How do you show America what construction is all about?
Start with social media! Your company can add to the conversation that’s already happening through a variety of social media outlets. Even if your company doesn’t have an account, you can be certain a majority of those who work for you are on social sites.
Get involved by creating a social media account or actively use your current one to post all of the amazing things happening at your company. Include the #ibuildamerica hashtag on any post so we can share it across a larger audience. This will help your company get the exposure it deserves.
Share things like:
Project photos or videos • News about your company • Awards you’ve won • Project updates • People who work for you • New equipment or technology you’re using • Fun facts about your company • Company activities, picnics, retreats, and culture
How does posting on social media help your company?
• Your company has free exposure to a larger audience.
• You can market your company to potential customers in real time.
• You will attract and recruit talent into your company.
• Your employees can engage with your company and share what they do with friends and family.
How does posting on social media help construction and the I Build America movement?
• It unifies the various construction voices into one conversation. There’s power in numbers.
• Through a constant stream of photos and videos, you allow America to get a glimpse into construction they’ve never had. With understanding comes appreciation.
• Knowledge is power. The more educated the public is regarding every aspect of construction, the more the industry can begin to see and appreciate positive changes.
