Fantastic board meeting with Hardy Smith, Non-Profit Consultant on January 8, 2016
OUR NEW VBIA PRESIDENT
NEW SMYRNA BEACH — Jake Hickson was born and raised in a construction family so he feels right at home as the 2016 president of the Volusia Building Industry Association.
“I look forward to being bold and challenging people,” said Hickson, vice president of Hickson Construction in New Smyrna Beach. “If your life depends on a healthy construction trade, then how can you not be contributing to the association?”
Volusia’s building industry is a critical part of the county’s economy. But does the industry get the respect it deserves?
Hardy Smith showed VBIA’s leadership how to elevate the organization’s community profile and increase appreciation for our member companies.
Hardy is a consultant and speaker who maximizes performance of nonprofits and associations. His results-oriented approach is based on a career of more than 30 years in the high performance world of NASCAR racing.
Consumer Information Is King
Are you ready for the informed home buyer? If not, notes Sam Rashking, you'd better start getting ready because a new era's upon us.
Think about buying a car today compared with a decade ago. In particular, think of all the information you have before you visit a car dealer.
Think about what you know about Performance. You know each car’s efficiency in terms of its Miles-Per-Gallon rating, how fast it accelerates from 0 to 60 mph, turning radius, handling, and how well it performs in crash and safety tests.
How to Market Your Business on Instagram
Instagram has taken the world by storm, and its recent acquisition by Facebook only confirms its entry and place in the big leagues. While it is every bit the social network that Facebook and Twitter are, there are a few differences in marketing with Instagram that you need to understand if you intend to try marketing there.
Ways to effectively market on Instagram
Here are 5 tips for marketing your business on Instagram.
Use Video On Instagram – This newish feature in Instagram is similar to Vine, but their videos are a whopping 15 seconds as opposed to 6. Way more canvas to paint on.
Use lots of hashtags – While engagement drops significantly on Twitter if you use more than 2 hashtags, the opposite seems to be the norm for Instagram. Load them up!
Don’t post incessantly – Unlike many other social networks less can be more here. You don’t want to fill up your follower’s feeds and be less special. Shoot for a few times a week and post great content.
It's Here! The updated Spike Roster (11/30/15) is now available!
“Every man owes a part of his time and money to the business or industry in which he is engaged. No man has a moral right to withhold his support from an organization that is striving to improve conditions within his sphere.”
