Perusing the client list of Automation Creations, Inc. (ACI), I had a series of wonderful "It's still who you know" moments when I read Automation Creations's description of the redesign of the Premier web site.
I first met John Phillips, President of Premier Transfer and Storage, when I began helping to organize the New River Valley Triathlon. When I mentioned the triathlon to others, they urged, "Ask John Phillips! He'll do it!" I asked. John answered. When the triathlon is a go, I'll let him know when I see him at The Weight Club where I discovered we both train with Don Belote.
The BlacksburgLodging site, also designed by Automation Creations, features Sponsored Links, the first three of which are "Find a Home | Plan your Move | Connect with Businesses." "Find a Home" leads to Coldwell Banker Townside, "Plan Your Move" leads to Premier Transfer and Storage, and "Connect with Businesses" leads to, yep, our Handshake App! BlacksburgLodging also features the events calendar NextThreeDays by Automation Creations.
Talk about connectedness!
And how about this scenario:
A married couple who met at Virginia Tech, determined to join fellow Hokie football fans after Virginia Tech's close game with Boise State, use their "It's who you know connections" to get tickets to the next home game in Blacksburg, Virginia.
They 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!
It could happen!
We're all shaking hands together, and we are just one subset of the handshakes that make business happen.
Automation Creations, Inc., Coldwell Banker Townside, REALTORS(R), and BlacksburgLodging are clients of Handshake Media, Incorporated's social media services. Premier Transfer and Storage is not a client of Handshake's social media services because Jaime Clark is on the job for Premier! If Premier wants a corporate mobile app, however, we would certainly welcome them as a client!
