Legrand/Pass & Seymour Gets Social on Facebook and YouTube
SYRACUSE, N.Y. (May 27, 2010) – With customers increasingly looking to social networks and video for product information, Legrand/Pass & Seymour is bringing its electrical wiring devices to Facebook and YouTube. The company’s series of insightful articles and “Quick Tips” videos demonstrate innovative, new products and highlight the benefits they offer homeowners – including energy savings, safety, convenience and aesthetics.
“Upgraded electrical devices can add style and function to any room in the house, and we’re trying to reach a whole new audience with our social media outreach,” said Jim Lent, marketing communications manager at Legrand/Pass & Seymour. “Most people don’t think of their electrical devices when remodeling or redecorating, but replacing them with lighting controls or combination devices can make a big difference and add value to a home. It’s relatively inexpensive too.”
