NADRA HIGHLIGHTS

Spring Home Shows and motivated buyers
NADRA Blog
Last weekend was a beautiful one in Atlanta, Georgia for the Spring Home Shows at Cobb Galleria. By all accounts, it was the most successful Spring Home Shows ever, with record attendance and more vendors present than ever before. It certainly did not hurt that the weather was perfect. Sunny, warm, and inviting, when the weather is great, people start thinking about being outside. When they do, they turn their attention to those projects they have been dreaming about all winter.

USA Today

The Internet was in its infancy, and a small business like A Carousel for Missoula didn't have to worry about how it showed up in search engines and social media. Now, if a small business isn't found when a customer searches on the map of their mobile phone or through the Web, they may never be discovered at all.
