Decorative Concrete Engravers Do It Groovy notes that ConcreteDust has reviewed a blog post from Groov-E-News/Engrave-A-Crete entitled  Jim Peterson of asks, “Where Are We Now?”

Where we are is this — we are bogged in an uninviting economy for new construction, but a sweet spot for remodeling.

DCEYIG mentions that ConcreteDust suggests ways that decorative concrete engravers can work to reach the end user market.   You know ConcreteDust — she’s going to say what she thinks.


Decorative Concrete Engravers Do It Groovy writes about a post at ConcreteDust recommending a third post at Groov-E-News/Engrave-A-Crete entitled “Seven Reasons to Farm the Farmers’ Market for Decorative Concrete“.

There is not always a connection between you and larger trade shows in your service area.  That doesn’t mean you have to remain the ‘stealth’ decorative concrete engraver.   You can have a mini-trade show at the local farmers’ market and still reach people.  People who may attend the next trade show where you have a booth and who will recognize you.  It’s all about networking and building trust.  People want to know the people they work with more than they will admit.

Decorative Concrete Engravers Do It Groovy tells us of a new post at Concrete Dust, entitled, Strike Up the Band And Get Your Decorative Concrete Biz in the Parade, talks about a post over at Groov-E-News entitled, Decorative Concrete Engraving and the 4th of July

Networking in the neighborhood is the main goal for your business when watching for events in which to participate. However, the secondary goal is the warm and fuzzy experience of helping in the community.

Decorative Concrete Engravers Do It Groovy found a post at Concrete Dust referring to an article at Groov-E-News about two Missouri businesses working out a deal on decorative concrete engraving.

One company needed their floors redone.  As a concrete production company, doing something with the concrete floors in the building seemed more appropriate than carpet or tile.  The other company is a decorative concrete engraving business.  The second company created beauty for the first and also gets to use the floors as show pieces for their future customers.

Decorative Concrete Engravers Do It Groovy wrote about Concrete Dust and Groov-E-News observations for the accomplishments of Blastin’ Betty.

Betty is the star of the Blast Force™ Systems process for blasting with steel shot in concrete prep. or in actual engraving.  Groov-E-News has been running a survey among readers to learn their wishes for something that Betty would take off.  So far, she’s handled old, hard epoxy, old gray paint, mystery substance, carpet glue.  Someone has asked for a run at overlay material.

Decorative Concrete Engravers Do It Groovy wrote about a post in Concrete Dust discussing information at Groov-E-News about Advanced Concrete Staining.

David Larson, owner, used the Texas Star pattern in a flagstone pattern to transform an ugly concrete patch into art.

Decorative Concrete Engravers Do it Groovy wrote that  Concrete Dust posted opinion about  a post at Groov-E-News mentioning several decorative concrete engravers who use Facebook successfully and vigorously to market their businesses and interact with customers.

The relationship that is akin to friendship from that interaction is the stuff that business depth is built on.  We’re all proud for the  one-time customer , but developing a communicating relationship with as many as possible is terrific.
