Helping Out My Family’s Business

Burt: Slow down there Jimmy. Do you even know what the hell you are doing?
Virginia: Of course he knows what he’s doing Burt. It’s a computer, not a condom. –Raising Hope

My parents have been going through a little bit of a hard time due to this recession. I’ve been trying to find ways to help my Pops increase business for his garage door installation service and construction company. Before I started helping, he was just advertising in the yellow pages and the newspaper. I added him to yelp and got his name out there a little bit more on search engines. Eventually I’d like to make him a website and really bring their business into the modern world.

I also think he’d really benefit from going to a trade show. It would be so cool to see him set up a booth and get his name out there for everyone to see. He could even put up a printed logo canopy. He wouldn’t just have to use it for the trade show, but it’d also be great for outdoor events.

He could also get logo mats that he could put out in front of his booth to really draw people in.
Used in trade shows, trade show flooring comes in a variety of styles and shapes. There is even a line of printed flooring, so that end users can add a logo or message to the flooring. Trade show carpet is also available for exhibitors and adds a nice comfortable touch to any exhibit. I’d like to see people lining up on that trade show flooring and trade show carpet ready to sign up for his services. He told me that he’s already getting a bit more business now that people can find his info online. Here’s hoping things pick up for them. I hate to see my family struggle.
