Top 15 Questions To Ask Your Next Boss Before You Become Their Digital Marketing Manager

Posted by Brian Pasch on April 16, 2014 at 8:30am 16 Comments

By Brian Pasch

The responsibilities of an Automotive Digital Marketing Manager will vary from dealership to dealership. Regardless of the size of your company you work for, your future employer must outline the responsibilities of your job so that a clear job description is created.

Without a clear job description, it will be difficult for you to actively participate in your annual performance review.

If a detailed job description is not presented, offer to create one based on the questions provided below.

Top 5 Best Practices when posting to eBay classifieds

Posted by Jason Turner on April 15, 2014 at 1:30pm 0 Comments

Top 5 Best Practices on eBay Classifieds

With any new product and marketplace there’s a learning curve and we’ve recently gained more knowledge about what it takes to manage the “art” of posting to eBay classifieds. We want to share the Top 5 Best Practices we’ve learned over the last few weeks with you:

1.)  New eBay accounts require some “Seasoning” similar to the historical craigslist landscape.

      a.)  It’s best to start posting with 5 ads a day and work up to 25 or you may risk burning

            your account.



2.)  Dealers with similar inventory need to ensure there is a sufficient vehicle description with enough unique content to differentiate each ad from anther. We’ve found some issues with dealers who have very similar inventory and unfortunately, our system can’t always trick eBay into thinking the ads are unique so they may…

Data Base Marketing Can Promote Social Media Beyond Facebook's Paid Ads And Newly Limited Organic Search

WAAOL - All Automotive Advertising All The Time

Automotive advertising agencies have learned to manipulate the changing algorithms that search engines like Google and Bing use to drive organic search.  SEO is a fluid science that must now include social media. 

Automotive advertising agencies are dealing with recent changes on Facebook that limit organic search to power messages posted in their social networking community.  In today's Lunch With Phil show I discussed old school best practices that delivered consistent creative across multiple media and channels to increase the reach, frequency and…

How to make a banana into a bbq pork sandwich...with chips and a drink.

Posted by Leonard Buchholz on April 14, 2014 at 7:30am 1 Comment

One of the best things about traveling is experiencing how other people run their businesses. 

It also allows you to have many different Sales presentations from many different people. This story is about how one motivated, knowledgeable and especially friendly Salesperson made a banana into a bbq pork sandwich.

 

I was training at a dealership in Ohio and one of my favorite things to do is to ask the people who live there “Where is the best place to eat?” I have had many memorable meals in great places from asking this simple question.

  

On this particular day I asked an even simpler question “Where is the closest place I can buy a little fresh fruit like a banana for lunch?”

The service…

From the Trenches - A Better Way to Get Reviews

Would you write a review for a hairstylist while he or she was cutting your hair?



It's not enough to be against something; one must offer an alternative. 

 

I am known to be against in-store reviews. I believe they create a feeling of pressure to the customer regardless of your actual actions. Once you have created a great buying experience where the customer feels he or she has…

The Power of Podcasts for Social Marketing

Posted by Philip Zelinger on April 11, 2014 at 10:15am 0 Comments

Automotive Advertising agencies recognize the value of consumer generated content to extend the reach and frequency of their messages.  The challenge is how to deliver it in such a way that their customers will read it and hopefully forward it to a friend.

Customers prefer audio and video over the written word so one solution is to provide the content through podcasts or webinars.  These platforms apply to both B2C and B2B social marketing initiatives.

I used my blog talk radio platform - WAAOL, All Automotive Advertising News All The Time - to represent an example of a B2B venue that has…

Fallon Chooses Ford amongst Controversy & Salespeople Humiliation

Posted by Richard Holland on April 10, 2014 at 7:00am 8 Comments

Last month, I wrote an article on how Jimmy Fallon announced during “The Tonight Show” that he was in the market for a truck. Manufacturers immediately took to social media in attempts to convince the popular talk-show host that he should choose them, including Ford, Dodge, Chevrolet and Nissan. Fallon announced last week that he had chosen to purchase a 2015 Ford F-150 King Ranch. He then further announced that, while he had chosen the truck, he had not decided who he was going to buy it from. A cooperative effort between Ford and “The Tonight Show” conjured up a contest they named “Fingers on a 4x4,” in which 10 salespeople from around the country would participate for the opportunity to sell Mr. Fallon a truck, by putting their hands on a Ford F-150 located on the aircraft carrier…

Are You Really Using Data Analytics?

Posted by Jamil Zabaneh on April 9, 2014 at 6:37am 1 Comment

With Big Data and analytics having been the hot topic over the past couple of years, many dealers are recognizing that they can increase the effectiveness of their marketing. Many dealers, however, outsource much of their digital marketing to vendors that sell them on the use of their data to achieve this. The problem is that most vendors don’t really use it as they say they will. Let me explain.

Dealers realize that sending the same message shotgun-style to their entire database is a bad idea. Many don’t have time to do their own data analytics so they rely on vendors to do it for them. Most vendors actually practice segmentation vs. deep analytics. They will separate service customer versus sales customers and create separate lists. They may even go a little deeper than that and add…
