By Mike Davin, online editor, Boating Industry — As you know, we're always on the lookout for new ways to interact with our readers through social media and the Internet. Just last week we launched a new poll feature on our Facebook page, and we're hoping to roll out more new features in the near future.
We do that because we believe in the value of the Internet and social media for businesses — both ours and yours.
That's why I was happy to see that Manitou Pontoon Boats has come up with a way to make National Safe Boating Week, which runs May 22-28, a little more interactive. They've partnered with Discover Boating and Boatsafe.com to create a 25 question online quiz designed to promote boating safety and give people a quick safety refresher.
I did all right myself — I only missed a couple of question, although I admit I had a few lucky guesses. (It's been a while since I took a boating safety course, but I guess that's what National Safe Boating Week is supposed to remind us.)
Have fun with the quiz — and if you've got any similar interactive features on your websites, let us know.
