Florida Tow Show 2018 Educational Seminars
It can be difficult to find valuable seminars geared directly toward tow operators, especially when you think about the vast array of knowledge needed to successfully run a towing company. Fortunately, the 2018 Florida Tow Show features several educational opportunities covering a wide variety of topics, including dispatching resources, employee management, hosting driver safety meetings, and online marketing tools.
Lift Marketing Group’s Dennis Wencel and Kevin McMillan will educate towers on the latest Google trends and updates on Saturday at 10am in the Azalea Room. In “Keeping Pace with Google Changes,” Dennis will explain why Google’s ever-changing algorithm requires tow companies to constantly update their website, PPC advertising, review strategy, and social media profiles. He’ll share what Google is looking for this year to drive more cash calls to your business.
