Earn Money Back

Earn Money Back

What would you think if you could get a rebate for your loyalty to many of the nation’s leading housing industry Manufacturers? Well, now you can regardless of your volume!

The JCBIA is happy to help promote the NCHBA Member Rebate Program, a free member benefit, aimed at increasing your bottom line. For the minimal effort of informing them about the products you use, and telling them when you close on a home or project, you’ll be putting money back in your pocket. When you participate in the NCHBA Member Rebate Program, every home you build can earn you rebate checks! Remember, both Builders AND Remodelers qualify for the NCHBA Member Rebate Program.

Over 70% of the Builders & Remodelers who participated last year received back in rebates more than they paid in annual dues to the Association!  Click Here to Read More!

The P&L of Meeting Sponsorship! by Rick Trader ProServices Specialist with Lowes

The P&L of Meeting Sponsorship! by Rick Trader ProServices Specialist with Lowes

P&L -- Profit and Loss.  Not every company may have a fancy spreadsheet to show their P&L for a year, but without question every company from the smallest sole proprietor to the largest multi-billion dollar commerce, reconciles its gain or loss as a reflection of the success of its business operations.  Every enterprise weighs investment against return -- how much "bang for my buck" will this job, or this advertising, or this piece of equipment, or this partnership bring to my bottom line?  However, while P&L's might show us part of the picture of the success or failure of a business, and while every business needs to turn a profit in order to survive, altruistically P&L goes much deeper than mere financial profit.

Trivia Night!

Trivia Night!

Its the 1st (hopefully annual) Trivia Night Fundraiser!  The members of the Johnston County Building Industry Association and the members of the Johnston County Association of Realtors want to join forces to raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project.  This is your opportunity to use all the knowledge you have swimming around in your head!!  Teams will place 1st, 2nd, 3rd.  HOWEVER - the Association that raises the LEAST amount of money will have to carry the "Brain Pill Dispenser" to all general membership meetings for the remainder of the year and offer all their members "brain pills" so they can prepare for the next challenge.....LOL!!!!  Team Registration is Open - please call or email Sherry.

Measureable Change by Joe Fox with Olde Town Supply Co.

Measureable Change by Joe Fox with Olde Town Supply Co.

2015 seems to have started strong with almost everyone I have spoken with in the building community. Jan/Feb business was better than past years by far when.....here goes Mother Nature with her humbling reminder of who is really the boss in wintertime! Two weeks of icy,cold,wet conditions rendered many job sites temporarily impassable. Historically we are done with most or all of our snow by the middle of March . Lets hope that she has finished our lesson early for this year and will allow Spring to take hold.
As you look at other markets, especially up north, it doesn't take long to realize how lucky we are to only lose a couple of weeks to winter weather.We measure our snowfall in inches....not feet!
Have a great year everyone.

Solving vs. Selling from Bill Smith with Stanley Martin Homes

Solving vs. Selling from Bill Smith with Stanley Martin Homes

STOP SELLING START SOLVING their problem!   Customers buy products or services to solve problems.  Sometimes it is a problem of having the blues or being depressed—so a Snickers Bar or a good cheeseburger will do. Other times, their couch is getting wet every time it rains because their roof leaks or their car keeps breaking down so they are late to work.  In each case, there is a problem to be fixed, which is driving or causing the need for a solution.Solve the problem, and you make a sale. If you approach “selling” with the perspective of “solving the customer’s problem” instead of “making a sale,” you’ll make more sales, have happier customers, and increase your referrals (free business). Just a friendly reminder:  smiling is the very best way to convey friendship and build rapport.

A Christmas Miracle

A Christmas Miracle

JCBIA and some association members perform a Christmas Miracle. In 25 days a "man cave" was built for a 14 year old by fighting Leukemia.  From start to finish, inside and out, everything was donated!  JCBIA members, neighbors, church members, and friends gave Colin Carberry a Christmas to remember.

If you would still like to help out this family, you can make a monetary donation to help out with incidentals.  Make checks payable to Colin Carberry Fund and send it to the JCBIA.
