Taylor Irrigation Service, Inc has gone social. Social media is all the rage and TIS has jumped in with both feet. The Houston based irrigation super-company has launched its social marketing campaign and is now featured on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, Blogger, Tumblr, Digg and Reddit. If that weren’t enough they also appear on Angie’s List, Service Magic, Merchant Circle and Kudzu.
With a completely new website due out in October, TIS appears to be making the most of the web. The company’s president, John A. Taylor had this to say, “We are shifting gears a bit and jumping into social media because I see it filling a need and providing added value to my clients. Especially in this economy, there are an awful lot of people out there that are looking to save a few dollars and take care of the small stuff for themselves. We intend to help, not only our paying client base, but the entire Houston area by providing an interactive website that provides tips and advice for sprinkler system owners and DIY projects while educating the consumer about irrigation practices and water conservation at the same time.” Taylor went on to add that, ” We build our client base one client at a time and this is how we do it, by reaching out and helping… by being there for our clients whenever they need us. Adding the social media and the new website will give many much-needed tools to the consumer and will enable them to establish a healthier landscape while reducing their water bills. We will be featuring weekly, monthly and seasonal tips and articles as well as do-it-yourself guides and videos. My aim is to make the Taylor irrigation Service website a hub for irrigation knowledge rather than just another marketing or branding presence.”
Browsing through the local irrigation websites revealed that this sort of information is not readily available. Mr. Taylor, a seventeen-plus year veteran of the irrigation industry is not only a licensed irrigation designer and contractor but is also a licensed water auditor through Texas A&M University and works hand-in-hand with the Environmental Protection Agency and their Water Sense initiative. If that weren’t enough he is also a state of Texas and City of Houston backflow inspector.
