t like what he sees posted in an ADM forum or blog to contact another executive at a car company for the purpose of censuring and impacting an individual's employment? If you are reading this, then you probably have also read other forums or blogs where individuals discess what they like or do not like about an OEM sponsored or mandated program... My question is this, if a supplier does not like what they read here at ADM, is it a morally and ethically sound practice to exert pressure on an individual by writing an email that complains to a car company and asks that car company to enquire at the individual's employer about the appropriateness of publishing such criticism? Because, I am experiencing this right now and it feels like my rights to freedom of speech are being squashed through an attempt to get me disciplined by my employer using undue influence on a major car company!
Am I complaining about something that is just part of the game? Should I just chalk this up to the heat in the kitchen? Why didn't that same supplier and competitor executive post their response on the forum that offended him? Why wouldn't that same supplier who competes with my employer simply stick up for his own program and write positive commentary about it?
Now that I have vented, more than ever before I know the difference between a good competitor and a whining piece of s*** that prefers back door politics instead of competing on a level playing field!
On Sunday I received a message and then spoke by phone to the Chief Marketing Officer at one of my employer's leading competitors, and a competitor to the same company that is trying to exert undue influence against this ADM website using a car company's influence... The conversation was great... We discussed where each of us were going with online social networking, and despite being rabid competitors we had a civilized discussion and agreed upon what would be considered mutually appropriate and acceptable, and what would not... One of the issues we each agreed upon was not to try and use our customers and OEM contacts to get each other into trouble for aomething we write on a website like this one... How ironic... Within 48 hours the nastiest, dirtiest pool player in the auto industry tries to exert undue influence using manipulative statements made to a car campany and mutual customer.…

ed listing in the SERP would use the vehicle detail page as the destination URL. My request at the time was on behalf of the Ford Digital Advertising program and it was to create an application extension that would index the dealer's vehicle inventory detail pages to make it easier to generate such ads for specific vehicles... Looks like it took them awhile!
At any rate, I have used the tactic of specific Google Adwords listings for each vehicle (normally used) to save many ISM jobs during the recession... Because it absolutely works far better than you can imagine if you have not tried it before! If you need to sell more cars starting today, get to work and use your Google Adwords account to create individual ads for each used vehicle you want to sell.…
om beginning to end.
Most individuals are not 60 car per month salespeople and so are anxious to find and learn from those methods offering the best chance for career success. Unfortunately, many dealers choose not to adapt to more modern methods of selling.
Do you agree?
After all, we don't want our peers to sell blue shoes to a guy who ultimately gets kicked off his basketball team because they demand he wears white shoes!
60 cars per month! Wow! Where do you sell?
