Akebono Launches Summer ‘Sell Brakes, Get Rewards’ Promotion

Akebono will reward retail and phone sellers with a $25 American Express Prepaid Card for every 12 sets of Akebono brake kits sold, including the best-in-class Pro-ACT, EURO and Performance ultra-premium ceramic brake pads, the company says.

FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. — Akebono Brake Corp. is helping its retail counter and commercial phone sales team enjoy the summer by rewarding them with gift cards. The promotion runs through Aug. 15, 2013. Akebono will reward retail and phone sellers with a $25 American Express Prepaid Card for every 12 sets of Akebono brake kits sold, including the best-in-class Pro-ACT, EURO and Performance ultra-premium ceramic brake pads, the company says.
 
“This promotion achieves two important objectives for Akebono,” said Ken Selinger, director, Akebono aftermarket sales and marketing. “It creates an enthusiasm in the marketplace for our industry-leading products and recognizes the hardworking sales force that delivers superior products and service to its customers by installing Akebono brake pads.”
 
Because the promotion provides sellers with a bonus for every dozen kits sold, dealers are encouraged to boost their summer inventories. Details on the program are available at http://akebono.4myspiff.com. Claiming the prize is as easy as completing an online registration, and mailing invoices to the location specified on the website.
 
“Our retail customers know that when they sell Akebono brake pads, they are selling the best performing brake pad available,” added Selinger. “This rewards them with greater profitability and satisfied customers.”
 
Akebono’s ultra-premium ceramic brake pad technology is precision engineered for superior performance, quality and profitability, according to the company. Akebono is factory-installed on more than 270 models.
