DAYTON, Ohio, June 7, 2011 – WinWholesale Inc., one of the nation’s largest distributors, has entered the social media world of Facebook, Twitter and YouTube as additional ways to keep contractors and consumers aware of items that could be of interest to them, such as product and industry information.
“Certainly, consumers are very aware of the advantages of social media, and we’re finding more and more that contractors are using those sites as a way to stay connected to business partners, trends and product information,” said Steve Edwards, WinWholesale, vice president of marketing.
Having a presence through social media networks helps link contractors and consumers to WinWholesale’s local company operations in 44 states, Edwards said.
Many of those local Win companies have social media accounts for their own markets. WinWholesale’s presence on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube is designed to complement local company efforts, Edwards said.There are more than 500 local companies across the country representing the Winnelson, Winair, Winlectric, Windustrial, Winwater, Winfastener, Winpump and Noland Company brands.
