The Louisville Manufactured Housing Show is a GO!

October 28th, 2010 2 comments

Kentucky Fair & Exposition Center, Louisville, KYThe 2011 Louisville Manufactured Housing Show has been confirmed for January 13 & 14, 2011 at the Kentucky Fair & Exposition Center in Louisville, KY. This a welcome development for manufacturers, retailers, community owners, suppliers and everyone else connected to the industry.

Not only is the Louisville Manufactured Housing Show to be held at a very convenient time and place, it symbolizes the turn-around that the industry is currently experiencing and that MHMSM.com, with the help and support of everyone involved in manufactured housing, has been working for since our inception.

I’d like to express my gratitude to Dennis Hill at ShowWays and the member associations of the Midwest Manufactured Housing Federation (MMHF) – Kentucky Manufactured Housing Institute, Illinois Manufactured Housing Association, Indiana Manufactured Housing Association Michgan Manufactured Housing Association and Ohio Manufactured Housing Association – for making the resurrection of this venerable show possible. Now it’s up to all of us to ensure its success.

The Louisville Manufactured Housing Show was first conducted over fifty years ago and had an unbroken string of success until market conditions forced the cancellation of the 2010 show. We are very happy to see it back and hope that this show is just the beginning of an even longer unbroken run to come. If everyone from exhibitors to attendees make just a small extra effort to make the 2011 show a success, we can help ensure its current and future success.

No matter where you are, please make an effort to attend the 2011 Louisville Manufactured Housing Show and send a clear signal to the markets, the nation and the world that America’s affordable housing choice is back and better than ever.

Social Networking ripples can cause much bigger effects for manufactured housing

October 21st, 2010 1 comment

I live in Danville, Kentucky – a town of about 15,000 that has been named “one of America’s Best Small Towns.” As charming as our little town is, every so often a trip to the “big city” is in order. What this has to do with manufactured, or any factory-built housing will become apparent. This past Sunday was my wife’s birthday. We decided to go for dinner at Sutton’s Italian Restaurant in Lexington, KY. Sutton’s is a client of mine (we did their website) and this was their new location. I really like to keep up with what my client’s are doing as having knowledge of their operations helps me do a better job of marketing for them.

We ordered some wine, recommended by owner Gordon Lewis, a locally produced Merlot from Jean Farris Wineries. Notice how the locally-sourced product was the one recommended. It was a very good wine, the best Merlot I have ever had – and I’m NOT a big Merlot fan normally.

So far, so good. It’s the next succession of events that I wanted to point out. We ordered an appetizer. One of our favorites in Italian restaurants is calamari with marinara sauce, so we decided to go for that. Well, the calamari was super! It mixed in was a special treat. Banana peppers (peperoncini) which had been sliced into rings like the calamari and fried along with them. Exceptional.

So I took out my iPhone and photographed our half-finished plate and posted it on Facebook. Within minutes, a friend who didn’t know of the restaurant’s new location asked me where they were.

He’ll be checking out the new location shortly with his entire family. Now, my question is… how much benefit will Sutton’s receive from a picture, a caption and about a minute that it took me to post it to Facebook? Five people will eat there as a direct result. How many more read the post, now know the new location and will find their way there over the next few weeks?

And what’s it worth if they like it, return and tell their friends?

Even if the restaurant has no idea where those customers originated, they benefit from that small bit of social networking. It happens that Sutton’s has a Facebook page of their own, so those reading my post can easily find them on Facebook. And or course, their Facebook page has a link to their website.

So round and round it goes, a small ripple in the pond of information creates a much larger result. Sutton’s pays their employees who then spend the money in the local economy and the additive value of a dollar spent adds to Lexington’s GDP.

More ripples in our various ponds are what will get the economy moving again on a local, national and global basis. It’s not hard. Go make a ripple today, even a small one. It will will multiply as the circle widens.

And don’t forget to post every new thing your business does on your website, your blog, your Facebook page, your LinkedIn status and tweet it on Twitter to boot. Have a new home on your lot or in your community? Install a new home? Performed some community service? Hire a new sales person, customer service rep or installer. Each of those is a small stone causing a small ripple that grows and grows and…
