Telling Your Green Building Story with Rate It Green - Let's Get Started! - 1

Let's build your green building brand together by celebrating your company's accomplishments, leading edge products and services, and team.  Rate It Green can help you create and promote dynamic and custom content and messaging to convey and amplify your company's stories, news, events and expertise.  

There are so many ways for us to partner to amplify your great content!  Our content includes Articles, Discussions, News, Groups, Videos, and Events.  And we're constantly working on new ways to share information about green building products, services, princples, and practices.  We'd also very much like to hear and work on YOUR ideas!  You tell us what you'd like to share, and we will host, curate, and promote your key messages through our social channels and network.  

What makes great written green building content?  We've answered this question in a separate discussion, but we can summarize some key points here:

  • Sincerity, in both asking questions and when providing answers. Please make sure your content matches what you will say it will be.  This builds communiy and trust.  
  • Content that trule educates or helps someone solve a problem now or in the future. Content that adds value for someone will always truly be appreciated.  This content is more likely to be promoted widely, and to generate discussion. 
  • Sharing experiences and learnings, especially on the job experiences. Help someone else prevent something you learned about the hard way! (And others will do this for you as well.) 
  • Specific product, service and practice recommendations.  Share a favorite product or experience, or tell someone how to install or do something you achieved.  By celebrating wins, we move all green and healthy building forward-   and that's the goal! 

Creating videos has also become a popular opportunity ever since Green Builder Matt Hoots first set out to share his expertise by creating videos with Rate It Green Member Companies, and other industry experts.  You may have noticed  Rate It Green's growing YouTube Channel.
