“We are excited to accept this award. Engaging with customers through social media has been important to advancing our marketing strategy as well as our bottom line. We are building stronger customer relations and improving our ability to meet client’s need for both our commercial and utility lighting products,” commented Tom Salpietra, president and coo of EYE Lighting.
EYE Lighting has embraced social media as part of its marketing strategy. In the past year it has produced 13 YouTube videos that demonstrate its innovative lamps and lights products. Its sales teams are engaging with clients at trade shows through LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter. As a result, they have seen a significant increase in followers and likes from new customers as well as increased downloads for several of its whitepapers.
“Our social strategy is flexible, always adapting content based on trends and feedback. We’ve made some interesting discoveries regarding which posts were shared more frequently than others. Keeping our followers interested and engaged has been key to our digital success,” added Salpietra.
