NERVDA recently launched a new service for their dealers and members, and it was a huge success on the first weekend when John DiPietro visited Major’s RV Service Center in Bourne, MA and Long View RV in Windsor Locks, CT during their Columbus Day promotions. Modeled after onsite radio and television appearances that we have all seen at car dealers, restaurants and other consumer events, DiPietro spends three hours at the NERVDA members company doing Facebook Live videos throughout the event. In the first two visits, he was able to produce 6 to 7 videos, usually on the hour and half-hour. John is a New England radio and television personality, in addition to his work as a sales and marketing […]

In our ongoing effort to engage and inform our RVing in New England audience, we began incorporating Facebook Live Videos of our NERVDA RV Dealers and Associate Members early this spring. Those videos have been incorporated for each dealer under our Media tab on NERVDA.com. Moving to the next level, we have started a multi-person talk show format on our NERVDA Facebook Page. We will announce details soon but it will be a weekly format, probably 30 – 60 minutes depending on the agenda and contributing guests. This is our first attempt with this app. Hosted by Bob Zagami with guests Michelle Fontaine and John DiPietro. We were pleased with the initial audience and the views received were very good […]
