I have been in the Automotive industry since 1981. Started off as a used car saleswoman at 16. I have worked every aspect of the business and now am the IT Director for 13 locations. I have been on the IT side of things for the past 13 years here at the #1 Automotive chain in San Antonio. Really looking forward to moving us into the Social networking side of digital advertising. What an adventure this is going to be. Glad to be a part of this community. Namaste
CAR DEALER or OEM Website you recommend (ie; www.MelloyNissan.com)
We just start up our ADP social media package and appreciated your advice. I will keep in touch with any valuable information we stumble upon and would welcome your feedback on how your campaign is performing.
I work for Folsom Chevrolet as the Internet SEO/SEM Coordinator. We were approached by ADP about using their Social Media Advertising package and realized that it appears you are currently using it already. I would like to pick your brain about a few things and to get your overall opinion of the service.
Thanks for the add, Elizabeth. I see you will be attending the Digital Dealer conference. If you get the chance, please check out my session on Tuesday called "Selection, Hiring, Orientation and Training for the Internet Department".
Welcome to the ADM Professional Community!
It is great to see you finally showed up here on ADM! Thank you for participating in what is simply THE BEST online resource in the automotive industry for professionals who are responsible for digital marketing of any type.
I just got back to my home here in Gilbert, AZ after a week of working with car companies in Detroit, and I am trying to figure out how to get from Phoenix to DC for a German car company, then to Providence to meet with my home team, and then to LA for an Asian Car Company, and (hopefully) back home to Phoenix Sky Harbor in 5 days... Anyways, despite the fact that I should be doing something else, like expense reports, proposals that are due and taking the dogs for a walk, I just had to go online to see if there were any new ADM Professional Community members that I should personally welcome... When I did... Shazam! There you were, one of several new(er) ADM Professionals that I consider very special and who should be properly welcomed to our little community of 2,700+ people who peddle metal using the web. (about time, huh?)
On behalf of both myself, and the rest of the 2,700+ member ADM Community, welcome to our online information exchange and file sharing repository... We are very happy that you have joined our community of automotive marketing, advertising and sales professionals.
IMPORTANT: Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and "right click" on the email address (in Outlook), then select "Add To Outlook Contacts" to save in your address book... Otherwise, messages from ADM will end up in your "Junk Mail" folder. If you look in your Junk Mail folder and find a message from ADM, Right Click on the message, select "Junk Mail" and then select "Add Sender's Domain to Safe Sender List" so that you will get your notifications, message alerts, invites, etc.
Please take a moment to share some more information about your current and previous professional roles. We would love to see more website links from you, and some blog postings with PPT, XLS, DOC and PDF files attached are particularly welcome. You can also upload or attach files and photos, or embed video clips into any ADM Forum posts you create, or respond to... We would all (well, most of us) love to see and listen to your music, automotive related photos and car business related videos. Because of our advertisers, I am able to pay for additional server storage capacity for ADM members to upload and have access to over a terabyte of valuable content. So, any useful files you upload to take advantage of all this extra capacity, and share with your ADM professional colleagues is appreciated.
VERY IMPORTANT - All of us at ADM very much appreciate that you took the time to complete your profile section by uploading a photo showing your face. Most ADM members would like to put a face with your name and profile... Based on what I have seen since starting the ADM Professional Community at the beginning of 2008, I can promise you that you'll get more out of ADM when other members see that you have uploaded a profile photo!
One of the greatest features that ADM provides is full un-moderated, unlimited access to your very own blog web site publishing tools within your personal profile section (here) of the ADM community. So feel free to get into the swing of things and use this website and the resources you get at no extra cost (because the ads here pay for them), as a means of sharing information, files, updates, proposals, photos, videos, etc.with your associates, customers, clients and friends!
