We all need to remember that every little bit counts, no matter how small the change or contribution. We all play a part in conserving the environment, and there is no better time to start making a change than right now! So ask yourself- are you the adjective or the verb?

The year 2012 was a busy but fruitful year for Eva-Last Distributors and everyone was ready to let their hair down with a bit of fun and food at the company year-end function.
The day started off bright and early with everyone donning their racing suits for an endurance race at the Randburg Raceway Indoor Karting track. Everyone was split into teams of 6 and after a quick breakfast the fun began! After nearly 4 hours of racing, a few bumps and bruises and a significant amount of laughs, the grey team came out victorious! Well-done guys, Lewis Hamilton had better watch out!

We trust you enjoyed part 1 of our social media blog post that dove into the Facebook platform and how it can be integrated into your corporate marketing environment.
In this 2nd and final part of our social media blog, we look at Twitter.
Twitter is similar concept to Facebook that allows people to leave a ‘status’ of no more than 160 characters. There is also the option to upload photo’s, online links and website addresses. All you need to do is set up a profile and select your username. You will be given the option of adding a profile image/ picture, a short description of yourself, your website address as well as your location. Once your profile is setup, fellow Twitter users can choose ‘follow’ you and you can in turn ‘follow’ them or any other users registered on the site. Put simply, when someone chooses to ‘follow’ you, and vice versa, they have selected to subscribe to the information you put out there. This is direct marketing at its best.
With the communication revolution known as social media, it has now become socially acceptable to ‘follow’ and ‘poke’ people. In fact, it’s encouraged!
While some of the lingo requires some practice and understanding, this modern form of communication and interaction between people is slowly but surely taking over. Despite what some people may believe, these platforms are not only restricted to teenagers wanting to chat to their friends about their weekend plans. When utilised correctly, it can be a great marketing tool in the corporate world. It allows organisations to get their name out there and at the same time it offers you an alternative method to track and monitor what people are saying about your brand.
If you haven’t yet heard of or signed up with Pinterest.com, then this post is for you. Its interesting, its inspiring and best of all its free.
Gone are the days where you are restricted to discovering ideas and images in magazines or on tacky corporate calendars. This revelation is just a click away! Pinterest is designed around the sharing of pictures, inspiration and I guess what we call just general AMAZEMENT. All you need to do is sign up using your email address (at no cost), and then start browsing through the array of images that other users have uploaded. Whether you are looking for a picture of Monte Picchu at sunset, or just a beautifully designed living room, you are guaranteed to find something that catches your eye.
For years the industry has been looking for an alternative to timber pergolas. Just like with timber decking, a natural wooden pergola needs to be maintained or it will rot and be destroyed over time. Annually sanding and sealing your timber pergola will dramatically increase its life span. The problem with this is that a pergola generally stands more than two meters high making it even more difficult to maintain than that of an actual timber deck.
Thus the requirement for a low maintenance pergola system is created. This new system is a breakthrough in composite technology, utilizing the beauty and maintenance free benefits of wood plastic composite on the outside along with the strength and resilience of structural steel on the inside. The steel is used as reinforcement inside the new Eva-tech pergola system allowing for a span that has never been seen before in wood plastic composite products.
DIY has become a term that is equally feared and loathed by men across the country; which is why it’s time for us ladies to step up to the plate and show these useless fellows how it’s done. Girls! Girls! Calling all girls! Grab your hammer and screw driver and prepare to spend this weekend being awesome!
