20 Aug Vboost Automotive Viral Videos reach 1 Million Views
Vboost reaches friends and family through unique shared “Customercials”
Huntington Beach, CA – August 20, 2014 – Vboost (www.vboost.com), a viral marketing company focused on the auto industry, announced today that their dealer client video views just went over the 1 Million mark, as they approach their 3 year anniversary. “This is a great milestone for our young company,” says Paul Moran, Vboost President and CEO. “Friends and Family have the greatest potential to influence a customers buying decision and Vboost leverages the customer’s social network to promote car dealers.” Vboost has created a quick and easy process to capture photos at the time of delivery and quickly get those “branded” photos out to the customer. Now the customer becomes the dealer advocate by posting/sharing the photos. The Vboost Viral Marketing Platform delivers and tracks thousands of viral messages monthly – all designed to create referral business for their dealers. The captured photos are stitched into a slideshow set to music. These videos are shared via Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and other social platforms, as well as emailed to their friends and family. Now with over 1 million video views, the concept has obviously caught fire.
In less than three years Vboost has delivered over 100,000 customer videos they call “Customercials.” Nearly 35% of all videos get posted by the customer to their favorite social media platforms. A message coming from a friend is more likely to be viewed, and with the friend in the video the impression left has more impact than traditional marketing. “Our dealership has been with Vboost since they beta tested the technology. Our customers love getting their photos and the exposure we get through their friends and family is greater than anything else we have tried with social media,” said Bill Stephens, General Manager at Cerritos Infiniti.
Founded by automotive industry veteran Paul Moran, Vboost (www.vboost.com) has received amazingly positive results and feedback from their dealer customers. As one auto dealer stated, “We signed with Vboost on a Monday, and by Friday we were sending viral video messages to all of our customers. This is like running a TV campaign on consumers’ personal iPads and phones!”
Paul Moran, Vboost CEO, explains the company’s philosophy, “We have taken the opposite approach to reaching customers through their social networks – Instead of trying to lure customers to the dealers marketing sites we get the dealer’s marketing message to the consumer through their friends and family. We reach a previously unreachable audience. Dealers will soon realize that connecting with customers on their terms has a positive impact that traditional marketing will never see.”
With just a few clicks on a mobile app, hundreds of Vboost clients are sending thousands of viral messages every month, reaching new customers through their friends and family.
The Vboost mission is to create and deliver viral marketing messages every day that promote the dealership brand and create referrals. The customer receives the content in a format that compels them to share on their own terms. The shares and views are then tracked and optimized.
