Associates Today: Build Your Brand

Filed in Awards, Committees and Councils, Membership by on August 5, 2015 0 Comments

New Webinar Helps You Build a Robust Brand
Many Associate members with successful businesses will attest that their HBA has proved to be the best place to build brand awareness, launch a robust referral program, generate leads and garner a strong clientele.

Dennis Poppe, owner of Premiere Benefits Services, an insurance company in Issaquah, Wash., is one of those members. On Sept. 16 from 2-3 p.m. he will share the marketing practices and tools he has used to build 100% percent of his business within his HBA, the Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish County.

Association membership is what you make of it. Register today to learn how you can make your membership work to your advantage.
