As announced, the consumer car audio site, CarTech4You, has been launched by CEoutlook to help raise awareness of the car audio and electronics aftermarket and to generate interest in your own web site.
HOW CAN CARTECH4YOU HELP YOUR STORE?
You can engage your web site visitors and look like the expert you truly are by running an RSS Feed of CarTech4You stories on your web site.
Also, you can promote hot new products from vendors that you carry by subscribing only to the RSS Feeds of your vendors. So if you are a Pioneer dealer and Pioneer has a new hot CarPlay deck, it will appear in the RSS feed on your site.
We want to address the millions of consumers who don’t know they can buy great car audio, remote start and driver safety products at a local store.
We want to reach an audience that is not the typical demographic for a car audio shop, like women and senior citizens.
Once we get more visitors, we will reach out to the appropriate blogs, magazines and industry groups to help promote 12 volt aftermarket products to a wider audience.
