, which is not only doing a great job but also working with a lot of passion?!

And now I’m sitting here in the office of teccrab, looking out the windows, enjoying the flare of Vancouver and hoping that the next two months at least be half as amazing as the last few days here in Canada.

I would be delighted if you would give some survival tips for Vancouver, ask me some questions or what I would like the most if you tell me some stories about yourself!

I’m looking forward to get many new impressions, to gain more experience and to meet a lot of cool people like you are!

Cheers,

Zehra

Clara also had a chance to interview one of the many fantastic Bartenders of the Blarney Stone. Come and check it out:

teccrab presents INTERNeX HiGHLiGHTS of the week Ep. 7/2013

Posted on Updated on

VideoProductionWe started in May a new video project with INTERNeX. A show for their candidates to inform about upcoming trips, events and pub nights. We as well included in each video a short INTERNeX EXPLOReR where we introduce different locations in Vancouver.

Usually each episode is about 3 minutes long, but for episode 7 we went to see another of our clients, Craig from tangledthoughts.ca, where one of INTERNeX PR interns received a special treat. Craig is one of the best Hairdresser in Vancouver and you can usually find him in THE salon beauty bar on 505 Thurlow Street.

We needed for the production and postproduction of that video about 3 days. Little fun fact, while filming in THE salon beauty bar, another film crew closed the Thurlow Street in front of the salon to shoot a scene for the upcoming Godzilla movie. I admit it was very cool to produce a video right next to the big boys.

We also would like to mention that we had to change the format in episode 7 a little. The reason is because Clara, one of INTERNeX PR interns, is usually editing the videos. But for episode 7 we had to do the entire postproduction ourselves. Unfortunately we forgot to copy the intro and music Clara used for her videos and had therefore to improvise.

We hope you will enjoy the video and look forward to your comments.

Happy Canada Day – 2013

Posted on

We wish all our employees, interns, clients, partners and friends a very Happy Canada Day. Many of you know that July 2013 is for teccrab inc. a very special month. Not only have we partnered with a hosing company located in the Netherlands, we also work on a new concept for our website and will soon move into a fantastic office located in Downtown Vancouver. A strong relationship with a Vancouver based web developer will allow us to concentrate more on our online marketing packages without loosing the ability to offer high class websites to our clients. More about this will be revealed this month.

To celebrate Canada Day we have uploaded a new timeline picture, which you can find below. We hope everyone has a great day. Happy Canada Day 🙂
