facebook redesigns business pages

A tour of the latest makeover

Yes, they’ve done it again! Facebook has finally released its revamped business pages design, which was first announced on March 10th 2014. The new layout, which will only be available on Facebook’s desktop version, has a more “streamlined look” and looks very similar to the Facebook mobile app, accompanied with design changes and proximity to tools that page admins use the most.

Back in Business!

Half-way through ‘Squared Online’ a new challenge was lying ahead; compile a multi-channel plan (with focus on digital practices) for Squarelle Tonacity! A brand new, high-end, DIY, multi-tonal home hair colouring product, accompanied with a bespoke application tool, which helps busy professionals get salon-quality results at their own homes.

better late…

Than never! Part of our Squared Online Module 2 was to come up with a successful new online business idea; our ideas had to be creative, demonstrate innovation and relevancy, and show an in depth understanding of our client’s needs and branding objectives.

Every Squared was allocated to a group, and had to start interacting with his peers in order get to know one another, propose an original business idea and vote for the one that we could all see work! So, apart from coming up with an original idea that would potentially work and produce great results, the true challenge was to work in harmony and peace within a diverse team of nine Squares!

As expected, many strong business ideas were presented, which could be successful in the real world. And after several Hangouts and Google+ discussions, we’ve finally decided: let there be ‘Pitchalicious’! A cloud based web application that allows users to create and share rich media pitches to win new clients or business, following a Software as a Service (SaaS) revenue model.

‘Pitchalicious’ has to be fresh and new and different in order to succeed in a very competitive market, with well-established players. In order to tackle this difficulty, we knew that our product had to be unique. We tried to identify those characteristics that would help us diversify our product from the rest of the pack. A fresh, user-friendly product with an intelligent and well-rounded support team, and a very active community which will offer valuable tips and networking opportunities.

Our objective is to attract the entire working population – particularly small and agencies and freelancers. We strongly believe that there is some serious investment potential here, particularly with regards to the size and accessibility of the target market. And even though we aim high in terms of investment capital, I strongly believe that our team presents a viable business idea, which shows serious prospects, and would soon attract  investors!
