Solutions 2021: All New 100% Virtual Experience

New format, all new content, new Solutions

Mark your calendars for January 4-8, 2021: Those are the dates for our 21st annual Solutions User Conference, the industry’s premier learning event. We’re looking forward to another year of teaching, networking and sharing best practices with our customers, exhibitors and sponsors.

This year’s Solutions User Conference is going to look a little different. Not just because we’re debuting all-new content – more on that in a second – but because we’ve made the difficult decision to take this year’s Solutions online. While we absolutely value our in-person time with our valued customers, out of an abundance of caution for the health and safety of all of you, our Real Green team members and our sponsors, we’re transforming this year’s Solutions into a feature-rich virtual experience.

We’ll be sharing more details about tickets, pricing and specifics on our new curriculum in the coming weeks, but in the meantime, here’s just a snapshot of what this year’s attendees can look forward to:

    • All-new curriculum, with some classes open to non-users for the first time ever
    • All-new content with learning tracks specifically designed for owners, technicians, office staff, sales, marketing and more
    • Post-conference access to all content, including session video recordings, for the entire year
    • “Fast-Track” user certifications
    • Virtual trade show highlighting the latest in machinery, fertilizers, pest and weed control products, industry best practices and more
    • Presentations and panel discussions featuring leading industry experts and thought leaders
    • Virtual networking opportunities

We’re hoping this is a one-time pivot and plan to see everyone in person in 2022 at the Renaissance Orlando at Seaworld in sunny Florida. In the meantime, stay tuned for more on how and when you can secure your spot for Solutions 2021!

The seasons are about to change – is your team’s logo gear ready for fall?

Fall and its cooler temperatures are on the horizon, so now’s the time to make sure they’re properly outfitted with seasonally-appropriate company wear that not only looks great, but will keep them comfortable in the changing weather.

Give Your Website a Makeover for Spring

When’s the last time you updated your website?

If you can’t remember, it’s definitely time for a refresh. An easy-to-navigate, easy-to-find website is essential for your business – you want your name to come up when they search for lawn care or landscaping services, and you want them to be able to find what they’re looking for once they’re on your site. Your company’s website shouldn’t be a one-time-and-done operation.

Why update?

  • If your site is even a few years old, it might be slow to load. You’ll lose potential customers in the seconds it takes for your site to show up on their screen.
  • Fresh content is key to winning the SEO game. Why is this important? Because it affects how your site shows up in online searches and makes it easier for people to find you.
  • An outdated-looking website
  • Ensure there are effective calls to action, prompting visitors to contact you.
  • On-target, informative content will give visitors the information they are looking for, right away – making sure you hook them in the few seconds you have to engage them
  • Is your site responsive and mobile-friendly? Most people access the web on their phones or tablets. Your site should look good on any screen.

Real Green Systems Digital Marketing specialists are ready to help you give your website a fresh look and feel for Spring! Our experts never stop researching and learning about the latest in the green industry – they know how to create content that will engage customers and keep them coming back for more.

Get in touch with our Digital Marketing team today to find out how they will make your company stand out on the web with a beautifully designed, easy to navigate, search engine optimized site designed to your specifications.
