As they say, “That’s all folks!” 2018 has passed us by and as we move into 2019, we have to wonder what great fortunes will come our way?
2018 was a year of growth, learning, joy and even some pains for us at Hydrovac Nation. It is said that nothing worth having comes easy and as far as we are concerned, Hydrovac Nation is definitely worth having!
The Hydrovac Nation Facebook page was created on Dec. 8, 2015 and the website launched in February, 2017. Since then, each year has seen fantastic growth, but 2018 has proven to be the best year yet!
We are amazed and humbled by how far we’ve come and it is all thanks to you, the members and supporters of this great Nation.
A glimpse of where we are today:
- A list of our Facebook pages include the HN Main Page, HN USA, HN Classifieds, HN “Like” Page, HN 4 Business, Tanker Nation and Vac Truck Nation. This adds up to over 11,000 followers!
- Our other forms of social media include Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram. Because we have “HN” accounts as well as personal accounts that focus on the industry, we have thousands more followers in those areas. The power of social media is amazing when harnessed and used correctly.
- The Hydrovac Nation website is definitely something we are proud of. It took a Facebook group page to bring us into mainstream media with a tangible product that has gained attention on a worldwide stage. With over 130,000 hits so far, we are in the top Google search listings for “Hydrovac”. This could not have been done without the help of our amazing webmaster, Bridget. Thank you for all you do!
We need to thank the client advertisers that supported us in 2018. Tornado Global Hydrovacs, Nylus Systems, Dynamic Filtration, Vac-Con, Revolution Industrial and Infield Solutions. We value and appreciate your support and look forward to having you join us in 2019.
We have more client advertisers signed up for 2019. You will be seeing them on the website and our social media networks soon!
We have many other client sponsors that provide us with information and resources to share with you. This has helped us add content to our website giving our members more options when searching for help with a project, a repair or maybe even a business growth plan. As time goes on, we will continue to add these valuable items in hopes that you will gain from them.
Another great highlight of the year was the participation of our members in all the sponsored giveaways. Everyone enjoys winning something and without the giveaway sponsors such as Hydrotech and Joe Johnson Equipment, none of those would be possible.
Members, Companies of the Month & Contests
There are endless examples of things we are proud of in 2018. All of our Member of the Month, Company of the Month and Contest winners, plus every one of you that took the time to offer help and support to those asking for it.
This was the idea that formed Hydrovac Nation – a Brotherhood of support where you can find help, advice, a kind word when you’re down or a wave from a passing Hydrovac. It makes the day just that much better!
A special shout out to the man who is undoubtedly our biggest and most sincere supporter. Marvin, you are the member we envisioned when this all started. Thank you for all your support and kind words. You bring a smile to our faces every day!
To all the fine companies that support local charities, hire and support your local employees, build your communities and make this industry better. We thank you. A word of thanks must also go out to everyone that came to help those in need in times of trouble this past year. You efforts are not forgotten and all of you make this effort worthwhile.
I could go on with more stories and events of this past year that were important to us, but this article is about a thank you. A thank you to each and every one of you that helped make Hydrovac Nation what it is today.
Stay tuned folks. We are only getting started!
From all of us at Hydrovac Nation, we wish you a very Happy New Year and all the best in 2019!
