Stiers began connecting with his audience and launched his Car Audio 101 series implementing his theories into ‘How To’ videos for vehicle batteries, alternators and wiring upgrades. This series helped to increase exposure for the brands he represented and built confidence in the products among consumers. Ultimately this familiarity and recognition was used to increase Maxxsonics’ footprint into Central America where he teamed up with internal Sales and led trainings and product promotions throughout several countries.
