Ultimate Builder Rolls Into LA

The Ultimate Builder Custom Bike Show moves into Long Beach on January 7-9, 2012. The SOCAL show is always an exciting one as many of the nation’s most noteworthy builders make a presence.

Promoting Kustom Bikes

We’ve designed the show for manufacturers, builders and dealers. We provide each participant with a motorcycle pad and a steel ring that encircles the bike. We encourage interaction with the crowd with owners handing out brochures and business cards. Average attendance is 50,000+ enthusiasts.

Working the Ultimate Builder has led to sales of customs, new and used bikes as well as parts, accessories and service for our dealers, builders and manufacturers.

Promoting the Kustom Industry

We construct a photo studio on the premises. We will shoot your bike and make the photography available to you. You can bring a model and / or parts to include in the photography session.

On Sunday afternoon we host the awards ceremony. Bikernet will be providing an editors choice award with the winner receiving a bike feature. We have 5 classes with $7,000 in prize money and over $500 in prizes. There is a small fee to enter depending upon your class. If you bring 2 bikes we provide a 10% discount. For 4 bikes, we provide a 25% Discount.

Why Use a Model in your Social Media?

Biker Pros Asks, Why Use WOmen
Biker Pros Asks, Why Use Models in your Social Media Posts?

Why are women used in Powersports? Influencing others isn’t luck or magic – its science. There are proven ways to help make you more successful as a marketer.

Sex sells because it attracts attention. People are hard wired to notice sexually relevant information so ads with sexual content get noticed.

Sex is an easy way to get the attention of males and make a product seem desirable. Women are objectified, and men are swayed to purchase the product and as a reward, get the women.

In one study, men who saw a new-car ad that included a seductive young woman model rated the car as faster, more appealing, more expensive-looking, and better designed than did men who viewed the same ad without the model.

One caveat, If the model is to sexy, it overrides the product and the viewer fails to register it.
