BlacksburgLodging Captured on Camera

In Premier Transfer and Storage Starts the Connections, we traced the amazing series of "It's still who you know" connections that make great business happen.  We imagined this scenario:

They [visitors to Blacksburg, Virginia] book their hotel in the home of the Hokies through BlacksburgLodging, love the entire pre-game, game, and post-game experience, "find their fun" through NextThreeDays, and just know they have to move back to Blacksburg.  They call Nancy Phillips of Coldwell Banker Townside, REALTORS to help them find and buy a house, and use Premier Transfer and Storage to move their furniture into their new home.  Wanting to connect their companies with other companies to create "it's who you know" ASAP, they buy Handshake Apps of their own to showcase their companies' members.  Then they want to join all the cool companies with site designs by ACI!

For great business to happen, no imagination is necessary, however.  Jaime Clark of Premier Transfer and Storage noted in her comment on the post which featured Automation Creations's redesign of the Premier site:

We have had great success with the new website to date, including:

  • An increase of over 250% in customer-submitted online inquires compared to the same period last year with our old website.
  • Booked appointments for in-home estimates generated from Premier’s new website have increased over 330% compared to the same period last year.
  • We have booked appointments for in-home estimates directly through Premier’s new online support chat feature.

The connections get even better.

Fantasy football software pcDrafter, a product of Automation Creations, was featured on the WDBJ7 television channel's news show.  We quickly captured this image from the video interview of Henry Bass, founder of Automation Creations, who displayed some of his company's projects.  Check out the screen on the left!

  1. I’ll admit, it was pretty exciting when, as I watched the news story about pcDrafter, Bob Grebe delivered narrative on Automation Creations and the video included a pan of Henry’s workstation with one of his monitors displaying Blacksburg Lodging! I thoroughly enjoyed working with the folks at Automation Creations and I love having their NextThreeDays event calendar on my site. Thanks for sharing that flash on the screen with the rest of the world!

  2. And I’ll admit that I felt like the friend of rock stars when I saw both ACI and Blacksburg Lodging on TV! “I know them!” It was a GREAT feeling!
