The Badlees

A Tribute to the Badlees

Tonight at Mauch Chunk Opera House in Jim Thorpe, PA will be the final performance by The Badlees of 2014 and, quite possibly, ever. After nearly a quarter century of musical excellence, dating back to 1990, the members of this Pennsylvania band are going their separate ways. Modern Rock Review has updated its career-spanning Profile of The Badlees, which offers 14 pages of stories, perspectives, images, videos, and related articles that talk about every important event from the group’s origins through the present day.

The Badlees have been a 33 Dimensions client since 2010, and we have implemented three distinctive design layouts at Badlees.com over that time period. Knowing each of the band members personally, I can also say that these are a great group of guys who have ridden the rock and roll roller-coaster from humble beginnings to national success and international tours, all while remaining personable and down-to-earth with their extremely loyal fan base. I wish them the best in their future endeavors.

Broderick Crawford Day

33 Dimensions Newsletter for October 4, 2013

Broaderick Crawford as Dan Matthews“10-4”

A friend of mine always calls this day “Broderick Crawford Day” in honor of the actor who portrayed the fedora-wearing character on the 1950s television show Highway Patrol. One of the signature shots of that series was Crawford’s character barking rapid-fire dialogue into the police radio, using brevity codes such as “21-50”, “11-27”, and of course “10-4” (meaning “acknowledged”). While these codes must have at first seemed like jibberish, millions of children from the fifties soon learned the lingo.

With the fast moving world of technology today, much of the lingo and newer terms may be confusing at first. This causes many to shy away from pursuing new technological pursuits and using the tools available. 33 Dimensions can help make sense of these technologies and guide you towards the appropriate channels to make your online presence a success. If you check out our updated Services page, you will see that there is no job too complex or too small for us to handle for you.

Spring Is Coming

Spring LandscapeSpring Is Coming!

Anyone who is a fan of Game of Thrones (which, by the way, returns this Sunday night) would know the term “winter is coming” has been oft-repeated over the past two seasons. Well, we’re in a better place here as the weather is about to break, the days are getting longer, and soon we will be awash in green. It is a great time to be optimistic and here at 33 Dimensions we have plenty of things cooking which are very exciting.

First, we are now developing websites using responsive design, which adapts and optimizes for any screen size – desktop, tablet, or mobile. We’ve also partnered with some great companies to provide more convenient transactions for our customers, including Fresh Books for invoicing and expense reports and Stripe for accepting all major credit cards.

Best of all, we have some great new websites launching in the coming weeks (see client info below) as well as some interesting new initiatives in the works. Stay tuned for more great stuff!

Thanksgiving 2012

 

33 Dimensions Newsletter
November 21, 2012

Happy Thanksgiving 2012Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

I have much to be thankful for this year, beginning with the privilege to run a creative and rewarding business like 33 Dimensions. It has been a year of great growth for my company and I’ve gotten to work with and know so many great clients and associates, which has been fantastic.

Of course, on the other side of Thanksgiving comes the retail blitz which kicks off the holiday shopping season. “Black Friday” has become an institution, almost to the point of becoming a national holiday in of itself. Over the past decade or so, “Cyber Monday” has become a huge day for online sales. But the latest and greatest of these specialized shopping days is Small Business Saturday.

Started in 2010, this November 24th will be the 3rd Small Business Saturday and I encourage you all to participate. As a small business owner who provides the bulk of my services to other small businesses, promoting and supporting such initiatives is a year-round endeavor because these businesses face multiple challenges (as I wrote about in this blog on Sunday). Please support some of our affiliated initiatives listed below as well as small business in general.

Small Business Initiatives

Strella Social MediaSmall business owners wear many hats, which often leaves them short on the time, money, and resources it takes to properly execute a social media plan. If you’ve been struggling to find your foothold, it’s time to turn the tables by ordering A Small Business Owner’s Guide to Social Media. In coordination with Strella Social Media, We’re offering a special 50% off, Thanksgiving / Black Friday / Small Business / Cyber Monday sale of this.

 
The Cornerstone CoffeehouseLocated in the heart of Camp Hill, Pa., The Cornerstone Coffeehouse offers the absolute best of what a small business can be. With a relaxed and inviting atmosphere, the Cornerstone offers an incredible selection of coffee, tea, and creative drink specials and top-quality lunch selections ranging from salads to hearty sandwiches to savory soups. They have cold treats during the summer, a warm atmosphere during the winter and year-round offers live music, special art displays by local artists, and a top-notch gourmet cooking school. The Cornerstone also has a private room which is a great place to hold meetings, private parties, and fundraisers. Visit the Cornerstone Coffeehouse website

 
The BadleesYou may not think of a rock band as a “small business”, but for nearly 23 years The Badlees have been run as just that. In their early years, they started their own record label to sell their albums, which sold so well that the big labels took notice. In 1995, they signed with one of those labels, toured the world with top-notch acts, and scored a couple of top 40 hits along the way. Now they own their own studio and once again produce their own music right here in Pennsylvania. In 2013, the band will do something they have never done before – release a double album – and they currently have an extensive program where fans can get involved in supporting this ambitious endeavor. Please check out the band’s website to get involved with this exciting project. The Badlees 2013 Double Album Campaign


Coming Soon

In December we will be launching three new websites, all of which offer exciting prospects.

Ron the Bagman is the owner of R. Davis Enterprises near Elizabethtown, PA. and is truly a unique client to say the least. On the technical side, Ron offers a range of services including logistics, distribution, wholesaling, warehousing, importing, exporting, LTL trucking with “white glove” service and, of course, top quality custom plastic bags made in the U.S.A. On the personal side, Bagman is an unforgettable personality who has done business around the world and is known by name at markets in New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Lancaster, Harrisburg, and many places in-between. 33 Dimensions is proud to be a new member of the “Bagman family”.

EMR Strategies and Kids Theatre News are both initiatives of a central Pennsylvania entrepreneur who has set her focus on expanding to other regions on the Northeast. EMR Strategies was established in 2008 to offer services for business executives, entrepreneurs, politicians and government officials with problem solving, strategic planning and organization. Kids Theatre News is a brand new initiative which will provide a central hub for students and parents involved in theatre shows and other stage events. This website will focus on medium-sized markets with a strong theatre community, starting with the Harrisburg, PA area and Albany, NY area and expanding to other locales in the future.

We strive for the continued growth and success of all our customers. Please support small business this weekend!
