Spring is upon us!
I have so many things to tell you about this month! Old House New House Home Show attendance was INCREDIBLE and a sure sign of pent up demand--they're all ready for action!
First, our back cover is available! For the first time in 4 years, our most prime piece of real estate is open. As most of you know, our back cover sponsor, Milgard Windows & Doors has pulled all production out of the Chicago market. This means that you could take over the best spot in the magazine, The Back Cover! Improve the visibility of your company by being the first company to be seen at our 800+ distribution locations plus the redistribution at the biggest spring & fall home shows. You can have 1000 copies every month for canvassing or to use for your own marketing game plan.
Second, I'm very excited about our upcoming Networking Party with Floor & Decor Outlets in Lombard on Wednesday, March 7! Check out all the details below--food, fellow home improvement companies to mingle with and it's FREE!! We'll be talking about the best way to improve your Google rankings, social media tips and any other issues you've been having as you navigate this ever-changing frontier of marketing and self-promotion. Bring your challenges and pick some brains!
Third, NARI Vendors Night is Tuesday, March 20th and it's open to non-members! If you'd like to attend, it's only $20 which includes a CEU class, buffet dinner, two hours of open bar (4-6pm) and the opportunity to connect with vendors, contractors and service folks.
Fourth, don't forget to enter our Best Before/After Projects contest! See all the details below.
Deadline for the April Landscape & Outdoor Living planner issue is next Tuesday, February 28. Second most popular issue of the year! The March issue hits the streets this Thursday and it is GORGEOUS! I anticipate the same greedy consumption from Chicagoland homeowners as last year as they suck up all the information and inspiration we put between our two covers for this upcoming April Issue. Don't miss out on your chance to reach your next set of new 'best customers'--sponsor an ad in Chicago Home Improvement now!
