What happens in Vegas Goes on Social Media

It’s Fall! This time of year always means leaves changing, blankets for the horses, less dog hair in the house, lots of football and of course preparation for the International Builders’ Show (IBS). IBS may happen until January 19-21 of 2016; but presenters start getting education sessions ready long before then. October and November is when I really start building out the bulk of my presentations, which includes lots of brainstorming, research, information-gathering and actually putting ideas down on paper (okay, not paper, exactly, but you get the idea). We get started now before the holidays hit and our schedules get even more hectic than usual. After all, I have online shopping to do and vacations to plan!

I will be presenting two education sessions at IBS 2016.  On Thursday, January 21, at 11 a.m., I will present “Mobile Marketing – Engage Your Customers via Your Website,” in Remodeling Central, with Marketing RELEVANCE managing partner Mitch Levinson. In this session, we’ll discuss recent changes in mobile Read More→

IBSVegas mRELEVANCE boothIt just seems fitting that as mRELEVANCE celebrates its Lucky 7 anniversary that we will exhibit at the International Builders’ Show (IBS)  in Vegas for the first time. Our Lucky 7 themed booth is the perfect way for us to reach existing and prospective clients. IBS, held January 19-21, 2016, is the largest annual light construction show in the world, attracting 50,000 visitors from more than 100 countries each year.  I will be spending much of my time at the show in our booth. I’m really excited about it and hope you will come by #C2665 in nextBUILD to meet the mRELEVANCE team.

We are very excited to exhibit this year, and have been hard at work developing our booth, display, product offerings and of course, swag and giveaways, to offer guests to our booth. Our booth focuses on Return on Investment (ROI) and how mRELEVANCE is a “Safe Bet for Your Marketing Dollars.” We will showcase all of our services – social media, public relations, website design, marketing strategy, creative design and more. Visitors to the booth will be able to learn more about our processes/approach to projects and clients.

I will be presenting two sessions this year. And of course, there will be many education sessions and networking opportunities that I won’t be missing out on, so I will have lots of backup at the show. mRELEVANCE will be represented by SEVEN team members this year, myself; Mitch Levinson, managing partner; Lauren Cooper, Account Coordinator; Megan Morgan; Graphic Designer; Bryan Nonni, Social Media Manager; Courtney Rogers; Account Manager and Doug Silk, SEO Coordinator. IBS will be a unique, valuable opportunity for our clients from across the Read More→

Ever Wondered Why 7s are Lucky?

Posted by: | Comments (0)

7 presentations in vegasThere are seven cosmic stages, seven ancient and visible planets, seven Chakras in Indian culture, seven days in a week and seven colors in a rainbow. Pythagoreans called it the perfect number, the universe was created in seven days and in Chinese culture, the seventh day of the first moon of the lunar year celebrates the universal birthday of all human beings.

And if you’ll be in Vegas for the joint National Association of Home Builders International Builders Show (IBS) and National Kitchen and Bath Association’s Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS), sevens can be lucky if you pull three in a row on a slot machine. Seven has been my lucky number since I was a little girl,  but seven is also a great number because it is the number of opportunities you will have to sit in on one of my programs at KBIS and IBS.

It will be a busy three days, but I am excited about the social media and marketing strategies, tips and ideas that my co-presenters and I will share in these presentations.

Tuesday, February 4:
My Brother Built It, Why Doesn’t It WORK?; 10:30 AM – 11:30 AM (KBIS)
The State of Social Media 2014; 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM, South 221 (IBS)
The State of Social Media 2014 [Encore]; 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM, South 221 (IBS)

Wednesday, February 5:
2014’s Best Digital Marketing Tools & Tactics; 8:00 AM – 9:00 AM, South 227 (IBS) Read More→

Vegas Baby, Vegas!

International Builders ShowNext week I’m attending the 2013 International Builders Show in Vegas! IBS is always a blast because I get to network and catch-up with my friends from around the country.  Additionally, I am running for Vice Chair of Professional Women in Building. This is an amazing group of women that represent all facets of the industry. It will be a pleasure to work on a national level to represent them!

Finally, I am presenting for the fifth year at the International Builders Show. The first time I presented was in 2009 when I presented “How to Be a Social Media Butterfly.” It is kind of crazy to reflect back, but that was the first social media presentation at IBS. Now five shows later, I’m presenting, “Beyond Facebook: Pinterest, Google+ and More” with two fellow MIRMs. This seminar is geared toward those who have Facebook, Twitter and blogging down and are looking for the newest social media tools. We will discuss the importance of and how to develop content that drives sales; mobile websites; QR codes and the fastest growing social media sites in the industry: Google+, Pinterest, FourSquare, Instagram and Houzz.

My co-presenters are Kelly Fink of The Providence Group and Paula Huggett of The Bokka Group. We’ve each spent lots of time preparing for the seminar, and Read More→

Hello and Happy New Year!

I’m happy to announce that I’ll be starting the year off by giving a seminar, “Facebook for Business: Build Fans and Grow Customers” at the Cartersville-Bartow County Chamber of Commerce. The seminar will be held this coming Friday, January 13 at 11:30 am in the Anheuser-Busch Community Room.

Facebook is such a vital tool for personal and professional life- I don’t know where we’d be without it. Did you know that Facebook has nearly 800 million active users? More than half of them log on daily. Think of the fantastic potential for networking and marketing!

Whether Facebook is still foreign to you or you’re just looking for some fresh ideas for your profile, there’s something for you at the seminar this Friday. Come join me in navigating Facebook’s newest changes and hear tips for branding yourself and your company.

The event is free to all members of the chamber, and lunch can be pre-ordered for only $8. The cost to attend $35 for non-members.

If you would like to attend, there is still space! You may register online by January 12.
