Achieve your goals with help from the internet

Smartphone with app

Happy New Year from everyone at the Internet Agency, we wish you all the best for 2013.

This year we will continue to strive to bring you expert web design, web hosting and video hosting as well as advice on social media, e-commerce and more.

Being that it’s January, many of you will be making New Years resolutions.  And while in the past the success of a resolution was down to pure discipline, technology and the internet is now lending a hand.

That’s right, if you own a smartphone you can achieve your goals with a New Years Resolution app.

How the internet is helping with health and well-being

Resolutions date back to 2000 BC when the Ancient Babylonians held festivals where they resolved to pay off debts and return borrowed farm equipment.  It was the Ancient Romans who carried the tradition over and decided on January 1st as a good date to carry out these resolutions.

According to a new survey, 87% of people will make resolutions for 2013 and over half those surveyed were making health-related resolutions.

Which has given birth to numerous apps to help people along.  There’s ‘5K Runner’ that slowly eases novice runners through a training regime that gets them running 5 kilometres within 8 weeks.

Other apps for more experienced runners use GPS to track distance, speed and calories burned.

Weight loss is another popular choice and in this category there are apps with a slight twist.  ‘Fooducate’ allows you to scan barcodes in the supermarket to find the health benefits for each food.  Meanwhile ‘DietBet’ appeals to those with a competitive streak.  It challenges users to lose 4 percent of body weight over 4 weeks.  Everyone bets money and those who succeed split the money.

All these are great ideas that have come to life through technology.  If you have a great idea for your business but need help, then contact Internet Agency today.  Our skilled web developers can turn your ideas into reality.

Have a great year and if one of your resolutions is to improve your on-line presence, Internet Agency can give you expert advice on web design, web hosting, video hosting and more.
