Doug Davis commented on Brian Pasch's blog post Challenging Charles Kim From TrueCar.com And His Oedipus Complex
"And TrueCar's only interest is to be a consumer advocate?  Their sole purpose is to protect and serve?  They want to protect our Mothers against the evil car dealers?  They are in this for a profit at the dealerships expense."

Doug Davis commented on Ralph Paglia's blog post TrueCar Consumer Incentive to Report Dealer Sales
"It needs the disclaimer: not available in Florida, Colorado or Kansas  ....more to come."

Doug Davis replied to Charles Kim's discussion Is ADM is a biased, unfair, hostile forum servicing a minority agenda?
"Ralph,  I underestimated the size of the ADM community.  I have noticed friends that I have met on other internet related sites. "

Doug Davis replied to Charles Kim's discussion Is ADM is a biased, unfair, hostile forum servicing a minority agenda?
"Tim, do you remember Y2K?  Businesses were selling a product, computer protection, that wasn't needed and profiting handsomely. They purchased it out of ignorance which is the same reason that the "old school" dealerships are…"

Doug Davis replied to Charles Kim's discussion Is ADM is a biased, unfair, hostile forum servicing a minority agenda?
"Tim, show me the ROI report with you social media on it.   I could spend an afternoon at the mall, introducing myself, and sell more cars. I'm a consultant.  I teach dealerships how to market their vehicles over the internet and…"

Doug Davis replied to Charles Kim's discussion Is ADM is a biased, unfair, hostile forum servicing a minority agenda?
"Tim, as far as his perception being his reality, his reality is guided only by personal gain. Social Media is not a marketing tool.  It is a public relations tool.  Consultants go after the internet departments because they have much…"

Doug Davis replied to Charles Kim's discussion Is ADM is a biased, unfair, hostile forum servicing a minority agenda?
"On a smaller scale, I have asked customers to show me how they arrived at my vehicle.  I saw the same basic search strategy.  I used it as a closing tool. Dealers with the "click for price" are just setting themselves up for a…"

Doug Davis replied to Charles Kim's discussion Is ADM is a biased, unfair, hostile forum servicing a minority agenda?
"Philip, Absolutely!  92% of customers shop the internet before going into a store.  They spend an average of 18 to 19 hours doing research.  They want to know what vehicle fits their needs and budget.  Once they select the…"

Doug Davis replied to Charles Kim's discussion Is ADM is a biased, unfair, hostile forum servicing a minority agenda?
"Tom, I have had vendors that I didn't enjoy spending time with.  None of them, however; was anti dealership.  You lay down with snakes expect to get bitten. Honestly, I don't care where the money is made as long as we make…"

Doug Davis replied to Charles Kim's discussion Is ADM is a biased, unfair, hostile forum servicing a minority agenda?
"We have been involved with the internet for nearly a decade and the majority of dealers don't have a clue.  The majority of them don't come to sites like ADM.  The few that do, know that they don't need TrueCar or any…"
Dec 10, 2011
Doug Davis commented on Keith Shetterly's blog post Man-Up, or Woman-Up: Is TrueCar Good?
"Hell No!"
Dec 10, 2011
Doug Davis replied to Charles Kim's discussion Is ADM is a biased, unfair, hostile forum servicing a minority agenda?
"Matthew, why do you have to buy leads from anyone?  Learn how to market your vehicles properly and you won't have to."
Dec 9, 2011
Doug Davis replied to Charles Kim's discussion Is ADM is a biased, unfair, hostile forum servicing a minority agenda?
"Charles, you post on an Automotive site representing a parasitic company that is not in the best interest of dealerships and expect to be well received? There are too many dealers, so they should sign up with TrueCar to hasten more departures? If…"

Doug Davis commented on Joe Webb's blog post The Probability of Accountability
""There are systems out there (PBX boxes, call monitoring/recording software) that can increase the likelihood that accountability will become part of your showroom (and management) process." Most managers spend the majority of their time…"
Dec 5, 2011
Doug Davis replied to Chip King's discussion 1 in 4 Sales Calls going unanswered?
"Remember the horror stories dealing with response times, customers only getting automated responses, etc.?  It's sad but nothing has really changed.  We have been in the Internet business for a decade and the majority of dealers still…"
