Home Show approaching fast!

Please come out to the NC State Fairgrounds during the Home Show this weekend to see some great suggestions for remodeling, landscaping, etc.  We would love to see our past, present and future customers!

Tidbit of the day:  Don’t forget to change those air filters “after” the pollen has finished falling.  You would be amazed at how much ends up in your duct work.

This past weekend was the Southern Ideal Home Show

We had a great turn out this past weekend at the Southern Ideal Home Show at the Raleigh NC Fairgrounds.  We saw quite a few past clients who came to visit.   During a slow time, I caught some of our people off guard with a few snaps.  We were offering a home show special $8995 for a full renovated 5×9 bathroom like you would see in almost any home in America.  This is usually the hall, kids  or guest bathroom.  The great selections were priced very attractively by our vendors and KathyLynn Gariboldi from reInvented Spaces made selections for two typical themes.  One is somewhat contemporary and the other is a traditional version.  I’ll post pictures of the display boards in the next day or so.  This special was so well received that we will be offering this package for a while at the show price.  Thank you all for stopping by to visit.

We survived the Home Show

We had a very good turnout at the home show.  Everyone in the company shared in the endurance test.  We ended up with an amazingly good crowd with quite a few great conversations.  I have appointments scheduled all next week.

When I downloaded the photos from my camera I came across some surprises.

At the home show again

Well we had a great day yesterday with lots of traffic. For a Friday it was very good. Marcia and Phillip are here even though Phillip still has a fat lip from his encounter with Rawlings of
softball fame. Bill Russel will be here shortly and he doesn’t know it yet but we have a bill waiting for him for booth rental. I’ll take some snaps soon and upload them. If you want to come but didn’t get tickets, just give my cell phone 625-6556 and I’ll make arrangements to get you in free. The hours today are from 10-8.

More Exciting News

I was contacted this morning by an editor for the NARI (National Association of the Remodeling Industry) to see if I would be willing to allow them to use a LinkedIn post that I created a while ago. Of course I said great to that idea. While we were on the phone Nikki asked some additional questions because she said she was under a deadline. Happens to turn out it was really some deadline. My comments and list were published this afternoon. Talk about being against the wall. See Below:

In many of the articles on marketing in Tuffin’ It Out and in the Remodelers Journal, the importance of branding is a strong theme. And one of the most important places to brand your company-and the most overlooked-is at your booth at a home show.

For many remodeling contractors, the look of the booth is the focus of the home show planning, but this does not go far enough because there are so many other elements to think about.

John Sperath, of Blue Ribbon Residential Construction in Raleigh, N.C., has a booth at both the spring and fall Raleigh Southern Ideal Home Show in central North Carolina every year. He has developed a 10-point checklist to ensure you have a successful show and further your brand marketing with face-to-face contact with remodel-ready homeowners.Read more! http://www.nari.org/tuffinitout/ follow the first item on the list.

Southern Ideal Home Show

Wow what a show. Even though traffic was somewhat light, we spoke with many people who have very nice projects they are considering. It was also a chance to catch up with some people who we have worked with in the past. Thank you to all who visited with us.
