"Jeff, Thanks for returning my call.  You're one of those guys I could easily spend an evening with "working out the problems of the world" over the cocktails of our choice.  Maybe someday, huh!  "

Brian Bennington commented on Jeffery Sterns's blog post Why Chat is Becoming More Popular for Car Shoppers
"Dear Mike, I'm sincerely sorry you were offended by my comments, namely noting your misspelling of millennials.  Rereading what I wrote, I'd be just as angry with me about it as you are.  It was a cheap shot and I regret writing…"

"Thanks Jeff, for trying to answer my "adores texting" question.  (I think my last comments were posted prior to my checking the site for your recent comments, thus we overlapped.)  As to your explanation, while it's a tad…"

Brian Bennington commented on Jeffery Sterns's blog post Why Chat is Becoming More Popular for Car Shoppers
"Sorry Mr Mike Maggs, I went to your website and didn't see a thing about "what is being said about consumers, especially Millennials, and how they prefer texting to other means of communication."  (Of note, I'd suggest that…"

Brian Bennington commented on Jeffery Sterns's blog post Why Chat is Becoming More Popular for Car Shoppers
"Hey Jeff, I always read you even though my "Inner sales rep" tells me there's one hell of a lot of easier and more effective ways to make sales than through remote-controlled off-site chat.  But, I do respect your efforts and…"

"Jeez Ralph, I'm sorry to read our omnipotent government has targeted you for, what sounds like, one of their overly zealous and mercilessly intimidating investigations.  Be careful.  They've been known to take everything their…"

How Dealers Can Use Social Media at the Dealership

"So you agree, JD, that a picture is worth a thousand words?  Not only do they work on social media, they make a powerful impact in the one-on-one sales presentation.  I learned that long before I sold my first car, and shot a photo of…"

Brian Bennington commented on Justin Grubb's blog post Hand-raiser leads and why I love them.
"Congratulations Justin. A commendable first post.  However, I wasn't familiar with "Hand Raiser leads" and a more thorough explanation of exactly what they are, or at least how you interpret the term, would have been a nice…"

Brian Bennington commented on Jeffery Sterns's blog post Are You Available When Your Customers Are?
"While I understand the principle of 24 hour chat with new "will call anytime night or day" customers, I'm inclined to believe it could be most effective handled internally by the dealership.  Honestly, I'd really like to…"

Brian Bennington commented on Anne Fleming's blog post Car Sellers Refine Pitch to Women
"A nice thought provoker, Anne, but the trend for women to have more input (decision making power) was a cultural change that began "breathing" in the '50s, and gained a life of its own during the 60s and the 70s.   And, it…"

Brian Bennington commented on Richard Holland's blog post Is Instant Customer Feedback In Your Future?
"Interesting post, Richard.  Regardless of the "rabbit" Fred Diaz pulls out of his hat to do this, experience leads me to believe the solution to this is middle management's participation, in both the sales and service…"

Brian Bennington commented on CDK Global's blog post What Your Dealership Needs to Know About the Google Pigeon Update
"In answer to this blog's final question, "Will this bird fly?", my response has to be, "Compared to what"?  Once upon a time nearly 20 years ago, I worked with a great bunch of guys at Cobalt eager to help when I…"

Sorry for the rant but it needed to be said. RE: Vendor Education

"Nice post, J.D.  Your heart is definitely in the right place.  While I believe "rants" aren't the most constructive way to communicate ideas, instructions, complaints, etc., I'd hardly describe your "mobile…"

ADM is a Professional Network, describe YOUR Value Proposition... "Why should anyone do business with you?"
I'll make more money for them then I'll cost them, and I'll never once mention a selling price or utilize any type of giveaways, such as coupons, discount cards, etc.
What will YOU contribute to the ADM Community?
Extensive background in developing and producing highly personalized customer follow-up and referral enhancement, first for myself for 20+ years and then for the reps and management of a small group of elite SoCal dealerships for 20+ years. Prior to that, I gained notoriety as a Limerick Poet and I'm credited with such classics as "I once knew a man from Nantucket" among many others. My one sentence business description "elevator speech" is: "We believe everyone enjoys hearing nice things said to them, and we genuinely love helping people say them."

Brian,

I am so happy we didn't lose you and your excellent participation in the ADMPC... It is important that we get different opinions and perspectives, because it is the debate, the discussions and the arguments in favor of various positions that makes this a PROFESSIONAL network first, and a social network second. Not all of us may always agree with your comments and perspectives, but that is EXACTLY why your contributions are so valuable to this community. Thank you for all that you do to keep commentary lively and far from becoming dull.
