“We needed a tool that would allow us to organise our thoughts and build on ideas.”
Once upon a time… we had all the ideas we could ever need.
Take yourself back to your childhood – when your imagination carried you places only you knew and stories unfolded each day that only you could tell.
When you’re playing at school or at home, the only place to get lost is in your thoughts.
Now snap back to your current life.
In the realities of work, office life, commutes and paying bills, our imagination often gets left behind.
Like a retired athlete, creative minds go soft around the edges if they’re not used regularly.
But when your job depends on your ability to create ideas, how do you ensure the well never runs dry?
Andrew Miller, creative brand strategist at Consultwebs – a law firm marketing agency in Raleigh, North Carolina – was looking for ways to increase the number of ideas his organisation produced.
Miller said: “I lead a team organised solely for the creation and promotion of ideas. These ideas are the powerhouse that spurs the creative and agile marketing strategies that equate to client growth.
“So a vital part of our process is ideation.
“Many of our team members work remotely and we needed a tool that would allow us to organise our thoughts and build on ideas.”
Miller added: “Tecmark’s 635 brainwriting tool has become a fundamental part in our ideation workflow process.
“We’ve held almost 20 brainwriting sessions and went from averaging 27 ideas per brainstorm (before Tecmark), to 108 ideas per Tecmark “˜brainwriting’ session.
“When utilised properly the 635 brainwriting tool can exponentially grow any organisation’s idea generation process. I’d highly recommend it.”

When it comes to building a decent website, content really is still king. The key to creating decent copy that not only draws readers to your site, but also gets your brand message across, is to make it compelling. You want to create something that’s actually worth reading – not just a scrambled up splurge […]
While it’s good to have words on your site, but copywriting isn’t just about filling up the page with words and moving on to the next task. There’s so much more to copywriting than hammering the keyboard for eight hours a day. Fulfilling the task requires a lot more than hitting the word count.
Search Engine Optimisation is an ongoing process and in order to get the most out of your results, you need to have a long term strategy in place. On the other hand, almost all new websites can benefit from an SEO boost in their baby stages.
