We are proud to unveil our humble donation to the local Kingsgrove Community Aid Centre (KCAC), their newly functional revamped website is now up and running at www.kcac.org.au
Last year, we organised a contest where one lucky charitable organisation would get a website and digital presence overhaul for free. KCAC has been announced as the lucky winner and now their website is mobile friendly, search engine optimised, and professionally designed.
In response, KCAC has awarded us with this magnanimous certificate of appreciation. To once again quote Rose Caltabiano-Burman, Marketing/Promotions Officer for the Kingsgrove Community Aid Centre:
"We were delighted that NFT chose us as the community organisation to be given a new website. George and the team at Net Fusion Technology did a fantastic job with our new website and were great to deal with. We held a brainstorming meeting with George and once we had an idea of the basics that we wanted incorporated into the website, they worked on the rest and came up with a great layout which is functional and easy to navigate. I would recommend NFT to anyone. Not only are they supporting local community organisations, they are also very professional and attentive."
We would like to again express joy and fulfillment in support of KCAC. We could not have chosen a more deserving organisation to win the contest. And will continue to support of grassroots communities and causes in the future. In fact, we are already in the process of planning a new contest to find another worthy organisation to support so watch please watch out for it this year.
Anti clickbait extensions are more relevant now than ever before. We've discussed before why clickbait headlines are something every marketer should avoid. We've covered here the specific types of clickbait headlines that Facebook detects and down votes in the same blog post.
But now a global epidemic of ransomware has taken over so many computers and threatened to wreak even more havoc if not for one lucky techie that found the kill switch by accident, and avoiding clickbait headlines has become even more relevant. Why? Because it's one of the hackers most successful tools.
Computers in many countries around the globe froze due to malicious ransomware called: WanaCry. It made a computer's important files unusable by scrambling and encrypting them along with the promise of total deletion if the victim does not pay the malware creators.
Highly vital computer files of the victims were essentially held for ransom. Dozens of countries where hit. Targets ranged from companies, government agencies, and even hospital with files that needs access or else lives could be at risk.
This all just proves that nowadays, click bait is still the new currency for hackers as well as spammers everywhere. Just because it gets a lot of clicks, it doesn't mean that something is already good and true.
This is why Facebook, Google, and other internet digital giant companies have introduced projects that are geared towards eradicating click bait once and for all.
This year 2017 is getting looking more and more exciting as we announce a new development: long-time partner KDP (Kenya Development Palace) is now joining under the NFT brand. This is another strategic move in the ongoing crusade to conquer the both the digital landscape and global business sphere.

KDP retains its original talented team and will continue to provide quality web development, web maintenance, and web hosting. But now that they are joined as one under the NFT banner, expect even greater things as the potential level of collaboration expands possible solutions exponentially.
With KDP from Kenya joining the Philippine and Australian operations, NFT will now support 3 countries in 3 continents. NFT is now uniquely poised for exceptional Global reach.

For those who are not familiar, netball as a sport began at the same time as basketball and was specifically designed for women. Nowadays, it has evolved into is fast and strategic sport, demanding great physical prowess and mental fortitude. Right now, it is one of the most popular games by women in Australia and New Zealand.
NFT is excited to help develop the women's game of Netball in the Philippines and to enhance the cultural and social development of Filipino girls and women. To end, we leave you with an encapsulating quote from the President of Netball Philippines, Dr. Charlie Ho:
“In so short a time, Netball Philippines (soon to be “Philippine Netball Federation”) was able to train and send a developmental team to participate in the 25th Southeast Asian Games in Singapore last June with the support of the Philippine Olympic Committee.”

Thirroul, New South Wales â€“ Massive funding cuts by the federal government limited the funding for social programs. This policy agenda reduced the capacity of Australiaâ€™s community sector to provide assistance to people in need. Thirroul Neighbourhood Centre (TNC) is one of those organisations that were affected by the uncertainty and inadequacy of funding.
TNC is a non-profit organisation that serves the community of Northern Illawara. Founded in 1977, the centre has been developing youth and social programs and providing assistance in food, utility bills, and more as part of its emergency relief (ER) program.
Since July 2010, the number of individuals accessing the ER program has increased dramatically, most especially experienced in the last two years. With the high unemployment problem in Northern Illawara, more people are struggling and in need of assistance.
According to Emily Messieh, the Youth and Community Services Coordinator of TNC, approximately 185 families come in every month for assistance with food, utility bills, hygiene packs, medicine, and emotional and psychological support. These people include the homeless, people in domestic violence situations, people who have been assaulted, youth looking for work or who have been kicked out of home, people using alcohol and other drugs, and people experiencing violence and sexual abuse.
The funding cuts by the government have crippled the organisation and reduced its capacity to effectively meet the needs of people experiencing poverty and inequality. Because of this, the centreâ€™s opening hours have been reduced. TNC gets by with the help of volunteers and funds donated by families and local businesses.
In response to the growing challenges, TNC developed a program to raise funds for the centre. This program aims to encourage the participation of local business and donation of $150 per year. In line with this program, Net Fusion Technology (NFT) reached out to TNC to propose a fundraising campaign that will help further promote and generate funding for the neighbourhood centre.
â€œI read an article in the local newspaper that TNC needs urgent help from the business community in the form of funds or expertise. NFT decided to assist by donating our expertise in social media,â€ said George Votava, Director of NFT.
The NFT team in collaboration with TNC created an online cause funding campaign. NFT has been developing content and offering technical and social media expertise to TNC to further promote the cause funding campaign in social media and online.
â€œWe want to offer our help to develop a campaign to increase funding from the business community. Our target is 15K in 12 months,â€ said Votava. Through continuous effort in promoting TNCâ€™s cause funding campaign, NFT hopes to reach 15k goal funding in a year for the organisation.
Messieh shows appreciation of NFTâ€™s support, â€œNet Fusion Technology has been a tremendous support to Thirroul Neighbourhood Centre. Mikâ€™s work on our website, cause funding and social media has been so helpful. She always has great ideas and is happy to do whatever we ask. We enjoy working with them and are very happy to say they are our Bronze sponsor here at TNC.â€
NFT hopes that more local businesses offer their support to organisations like Thirroul Neighbourhood Centre. Contributing to the community must not be an option but a goal for any business or organisation. Whether through financial support or collaborative project, there is always a way to extend a helping a hand.
