Ryan Bohn, vice president of sales and marketing for Contracting Marketing Pro’s, was the speaker at the February Membership Luncheon of the North Texas Home Builders Association, held Thursday, Feb. 4, at the Kemp Center for the Arts. Texas Best catered the event.
Bohn said the Contractor Marketing Pro’s (CMP) has partnered with the Texas Association of Builders to assist its members in getting more business. He said as a professional lead-generation service, CMP has the insight as to what it takes to market your own company better and how to get the best exposure you can online. He presented the exclusive lead-generation program that is currently being offered through the TAB. Additionally, offered general Google advertising advice. He said people today do a Google search when finding businesses, settling arguments or just answering questions.
He suggested creating a Google plus page for your business. “You will need a full-time marketing person to create interest and links for your business. Anyone can work directly with Google, but you need someone managing your account internally.”
The presentation was unusual as Bohn was in a car wreck just outside of Waco on Thursday morning as he started his trip to Wichita Falls. He set up a remote wi-fi viewing presentation with the help of Baylor University and made his presentation to the membership.
