ARIES Automotive, a fast-paced marketer and innovator of truck, Jeep, SUV and CUV accessories, has officially launched the Team ARIES website.
The website features a unique page for all current Team ARIES Pro Builders, including video profiles about their vehicle builds as well as images of the vehicles in action. In addition to the Pro Builder pages, ARIES also features profiles for all Team ARIES Ambassadors.
Team ARIES started as an idea to showcase and interact with elite builders in the aftermarket industry, those who are leaders and innovators with a passion for what they do. As a supplier, Team ARIES provides the company with invaluable feedback from industry experts and allows it to show off some of the cutting-edge products in a unique way.
Each Team ARIES Pro Builder is tasked with customizing a vehicle with ARIES products. The vehicle build is captured with a professional video that showcases the builder, the vehicle and the products used in the build. It also features the vehicle on social media, YouTube and especially at regional and national events like the Easter Jeep Safari, Off-Road Expo and the SEMA Show in Las Vegas. On April 1, ARIES went live with a website dedicated to its builders and businesses that it is partnered with.
Unlike traditional sponsorships in which either the manufacturer or the shop is completely responsible for promoting the project, Team ARIES wanted to create a program that spotlights the products, the builders and the project equally so that everyone benefits from the shared promotion, according to a press release.
