Being a moving company, we are on the roads every single day and night making sure your belongings is getting to their final destination safely. The quality of the roads, bridges, etc., is obviously something that makes our jobs either really easy and smooth, or frustrating and challenging. We wanted to give our blog readers an overview of the TIGER grants being distributed to help fund road, rail and other infrastructure work.
The project has been dubbed the Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery, or TIGER, plan. “TIGER grants will tackle the kind of major transportation projects that have been difficult to build under other funding programs,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood. “This will help us meet the 21st century challenges of improving the environment, making our communities more livable and enhancing safety, all while creating jobs and growing the economy.”
The $1.5 billion fund should have a beneficial effect not just on worn-out bridges and highways, but on the job market, too. The economic recovery potential that this plan has is extremely exciting, but at Exodus, we are also thrilled to have hands on experience of the improvements across the country. Below is a chart of where the spending will occur:

Just yesterday, our Exodus team was lucky enough to have a conference with Mr. Joel Comm social media expert, also known as Mr. Adsense or the Internet Millionaire. Joel focused his discussion about the perks of using the internet to build relationships with potential customers or create a platform for current customers to engage in conversation. Joel reassured us that the internet is about one thing…Relationships. Twitter specifically, is about people, the sense of community built by people, conversations that are made, information that is shared, questions that are asked and questions that are answered. It’s about being portable with the people that like, know and trust you.With all the scam moving companies trying to take advantage of you, wouldn’t you be more inclined to engage in business transactions if there was added value to the relationship?
Joel also taught us about the 4 step sales process that can add value to the relationship that both parties can benefit from. For example, your Twitter profile needs to be built on a level of trust and support before profit even becomes a thought in your head. In order to be efficient and effective while building on the relationship that may one day lead to profit, three things must happen first. In this order people need to Like me- Know me- Trust me– and maybe one day- Pay me.
With all of that being said, hopefully these blogs will help you get to know a little bit about Exodus Moving Company so you can like, know, trust and maybe one day do business with us!
