Auckland Focus Business Promoters Expanding Online

Auckland Focus Business Promoters Expanding Online

An exciting new email service is appearing in the inboxes of business around the country. Over the past year, the Auckland Focus, a free email newsletter, has been successfully notifying subscribing business owners with up-to-date information on upcoming tradeshows, latest seminars, festivals and networking events. The vibrant success of the Auckland Focus has inspired plans to expand the service nationwide.

Twelve months ago, Permission Marketing, a company that specialises in assisting businesses keeping in contact with their clients, began offering the Auckland Focus email newsletter to the business community of Auckland. Ryan Saville (director) says many business owners have been extremely pleased to receive this service because it saves them time, allowing them to focus on growing their own businesses. Plans are underway to expand the service to other major cities beginning with Wellington and Christchurch.

Permission Marketing staff search for relevant events on the internet and in local business newsletters. They also encourage businesses and groups to provide them with upcoming events to include in the newsletter. Like all networking groups, Auckland Focus operates with similar goals in mind; to build relationships, generate referrals and leads and exchange ideas.

Electronic communication has shaped business practices in important ways. Its potential to significantly alter the ways business owners network and communicate is still being discovered. The Auckland Focus is on the forefront of exploring the potential of electronic forms of connecting companies within the Auckland community and is set to focus on other cities in the coming months.
