Complete the TRP 2015 Website Survey
By Ted Reiff
I remember when the arrival of spring triggered a sweeping (no pun intended), top–to–bottom housecleaning. In many places, it still does. However, these days many of us must regularly assess and renew not only our physical space, but our online presence as well. Just like houses, websites get messy and gradually lose their effectiveness.
At TRP, we increasingly rely on our website to connect with, inform and persuade the public regarding the benefits of building–materials salvage and reuse. So, this spring we plan to take a careful look at how the TRP website is working and make some needed changes.
For that, we need your help.
We want our website to be as user–friendly and informative as possible. We are always looking to improve what we do. Your comments and suggestions will help us reach more people and better promote our services of deconstruction, retail sales, project management and training.
Please help us by completing and submitting this survey. It can all be done online.
If you complete the survey before midnight on April 30, 2015, your name will automatically be entered in a drawing for a prize. We haven't decided on the prize yet, but it will definitely be worth five minutes of your time. (We'll need contact information in order to notify the winner.)
If you are a TRP employee, director or advisor, you will have to sit this one out, as anyone closely associated with TRP is ineligible to participate.
We want to hear from you. It only takes a few minutes. You’ll find the survey here.
