Creating Connections Photo Competition Winner Announced

 

 

 

 

 

 

Back in November we launched the Creating Connections Photo Competition on the Connector Facebook page. We used RazorCoast to develop this Facebook app which was very easy to set-up and install and we have seen great results through our growing fan base. We would highly recommend this application to anyone looking to create a competition on their Facebook page.

Applicants had to upload a picture of themselves with their favourite connection whether it was a friend, boyfriend, girlfriend, a family member or even a pet. We had loads of entries but sadly there can only be one winner. And who is the lucky winner I hear you ask? Based on your votes, the winner of the Creating Connections Photo Competition is…(drum roll please)…Paul Seeber.

Congratulations to Paul who has won a fantastic gift bag!

Connector Summer BBQ

Connector Events trials OWJO social commerce store

Connector Summer BBQOWJO is an e-commerce service, a portable online store enabling people sell on any platform, such as Facebook, or any other website.

It has been in development by designer David Johnston since 2006, with €1.5m invested into the company. The unique thing about OWJO is that it allows customers to buy on Facebook without redirecting them away from fanpages and websites during the sale. Also OWJO allows people to pay with  debit card (Laser) as well as with credit card (Visa, Mastercard, etc). The service only earns money when sales are made and it has a competitive sales commission of 7pc.

As a result, OWJO has received a large variety of adopters. Irish sports store Elverys use it to sell on social networks. The radio station Phantom FM uses it too. The service was also used to sell unseen Thin Lizzy artwork from the creator’s Facebook account.

Here is an example of our OWJO store installed into our WordPress website to promote a Connector event. The same platform was also used on our Facebook page.
