The Largest Powersports Dealership Group In Texas Takes On The Tough Economy By Setting Up Shop On Their Facebook Page.
San Angelo, TX – November 11, 2009 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – The motorcycle and powersports markets have been hit especially hard by the recent economic downturn. Manufactures are announcing record losses and dealerships all over the country are closing up shop.
Bucking this downward trend however is a powerhouse dealership group out of Texas: Family PowerSports.
Family PowerSports, the largest motorcycle, powersports, and boat dealership group in Texas, is not letting a down economy keep them from pursuing progressive and exciting new ways to reach out to customers across the country.
While there’s currently no shortage of sites online to shop for parts, accessories, and gear; Family PowerSports is the only retailer to move into the space of selling to new customers directly on their Facebook “page.”
“Facebook has become one of the single most visited sites on the internet” says Todd Shafer, Family PowerSport’s Multi-channel Sales and Marketing Director. “It’s so large, and so engaging, that it’s almost become an internet unto itself. As a premier retailer of powersports vehicles, accessories and apparel, it just makes sense that Family PowerSports creates a way to serve our customers where they are hanging out online. More and more, that’s on Facebook.”
Launched a little over a month ago, Family PowerSports’ page already has close to 500 fans that use Facebook as a way to keep up to date with what’s going on at Family PowerSports. The recent addition of the storefront to the page just adds one more compelling reason for customers to interact with Family PowerSports online.
Wade Hoak, Family PowerSports’ Vice President concludes by saying: “This Facebook Storefront is just a small initial step in terms of what we’ve got coming online in the next few months. We see the web as offering almost unlimited growth potential for our dealership. We’re committed to doing everything we can to make it easier for people all over the US to be Family PowerSports customers.”
