In the Know

February 18th, 2010 | Category: From the Daily Editor

“What’s new?” It’s a phrase that, at one point in time, we would often say to friends, colleagues and others we know, but with whom we have perhaps lost touch. Today, however, in this age of devices such as i-Phone and Blackberries and social media websites such as Face Book, Linked in and Twitter, falling out of touch with someone is increasingly unlikely. Face Book “friend requests” pop up right on our Blackberries and i-phones, as do Linked in invitations and all the latest “tweets” from Twitter. It’s easier than ever, it seems, to stay connected and in the know.

And social media sites are also a great way to stay informed about the latest news and happenings in the business world, including the window film industry. In fact, WINDOW FILM magazine has also just jumped on the social media bandwagon and is now on Twitter. We’ll be updating regularly … or, rather, we’ll be “tweeting” regularly with the latest news, headlines, reports from industry events and much more. Check us out at http://www.twitter.com/windowfilmmag and become one of our followers to become among the first to know “what’s new” in the film industry.

But our Twitter site is not all that’s new with WINDOW FILM magazine. Starting with the May-June issue we will be including a new column: Ask the Expert. This new editorial section will be written by Donna Wells, an expert in window film sales, consulting and marketing, who will address your top questions and concerns in each of her columns. Got a question? Then we have the answers. Maybe you’re looking to expand your business to include new products or services and you’re just not sure the best path to take. Maybe you want to enter new markets or begin working with architects. We can help. Simply send me an e-mail to erogers@glass.com with your questions and we will forward them on to Donna. Prefer to remain anonymous? No problem. Just let us know and we will make sure your name and company name are withheld.

Enjoy these new features and, as always, your ideas, questions and concerns are important to us, so feel free to post your comments in the spaces below.
