As someone in the construction industry, how do you begin to tell your story? Join host Todd and guest Katlyn Slocum as they discuss best strategies for getting “the word” out about your company, the difference between “old school” and “new school” marketing tactics, and how to know you’re being effective at communicating with your target audience.

- I know I bring up storytelling all the time but it is so important. I loved the connection that Katlyn made today with the inherent relational side of construction and storytelling. It is spot on. Storytelling true is the bridge to scaling your company from the old school to the new school.
- In your marketing, don’t try to be all things to all people. When you do, you are actually diluting your messaging and creating confusion for the very audience that you are trying to convert. Focus your message around your why.
- Think of your website as a conversation. You want to keep visitors engaged to explore more and curious enough to raise their hand to build the relationship further.
