Vboost Adds Three Powerful New Features to Auto Dealer Viral Marketing Tools

New Features Increase Social Media Interactions, Views & Customer Share Rates

Huntington Beach, CA – December 22, 2015 -- Vboost Inc., (, a viral marketing company focused on the auto industry, today announced the addition of three powerful new features to its highly successful marketing program auto dealers use to produce share rates from 60 percent to as high as 130 percent for their innovative “customercials.”

First, Vboost has signed an agreement with a top recording clearing house. Auto dealers now have a huge selection of music to use as background for their “customercials.” This further increases the impact with the customer, boosting social media interactions, views and customer share rates. For a sample click here:

“We now have the rights to use an incredible library of top music, from today’s artists to Rock and Roll classics,” said Paul Moran, Vboost CEO. “Music creates such a great emotional impact and our photo and video packages are now even more powerful. Dealers can match their ‘customercial’ song to the OEM music used for national TV ads if they like, or just choose a top-rated song that fits their brand or dealership style.”

The second new feature is an upgrade that enables dealerships to get instant customer consent to post their photos and videos on the dealership’s website and Facebook page, as well as other social media properties. Dealerships can now post this content every day. On average, customer consent is given 60-70 percent of the time. And, the final new feature is the ability for dealerships to text the “customercial” photos directly to the customers’ cell phone. This leads to increased open rates and faster online sharing.

Vboost’s core product is a quick and easy process to capture photos at the time of vehicle delivery and immediately send these “branded” photos onto customers to share with family and friends. The captured photos are stitched into a slideshow set to music. Now the customer becomes the dealer advocate by posting and sharing the video/photo packages via Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and other social platforms, as well as emailing and texting them to their friends and family. 

Vboost then monitors and quantifies results from each viral marketing campaign and reports back to their dealers. The Vboost Viral Marketing Platform delivers and tracks thousands of viral messages monthly – all designed to create referral business for its dealers. Vboost dealers enjoy high share rates because the content is unique and relevant to their customers. These results go beyond simple page views -- they reflect customers that are actually clicking and watching the dealership “customercials.”

The Vboost “customercials” can be sent to the customer with an enticing message, such as a first service offer, to encourage the customer to connect with the service department and schedule their first vehicle service. Once the videos and photos are shared, the offer then changes to a sales offer for friends and family. Up to 25 percent of photo packages convert into online traffic for the dealership and enhanced reporting features enable dealers to better track all these interactions.

Vboost has been successfully helping auto dealers connect with customers and win the online marketing game for over 3 years, constantly upgrading the platform based on results and feedback from users. The next generation of the platform brings Vboost to a new level.

“Our dealers often enjoy 100 percent share rates and thousands of photos/video views through our proactive process. We bring them more referral business by creating positive viral marketing from customer photos taken at the time of delivery. These then get shared by the customer on social media. As our dealers see the huge value of video, they have been asking for more features and options. I think our dealers will be very happy with these new features,” Moran said.
