Guy Salens: “With EMN I have been publishing information about electric motorcycles and scooters for a wide audience for 3 years now. I don’t focus on motorcyclists anymore. People are looking for mobility solutions. I am convinced that light electric vehicles can be an answer to this. Unfortunately, the country where I live (Belgium) has just cancelled all subsidies and premiums for the purchase of electric vehicles. Just now that a large number of electrical solutions are expected in 2020.”
I was a bit surprised about the latest climate convention in Barcelona. I had assumed we got a clear message, but apparently this is still a difficult issue for some countries. A missed opportunity … I see it as my duty as a concerned citizen, father and grandfather to introduce more people to electric driving at this moment.
Today I am launching my new services as an EV-Mobility Consultant: a full service division for light electric vehicles manufacturers and electric start-up’s around the world. A one-stop shop with strategic, creative and promotional services for electric motor companies.
Which are these services?
- The website of Electric Motorcycles News and it’s social media accounts
- Brand communication
- Public relations
- Design & Engineering
- New business
- The Electric Switch
- E-Center at Automotive Campus
Electric Motorcycles News (EMN) has been launched in March 2017 to inform a lot of people about electric motorcycles, electric scooters and some other electric light vehicles.
EMN’s social media community is still growing thanks to Facebook and particularly Instagram (23K followers). EMN has +/- 600 blogposts and counting.
EMN publishes press releases for free. Press releases are first checked by EMN on their relevance to the electric motorcycle market. If you are interested in more exposure at the global electric motorcycle market, EMN has some interesting (paid) content and advertising possibilities. In combination with the news items, EV-Mobility Consulting believes that EMN can play an active role for your sales & marketing. It’s a new channel with your target audience.
I share my expertise, my contacts and knowledge to get E-manufacturers on the right track. As an outsider I can see the situation from a fresh perspective and I like to think out-of-the-box.
I can guide you with:
- the search for investors and business partners
- the search for dealers
- product launches
- dealer meetings
- advice (design, sales, retail)
- city sharing projects
- smart mobility solutions
- set up new retail possibilities
- last mile solutions
- company cargo solutions
A global brand communication plan includes the guidelines for a complete housestyle, graphic design for print, web, digital communication and social media for your brand, company or store.
Being a graphic designer myself for almost 30 years I am responsible for all these concepts.
- graphic design
- social media
- content marketing
For all your press releases, EV | MC is working together with a Belgian agency specialized in PR and content marketing. We translate your expertise and know-how into a clear and professional message tailored to your target audience.
Contacting journalists goes further than just an email address in a database. Thanks to our many years of experience we have established a strong bond with our press contacts. This way we bring your story to the right journalist.
Design & Engineering
I am the European business partner of Marutee Design & Engineering Services with offices in India and the US.
The engineering team at Marutee has extensive experience in executing and managing various Automotive Design and Analysis Projects. Marutee can support the product development process beginning from the concept stage to the final design through the use of various state of the art design, analysis and optimization tools. Marutee has an excellent network of partners worldwide to support Prototyping and Manufacturing (Including Additive Manufacturing).
More and more people are creating new business with electric motorcycles. You can read more about these initiatives at EMN. A few examples are ‘Globules Verts’ (France), the ‘Electrocross Park’ in Wanroij (The Netherlands), the Electric Trial Paradise founded by Jérôme Delair (coach of National France Trials Team and multiple champion of France) and De Vroemfabriek in Belgium.
I think that electric vehicles could have an important role to play in:
- tourist residences
- hotel accommodations
- vacation rentals
- indoor cross and motortrial parks
- adventure parks
The Electric Switch
All kind of industrial companies can also benefit from the use of electric cargo bikes or e-scooters in their plants. Courier services are already using light electric vehicles for their last mile deliveries. A lot of take-a-way food companies are making the electric switch.
Or perhaps you are a motorcycle dealer with traditional gas motorcycles and you are thinking to do something electric in the future? Good, I have a large network of brands and manufacturers. I can guide you in the right choice of your new brands.
I can integrate electric scooters, e-bikes, e-trikes or other electric vehicles in:
- industrial plants
- logistic warehouses
- delivery companies (last mile delivery)
- sharing projects in cities (smart mobility)
The E-center is a new promotion place at the Automotive Campus in Helmond (The Netherlands) in cooperation with Electric Motorbikes (Gert-Jan Rongen). Manufacturers and/or brands who are interested in the Benelux and/or the European market, can present their electric motorcycles and/or electric scooters ‘live’ to a large audience at the E-center.
Depending of the formula, we add a lot of media exposure, like a test-review, photography, even a movie and social media posts to keep the presentation very active. A lot of activities are going on at the Automotive Campus (seminars, workshops, network events, …) and we create extra visibility during these activities.
- product launches
- extra media exposure (EMN, video, testreview)
- meeting center
