When you market a product like I do, It is interesting to sit back and watch the dialogue that occurs from a simple post on Facebook.
I received a testimonial from one of my customers who had recently purchased a QOD Electric Buggy.
It was very complimentary about their new buggy ...
"I've had my QOD buggy for just on a month and I love it!! Easy to use and fits beautifully in the back of my Fiat Abarth (don't even need to fold the seat down).
First charge of the battery lasted 45 holes, just (lucky I was only playing 9 before it ran out ).
Would recommend it to anyone looking for a motorised buggy.John R, NSW"
This post drew a comment from another QOD owner who agreed with the views of the recent purchaser.
Great buggy would highly recommend it as l have one and love it
And this is where it gets interesting. Many golfers believe the MGI Navigator is the benchmark for all electric buggies. This simply occurs because they are sold in Drummonds Stores and that is where most golfers go to when making a golfing purchase.
However, it is the availability of Social Media platforms such as Facebook that allows myths such as the one above to be put under the microscope.
Is it conceivable that the QOD Electric Buggy can match the major selling points of the MGI Navigator?
Potential electric buggy purchasers now have the opportunity to ask questions of unbiased golfers such as those who own a QOD Electric Golf Buggy.
Here is how the dialogue went once a QOD owner announces they recommend the QOD Buggy ...
- how manoeuvrable is the QOD? The Mig has a swivel wheel at the front, are the QOD front wheels fixed or do they swivel too.
- I have the remote model and it is control by the back wheels and it is brilliant.There is no need for front wheels to swivel
- thank you
Another potential buggy owner also joined the conversation
- how stable would it be going up and down steep hills! I would worry it would tip backwards if I got the remote option just from looking at it, but would be interested in an owners thoughts
- l updated to the remote model. There is a little stable wheel placed in the middle to stop it tipping backwards.
- You extend the front wheels out for stability which makes it very buggy sturdy.
- They are working on making the back wheels wider
- great, so no problems from your usage at all. Just tossing up between the qod and an mgi zip
- The difference with the QOD is once you buy one all future upgrades are add on to your original buggy.
- Australia made
- Excellent warranty
And I am able to inform you that this golfer did actually purchase a QOD Buggy.
Social media platforms are very powerful influencers indeed!
- thanks mate appreciate the help
