HVACR Business Launches SocialTract, a Social Media Service for HVACR Contractors

CLEVELAND, OH--(Marketwire - April 19, 2010) -  Terry Tanker, Publisher of HVACR Business magazine, today announced the formation of a new partnership with leaders in the HVACR and social media industries to develop SocialTract, a new social media service specifically designed for HVACR contractors. The new service is part of the magazine's strategy to help its readers move successfully into social networking. According to Tanker, "HVACR contractors must be involved in social media to attract and retain customers from now and in the foreseeable future."

SocialTract's turnkey services include content strategy planning, social network and blog setup, consistent content creation and monthly analytics reports.

SocialTract's service is based on the belief that social media does not work without first creating valuable, compelling and consistent content targeted to customers and prospects, something most contractors simply can't do or cannot outsource at an effective price point. The new service will set up a social media strategy for contractors based on delivering two blog posts per week on their custom-designed blog. SocialTract's expert content, in addition to being leveraged on sites like Facebook and Twitter, can be used on the contractor's website, enewsletter and other marketing where content is desperately needed.

"It's hard for contractors to understand that integrating social media into the overall marketing mix starts with a great content strategy," stated Joe Pulizzi, CEO of SocialTract.
