Autumn 2011

A Turtle Technology newsletter, with a focus on mobile apps & websites

Hi Everyone, with Easter just behind us, we're running out of time to send out our Autumn Newsletter. We had an exciting summer season with some great new projects and a ramp-up of our marketing efforts.
In particular we have been focusing on building new relationships with agencies and consulting companies - but we still love direct client work. We continue to focus mainly on designing and building websites but we are now introducing our new app development service for mobile devices (i.e. apps for Android, iPhone etc). We therefore devote much of this newsletter to mobile-related articles.
-Daniel Scott.

If you use a decent content management system you will only need to maintain your content in one place. Contact us to find out how this can be achieved.
