Salesperson Branded Presence: Who's the Best?

We've been watching this growing over the last few years and now it seems to be hitting a tipping point. We're even starting to get inquiries and frankly we don't know where to send them. Who's the best? Who have you or someone you know used who helps individuals at dealerships brand themselves properly?See More

Content is Important, but there's More to SEO than Building Pages

I've been pretty torn over the last few months. On one hand, I'm so pleased to see that dealers (and even some vendors) are really starting to embrace building content pages on their website. On the other hand, I'm concerned that many companies are starting to promote building these pages as their complete SEO strategy.…See More

Automotive Digital Marketing Resources

There is an abundance of information out there regarding automotive digital marketing. The challenge is in sifting though the high-quality content and the content that is geared strictly towards promoting a vendor's products.

The Automotive Digital Marketing Network is one of the best out there. Ralph has put together one of the strongest networks in the automotive sector, bringing vendors and dealers together to share ideas.

I post here, DrivingSales, DealerElite, and AutomotiveSEO.

Why Does Automotive Social Media Still Suck?

Posted on June 17, 2015 at 1:58am 0 Comments

When we first built our company in 2013, we had a big fear. It was a sense of urgency that drove us to make aggressive moves, hire talented people when we didn't have the revenue to support them, and drink lots of coffee to stay ahead of the competition. The fear came from the certainty that automotive social…

Calling Out the Vendor Who Said Links Don't Work for SEO...

Posted on June 14, 2015 at 3:59am 10 Comments

I don't enjoy calling out vendors. It's something that I think is unprofessional in most situations. Sometimes, when a vendor is truly hurting the automotive industry, it must be done and I have to do that today.

We have a client being hounded. This other vendor has been telling them that…

The Cliche of Dealer SEO and Analogies to Support it

Posted on May 19, 2015 at 12:35pm 0 Comments

Pulse rates are different depending on what artery you check and what method you use. Checking someone's carotid artery by hand can yield a slightly different result than taking it with a machine through the brachial artery. The same thing happens in the car business, which is why I like to talk to…

Thanks J.D.!  Ralph spent a good deal of effort last night on the phone with me getting me reinstated, and from what a novice IT guy like me could tell, he also arrived at another possibility of how it could have happened.  But, "All's well that ends well."  However, it is a little troubling, but totally believable, that somebody out there hates me.  Come to think of it, it's really not that troubling!
