Studio 2 Online
    October 2007

Hello and welcome to this months edition of the Studio 2 Online’s newsletter. Woah, what a month it has been here, run on to catch up on all the gossip……


Another award winning website.
Upper Rectory Farm Cottages are a holiday cottage set in the beautiful surroundings of Appleby Magna, North West Leicestershire. Studio 2 Online launched their website in April 2007. This month they achieved the bronze award from the Enjoy England Excellence Awards for their site.
An achievement that we and Upper Rectory are delighted with! 
Jean Corbett from Upper Rectory says:
“We have received so many wonderful compliments about the sites design and how easy it is to use and winning this award simply confirms what we already know; we have a great site! Next step will be an online booking system, Gold here we come!”

Christmas e-card games.
November 15th is the last order date for our Christmas e-card games. They are eco-friendly, instantly sent and received and a much cheaper alternative to traditional paper cards. 
Don’t be subject to Royal Mail delivery problems – send an e-card game from Studio 2 Online. They can feature an online scoreboard that creates a competitive environment that results in your card being sent on to (on average) at least 3 extra people not on your mailing list.
Our scoreboard was still being added to late into February this year - lasting much longer than any traditional paper card as a brand awareness tool.
Don’t Delay, order yours today!
Call: 0116 2758456.

New Support Contracts.
In order to deliver the highest standard of support to our clients, Studio 2 Online have introduced new support contracts.
These contracts offer you access to unlimited e-mail and telephone support (Monday to Friday, 9am - 5pm) for your website editing systems, including CMS and OSB. Therefore from the 1st of November, when clients call for support they will require an active support contract in place, unfortunately without this we will be unable to provide support.
All clients that don’t currently have support contracts as part of their monthly fee, will by now have received an invoice offering a support contract. If you haven’t and require support, please contact your account manager to set one up. Due to the administrative overhead unfortunately we won’t be able to offer ad-hoc support.

Client Forum postponed.
As you all know, Studio 2 Online strive for excellence in everything we do and it is with this perfectionist view that we have decided to postpone our winter Client Forum.

It was a hard decision to make as we view the forums as an essential part of our growth structure. We feel however that as the world of Studio 2 Online is evolving at lightening pace, we would like the opportunity to complete our recruitment drive and have a fully functioning, larger team before we host a forum.
Don’t worry, there won’t be long to wait, we will be hosting a Forum in February 2008!
