Driving Holiday Sales at Wright Automotive

Digital, | by

In the automotive industry, Memorial Day is the mecca of all holidays. It is one of the first weekends of the popular car buying season and there is a major push to sell new and pre-owned vehicles. During this time, dealerships are always trying to offer the best deals and secure the most sales.

And with seven different manufacturers in seven major locations, Wright Automotive was looking to make a big splash in the Pittsburgh area this year. They approached MarketSpace Communications with only a few guidelines, specifically the campaign’s call to action. One of dealerships’ biggest hurdles in selling cars is physically getting people to the dealership. Many people are in the market, but they don’t actually buy until they look at and test drive a vehicle. Thus, the driving force (no pun intended) behind this campaign was to get consumers test driving vehicles.Read More

MarketSpace Earns Prestigious National WBE Certification

Odds & Ends, | by

After a rigorous several-month process, including an in-depth review and site inspection (with only one minor hiccup thanks to Mo’s antics), we are proud to announce that MarketSpace is officially recognized as a Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE) by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC)!

This recognition certifies the fact that we are at least 51 percent owned, operated and controlled by a woman or women – in this case, MarketSpace Communications is 100 percent owned, operated and controlled by President & CEO Pam Peters.

We have been certified by the commonwealth of Pennsylvania as a WBE since 2007, and look forward to the opportunities that the national certification will bring. Pam also hopes that this recognition will inspire women to follow their dreams and lead or start businesses of their own, just as she did when she created MarketSpace.

So, thank you Pam for all of your hard work and drive! MarketSpace wouldn’t be MarketSpace without you!

Hands on with iOS 6

Digital, | by

Last week, Apple unveiled iOS 6 at their Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC). There were quite a few new additions made to the operating system that powers Apple’s extremely popular iPad, iPod, and iPhone. Some of the biggest updates are to Maps and Siri as well as new features such as Do Not Disturb, Facebook integration, and a brand new app named Passbook.

Maps

The app that received the most significant update is Maps. Did you notice the omission of Google from the name of the Maps app? That is because Apple has developed their own mapping system. This has been a hot rumor for several years ever since Apple acquired a mapping company named PlaceBase. Rumors heated up again when Apple acquired another mapping company named C3 Technologies in October 2011. The rumors are no more, the new iOS Maps app is here.Read More
