Why Advertising Works on The Saab Network
Online advertising works on The Saab Network because the Web and the Internet
are mediums that Saab owners are comfortable using. Many subscribers of The
Saab Network have been here for years, many going back to 1988 when The Saab
Network was created on the Internet as a mailing list. In addition, according
to a J.D. Power's APEAL study, Saab owners use the Internet more than any
other automobile owner group. The demographic represented by a Saab owner is
clearly defined and desirable.
Saab owners are great people. More Saab owners have advanced degrees than any
other car owning group. They're not dull either. The Boston Globe found that
Saab drivers average the fastest speeds on Mass highways. Here are some
