Our mission is simple: BestCarAudio.com is an online magazine that seeks to educate interested consumers about existing and emerging technologies for today’s vehicles and to point them to qualified brick-and-mortar retailers to purchase those products and have them integrated into their vehicles. As such, the shops listed on our Dealer Locator must meet high standards for delivering exceptional solutions, world-class customer service, excellent craftsmanship and amazing attention to detail in serving their clientele. To that end, we’ve created these requirements for mobile enhancement retailers to participate in our Dealer Locator program.
Cost to Participate in the BestCarAudio.com Dealer Locator Program
If your retail store doesn’t already do business with 1sixty8 media (our parent company), the cost to be listed on the BestCarAudio.com Dealer Locator is $99 USD per year, per location. This fee also includes a Retailer Spotlight article and two Installation Spotlight articles published on BestCarAudio.com in the first year. Subsequent years include up to three Installation Spotlights. The projects your facility completes will also be given prime consideration for inclusion in the articles our editorial team creates each month, generating even more exposure for your company. Each retailer is responsible for submitting content requests and participating in social media discussions to highlight projects. Currently, BestCarAudio.com sees over 100,000 unique visitors each month and has nearly 35,000 Facebook followers.
Guidelines for Dealer Locator Inclusion
It’s essential that any shop we recommend to a consumer will deliver solutions and a service level that are consistent with our goals. As such, the following guidelines are the key factors we use to gauge the suitability for inclusion in the locator:
- The retailer must have at least 50 Google Reviews with an average rating of 4.5 or higher.
- Must have at least 50 Facebook Reviews with an average rating of 4.5 or higher.
- Must be a brick-and-mortar retailer with a well-equipped installation bay.
- Must derive the bulk of its income from retail, in-store sales and installations.
- Must offer brands aligned with the specialty retailer channel.
Approved retailers will be included on the Dealer Locator for one year, and renewal is dependent on maintaining the above qualifications. BestCarAudio.com and 1sixty8 media reserve the right to refuse any application for inclusion in the Dealer Locator. We do not offer any form of exclusivity in any market.
