Word has it that work is picking up (although other news says it's not). Make sure you're positioned to grab work as it becomes available!
That's where social media for contractors comes in... It'll help you to kick your competitors' collective butts! ;)

If you haven't yet started promoting your business on the various social networks you're leaving money on the table. If you're using social media but haven't received any training or help with it then again you're leaving money on the table.
One of the articles I included in the free gift for all of my subscribers, written by Darren Slaughter, is about how to market your business.
I've rounded up a couple intriguing opportunities for you in regard to marketing your construction business (and related industries) through your LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ accounts.
I've heard it said often that Facebook is for personal and LinkedIn is for business. Personally I think they can all be used to advance your business to the next level, and then the next and the next.
And there are plenty of contractors using social media for their business that must agree because they're succeeding at it every day.
So without further ado…
This quick video explains why this often overlooked social networking site is delivering double the results over every other site for construction professionals and how you can easily do the same thing.
Travis Bontrager, who is an expert when it comes to LinkedIn, put it together and I know it'll add value to your business. Actually, after watching this I realized I need to step up my own efforts on LinkedIn ASAP!
Please take my word for it and click the link above to watch it now!

Another area that I need to step it up on!

The biggest mistake marketers make with Twitter is not realizing its full potential as a way to bring in more revenue. In fact, 42% of companies have acquired at least one customer through Twitter.
This free downloadable eBook will teach you all about Twitter and Vine (Vine is Twitter's new mobile video app - everybody's coming out with apps these days!).
