If you're not in the habit of photographing your work, you should be! There's nothing more beautiful than a perfectly installed BIBS wall. We'd like to showcase your work on our web site and in our social media. Do you have any interesting projects you've tackled? Tight spaces?
Send us your photos and we'll help promote your business with them. We are particularly interested in specialty applications and tricky spots; this is where BIBS really shines.
Do you offer thermal imaging services? We'd also like to see what you're doing with BIBS to paint a prettier thermal image.
These do not have to be professional-grade photos. Shoot a few and email them to email@example.com.
You could also text them to BIBCA at 605-949-2427. Check out the gallery of photos from Intermountain West Insulation.
Still not sure about this deal? It's easy; all our members are eligible to eliminate the social media puzzle from your to do list. Common questions:
1. How does it work? You give us permission to set up social media for you, and you see increased business.
2. I don't have time for this!? We know, that's why we're doing it for you.
3. What about keeping it updated? We'll do that too. We will post updates to your Facebook page and Twitter feed 2x/week.
4. What if I am not a member next year? The sites remain, but ongoing posting and updates would be your responsibility.
5. What's the cost? $50 PER YEAR for premium members, $!00 for regular members.
6. How long does it take? We can typically have you set up within a day.
7. What if I don't have a web site? We will set one up for you FREE.
8. What if I don't even have an email address? We will set one up for you, but we will not check your email for you!
9. If you set it up, can I still make postings too? Yes. But when you don't have time, you'll know it's being taken care of by us too.
10. I offer a lot of products, not just BIBS. What about that? 90% of our members offer multiple products and services. If you are a member, we will make our regular building-science and energy efficiency postings. If you want to promote gutters, fireplaces, foam insulation - you can make those additional postings with no trouble. We'll even show you how.
11. My customers don't care about social media, right? Wrong.
12. I'm an Affiliate member, am I still eligible to have you set this up for me? Yes, but the cost is $200 instead of $100.
13. Can I talk to a current member who is participating? Absolutely. Call the office and we'll connect you with a board member who is utilizing this service.
14. What do the postings look like? Check out Henges Insulation Facebook page as an example.
15. Sign me up! Call 605-949-2427 and you'll be an internet sensation in one day!

Manufacturer warranties require proper installation to be valid. How do you prove proper installation of an insulation job? When it's BIBS® you do a density check, but DON'T STOP THERE!

We'll send 250 stickers to you for $50 (including shipping) regardless of whether you're a premium member or not. Call the BIBCA office to have your stickers shipped out today.
Got a good story to share on the value of these stickers? Let's hear it!

The BIBCA PR/Marketing committee designed and approved a way for all BIBS dealers to tackle the dreaded, neglected social media efforts for their own companies. We've launched the most generous member service in our 30-year history, and dealers are jumping on board with this one.
We will set up, manage, and maintain a social network for you including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+ and YouTube at the cost of only
$50 for the year - Gold and Platinum members
$100 for the year - Silver members
This includes 2x/week updates to your sites, and zero hassles for you. You do not have to understand it, or even pay attention to it. All you have to do is enjoy the increased visibility it brings your company, and reap the rewards.
If you already have media tools set up, but nobody is making updates, that's ok. We will work with what you already have set up and make the weekly updates.
How is this possible? It seems too good to be true? This is only possible because of our Industry Partners; Service Partners, Johns Manville, CertainTeed, and Knauf Insulation. They have sponsored the cost of the program to help you grow your company.
Call Kristin at 605-949-2427 with any questions, or email email@example.com

Didn't make it to NAHB's big event this year?
BIBCA was there, with a better display than ever! Thanks to the hard work of Mike Hobson, who constructed and shipped the exhibit, BIBS was promoted very effectively promoted at the largest annual light construction show in the world.
Special thanks also to BIBCA President Brian Blad, Susan Rocker and Jesse Aragon for helping handle booth traffic. Hundreds of leads were collected, and will result in increased business for our licensed contractors.

For a chance at a free trip to IBS, let BIBCA know if you are interested in manning the booth next year in Orlando.
It's trade show season again, and BIBCA is busy representing the Blow In Blanket System at the International Builders Show, as well as other trade shows around the country. A few reminders about how to make the most of your BIBCA membership at trade shows in 2006:
Exhibit Booth: BIBCA has two exhibit booths available for your use. These top of the line exhibit displays come complete with backdrop, graphics and lighting to give you a very professional look at your local trade shows. We have a large, 8x10 exhibit that stands on the floor behind a table, and also a smaller exhibit that sits talbe top. These displays are worth thousands of dollars, but are free for your use as a member of the Association. You are only responsible to pay the shipping (usually between $50 and $120 each way), take good care of them, and return them to the office. They book up fast, so be sure to call well in advance - (303) 433-2963 to reserve one for your local show.
Literature: BIBCA has an assortment of very nice, printed brochures for you to use at trade shows and to keep on hand in your office. They are available at our printing cost and can be viewed at http://www.bibca.org/?page=LiteratureLibrary. We also have video tapes, presentation CDs and DVDs to play on a TV or Laptop at shows.
Business Cards: When BIBCA exhibits at a large trade show, we take along your business cards. If you have not already done so, please forward 100 of your business cards to the BIBCA office - we will distribute them to customers from your region who visit our display at national shows.
Check your listing on our contractor's map at http://www.bibca.org/?content=directory&dirmode=map&moduleID=directory2. If you are not listed, check to be sure your dues are paid. 2005 members are currently listed, and we regret that on February first, 2006 unpaid members will be removed from the map.
