Social Media and Vending

Intelligent Dispensing SolutionsA few weeks ago we highlighted American Express’ new Twitter interactivity, and the age of social media innovation has just begun. The vending machine business continues to find new and interesting ways to merge with the vending industry, and now seems like a better time than ever to have your own Twitter account. According to a video showcased by Vending Marketwatch, customers will be able to purchase Hot Wheels toy cars simply by using social media creatively.

Developed by TrojanOne, the Hot Wheels Camaro-matic Trending Machine is a one of a kind vending product. Developed out of a collaboration between Hot Wheels and Chevrolet Canada, the machine was created to celebrate the release of the Chevrolet Camaro at the Canadian International Autoshow in  Toronto last week. Any guest that tweeted @HotWheelsCanada with the hashtag #ChevyCIAS would receive a complimentary limited-time diecast Hot Wheels car.

Tweeting for vending products is a new trending topic, but it certainly has the potential to stick around for a while. While custom vending machines such as the one made by TrojanOne seem right out of the future, these types of innovations are brewed up every day by the vending machine manufacturers at IDS. No matter your vending vision, Intelligent Dispensing Solutions can make it a reality.
