ACCA Announces Marketing Alliance with Hudson, Ink
"ACCA is in the midst of a member renaissance," says Kevin Holland, Vice-President of Communications for the national contractor group. "By adding the marketing services of Hudson, Ink, we feel like we've stepped light years ahead in member benefits."
Hudson Ink is a provider of marketing services for contractors including Customer Retention newsletters, lead-generating Yellow Page ads and "turn-key" marketing packages.
"Some of Hudson Ink's custom services - such as copywriting - had gotten really expensive, mostly because of the results they got!" he laughed. "But this also meant that only the bigger-budget contractors were able to take advantage of their services. Now, ACCA members can get many of his products at a member discount. A few of his services are even free to members."
Hudson's private copywriting work is considered the most expensive in the industry at $2000 per page, but still maintains a 4-week backlog.
Yet Holland also noted that Hudson created a "new and exclusive" Customer Retention newsletter program just for ACCA members. "This is how a contractor can really stand apart from the competition. In my opinion, no one does this better than Hudson, Ink."
Members can go to www.acca.org for more info. They can also sign up for a free marketing newsletter for contractors by faxing their letterhead with the request to Hudson, Ink at 334-262-1115. Hudson spoke to record crowds at the ACCA National Conference and has already been signed up for next March's Conference in New Orleans.
"We're really excited about the possibilities of helping ACCA members market their companies better," remarked Holland. "Generating leads and having a professional image in the marketplace is where many contractors are weak, but by using these new services, they can really boost their marketing results."

New Marketing Alliance Announced for PHCC
PHCC president Jim Stack announced that PHCC has entered an agreement with Hudson, Ink to provide members with marketing services. Many services or discounts will be exclusive to PHCC members.
“We’ve known that marketing has been a sore spot for members. The availability of good solid marketing help was low, but vital for contracting success.” Stack continued, “Plumbing contractors are always hearing, ‘Market your companies better’ but there was little strategy and few tools to help them do that. This agreement with Hudson, Ink solves this dilemma for our members.”
Hudson, Ink has “systemized” plumbing contractor marketing with a variety of products and services including Customer Retention programs, lead-generating Yellow Page ads and “turn-key” marketing packages which even include software for marketing plans.
Readers can check out www.phccweb.org for updated info, or visit www.hudsonink.com to sign up for a free marketing newsletter, a free Yellow Page ad critique plus several marketing reports.
“Our members will be getting a nice marketing boost, and as marketers say, ‘But wait, there’s more!” Stack says with a laugh. “Customer retention has long been on my list of ‘must have’ items for members, yet too many of them failed to realize the value of retention. Hudson, Ink is giving the PHCC member community the opportunity to customize their newsletters with exclusive PHCC information. This is exciting, valuable, affordable and doable.”
