    for myself as an HVAC contractor. At this time last year I was struggling and asked for some SEO assistance. A few folks here were very helpful and I found a web guy in my BNI group (which I joined about the same time) who got me to the top of the Google search within a few weeks.

    I now have 2 trucks on the road and one full time employee. We are looking to add another installer in late April or early May.

    Last night my CPA called to congratulate me on being nominated in our local newspaper (covers all of the Treasure Coast) as 2015's Treasure Coast Favorite AC Service company. I thought he was screwing with me but in fact I am in the running with three other companies, which are the three biggest companies in the county.

    Through social media and the network groups I'm in, I've managed to pass the other three in votes so far.

    I don't think they care where you're from so if you'd like, give us a vote. Hit the link and scroll down to the category.

    I am pretty excited. This would be a major win for my company and its growth and stature among the counties residents.

    Yes, it's in his profile.

    I voted too!

    It's nice to be able to vote on something and not have to join FacePalm or other social media circle-jerks that harvest your personal information for their gain.

    Actually, I voted for Dickie too. You never know when we might need a good HVAC guy to take care of our Florida houses...and the BBQ lunch is on me.

    You're just down the road from me, Dickie. Had no idea. I'm in Space Coast.

    Congratulations on the upturn in business! You got my vote.

    Done. Though I'm still not happy that Ohio is out of your service area.
