It has been about six months since we started Vervely. Almost unbelievable that it has only been that long, as it feels like we’ve been operational for much longer, considering how much has happened since we opened our doors (both virtually and otherwise).
We’ve set up and launched a few programs and projects, including our VIP Circle, which now has members from Australia, Canada, and the USA. It contains about half a dozen exclusive resources in the digital library, and still growing.
We’ve recently moved to Our Office Today premises, which is a coworking office space in the city that I blogged about in my personal blog. So, if you’re ever in Adelaide, let us know. We’d love for you to come by the office!
Over the last 6 months, Vervely was represented at the Social Media and Mobile Apps Forum in New Zealand (June), Collaborate To Innovate Adelaide as a speaker (August), Adelaide Beauty Bloggers Conference (September), Nad’s Product Launch Lunch as one of its contractors (September), Windows 8 Launch by Microsoft Australia in Sydney as a blogger (October), and at the Eat Drink Blog 2012: Australian Food Bloggers Conference as a speaker (November).
We’ve also done a Social Media Voice and Personality webinar for Microsoft Citizenship Asia Pacific, Vervely’s first official client in October.
We are also looking at taking part in the following events:
Other milestones to celebrate: Welcomed 2 long-term clients officially + 1 short term project with another client (with 1 new long-term client kicking off this week), 600+ FB likes, 300+ Twitter follows, almost 200 newsletter subscribers…
And, we’re looking forward to many more events, projects, and milestones as we enter the second half of our first year.
