‘Follow’ the leaders for construction news & resources

Posted on Feb 1, 2011 by Jen Bauer


Inc. magazine recently put together a comprehensive list of 30 Tips of Using Social Media in Your Business from which any business can learn.

There are many companies in the construction industry that utilize social media to reach clients, perspective clients, employees and their communities. While various platforms are used mostly for selling products or promoting services, many companies choose to share their knowledge as well. Here at Miron, we feel social media is a great tool for communication, allowing us to share updates on industry news, projects, best practices and more.

We wanted to share a list of others in the industry who we feel do a great job being a resource.
