“Dominate your Local Market!”
by Bob Stovall and L.A. ‘Tony’ Kovach
It’s time to upgrade your communities marketing strategies. What worked in the past may not be what works now or in the future. Make sure your online marketing dollars are working for you. The bottom line is that if one or more of your strategies is not performing up to your expectations, you may need to change your thinking.

There’s still time to get to Tunica and attend these workshops. It would certainly be worth the investment of your time. So if you can, get on the road to Tunica this week, attend theses workshops and come visit us at the booth on the show floor.

If you can’t make it to Tunica, we’ll also be presenting the “Dominate Your Local Market” workshop at the MHI Congress & Expo in Las Vegas in late April and at the Great Southwest Home Show in Tulsa, OK.
