Countdown to High Point Market
It seems like we end one Market and are already preparing for another. With High Point happening soon, we are more than ready to say hello, talk websites, digital marketing, local SEO, and help you make the most of your 2018 business plan.
Digital Marketing from MicroD at Market
While we aren’t launching any new products this Market, we are launching a new set of MicroD staffers! After the January 2018 acquisition of a Charlotte, North Carolina based, award-winning digital marketing firm, we’ve increased our ranks of online experts and can’t wait to introduce them to the fabulous Home Furnishings Industry and (for many of them) their first Market!
This talented team, combined with our seasoned veterans will be on-site at High Point Market to help you with your on-site (like how we did that?) SEO, digital marketing, and overall web questions.
MicroD and Your Manufacturers
In addition to introducing new staff and meeting with our retailer clients, we’re also in town to visit with our many manufacturer partners. At the time this article is being written, our team is scheduling appointments with over 80 manufacturing companies. We are committed to maintaining the highest quality product catalog data and use our time at Market to track down the info we need.
And if you’re a manufacturer reading this, get your calendars ready – we’ll be calling you soon!
Augmented Reality at High Point Market
Unless you’ve been under a rock, you’ve seen an increase in articles about Augmented Reality in the furniture industry. More manufacturers are adopting this innovative technology fast. For MicroD’s clients, that is no different. Over the last year, we’ve enhanced the 3D solutions in our product offering and we’ve taken the industry in new directions with 3D and Augmented Reality. Our last reminder for all things High Point is the seminar we’re hosting on Augmented Reality.
If you remember last October, we had the extremely realistic (and slightly scary) virtual reality experience. Well, this Market we’ll be carrying on the idea with a presentation on Augmented Reality (AR) and how it can impact your business, sales, and customer engagement. With 60% of web users interested in shopping furniture with Augmented Reality, expectations for retailer websites is high! Join us on Saturday, April 14th at 10:30 AM in the Retailer Resource Center, Plaza Suites to get the facts and get your questions answered!
We’re taking all of the big news around the industry and using our expertise to give you one-of-a-kind email newsletters each week. MicroD is launching a brand new Insights newsletter for those who want to learn about the future of our industry, trends happening today, and some fun facts that will make your head spin.
