Out with the old, in with the NEW! This year in place of open houses we will have season start-ups. This event is intended for owners and leadership team members. Start your season off with fresh ideas and more product knowledge. Come enjoy lunch with industry leaders and vendors. Twenty minute “TED Talks” will be held during the event.
1. Marketing 101
Getting Social and Building Trust
Learn how to use social media to get the word out about your company. What is social media? Why should I use social media? How do I maximize the social media I’m already using? It doesn’t matter if you’ve never even been to a social media site, or if you’re using social media now and just want to get better results. This program is for you
2. Profit Advantage of Add-On Sales
Improving labor productivity and adding massive growth to job profitability
Very often an add-on sale can be added to a job with little or no additional hours required. Job profitability can sometimes be doubled! We’ll talk how add-ons work and run the profitability numbers. Effective labor utilization is the key to contractor profits. Add-ons might help you make more from the labor you are already paying for.
3. Knowing What To Do When You Don’t Know What to Do
How a Board of Advisers Pushes You Upward and Forward
A session for business owners or company presidents. We’ll talk about what a Board is, what a Board does, and some tips about forming and operating a Board.
This session offers an eye-opening, incredibly helpful, and low-cost alternative to being alone at the top. Use outside experts to improve inside operations. They can bring serious skill and perspective to benefit your business mission. A host of reasons exist to employ an outside board, but here are some of the better ones:
- They support your mission
- They add fresh perspectives
- They bring experience and wisdom
- They provide accountability and keep you focused
Boards bring the wisdom and perspective you’re looking for, and they support your goals. They provide accountability and keep you focused. Gives you the focus and confidence to press forward when uncertainty clouds your resolve. There’s hardly a downside to an advisory board.
If you’re willing to work and subject yourself to the scrutiny of others, (creating a board) is the best investment you’ll ever make in your life. Clay Mathile, founder of Iams pet food
