Kiwi Connect has accepted a unique invitation to become the 1st not-for-profit organisation to sign up with the RealStew communications platform – a whole new Zealand innovation that is poised to revolutionise the way the world communicates and interacts.
RealStew has cleverly integrated all of the ways we connect online – chat, email, social networking, user groups, blogs and website – into one single internet page with an easy-to-use dashboard and all the apps you’ll ever need to connect, engage and interact with friends, family, customers and clients.
Kiwi Connect chairman Mike Jacobs said the Realstew platform is going to be section of the not-for-profit’s overall communications strategy, which includes the site at www.kiwiconnect.org, Facebook page (kiwiconnect.org), Twitter (@kiwiconnect) and LinkedIn (kiwiconnect.org).
“We’re running with RealStew because we admire their vision and we’re thrilled to discover a New Zealand company graduate from the Icehouse business incubator by using these an innovative platform,” Mr Jacobs said.
“We’ll be delighted if RealStew helps us connect all the expats in your patch and enables us to engage using them professionally.
“Our focus isn’t on building our network; it’s not about earning money through the relationship; it’s chiefly in regards to the product itself. We believe our members will be interested in the platform and also the simplicity of getting each of their communication channels in the one browser. That’s pretty clever.”
RealStew will sponsor the MELTING POT area of the Kiwi Connect website, promoting and provoking comment and insights from expat New Zealanders, and has put in place Kiwi Hook up to be the first community group to invite members to connect via RealStew.
“RealStew is as simple as invitation only,” Mr Jacobs said, “so we’re in the rrrealslew of connecting pioneers for the free chat, email and social networking components of the platform.
“We’re also allowing traditional Kiwi early adopters to get the first one to purchase every one of the RealStew apps and tools they must make their lives easier, including the ability to blog or produce a customised website.”
RealStew returns 54% from the revenue to its members and Mr Jacobs says money earned by Kiwi Connect will probably be ploughed back to supporting its operations and enhancing events.
