NERVDA Helps Serve up Facebook Live Videos

Mon Feb 26, 2018

151968778579309.pngThe New England Recreational Vehicle Dealers Association, NERVDA, has launched a new service for its dealers and members—Facebook Live videos.

According to NERVDA, the program was a big success when beta tested late last year, with producer John DiPietro spending about three hours with NERVDA member companies and producing six to seven videos, usually on the hour and half-hour. All videos are live on the NERVDA Facebook page.

DiPietro is a New England radio and television personality, in addition to his work as a sales and marketing consultant and owner of a media marketing company that produces aerial photography and drone video. DiPietro is a frequent substitute guest for Jordan Levy on WTAG (AM, FM and iHeartRadio). Levy is the former Mayor of Worcester, Massachusetts.

DiPietro has also had his own television shows on Worcester and Springfield stations and enjoys interacting with people in business settings. Being an active RVer for decades, he also knows how to make consumers and dealer personnel comfortable during the impromptu videos he does live during the onsite-online promotions.

DiPietro is an associate member of NERVDA with his aerial video and photography work and his FB Live videos through his Advanced Business Concepts marketing company.

To arrange for this service at an Open House or other promotional activities, contact DiPietro at 508-397-2974 or rvjohnd@gmail.com. The cost for three hours onsite/online is $500, with a minimum of six Facebook Live videos during his three-hour appearance.

Diamond RV Centre (West Hatfield, Massachusetts) incorporated DiPietro into its 28th annual Open RV Event last weekend and Lee's Family Trailer Sales & Service (Windham, Maine) is hosting DiPietro Saturday to kick off its March 3-18 Open House festivities.
