Reach a new audience

As a brand, you only reach the followers of your own corporate social media channels. Reach a completely new local audience by providing your dealers withready made content to share on their regional pages.

Consistent brand expressions through all retail channels

Every dealer promotes the brand in a different way, so your communication lacks consistency. With Apostle you manage all brand expressions of your dealers and stay in control of your brand.

Unburden with ready-to-share social media content

Dealers and retailers lack the knowledge and time to schedule social media posts on their regional pages. With Apostle you unburden them with ready-to-share social media posts, which they share in one click.

This is why brands start their dealer advocacy program

Your dealers will take on the role of brand ambassador and share organizational or brand-related content.

What's in it for your
dealers?

More traffic to their stores

Dealers increase their online reach and attract a greater number of customers to their stores, by actively posting (authentic content) on their social media channels.

Up-to-date social media accounts without effort

Sharing posts with the Apostle app roughly takes about 10 minutes a month. A very limited investment of time with great results! Help your dealers by creating ready-made social media posts for them. Moreover, your dealers’ social media knowledge is often limited. Apostle helps and activates them in an accessible way.

They create a stronger relationship with your brand

By being active on social media together, your dealers will stay informed of what is happening in your organization. This increases the bond between each other, as well as with the brand.
