Across The Coast May 2012 Newsletter

Hi Welcome to the first edition of the new look Across The Coast newsletter.
We have had such a great reaction to the new name, it was hard after 7 years to stop calling ourselves MR LCD, but we are getting used to it.
There has also been such a great response to Across The Coast offering website services, and our first website went live this week.

Why do I need a web presence? And what is a web presence anyway?
Image I think there are a lot of businesses that spend a lot on marketing & advertising, but they are missing a huge tool that once setup, can be very cheap to maintain.
If you compare how much it costs to do a run of 1,000 pamphlets, which then go out to every house in the area.  You don’t know how many of the people who get your pamphlet even look at it, or how many are looking for your services at that exact moment.

Article Two
Image         Email spammers are having to work hard these days, a lot more people are aware of how to spot a fake email.  My top three tips are: 1. If you have never dealt with the person or company and have no reason why they would be emailing you, assume it is spam and delete it. Lately I have been getting emails about my police record, but since I know I don’t have a criminal record, I delete them straight away. 2. If you have dealt with the person or company, and have opened the email to read it, look for spelling and grammar errors.  I have received emails from the Commenwealth Bank, so the misspelt Commonwealth gives that away. 3. If you have opened it, and are still not convinced, before you click on the link, just hover your mouse pointer over it, which will, depending on your mail program, pop up a little box showing where the link will take you.  If it doesn’t match where they tell you, or if it adds anything before the site, do not click it.

Article Three
ImageMichael had to make the awful phone call this morning to let a customer know that to *attempt* to recover the years of business data from their failed hard drive, it was going to cost over $2,500. Please make sure that you have a backup system in place, whether it’s for business data, or all your precious photos. We have external hard drives in stock if you need them, Michael can come & install it for you, and set you up with a really simple backup system for $220

MR LCD is now Across The Coast

From today, 14th February 2012, MR LCD will be changing our name to Across The Coast. It will be the same great service that you have come to expect from Michael and Laura, but with a new name!

As a part of the big changes, we are now going to be offering some new services to our customers who are involved with running a
business. So please read on if that’s you (and if not, we’d love it if you could pass this on to any friends or family you have that may run a business)

Does your business have an online presence? Do you want to appear more reputable and generate more buyers by having a website personalised for your business? Or if you already have a website, is it generating regular enquiries for you?

If you know this is an area of your business that could be improved then I’ve come up with the perfect solution to reach out and offer my help.

I’m opening up just 10 spots to consult with me — at no cost, my treat! — for 30 minutes.

Join me for a “Website Opportunities Review Session” where I’ll walk you through:

* A review of your current online presence
* Analysis of your current Google results
* Simple ways to reach more customers by utilising the internet

So WHY am I doing this?


Since having major surgery in 2011 to release the nerves that were trapped in both my elbows, I have had a relief from the agonising
pain that I was living with constantly.
This has freed me up to spend more time working closely with Michael in our business and further supporting and servicing our valued clients. I have always been on top of our online presence, and want to use that knowledge to help our customers to build their businesses through the internet.

But time in my diary is limited so I can only offer 10
spots. Does one have your name on it?


Simply hit reply and answer these simple questions, or click here to fill out the form online
IMPORTANT: You must answer ALL the questions.

These questions are so I can ensure the session suits you
& is focused on you and your online opportunities.

1. Do you already have a website?
What is its’ URL?

2. When it comes to your business, what do you need the most
help with? (Choose the top two)

– Creating a website

– Making sure your website reaches your intended audience

– Using the right words & phrases to make sure your website is found

– Getting additional leads from your existing site

– Making sure your website accurately represents your brand

– Other (if other, what is it?)

3. What is the #1 obstacle that you’re struggling with in getting
your Business online?

4. How would you like your online presence to look in 6
months time, or by the end of 2012?

Please also include your name & contact details (email
& phone) so we can get in touch with you.

right track, I encourage you to take action and reply.

To Your Online Success,

Laura Drummond

MR LCD changes to Across The Coast

After 8 years of providing reliable computer service to the Central Coast of NSW, we have decided to change our name from MR LCD to Across The Coast.

With the changes in technology, and the new services that we will be offering, we feel that the name MR LCD no longer reflects everything that we can offer you.

We promise the same great service that you have come to expect from Michael and Laura, but with a new name.
