Who are you really advertising?

Barely a day goes by when I’m not handed a business card from someone using either a free email service, or their internet providers email domain. But what is the price of these free email addresses, and are you really advertising your business, or your ISP?

The true cost of a free email address

There is a saying, if you’re not paying for the product, then you are the product. Are you really advertising your business when your address is [email protected]? What you’re really doing is advertising your internet provider. Worse than that, what happens if you want to move to another provider? You’ll lose existing clients who have your “old” email address, not to mention the stationary and business cards you’ve been handing out all those years.

Have you ever been stopped from getting a better deal with your telephone calls because your phone line is tied to your internet provider? How much is that costing you? Do you see new internet deals advertised only for new customers? Do you wish you could be the new customer everyone is clambering to make happy?

You can have your own domain from as little as $10 per month. You can set up as many email addresses as you want, and have a website built to further advertise your business. No 85mm x 50mm business card alone can do that!

Are you advertising your business, or your ISP?

Electrical Test & Tag

Did you know we can also take care of all of your electrical test & tag needs?

Call us today to take the hassle out of your electrical test & tag requirements. Workcover require all electrical equipment used in environments where they’re exposed to moisture, heat, vibration, mechanical damage (crushing, bending), corrosive chemicals, even dust, to be tested and tagged regularly. Some insurance companies insist on it regardless of the environment the equipment will be in.

A power cord could look fine but has suffered crush damage that has compromised its insulation. Worse still, what if the cord has had the plug replaced after a pin was bent, or the plug was cut off to poke it through a hole in the wall. What if the active and neutral wires were switched around. It’s on AC power, so it switches polarities 50 times per second so it makes no difference. Wrong!

If the active and neutral wires are switched it can lead to damaged electrical equipment or electrocution.

Most devices switch off by disconnecting the active wire meaning that if the wiring is backwards the neutral has been disconnected but the active is still active. This means an improperly grounded appliance could be a hazard to your staff, your customers, and your business.

We are more than just an IT support company. We also have qualified electrical test and tag technicians. We will come to your office or work site and test all of your electrical equipment to fulfill your legal Safework Australia requirements.

Call us today to arrange a time for us to bring your office or warehouse up to code.
