Our industries thrive on personal interactions. While our team stepped seamlessly into this remote-only world the past couple of years, we have definitely missed in-person connections. It was great to be back together at NAHB IBS 2022 in Orlando earlier this month! There was a vibe of cautious relief as people relished the experience of seeing each other again, face-to-face. Not only did we get to see our industry partners and clients, but our team was also able to come together! Members of our account management, executive leadership, digital marketing and website design teams all attended the conference this year. We gained so much from our interactions with clients, colleagues, and friends, these three days of learning and sharing ideas were inspiring!
The Blue Tangerine booth at IBS provided us the opportunity to network with builders, potential partners, industry friends, and people from other industries. Absorbing that time together in person, we had great discussions about how to build and implement better websites, how to obtain better leads, and how to convert more of those leads into sales.
An added value to traveling to IBS is the opportunity to share our knowledge and experience. We were privileged to participate in three educational sessions at this year’s conference. Greg Bray collaborated on two online home buying panel discussions and Director of Strategy, Cabe Vinson, shared valuable information on local SEO search strategies.
Does Your Website Have a ‘Buy Now’ Button?
Greg joined Carol Morgan of Denim Marketing and Paul Gortzig from the Bokka Group for a lively discussion on the future of buying homes online. More than just slapping a button on your website, these three discussed the technology and business processes involved with the online home buying process. Sales, marketing, data, and technology all merge to provide home buyers the online experience they not only want but expect, from their new home buying journey.
Strategies & Success Secrets for Selling Homes Online
In a discussion between three friendly competing website development agency leaders, Greg joined Chip Johnson of Builder Designs and Dennis O’Neil of ONeil Interactive to share their thoughts on ways home builders can implement processes to aid in buying homes online and what it means to each of them. Different viewpoints with the same goal in mind: help builders understand the process and importance of implementing “buy online” options for potential buyers.
If you missed the session, or if you learned so much you just want to hear the information again, you’re in luck! We are hosting an encore webinar session on March 24th at 1:00 PM (EST). Moderated by Kevin Weitzel from Outhouse, this is sure to be a fun discussion you won’t want to miss. Register now to reserve your spot!
Discover Hidden Gems in Local SEO
Our Senior Strategist, Cabe Vinson, made his IBS debut with this popular topic. Cabe focused on 4 key areas for local SEO strategy: On-Page Optimization, Google My Business, Reviews, and Backlinks. If you’re looking for tips to gain traction in your local search rankings, this was the session to attend. Cabe packed so many helpful strategies into his presentation that everyone walked away with new ideas. Did you miss out on these gems? Don’t worry, if you’re looking for help in this area, we have a team of Home Builder SEO experts that would love to chat with you on how to improve your results.
We had a great time in Orlando, but we returned to work this week full of motivation and inspiration from all of the knowledge we gained and the people we met!
