Triple P magazine site launched, Antwerp BE
The brand new site www.triplepmagazine.be was launched on the 24th of November during a press conference. The speakers were Marc Wellens, Hilde Weekers, a representative of Kind en Gezin and Luk Wyns. The site promotes the new magazine about the Positive Parenting Program(by Matt Sanders, Queensland university) and hopes to engage many parents. The goal is to reach 60,000 families in the province of Antwerp. The site shows content from the magazine, 5 TV spots made by Luk Wyns from Grappa and extensive info about the program.

Survey "Woord in Beeld" (Words Pictured), Antwerp BE
Raboo Design has finished the preparations for the big survey "Woord in Beeld", which results hopefully will give an answer to effectively communicate with Etnic minority groups in Western society. The results are primairily meant for the graphic industry and everyone involved in visual communication. "What colors do they like, what kind of images speak to them?" Flinging a couple of Arabic words on a flyer is not sufficient. We truly need to be able to understand the mind of those Etnic groups that often fall out of the boat due to misunderstandings and general ignorance. The survey is an initiative of Verbal Vision, a Belgian agency specialized in Etno communication.

Newsletter system for Decenniumdoelen 2017, Brussels BE
We decided to work with Aweber to set up the newsletter system for DCD because it has a robust online application to manage subscribers, auto responders and newsletters. It has been tested by thousands of companies over the years and it is one of the best systems I have ever seen. The only disadvantage is that some parts, like dates are in English, which can be a problem for other languages. Apart from that, it is great to work with it. You can fully automate the workflow of newsletters.
Once setup, the only thing the client needs to do is to write couple of news items and the system does the rest. It also tracks how many people receive the newsletter and how many open it effectively or follow leads to the web site. This is a great way to improve the quality of your newsletters because it click-through's are low, your content may need improvement.
We use the system for quite some time now, especially for WomenCorp.org and Miracle Tutorials and we never had any issues with it.
Aweber delivers the newsletters faithfully the moment you wrote the last news item

DivorceMyWay moves to WordPress, Santa Monica USA
All blog systems have quirks one way or the other but WordPress is the king of SEO. It is loved by Google and it is extremely user friendly. That is why the CEO of Divorcemyway asked me to revamp the site and at the same time migrate from MoveableType to WP.
Because her site had only about 30 posts so far, the move went smoothly with little surprises.

Beauty Match migrates to WordPress, Toronto Canada
Migrating a blog site with over 600 posts is not a simple task. It involves some typical hardships that get worse related to the amount of posts you have, but if you are not happy with a blog system, it is worthwhile the pain. Many bloggers start with MoveableType, Blogger or TypePad, but when you want to build your business around blogging, you soon discover that WordPress holds all the Aces.
