NGA PARTNERS WITH MARKETING PILGRIM
BOOST YOUR WEB PRESENCE TODAY

WASHINGTON, DC  (March 1, 2010) – The National Glass Association (NGA) and Marketing Pilgrim, LLC, announced a new member service that provides glass industry businesses with an exclusive search engine optimization analysis and audit. This innovative program offers NGA members the ability to evaluate and manage their online reputation. Dozens of NGA members have already benefited from the advice of branding expert Andy Beal, and now you, too, can tap into his expertise to boost your search engine rankings, customer inquiries and sales.

Studies indicate that 82% of all new customers use search engines to look for your business. Don't let them find your competitor instead. The exclusive audit includes technical analysis of your web site's architecture and design, written recommendations and point-by-point instructions, and a personal consultation with Mr. Beal. The NGA has negotiated a $500.00 discount exclusively for our member companies - a savings on average of nearly 20 percent.

David Walker, vice president of association services for the NGA, said, "We are thrilled to be working with Andy Beal and his firm, Marketing Pilgrim, to enhance the online presence of our member companies, and the glass industry as a whole."

Marketing Pilgrim also offers online reputation management analysis and social media monitoring tools. To learn more about NGA's newest member benefit, or to request a free quote, visit www.glass.org/cost-cutting.html, email akirkman@glass.org, or call 866-342-5642 ext. 151.
