Selling Tile: the Internet, the Industry & the Consumer features four tile industry experts who will discuss how the Internet is influencing the sale of tile to the consumer. Moderated by Christine B. Whittemore, chief simplifier, Simple Marketing Now, the panel of experts includes:
• Steve Slutzah – Westside Tile & Stone
• Dave Milanowycz – Florida Tile

“We all realize that the Internet isn't going away; what we haven’t figured out is the best way to use the Internet to sell tile. This session will explore how the Internet is affecting the industry and the consumer as well as how tile industry experts are adapting to the Internet,” says Whittemore. “All four experts are active online, but each has taken a different approach. This range of approaches makes for robust discussion and plenty of tips for success.”
