We Most Certainly Have Our Work Cut Out For Us

 

33 Dimensions Newsletter, Labor Day edition
September 2, 2013

SisyphusHappy Labor Day everyone.

In the literal spirit of today’s holiday, I am writing this brief newsletter to reaffirm my comittment to work harder than anyone for the success of my customers and my company. In all honesty, this has been a rather sluggish summer for business expansion, as some of the expected (or hoped for) opportunities did not quite break our way. Growing and expanding a small business has been tough due to the continued uncertainty in the economy and lukewarm consumer confidence.

However, as a firm believer in the promise of the future, I resolve to double my efforts and press forward in the face of these challenges. Right now, we choose to focus upon the optimistic fact that this is an incredible time for web technology with a fantastic array of new tools and technologies to forge the future of our business. So for the next four months, through the end of this year, we will work our tails off building this business and providing the best and most up-to-date technology for our current and new customers. Consider this a “New Year’s resolution” four months in advance, as we expect to be moving at full speed when 2014 arrives.

Stay tuned, folks!

Moving Day

 

33 Dimensions Newsletter
June 9, 2013

Moving BoxesJune 9th

This date has become known around my house as “Moving Day” due to the amazing coincidences of big events on this date through the years. Starting in 1996, when my wife Karyn and I moved into our first home on June 9th of that year. Two years to the day, on June 9, 1998, we bought our first home together in Drums, Pa, where we stayed for six years. On June 9, 2004 we signed a lease on a townhouse in Silver Spring Township as we migrated to the Harrisburg area due to my employment at the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania which began a year earlier on (you guessed it) June 9, 2003. Seven years ago today, on June 9, 2006, we closed on the sale of our current home in the Middletown area (where we plan on staying for a while). Finally, it was on June 9, 2011 when 33 Dimensions began to officially operate as an LLC.

So what’s in store for today? Well, while we’re not physically “moving” anywhere, we are vastly traversing new frontiers as an expanding small business, especially with respect to the new services we now offer our clients.

News from 33 Dimensions

It is estimated that about 4-6 weeks ago (sometime in late April or Early May), the threshold was crossed where more people access the internet via a mobile device than those who access using traditional desktops or laptops. Further, it is highly unlikely that this trend will ever reverse. With this in mind, 33 Dimensions is now developing websites using Responsive Design, which adapts and optimizes the site for any screen size, whether desktop, tablet, or mobile. We have also recently re-designed our own website using responsive design.

Some other new services which we are now offering include Video Editing and productions of montage style promotional videos, Graphic Design, and a full range of Social Media services.

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

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!
