  2. Brad Fowler says: Canton, MI- In order to compete in a global construction business environment, today’s construction companies must incorporate EMarketing concepts that impact business partner decisions. This is the primary focus of Construction EMarketing, an EMarketing service provider established to help construction companies achieve maximum online marketing exposure in cyberspace. In fact, as sole proprietor, I established Construction EMarketing with hopes of becoming a corner stone for construction companies to partner with, in their online marketing efforts. This is a definite plus for the construction industry. After all, Construction EMarketing offers superior EMarketing concepts that boost Web site traffic, increase viewer feedback, and connect construction companies with global databases encapsulated in contract bidding platforms. After all, the resources Construction EMarketing offers delivers unlimited global data defined by today’s EMarketing industry, who currently controls how E-businesses build bridges with global business partners. Take for instance, some of the innovative EMarketing strategies offered by Construction EMarketing, includes: defining keywords that drive traffic to a construction E-business Web site; gaining better ranking in international search engines as well as evaluating the business online strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats in correlation with competitors. Additionally, Construction EMarketing provides legal research on today’s EMarketing laws, which now play an key role in Internet marketing practices. In fact, in 2014, Canada enacted a new law disenabling online marketers from sending unsolicited marketing email messages to Canadian residents without permission. To learn more about this international EMarketing service provider that gets results, contact Construction EMarketing today. In addition, please be sure to view the company website and video files In the meantime, I’m interested in being a guest on your show and discussing this new business service along with my new book titled Construction EMarketing: Strategic EMarketing Plans, which is now available on If interested in having me on your show, please call me at 734-680-5370 or send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you. Brad Fowler, C.P.

The Power of Digital Storytelling for the Social Good


My guest this week is Tania Multry who left her secure corporate career to pursue her dream of doing something that would help the world. It was from this idea that she founded DDx Media. The company’s first initiative was developing edRover, a mobile app that helps families to direct donations from local businesses to a school of their choice. edRover was recognized by AT&T as the Best Application of 2011 in the category of Social Good. Impressed by the edRover concept and Tania’s contest pitch, AT&T asked her to join the AT&T Developers Advisory Council. She also won Microsoft Fastpitch Competition and was among a few developers selected to attend Microsoft Mobile Acceleration Week. Recently, she published her first book, "The Cause: The Power of Digital Storytelling for Social Good". 

Join me as I ask Tania to share her story and the importance of giving back.
