Good Value Upgrade? Change Your Vehicle’s Seats

A seat is the one piece of a vehicle’s interior that takes the most wear and tear. Its condition is also the first thing a potential buyer notices inside a vehicle. A damaged or worn seat can really hurt the final price when the time comes to trade-in or sell it. Replacing that seat is a great way to protect your investment. According to Bank Rate, www.bankrate.com, one of the best things an owner can do to upgrade a vehicle is to replace the seats. Non-personalized, vehicle appropriate seats - along with new rims, navigation systems, premium stereo packages and sunroofs - can add great value to a vehicle.

Value Of Education

Business owners intuitively understand the value of a skilled employee, yet many companies fail to realize the benefits that training can make in an organization. Worse, leaders underestimate the high cost of not training.

A Growing Game

The Internet has come a long way in 20 years. Back in the early days, users didn’t mind waiting for a dial-up connection to slowly … very slowly, load a page. Today, that’s unheard of. It is also rare, and frustrating, to come across a website that isn’t mobile friendly. There are 2.8 billion Internet users and most of them prefer to browse on their mobile devices, i.e. by smartphones and laptops. There is a direct connection between increased mobile use and an increase in mobile advertising.

Forget Green

The automotive recycling industry has been talking about going “green” for years. We’ve all read about the benefits of marketing our parts as “green” and we’ve sat in on the seemingly endless number of sessions at our trade shows telling us to use the word on our websites and marketing materials.
