Put Your Business “On the Map!”

More than ever, consumers are searching for brands, products, and services online. If you want to let them know that you’re their local option, it’s important to associate your business with those brands. 

One of the easiest ways to do that is by using Performance Corner’s On the Map tool, which gets you listed on the online dealer locators of the manufacturers you sell and install. No more wasting your valuable time signing up on multiple sites: On the Map does it all for you with just a few clicks! 

This FREE service is available only to Performance Corner® affiliates. Just log in to your account at accounts.theaamgroup.com and select the On the Map portal. The tool will ask you to indicate the brands you actively sell or install and to answer a few questions about your business. Then click Submit. It can take up to 60 days for a manufacturer to add your submission to its dealer locator, and we cannot guarantee that every manufacturer you select will approve your request, as each has its own terms and requirements that must be met. 

Note: Please select only those vendors you actively sell, as selecting all of them might flag the request for additional verification and slow down the process. 

Benefits 

  • Tells consumers searching for the products you sell that they have a local option. 
  • Drives traffic and grows sales. 
  • Saves you time by submitting your request to multiple manufacturers at once. 
  • Absolutely free to use.

AAM GROUP PARTNERS WITH GREG GRIFFITH AND MANCAVE DESIGNS IN 2017 SEMA PROJECT VEHICLE: RENEGADE III

Renegade III Greg Griffith AAM Group

October 26, 2017 (JOHNSON CITY, Tenn.) — The AAM Group™, the largest program distribution group in the SEMA marketplace, is jointly announcing the 2017 SEMA project vehicle Renegade III: a 1974 Jeep CJ-5 that has been taken to the ground and reconstructed with modern enhancements any 1970s owner would have loved. Renegade III is being outfitted by the biggest names in the automotive aftermarket—most of them sponsoring manufacturers of the Performance Corner® jobber marketing program. The Jeep will make its exhibition debut at the SEMA Show in Booth SL08 in the South Hall, Lower Level.

Renegade III was conceived, designed, and managed by AAM Program Sales Manager Greg Griffith and built by the Mancave Designs team. In addition to the modern upgrades, OE enhancements, and custom touches, the Jeep includes several “Hidden Mickeys”: Mickey Mouse silhouettes placed throughout the build. Griffith originally bought the Jeep as a modest cruiser for his wife, a former Disney cast member and enthusiastic fan, and Renegade III exists as both a salute to her and a one-of-a-kind vehicle that brings together two iconic brands.

“One of the best things about this project was that it allowed us to include both our truck and performance manufacturers on one build,” said Griffith. “The support they gave us was simply outstanding. This build should have taken four years under normal circumstances, but our team pulled it together in just over nine months. I am very proud of this Jeep, as she continues our tradition of bringing unique looks and stances to SEMA—plus, blending old with new and showcasing some really crafty parts.”

Digital Marketplace: Websites for Local Aftermarket Businesses

Having a website used to be a luxury for small businesses. Now they’re essential.
