NADRA HIGHLIGHTS

NADRA Atlanta Chapter Update — 'Speed Dating with Deck Builders!'
By: Keith Compton, NADRA Atlanta Chapter President
Our next meeting will be held on April 16, at the Ivey in Buckhead. I am hoping to put together a unique event. We are calling it "Speed Dating with Deck Builders." There will be an opportunity for vendors and dealers to buy time slots so they can present their new product offerings for 2013 to the key deck builder members of our chapter. I have already received a commitment from 10 of our deck builder members so it should be a very cost effective way to get your message out. Interested in learning more? Contact Keith today.

NADRA NJ Deck Awards Dinner
NADRA
On behalf of the New Jersey NADRA Board of Directors, I would like to thank everyone for coming out last night to support our deck builders at our NJ Deck Awards Dinner. We had a great turnout and a wonderful time! We would also like to thank Trex, AZEK, TimberTech, Windward Sales, Mid-State Lumber, FatsenMaster and Wolf for sponsoring this dinner. Without your support, we would not have been able to hold such a spectacular event. A special thank you goes out to the three judges, Jim O'Brien, Jeff Fleischer and Jack McNaboe for volunteering their time to meet and judge the entries. We would like to congratulate all of last night's award winners on their beautiful decks that will inspire us all.

Why small businesses need to have (and grow) an email contact list
NADRA
Right now, you already have an audience for your business. When you have events, people show up. When you hold a sale or introduce a new product, people are there to buy. And when you open your doors each morning, you know you won't be spending the day alone. Your phone rings, your website gets traffic and over time your business grows. But if you're not giving this audience a way to stay connected with you when they're away from your business — you're missing out on a valuable opportunity to build relationships with these customers and accelerate the growth your business can achieve by driving action around the things you're already doing.

***NADRA has partnered with Constant Contact to bring you the leading email marketing platform around today. As a member of NADRA, you receive 20 percent off. Not sure where to start? Call or email us anytime ... we will help you get started.

LEADERSHIP


7 steps to get publicity for your business
Entrepreneur
Just what is public relations? And how does it differ from advertising? Public relations is the opposite of advertising. In advertising, you pay to have your message placed in a newspaper, TV or radio spot. In public relations, the article that features your company is not paid for. The reporter, whether broadcast or print, writes about or films your company as a result of information he or she received and researched.
