ECHO Showcasing ECHO Means Business Initiative and Kentucky Make-A-Wish Foundation® at GIE-EXPO

Chicago, IL (10/9/2017) - ECHO is getting the word out about its ECHO Means Business initiative focusing on pro users, while showing support for worthy causes such as Make-A-Wish Foundation at the 2017 GIE+EXPO in Louisville, KY.

The recently launched web portal contains content provided by its User Advisory Group (UAG) and other web pro participants. The brand neutral web site is dedicated to those in the green-scape business as a forum to share content, network and learn how to grow their business.

ECHO’s Facebook fans will be taking a closer look at those who have been providing content and reviews for the website. Six UAG Members will be showcased on ECHO USA’s Facebook page in three separate Facebook live feeds during the GIE+EXPO show. Each segment will present two UAG members talking about their business. They will be asked a series of questions and will take live questions from ECHO’s Facebook fans.
