    I will be broadcasting a Build-a-pond seminar today that I will be hosting. The class will run from 8am to 5pm (EST). I encourage you to check it out at some point if you can.

    The Website is http://statelinelandscaping.com/webcam where you can see a snapshot. There is a link below the picture that will pop up a new blank window that will refresh automatically.

    Has anyone ever done something like this to stir up some interest in your customer base? I communicate my invoices, estimates, etc with 90% of my customers via e-mail. I'm curious to find out if I can get enough of them to check in for 5 minutes while theyre at work and generate some possible leads to sell more ponds and pondless'

    Cool deal. I would like to learn more about ponds selling care etc. Not a whole lot of that around here. I did sell Koi and various gold fish when I had the pet store.

    The camera is online, I will be repositioning it in a few minutes to get a greater angle. Please excuse the poor quality, its obviously not the same as a 4mega pixel camera.

    Have a great day, thanks for watching.

    As of 5:15 we had over 100 visitors watch us sweat. The job is 90% done, just some final touching up which I wanted to do on my own anyway. I'll upload some pictures off the digital camera later this evening.

    You're very welcome Jodi, I'm surprised there weren't more comments, I guess most couldn't watch it since they had to work... oh well. It's the thought that counts, I have plenty of pictures from the digital camera to upload tonight or tomorrow.

    I will certainly keep you in mind if I do another broadcast. It was a pretty successful idea, while I didn't sell any directly from the day of the broadcast I certainly peeked a few peoples interests in ponds and pondlesses. My supplier also liked the idea and he is the one that really puts on the classes, so I'm sure there is a possibility of broadcasting another event. hopefully with a much better quality picture this time.
