Australasian Law Awards gets some entertainment and wow factor with Human Statue Bodyart judge living statues at Sydney Town Hall…

The ALB Australasian Law Awards is the premier awards event for the Australian and New Zealand legal industry. It brings together under one roof more than 500 in-house counsels, private practitioners and industry leaders to celebrate excellence in the legal profession, recognising individuals, teams and companies for their outstanding achievements.

For the uninitiated, ALB stands for ‘Australasian Legal Business’, which is a leading trade publication from Thomson Reuters.

Last Thursday the awards came with some extra excitement and wow factor.

The legal world collaborated with the creative arts arts and entertainment world, as Sydney based Human Statue Bodyart created and provided 4 human statue ‘Living Judges’.

The prestigious event was so large that it took up two rooms. The human statues were in the ‘Vestibule’ room, while dinner for hundreds of guests was served in the adjoining ‘Centennial Hall’.

As far as we can ascertain, it was the first time that the Law Awards (or any other legal entity in Australia), has used human statues, living statues, or even done anything with bodypaint. From the excellent feedback received, it will not be the last time that the awards or legal sector in Australia uses statues from Human Statue Bodyart.

It’s understood that Thomson Reuters was the prime organiser of the event.

31 May 2013

Bell Gully’s 18-partner Corporate team was named New Zealand Deal Team of the Year at the 2013 ALB Australasian Law Awards held at the Sydney Town Hall on Thursday night.

The awards offered recognition of Bell Gully’s work on many of the leading transactions in 2012. The firm advised clients on all four of the transactions named as finalists for New Zealand Deal of the Year, including Vodafone’s acquisition of TelstraClear, Haier’s acquisition of Fisher & Paykel Appliances, the sale of AMI Insurance to IAG and the Fonterra Shareholders Fund IPO. The Fonterra IPO, which involved a number of New Zealand firms, won the New Zealand Deal of the Year category as well as the Australasian award for Equity Market Deal of the Year.

"This result is a testament to strong client relationships, and we’d like to thank our clients for their ongoing support.”

Internet is getting bigger, competitive and more mainstream day by day. Businesses have realized that internet is the new frontier of sales. Every business big or small is joining the internet bandwagon. The first step for any company to establish it’s presence on internet is to get a website. While getting a website is an important step the things do not really end there. There are millions of websites on Internet clamoring for people’s attention. Most of the websites are anonymous and rarely get to see any visitors. Any traffic if any is accidental or through offline means. The most effective way to get traffic is from search engines like Google & Bing when people search for product, services or information related to your business. Getting traffic from search engines is not easy either. For that you need to be on first page of Google search results. Intrigued on how to be on the first page of Google search results? Read on to find the answer…

Content is king: I know this sounds clichéd, but is the truth. Over the years, I have seen many websites with solid content towering above other websites. There can be many reasons. Google and other search engines appreciate good, informative and unique content. Other reason is that unique and interesting content attracts other websites. Webmasters and bloggers often cite excerpts from websites with informative content and link back. This automatically increases inbound links which is so crucial for Google while calculating a website’s worth. Good SEOcontent writing gets traffic from back links as well as from good positions in search engines.

Relevant Keywords: A website should have keywords relevant to its content and business so that it can rank on search engines. Keywords placed at appropriate places and with correct density can ensure that search engines associate your website with the relevant keywords. If you are selling Halloween costumes then keywords related to Halloween should be placed in the title tags of all pages and in the content. Search engine robots will glean information from your website and deduced that your website is about Halloween costumes and rank you accordingly.

Directory Submission: An old and much abused trick but still relevant. Whatever, SEO consultants may declare; directory submission is still important step for brand new website. Directory submission ensures free one way links and induces Google bots to crawl your website more regularly. Do this at least when your website is new.

Article submission: Article submission is perhaps the most important activity. It costs nothing but few hours to write good article and submit it to top article directories. Your website get not only steady stream of traffic from articles but also high value backlinks from content rich sites.

It surprises me that people don’t take advantage of local free directories when marketing their website. In Perth, where we are web designers we have a list of directories that we use all the time that are free.

The quickest way to find local website directories is to enter a few key phrases into google and look through about 10 pages of results. Look for website directory sites and put them into a list. If they show up in the results then Google thinks they are important. You could also type in key phrase and then the word directory after them e.g. plumber directory, That will likely display more sites. This list below is for people in Australia but using the logic above you will easily find the best local directories.

All of the following website are the names followed by DOTCOM DOTAU. Due to the rules associated with article directories, I can’t list the websites so that you can click on them. Anyway here they are:-

1 yellowpagesonline – They provide a free online listing although that doesn’t include a link back to your site but there are plenty of people using it for search purposes and we have been listed in a free local area guide which can also help with phone calls. They will of course ring you soon afterwards trying to upsell you to a paid listing, but you can politely refuse.

