Editorial Correction: On page 34 of the September 2014 issue of Mobile Electronics, one of our writers wrote a comment about Compustar’s lack of contact availability to its customers. Compustar has responded by explaining that direct lines are not available on the website to better help them focus on their vendors and to supply the highest level of customer service. We apologize for the error and will do our best to avoid such wording in future issues.

In response, the company submitted a statement regarding its support for vendors:

“Compustar has launched an easy-to-use support terminal at that gears towards answering the most basic and most advanced questions regarding our products. The support terminal also features a ticketing system that allows us to receive customer inquiries, even outside of office hours. 

Our toll-free number is (888) 820-3690 and is primarily reserved to supporting our retail and distribution partners. We pride ourselves on providing excellent installer support, and are more than willing to walk our installers through even the most complicated install jobs.

9-6-2016 -- I co-chair a large local car show that attracts several hundred customs, classics, street rods, and tuner cars. It has been good for my business because these vehicle owners now see me as not only a car audio specialist but also a "car guy". People owning this type of vehicle want to know that the people working on their rides understand and appreciate what they mean to them. It doesn't generate big numbers of vehicles but it does give us the opportunity to work on them and these people usually have a higher disposable income level and will spend money to get the job done right and with quality products. And we get to work on some cool rides. Dave Clews, 12-volt Dave's Audio, Pottsville, Pa.

Sell what you believe in. It makes you appear more honest and sincere. Don't be afraid to give a little; you'll get more than you think. In the last few years we added custom vinyl which has been very successful. Profits are very similar to window tint. We just recently added lift kits and off-road accessories. There is a bid demand for that in our area and it should be profitable. John Draper, Custom Tint & Sound, Covington, Ga.

We should have done an on-site tent sale with great deals for a show. Brian Hampson, Stereo West Autotoys, Omaha, Neb.

I had an ad in a local magazine for a year and didn't get a ROI. Rommel Miranda, Car Audio, Radio & Security, Charleston, S.C.

Social media is required in today's world. Make sure you use it to promote your business. Greg Tackett, Greg's Custom Audio, Video & Car Stereo, Pikeville, Ky.
