Nuffnang Australia Takes Off

In the past few months while I have been working on putting together Nuffnang Philippines, Ming has been keeping himself really busy too with another installment of our Nuffnang expansion plans.

We've always dreamed of making Nuffnang a regional blog advertising network and regional to us doesn't mean we start announcing that we accept bloggers from all over the world and call ourselves an international player, anyone can do that. It means we actually set up physical offices in the respective offices with staff there to better service the market in that country.

So since a few months ago Ming has been working together with two very experienced digital marketing Australians (Martyn and David) to set up the team and operations in Nuffnang Australia. After months of preparation, setting up a team and looking for people to add to our office in Melbourne, at 12.00AM today we finally launched Nuffnang Australia.

Among some of the first few bloggers to join us in Nuffnang Australia is someone pretty familiar to some of us here closer to home... Karen Cheng.

Here are some pictures of the Nuffnang office in Australia that I managed to steal off Ming's blog.

It's housed in this nice 3 storey building along with the offices of Frank Media.

and here are some pictures of how it looks on the inside.

Dammit I wanna go work there some day too.


There's even a nice chillout area or their version of the "Nuffie's Corner".

I'm really excited by all this.

Less than 2 years since Nuffnang started off in a small Penang office, today we have grown to have offices in Penang, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Manila and now Melbourne. It's exciting being at the front seat of a company that is growing so fast.

Now that Nuffnang Philippines seems to be picking up and growing really quick too, I can't wait to face all the challenges we'll have in our operations in a 4th country: Australia.

Thank you for having us Australia!

I tried logging in to the australia nuffnang page, but can't get in. Do I have to register separately for it?

- m i c h e l l e - said...

Oh, and on another note, from www.nuffnang.com.my, when i tried to navigate to the Nuffnang Australia though those countries' flag buttons, the link to the Nuffnang Australia ends with .com.ay instead of .com.au. :)

I have a question for you now. If I am permanently staying in Australia (Melb) and I have signed up for Nuffnang Malaysia (long time ago) is it possible to transfer my account to Nuffnang Australia?