2 Hotfrog – This is a business directory in many countries and is used by many people to do searches but is also a favoured website in Google results and provides a link and gets you indexed fairly quickly as well.

3 Comeonaussie – This site is not as well known, but I have found that in many instances a listing appears within Google with the site listing within an hour. In a few low competition areas you can even be on the front page of google with just a comeonaussie listing. They also place you in 2 additional sites for free when you register.

4 Truelocal – This site is affiliated with yahoo local search and is referenced often in Google maps as a citation. You can even add reviews to make the listing stand out more as well.

5 Aussieweb – This takes a while to get listed but seems to show up in the results within a month or so.

6 Localbusinessguide – This is also often a good directory that seems to be growing larger as time goes by. It can be a bit patchy in the search results at times but it is free, so you can’t complain.

7 Dlook – This seems to work well in the eastern states of Australia but the people searching for web design business in perth with this directory is low.

8 Business – Only recently has this company come to my attention, but there is a big company behind it so I expect that it will continue to grow in stature.

There are always more directories to be found out there, but that should help your website along initially.

If you or your business needs help with online directories, talk to a Perth Web Designer 9350 9392 or visit the Perth Web Wizards website to get lots of information about Web Design and what it can do for you and your business.

Cincinnati Bell Building

The Cincinnati Bell Telephone Company building on West Seventh Street in Cincinnati, Ohio was completed in 1931. The Art Deco-style building was designed by Harry Hake, a Cincinnati architect.
The 12-story builidng was designed with floor heights of at least 12 feet to house the new telephone equipment.

A decorative border above the second story is lined with niches in which cut-stone French telephones alternate with headphones. Communication is further symbolized by several reliefs showing the ancient runner, Alexander Bells’s first telephone effort, flag signaling from a ship, and conventional representations of a woman with a hare, swan, and hawk. In the ornate marble lobby are gold-and-silver metal reliefs of figures symbolizing man’s art, industry, and conquest of space.

The Cincinnati Bell Telephone Building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1995.

www.cincinnatibell.com/aboutus/history/
The City and Suburban Telegraph Company, later Cincinnati Bell Telephone, was officially incorporated on July 5, 1873, becoming the first company in the city to provide direct communication between the city`s homes and businesses. Manufacturer and philanthropist Andrew Erkenbrecher became the company`s first president in 1874. Rates were fixed at 0 a year for one line.

By mid-1877, when the telephone was first demonstrated in Cincinnati, the Association was maintaining about 50 private telegraph lines between offices and plants or residences. Customers were equipped with a simple telegraph instrument and a code book, and young men who pedaled foot treadles served as operators and powered the call bells.

In September 1878, the City and Suburban Association signed a contract with the Bell Telephone Company of Boston (the nation`s first telephone service and manufacturing company) for a license to furnish Bell telephone service in the Queen City area. The Association then became the exclusive agent for Bell telephones within a 25-mile radius of Cincinnati.

Located at the corner of Fourth and Walnut streets downtown, Bell Telephonic Exchange was the first telephonic exchange in Ohio and the 10th in the nation. In 1879, the first telephone directory was published and the first line extended across the Suspension Bridge to Covington, Ky. Women, or "hello girls" who had to memorize all callers` names, took the place of men as operators, and 25 employees served more than 1,000 customers. A total of 145,392 calls had been recorded for the year.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cincinnati_Bell
Cincinnati Bell is one of only two American companies that continue to actively promote itself under the "Bell" name. As of August 2006, Cincinnati Bell has ceased all public usage of the last Bell logo, designed in 1969 by Saul Bass, simply opting to use a stylized, shadowed version of its corporate name on its website. The company had already removed the Bell logo from its telephone directories’ covers for some time.

The newsmagazine 60 Minutes reported in 1989 that Cincinnati Bell cooperated with local police to wiretap local residents in search of alleged communist or criminal activity from 1972 to 1984.

It is not easy to determine whether to go with free or paid web hosting companies. It boils down to what your needs are and how much you expect them to grow within a certain period of time. There are certain obvious benefits that come with a free web hosting directory and also a few setbacks. Let’s get into it and look at the merits of free FTP.

Most noteworthy about the benefits of free hosting is that it does not lay any financial burden on the client. The free hosting is a great choice for personal websites and small business websites that are looking to make a name on the Internet.The providers provide fertile ground for Internet startups that have yet to start selling to online clients.

Another benefit is that free asp.net web hosting is often available and it is a great tool for upcoming programmers to sharpen their skills. Common programming languages including: ASP, CGI/Perl, PHP, JSP, and ColdFusion are often supported by providers with varying levels of support. A good website that provides a free hosting directory such as Freehosting1.net allows access to these languages and helps you to take advantage of the features of companies; one often needs to pay a small fee to utilize premium features.

