    40. Getting Discovered on Google (feat. Spencer Powell)

    40. Getting Discovered on Google (feat. Spencer Powell)

    We don't know many people that enjoy putting together a company website. It can be a challenge getting the team on the same page so you can create something that will actually generate sales. 

    That's where Spencer Powell comes in. He specializes in helping Construction Companies grow their online presence so they can close more sales and build relationships with their customers. A big factor in this conversation is your SEO (Search Engine Optimization). Spencer educates us on building our SEO so that we come up in search results when people are looking for someone like us. 

    SEO is a great thing to have a basic understanding of as a business owner, of course you don't have to be an expert, but at least having a foundation to work off of is an advantage!

    39. The Woodwright Speaks (feat. Roy Underhill)

    We are joined by a PBS legend this week!

    Roy Underhill has been the host of the Woodwright’s Shop for almost four decades and has been an inspiration to many craftsmen throughout the construction industry. Eddie and Tyler were giddy to have him come on the show and talk about the way things used to be done and why we should be proud of our heritage as builders.

    Make sure you stick around until the end. Roy absolutely kills the answer to our megaphone question. We came out of this interview with inspiration and a renewed sense of purpose.

    What comes first, the Lego bricks or the Lego master? 

    The modular construction movement is trying to figure out this very same issue. What comes first, is it the modules or the modular design? Construction already uses modular or unitized building materials as its basis for the design. Whether you are dealing with a literal brick, lumber, plywood, or piping we use predictable sizes and shapes that complement each other and fit together well. 

    The big question is, how do we encourage more companies to go into modular building components?

    Eddie and Tyler dive into an interesting discussion this week based around a blog post Eddie has been working on.
