Nationwide Marketing Group Announces Google Nest Prime Retail Program for Members

Group-exclusive program, supported by Audio America, makes all Google Nest products available to Nationwide Members.

Nationwide Marketing Group announced a new retail program exclusively for members of Nationwide that features Google Nest devices today. The program will be supported nationally by Nationwide distributor partner Audio America and is available immediately.

The Google Nest Prime Retail Program will make the entire line of Google Nest connected home devices available to Nationwide members, including Nest Hubs, Nest Thermostat and more. For Pro-Tail dealers, the program will seamlessly expand their current Google Nest lineup to include the entire product portfolio, while the Prime Retail Program will serve as an entry point where they can begin offering the full range of Google Nest products to their customers.

“We’re incredibly excited to work with Nationwide and Google Nest to bring this program to the Nationwide membership,” said Jonathan Elster, CEO of Audio America in a statement. “There’s a ton of opportunity in the connected home space for independent retailers. We’ve seen double-digit growth in this category year-over-year, and the Prime Retail Program will put Nationwide members in a perfect position to capitalize on that.”

“For the past couple of years, our members have had access to our group-exclusive Pro-Tail program to provide professional installation services for Google Nest products in customers’ homes. Today we’re building off of the success of that program with the launch of the Google Nest Prime Retail Program,” said Hank Alexander, director of Home Technology Specialists Nationwide (HTSN) in a statement. “The Google Nest Prime Retail Program will provide our independent retail members with wider access to Google Nest connected home products. We’ll introduce new ways for members to buy product and new promotions around the program, but this is really about giving our members access to industry-leading connected home devices and positioning them at the forefront of the booming connected home category.”

Google Nest and Audio America will be on the show floor at PrimeTime in Houston, February 9-12, 2020. Nationwide members will be able to see products in the Google Nest lineup first, learn more about the program and sign up to become a Prime Retail Program dealer. Registration is now open.
