SHREVEPORT, LA (12.12.2013) – Today marked Instagram post number 1000 by 12voltnews.com.
Driven by mobile devices, social media is a key component of virtually every company’s marketing strategy. Instagram, a Facebook company, provides a vehicle to share images – videos too – via a free app. Posts to Instagram can automatically post to Facebook, Twitter and other social media channels.
“At the Spring Break Nationals earlier this year we noticed so many consumers utilizing Instagram to snap and share images. 12volt related products are high on the “want list” of young consumers – those products make great content for Instagram posts. We made our first Instagram image post 40 weeks ago at SBN 2013. Today we celebrate our 1000th post,” Mike Van Horn stated for 12voltnews.com. Many of the 1000 Instagram posts have included audio segments that accompany images. A 12voltBite includes a 15 second audio segment with image(s) posts to Instagram.
Images of 12volt industry members, companies, events, cool installations and products have been posted.
Industry headlines are featured in the News Today 12voltBite posted each business day. A “Happy Birthday” 12voltBite is posted each Sunday to wish Facebook friends Happy Birthday wishes for their upcoming special day.
The 12voltBite product is ideal for special events and seasonal promotions such as Black Friday and Christmas. The Holiday Savings theme and After Christmas Sale are timely examples. Each of these products can be customized for individual dealers and brands.
The “Reps on the Road” Instagram series features manufacturer reps working with dealers. Jamie White, Opus Marketing, commented, “‘Reps on the Road’ posts have provided visibility for dealers we work with, brands we rep and for Opus Marketing across the 12volt industry. We support your Instagram initiative.”
“ShoutOut” showcases dealers utilizing Instagram to engage and connect with followers. Auto Sport Plus, Canton OH, commented “Thanks for the ShoutOut. 12VoltNews has always been a great way for dealers to ‘Stay in Touch’ …thanks for offering us that.”
“Our plan is to continue highlighting the power of Instagram to the 12volt industry. At this point, many I speak with daily, are not Instagram ‘savvy.’ We have many projects in the works in and around CES. Going forward more industry members will grasp the power of Instagram,” Van Horn concluded.
