Show Notes

We take a look at digital marketing, social media and branding for integration businesses in the company of self-confessed social media junkie, Ben Davies from Inspire AV, and Nicola Fulstow of CEDIA-award winning integrator, SONA. How should integrators present themselves to customers? What social media channels work best? Is it all digital these days? Or, is there a place for old school marketing tactics? We also take a look at the related topic of how integrators use social media when they're called in for upgrade work on another integrator’s project. And, we find out more than we possibly ever wanted to know about Ben Davies in our Hot Seat slot. What exactly does he have in common with Breaking Bad star, Aaron Paul? Make sure you also listen out for your third and final chance to enter our competition to win a Sony Home Cinema Projector, retailing at £5,000, from podcast supporter, AWE. This episode is brought to you from the Colony Club in Wilmslow and includes a few Joy Divison references for the die-hard Factory Records fans in the industry (Jeff is one of them).

Lighting, Awards and Experience Centres

We examine the big issue of lighting in the company of Homeplay’s Managing Director, James Ratcliffe, alongside Nic Black, Principal of The Pyramid Group. We ask how integrators can bring lighting design and lighting control into their business. What's involved and how will embracing lighting change your business offering for the better? As the CEDIA Awards open for entry, we also talk to James and Nic about taking part in Award schemes. What does it take to win an Award and is it worth all the effort? The episode is recorded in one of the industry’s newest showroom spaces, the Homeplay Experience Centre in Sunbury-on-Thames, Surrey. James tells us about the Experience Centre, explaining how it came about, how the project evolved and, now it's open, how it's working. We're very excited to launch a new, in fact, our first competition.
