100 million consumers have downloaded the Firefox browser in the past year. If you market to a cutting-edge demographic, a third or more of your traffic could be from Firefox users.

eoecho is a Firefox user and so are most of our customers.

[FYI: Firefox is easy to download and install. It replaces Microsoft’s Internet Explorer and it’s FREE, much faster when browsing, includes a great tab function, etc. – we could go on and on about why we use it, but the most important aspect is the security enhancements it offers over Explorer.]

But that’s not all the club offers! You also get the club’s award winning magazine (The Star), local newsletter, discounts on parts, and access to racing events – find out what your car can really do on the track (VA International Raceway and others).

The Star Garners Four “Oscars of the Auto Industry”

New York (Nov. 15) – The Star, the Mercedes-Benz Club of America magazine, has won four IAMA awards, considered to be the Oscars of the auto industry.

Announced today by the International Automotive Media Association at its annual awards presentation, the IAMA awards honor writers, publishers and media relations professionals in the automotive industry.

Walter Haessner, executive director of IAMA said, “The four awards won by The Star are extremely well deserved. Our judges agree that it’s unquestionably one of the best-written, best-produced car club publications out there. The Mercedes-Benz Club magazine rivals the major car books in content and photography as well as graphic design.”

David Cummings, executive director for the Mercedes-Benz Club said, “We are ecstatic to receive this recognition of excellence. For years, The Star has been a key part of what draws Mercedes-Benz owners to join the Club. In fact, while the benefits of MBCA membership are numerous, many members feel that just receiving The Star every other month makes our $45 annual dues a terrific value.”

Enter “fee-based” business-networking organizations such as BNI (Business Networks Int’l) and numerous similar organizations.

For an upfront fee, networking organizations promise to provide what we really want, qualified referrals. But buyers beware; the membership and annual fee isn’t your only cost and the total marketing expenditure is far greater than most of us realize.
