SPEAKERSMark Burkholder of Burkholder Brothers Landscaping - Chester County Landscaping and Greg Cazillo of @Cazillo (Website design)

1st Speaker: Your front lawn gives your friends, family and customers their first impression of you, your home or your business. Mark discussed the importance of keeping the front lawn of your home or business looking neat and beautiful. Mark provides a professional design which will allow you to visualize your lawn or landscape before construction begins. Also, if you have not checked your sprinkler timer you may be providing your lawn and gardens with too much or not enough water. The Burkholder team can check and correct your sprinkler systems. Send your leads to Mark.

2nd Speaker:   Greg has re-branded his company which is now called @Cazillo. A good referral for Greg is an individual or business that:  1. Is unhappy with current Website design process (e.g., taking too long, designer too expensive, bad photography, internal I.T. department is handling), 2. would like to have a new Website designed (e.g. re-design should occur every 1.5 to 2 years, with content updated every 6 months); and 3. need new features implemented (e.g. CMS, online forms, ticket sales, blogs, e-commerce, calendars, newsletters and more). Please send your referrals to Greg!
