Thousand Oaks, CA (PRWEB) August 18, 2009 -- AskPatty.com, Inc. announced today that they will be partnering with AutoNetTV who produces, manages and delivers reliable programming content to participating service center locations around the world, via its website, and through other distribution companies and outlets.
AutoNetTV has partnered with some of the most well-respected and established media companies (such as CBS - as part of the CBS Outernet division) and automotive organizations in the world.
Robert Cannon, Chairman of AutoNetTV, says, "We are delighted to be working with AskPatty. Jody DeVere is truly one of the great marketers in this industry. We think the AutoNetTV products will benefit AskPatty's followers and professional clients as well."
The AskPatty.com Certified Female Friendly training helps automotive organizations build, develop and maintain a high-performance workforce aimed at improving communication with women by offering virtual interactive training that transforms workforce performance management into an ongoing, dynamic process. Women car owners can locate a Certified Female Friendly location by zip code at www.askpatty.com.
"AutoNetTV helps automotive service center owners change their approach to communicating more effectively with women by utilizing educational video, blogs and other social content to empower women with automotive education. Women are not the same as men, and they do not make purchasing decisions in the same way as men. Women not only communicate differently, but also buy differently. Business Week reports that women make over 80 percent of the buying decisions in US households today. In effect, they have become nearly every family's chief purchasing officer," says Jody DeVere, President of AskPatty.com.
"AutoNetTV's mission closely parallels AskPatty's: Empowering consumers to make good automotive choices and helping service center owners and their staff to provide a better customer experience," said Lance Boldt, Co-Founder of AutoNetTV. "A record of consistently delivering value to both constituencies is why AskPatty.com is the #1 automotive advice site for women and AskPatty's Certified Female Friendly program is highly sought after by automotive service providers."
AutoNetTV is the pioneer of automotive television programming for customers in the waiting areas of service centers. 6,000 service centers throughout North America receive this custom programming to educate customers on their factory scheduled and preventative maintenance needs, and to improve their waiting experience. AutoNetTV combines fast-paced entertainment pieces from CBS with independent editorial content to increase customer satisfaction and preventative maintenance services. The monthly program is approximately an hour and a half long and provides multiple options for major service brands to integrate their branded messages within the existing AutoNetTV programming content. AutoNetTV also provides the Pro Channel, dedicated to the owners and team members of service centers. This program provides business and marketing insights, technical training, and other industry-specific messages devoted to the professionals working in the automotive aftermarket.
