Tool Box Talks #1 - Chris Coxon
Welcome to the first instalment of Tool Box Talks.
Each month, we’ll put our questions to an expert tradesperson to get their views and advice on everything from burning sector issues, to rising to the top of the industry.
As it’s our first week, we thought we’d ask Eurocell’s Head of Marketing, Chris Coxon, to tell us a bit more about what to expect from The View and why it’s been set up.
So Chris, what is The View?
The View is a brand-new network created by Eurocell to provide installers with free training, how-to videos, business advice, promotions and entertainment. It’s a community where you can go to engage with fellow tradespeople, share advice and tips, or just have a general chat. The View is a go-to place to find useful information relevant to your work, as well as light hearted content to keep you entertained throughout the day.
Why have you set it up?
We’ve created The View to try and address some of the main issues affecting tradespeople. We know it can be inconvenient to spend days off the road, attending expensive training days. We also understand that being self-employed can be tough and sometimes you just need a place to go for advice on running your business. On top of this, if you work alone a lot of the time you need some form of entertainment to keep you going. We recognised these needs and decided to provide a one-stop shop for all these things, and loads more.
What does The View consist of?
The first section of The View is ‘On the Job’ which will include regular how-we-do-it videos from fellow expert builders, roofers and window fitters, demoing different products, tips and tricks and more. This section will also feature regular Tool Box Talks features, where we’ll ask a different installers each month a series of questions about their work to gain their insight and tips. ‘On the Job’ will also provide tradespeople with the latest industry news and information on new Eurocell products.
‘You and Your Business’ is the second segment of The View. Here, you’ll be able to access regular content offering advice on how to run a successful business. This section will feature helpful guides that address many of the challenges facing tradespeople.
The ‘Just for Fun’ section of The View will provide entertainment in the form of competitions, quizzes, sports news and general banter. This section is a great place to relax and switch off from work for a minute or two, helping you make it through to Friday with a few laughs along the way.
You’ll also want to check out the ‘Offers and Discounts’ and ‘What’s On’ sections where you’ll find exclusive deals on tools and invites to our latest events.
How can we get involved?
It’s really simple, just keep an eye on The View, where we’ll be posting content on each of the sections on a regular basis. We’d love to hear your ‘view’ on what you’re enjoying, or what else you’d like to see, so make sure you share your favourite content on social media, tagging @Eurocellplc in your posts, and take part in our regular competitions to be in with a chance of winning some great prizes.
