It’s True: Electrical Distributors Are Using Twitter

on November 7, 2012


Providing high-quality products is only part of the equation- at Wheatland Tube, we pride ourselves on bringing you, our customers and partners, the expertise and support that fosters your success.

Our industry is undergoing rapid changes — not only in the way we search for product specifications and code requirements, but in the way we conduct business overall. There’s no denying that information is available to help guide you through what social media is and how it can benefit the electrical industry. And there are tools to make it easier for your sales reps get up to speed.

Just take a look at the National Electrical Contractors Association’s (@necanetGuide to Social Media, an entire section of their website dedicated to providing useful tips on how to begin, how to connect with business contacts online and how to keep up with the industry.

We’re proud to say many of our partners are already using social media to build trust and interact with your customers. If you’re looking to get started in social media, these are the companies you should be looking at. Here is our list of electrical distributors on Twitter:
