There are lots of videos and posts we want to add to the 10-51 Knowledge base, check back often for new stuff.
We also need LOTS of stuff that isn’t already out there. This is an opportunity for you to create videos, earn a little income and develop a worldwide reputation as a roadside assistance pro. All you need is a cellphone and a tripod to get started. Simply create a video, upload it to Youtube and send us a link to it. You will always own your content, 10-51 just shares it here.
Here are a few things that would get a lot of attention:
Light Service – boosting, lockouts, tire changes, fuel service. It might seem like basic stuff to an experienced pro, but the demand for this content is huge! If you have vehicles stting around at the shop, do videos on them, lockout, boosting, tire changes etc. It doesn’t matter if they are wrecked or beat-up, we don’t care.
Neutral overrides – cars are getting more complicated every year, and getting a dead car into neutral is tough sometimes. There are apps that can help, but having a video makes it even easier.
Rollovers – there are a few videos of rollovers out there, but everyone wants to see more.
Truck walk arounds – simply grab your cellphone, start recording as you walk around your truck. Give us a quick talk as you walk around it, what type of truck , what type of wrecker or deck, what’s in your toolboxes, what type of tires do you prefer, have fun with it!
Reviews – Another easy video with lots of demand. Review your equipment, straps, chains, dollies, jacks, compressors, lights, tires, anything you want. Review your gear too – boots, gloves, reflective wear, anything. Trust us, you’ll get lots of interest.
Lifestyle – The most popular videos in any industry are the ones showing behind the scenes. How do you prepare for a busy day? How do you get your truck ready? What do you pack for the day? Extra socks? What do you pack for lunch? How do you have your truck interior setup for a busy day? How do you clean it after a hard day?
We don’t have a lot of rules at 10-51, be nice, save the angry nonsense for facebook and twitter. 10-51 is about professionals being professional and having pride in what we do.
Now get your phone out, make a video, upload it to YouTube and share it with 10-51