Jumping into paid directories, you can easily remove any type of advertising from the website as long as you don’t want it. You can also benefit from having your own domain name instead of having your website reside in a sub-domain. Needless to say that search engine visibility is enhanced by having a distinct domain to represent your company.

The providers have round-the-clock support. Highly customizable control panels are usually provided by paid web hosts. With the control panels you can view important web statistics, protect certain parts of the website with passwords, and create web-based email accounts. It goes without saying that you can get free ftp with unlimited bandwidth from a majority of web hosts.

One minor setback about using a web host from a free web hosting directory is that you are not allowed to specify the advertisements that will appear on your website. Also, freely hosted websites are included in sub-domains which makes them rank poorly in search engines. Support is not available round the clock with free web hosts and this makes it difficult to deal with problems as they occur.

It comes with a major disadvantage. There is a varying amount of financial investment needed in order to secure the services of hosting company. Depending on the functionality that you want to incorporate into your website, you have to pay additional sums of money to upgrade the package. Many fully-featured packages can set you back a considerable amount of money. So for these reasons and more, free web hosting directories are more often than not a better method of having a place to put your website rather than paid directories.

A social network service uses software to build online social networks for communities of people who share interests and activities or who are interested in exploring the interests and activities of others.

Most services are primarily web based and provide a collection of various ways for users to interact, such as chat, messaging, email, video, voice chat, file sharing, blogging, discussion groups, and so on. Social networking has revolutionized the way we communicate and share information with one another in today’s society. Various social networking websites are being used by millions of people everyday on a regular basis and it now seems that social networking is a part of everyday life.

The main types of social networking services are those which contain directories of some categories (such as former classmates), means to connect with friends (usually with self-description pages), and recommender systems linked to trust. Popular methods now combine many of these, with MySpace and Facebook being the most widely used in North America, Bebo, MySpace, Skyrock Blog , Facebook and Hi5 in parts of Europe, Orkut and Hi5 in South America and Central America, Friendster, Orkut and CyWorld in Asia and the Pacific Islands.

There are, quite literally, millions and millions of web sites on the web today, and most small businesses find it a constant struggle to be found among all the competition. One method that many of these webmasters have found to raise their exposure within a cost effective method, is through web directory submissions. If you have a small business website and have been experiencing difficulty building traffic to it, then web directory submission may help you get things moving within the right direction by explaining what web directories are, why they are good for your business, and how best to use them.

What Is A business website directory?

A web directory is a website devoted entirely to collecting infos about other sites and categorise then based on their specific niche. A business directory limits itself to business web sites just. These directories, and there are thousands of them, assign each website a small plot of virtual real estate on their website that will contain a brief description, a link to the website, and possibly a screen shot image of the website’s homepage. All of this infos is then organized into a database that can be searched by category, name, or sometimes even geographic location or region. So far they don’t sound much different from a search engine, do they?

The main difference among a business website directory and a search engine is that while a search engine simply returns a bunch of robot collected links, a web directory returns a list of human edited entries with website descriptions. This means the sites you find through a directory have been reviewed, sorted and categorized by an impartial editor before actually being placed on the website. This keeps the junk and spam sites to a minimum, and is why they are used by a lot of people.

Business web directories give a small business web website the ability to compete on a level playing field. While it is frequently really difficult to be found within the crowd of search engine results, the categories and geographic divisions of a directory make it easier for your potential customers to find you. In a web directory, all of the sites have an equal chance to stand out. Usually the easiest method to accomplish this is to spend the modest fee for a premium, or featured, listing. This means your listing will be at the top of the list and frequently have a larger font size. By purchasing a featured listing even a small website can stand out within the crowd.

How Do I Get My website Listed?

Getting your website listed within a business directory is really not complicated at all. Every business website directory will have a submission form somewhere on the website, almost linked to from a relatively prominent location on the homepage. To submit your website for approval, simply fill out the form with your website url, your E-mail address, and a short description of your website or business, then click the “submit” button. Your web directory submission then goes into the queue where an editor will eventually inspect your website and approve or reject the submission. Unfortunately though, you are just getting started.

To really use the web directory submission strategy to your advantage, you need to submit your website to many, many directories. While the submission process itself is fairly simple and straightforward, it can become tedious and time consuming when you start talking about adding to hundreds, or even thousands, of directories. This is where some of you decide to use one of the many software programs out there to submit their website automatically, but beware, if done improperly, this method can cause more harm than good. Frankly, unless you have someone to show you how best to use the software, you should probably avoid it, and just submit your website manually. This will take longer, but the rate at which you build the links will look much more natural, and not cause you any kind of problems.

Now that you understand what these directories are, how they function, and why you should use them, do an web search for, “Business Web Directory” and get started putting your web website within front of your future customers.
