Dr Anna Crighton keen to save the Hydro Grand

I spent a very pleasant 20 minutes with Historic Places Board member Anna Crighton
who gave me hope when she told me that it is less costly to restore old buildings than it is to demolish and rebuild. The South Island manager for the trust Rob Hall is coming down to see me on the 6th May and we will be talking about how we can restore the Hydro Grand Hotel in Timaru.

Why Blogs are better than websites

When websites first appeared on our computers everyone believed that you had to have a website or your business was not in fashion. Some companies spent many thousands of dollars getting websites  professionally designed believing that business would grow to cover the cost of their pretty looking website.

It was not long before people realised that their website was only as good as there ability to promote it and more money was needed to up date it.  Smart business people like myself are changing from websites to blogs.

The good thing about blogs is you can update them yourself by writting articles adding photos or videos.

I first starting writting blogs in 2005 and by 2012 I had discovered the magic of youtube videos. It is much quicker to speak into a video camera than to sit and write out all the words. You must remember however that computer search engines can only pick up on words and not photos of video images. This is why it is important to add some text on to your blog when you upload a video.

We have built a business directory blog for all our clients which is giving them much more exposure. If you would like to place your business on one of our business directory blogs then contact us

Master Mind Group needed to promote Timaru

I first heard about a master mind group when I read the book Think and Grow Rich by Napolean Hill. A master mind group is where 2 or more people come together in harmony to reach a common goal. There is an old saying that 2 minds are better than one.

I have spent some 40 years trying to promote Timaru and the biggest mistake I have made along the way is trying to promote it on my own. All successful people become successful because of their ability to attract like minded people around them. In 2014 I have decided to stop trying to promote Timaru on my own but to look for a group of people who share my passion. I know the right people are out there but I have to carefully select the right people and invite them to join my master mind group.


If you have a passion for wanting to promote Timaru and you have a deep burning desire to do whatever it takes to do so then I would certainly like to meet with you.
Membership of a master mind group will help you achieve both your personal and community goals so come with me on a journey as we travel down the pathway of life together.

A meeting with Mayor Odey

Tell a Friend and Gigatown is the best that the Timaru District Council can come up with to promote the Timaru District

Timaru Mayor Damon Odey has been given the message that if he wants to attract more people to Timaru then he has to get his cheque book out and pay NZ Promoter and Motivator Ron E Bishop who has 20,000 website visitors a month. With over 800 youtube videos online already reaching over 82,000 views it has to be the best offer Mayor Damon Odey has had yet.
