MRAA and Engaged! launch social media benefits for members
Monday, November 12, 2012
MINNEAPOLIS — The Marine Retailers Association of
the Americas has partnered with Engaged! to design social media benefits and
resources exclusively for MRAA members.
"Social media has become an essential strategy
for marine retailers to connect with prospects and customers,” says Liz Walz,
MRAA Director of Membership & Marketing. "The social media packages being
offered by Engaged! will allow our members access to their team of experts at
an incredible value, whether they’re looking for ways to improve their
dealership’s internal efforts or seeking an outside management solution.”
Engaged! is an MRAA Premium Partner, one of the
highest level of support for the association, with a central focus on providing
social media services for the boating business.
"While Engaged! serves companies throughout the
marine industry, my experience working for Prince William Marina has given me a
special passion for serving the marine dealer community,” says Josh Chiles, CEO
of Engaged!. "I am thrilled to be able to help MRAA members realize a return on
their investment in social media.”
Through this members-only offer, Engaged! is providing
two social media packages: a 1-Hour Social Media Review in which Chiles will
evaluate the dealership’s current efforts and provide insight into how to
improve their results; and the Anchors Aweigh Social Media Management Package,
in which Engaged! will create and post social media content designed to meet
the dealership’s goals. The 1-Hour Social Media Review is offered to members
for a one-time payment of $239, a 20-percent discount. Anchors Aweigh is
available exclusively to MRAA Members for the special price of $329 per month.
In addition to these benefits, Engaged! and MRAA
are developing social media resources to help members maximize their results,
including the soon-to-be launched MRAA Guide: 30 Days of Social Media Content,
written by Josh Chiles.
