ADM is a Professional Network, describe: "Why should anyone do business with you?"
We are the most unique dealership in the United States (Just cause Rob Fontano has a diner doesn't mean nothin) job is to get people to find it
"What will YOU contribute to the ADM Community?"
Got out of the service, went to buy a car, ended up in the business for 12 years. Got out and ran my own delivery service for 12 years (humm a pattern). Sold and moved north, out to dinner and the people at the next table started talking cars. You know what happened. Blood started to tingle, I butted in and 2 days later I was back in the business. Quickly figured out the place to be was on the internet. Asked lots of questions, read lots, made a you know what load of mistakes. Went through three dealerships. I am now the Director of Marketing and Internet for a solvent 62 year old dealership where the owner actually pays attention and supports the efforts of the internet dept. I'm no geek. I am challenged every day by technology. I'm a beach bum who can never be too tan. Loves his dog. Sucks at golf and plays anyway and LOVES the NY Football Giants!!!!

Why a Bad Review is GOOD and What to do with them!!!!

How many people have gotten a bad review? Yes you suck! There is somebody out there who’s going to say you suck. You don’t. You’re no better or no worse than the dealer, restaurant or hardware store down the street. I hope your better. But you are going to get a bad review. You cannot satisfy 100% of…

So here’s my story. I was working in a used car store perfectly happy being a start to finish one man internet dept. Through circumstances I ended up taking over the “Internet Dept.” for the entire

organization, Papa's Dodge Chrysler Jeep. We are under staffed under budgeted and the expectations are very

high. I know that sounds very familiar to you readers.…
