“Our goal is to encourage all across the 12volt industry to utilize this incredibly powerful social media tool to increase their company’s visibility in the marketplace. Instagram is a free app. Using only a smartphone or tablet images and comments can be shared with followers in less than a minute. Images posted to Instagram can automatically post to Facebook and Twitter. Dealers who post images of primo installations, new products, new displays and events are connecting with followers and consumers. Utilizing the power of Instagram could definitely lead to visibility, store traffic and a good shot at writing business for 12volt retailers,” commented Mike Van Horn.
Presently SiriusXM and other 12volt vendors are offering very exciting consumer programs. Proactive retailers can utilize these programs to create interest from followers and consumers. Installers can win a $50 Visa gift card by participating in this 12voltnews.com contest.
