Kevin Ward, president/CEO of A Ward Design in Winter Haven, FL, and featured in our Monday E-Newsletter discussing his views on the importance of attending IWF, is developing a creative approach to connect with his customers.

He and his son, Eric, are producing “how-to” videos that will be featured on their Web site. These videos will be used to generate interest and allow customers to access them if they have a problem with a door, drawer or hinge that needs to be adjusted.

Ward says that they have already invested in video and audio equipment and in the near future they plan to build a soundstage on the top floor of their shop.

This creative approach is a byproduct of their various interests outside of woodworking: Ward use to fly airplanes, his son Eric has a passion for music and his other son, Bryan, developed the Web site,, based on the YouTube model.

For more information about the Wards, read the February CWB article on the company.
