VAGScene Testimonial from CTS Turbo
Earlier this year, I had the staff at Vagscene with their project idea. Over the years, I've had countless advertising offers ranging from magazine pages to customers sporting stickers on their car with the variety of forums and shows promising to deliver notable difference for your business and became as interested in those as internet pop ups.
The scene is evolving as quickly as the world it's in, thus as much as magazine adds where the hot ticket 10 years ago, nowadays it seems short of a first page feature, you won't get any phone calls from it. If you do, it's because someone read it and went on an internet forum to ask about what he read. Logic would tell you to skip the magazine and shoot straight for the forums then, and that seemed to work. Problem is, depending on the forum, people will get a very different response. Major forums have become very profitable business and to some users very bias. This created pockets of users with similar beliefs which made it very hard to get into new crowds. Then social medias came in and you'll find much more action on those pages than forums. The amount of useful information or traffic seems to have gone down, forums are slowly getting outdated.
What Vagscene offers is a way to keep our existing customer base informed on our new projects, events and products while reaching to potential customers. You get a profile page where all your media can be hosted, all your recent activities be seen, your threads be found in a organized manner and obviously your company contact info. While none of those things are groundbreaking on their own, having one place to do them all is, that makes all the aspect of your company much more easily accessible, It creates an identity to which people can relate too and a quick look at some of the most successful enterprise in this day and age will reveal the importance of that nowadays. Redbull, Gopro and even Volkswagen themselves don't push their products nearly as much as they push their image. People buy a lifestyle, an image, a forum doesn't transpire that, social medias do. The more visually appealing format and Facebook log in also means you reach a much broader potential customer base without attacking them, they come to you.
After only a few months, we've had customers taking notice of products and services we offer that they didn't even know about. I get more inquiries for half the work I had to invest in forums. Vagscene has just started, and the website has been constantly improving over the last few months and the friendly staff has been open to suggestions. Since they build the website from the ground up, instead of using a readily available platform, they are a lot more flexible to what the users and sponsors want. I think we where all waiting for something fresh, it's here now and I am already glad I didn't just read the first few lines of the email and marked the email as spam after reading the word sponsor.
