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.
