Arkitip = Yummy

I just received my latest copy of art / design magazine Arkitip. With the latest issue my renewal of subsciption form was enclosed. Opening every issue is like Christmas. As well as a beautifully designed magazine, each issue contains a free gift. I've had t-shirts, viewmasters, driving gloves, a tote bag and this month a 7" inch. The sheer joy of opening each issue is making it hard for me to not resubscribe - despite the dropping NZ dollar.

Google Rallynz?

I've been intrigued by this campaign that I assume has been run by Rally New Zealand. Instead of the conventional URL on a poster, they ask you to Google Rallynz. I would love to hear the strategic rationale behind the campaign. Whatever their intention I've definitely found it has made me think.

Crackerjacks, Freedom from 9 to 5

The Whisper Shop have had a major client project in incubation for a little while now, but the egg has finally hatched. Last Thursday we launched Crackerjacks.

Crackerjacks is New Zealand's marketplace for contractors. Up until now, someone else has always dictated when and where you work. But not any more. Crackerjacks' contractors have a lot more control over how they spend their time. As a contractor you decide when you work, who you work for and how much you want to earn, and with Crackerjacks now it can all be managed at your fingertips.

If you're one of the New Zealanders crying out for more leave and greater flexibility of working hours, contracting is a great way for you to achieve that all important work/life balance, allowing you to own your own time. Contracting gives you the freedom of being your own boss, minus the responsibility of running a business. It allows you to do what you like with a Monday, mould a Friday to suit yourself and you get to choose what you're going to do with your own December. It's completely up to you. As a Crackerjacks contractor you get to pick and choose how you spend your time, and most importantly, you are in control of your own life. It's the contemporary way to approach your career.

Crackerjacks is for people of any vocation, is great for mum's returning to the workforce, people who are studying part-time, older people who aren't quite ready to retire yet and of course people who want to make more money and want greater flexibility in their working style. And of course, since we're going to build the most comprehensive collection of contractors in NZ, if your business needs to hire a contractor - you now know where to look. We believe we are offering businesses the most cost effective and user friendly offering in the market.

Spend your life wisely, become a contractor. check out and become a fan on Facebook
