Former local’s web success
Saturday, 9th April, 2016
A former local has been busy developing web platforms to help organisations with different events.
Ex-Broken Hill and Wilcannia resident, Kelly McPherson, has created an online space called “Just Clik” which, since it started in December, has reached between 60,000 and 100,000 people online every week.
Kelly designed the website through her own business Top Gun Multimedia with the objective of encouraging citizen journalism, and promoting specials from local businesses.
Charities and other not-for-profits also have the opportunity to raise money and discuss topics of importance.
“I haven’t received much engagement from the Broken Hill community to date but the platform is there for Broken Hill to use at no cost for editorial content if there are locals who are interested in contributing content,” Kelly said.
“The exciting part of our long term multimedia strategy is that we are now preparing to launch stage two on July 1.”
The next stage is a ticketing website called “Rotix 4 Humanity” which is free to event organisers and provides many services not available from any online ticketing platform.
They include free artwork, social media promotion, online editorial, an Australian call centre and a minimal flat rate processing fee and merchant processing fee paid by event customers.
Kelly is the director of public relations for the Shepparton Rotary Club so she is also offering spefcials to Rotary. Thirty cents from every Rotix 4 transaction associated with a Rotary club will be donated to Rotary; every non-Rotarian event will attract a 15 cents per transaction donation to Rotary, and a 15 cents donation to any other approved charity, school or hospital.
“I have recently advised Broken Hill Rotary clubs of this exciting initiative and hope to see them on board and using the Rotix 4 Platforms for future events and the benefit of the Broken Hill community and district area.
“The general consensus is that it is an excellent strategy that will benefit a lot of people.”
