In a bid to enhance their service offering to the Southern African tyre industry, the publishers of SA TREADS Digital magazine (the only dedicated tyre publication in Africa, now in its 28th year of production), also introduce a new electronic site – satreads.com – in 2012 that provides the industry with up-to-date news and information together with the chance to showcase their products and services to the world, at the click of a button.
Designed primarily with the local industry in mind, satreads.com allows for stories, photographs, videos, logos, website links and much more to be uploaded on a daily basis, at NO CHARGE to the customer!
SA tyre companies (manufacturers, importers, retreaders, tyre distributors, accessory suppliers) are all invited to make use of the site by simply sending their stories/information through to us on a regular basis. The stories* will feature under the Southern Africa News section with greater coverage being provided in SA TREADS in a forthcoming issue.*We reserve the right to edit all material.
International stories are being provided by dedicated tyre journalists stationed in different parts of the world with whom we’ve set up an exclusive arrangement in order to ensure that articles are fresh, relevant and of interest to our market.
More exciting still, the site makes provision for cost-effective marketing and advertising opportunities (see advertising rates and options) for tyre companies across the spectrum.
But that’s not all! A dedicated marketing drive via Google Adwords and SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) will further serve to generate international exposure and awareness for the portal while also providing advertisers with meaningful statistics by way of traffic to the site, numbers of hits, responses to stories/advertising banners and so on.
