Online Extra: Beyond the PRO AV 60
Click Audio Video in Tooele, Utah, balances home and commercial AV work.
When PRO AV asked companies to nominate themselves for the PRO AV 60, many more than 60 firms heeded the call. Below are some of the integrators and other AV pros that did not make the list. These companies offer a variety of AV services throughout the country, from residential to commercial, videoconferencing to live sound. And many have their own perspectives on succeeding in the AV market.
"Don't sell brands other than your own," advises Shawn Milne at Click Audio Video in Tooele, Utah. Click Audio Video serves both the residential and commercial markets. "Rather than rest your success on the association with a brand that you don't exclusively control and retail, build-up your own awareness in the customers' minds."
