Welcome PBIA Instructors

Hello all PBIA Instructors, 


Well, Spring is almost here...we hope you are having a great Winter!


Thank you for your overwhelming support for the rebranding of the BCA Instructor program to the Professional Billiard Instructors Association. 

PBIA Online Advertising Campaign - Help Us Track The Success!

As promised, we have recently launched an online keyword search advertising campaign aimed at driving consumers interested in pool and billiard instruction to www.playbetterbilliards.com

As we develop this campaign, it will be very helpful to know if you are receiving additional leads through this effort. 

So, each time you receive an inquiry about a lesson, will you please ask the individual how they found out about you?  We would appreciate it if you will then email us at rob@pbia-instructor.com each time you receive a lead from www.playbetterbilliards.com.  

Also, please record all lessons via the PBIA online lesson tracking system.

In With PBIA Out With BCA

Please change your titles on your web sites, email signature blocks, business cards, keyword advertising campaign, etc. to PBIA.  This will help us brand the new organization - which is good for all of us.

We also need you to link your web site and name on your email signature to www.playbetterbillards.com.  Again, this will help us promote certified instruction from PBIA instructors.
