7 years ago, I wandered into the local Cadillac Dealer fresh from my one year stint at a Ford Dealership, and applied for a sales. After a rather lengthy 2 hour interview, or should I say chest thumping brag session of how great the dealership was from the GSM.....I was hired. Proudly I had moved into the Luxury car market place and I was ready!

After my first week of sitting around and watching the 3 piece suited senior sales people sit at there desk's all day long and sell a…

Jeff, I have lived the past 28 years with a rule that i drive what I sell, and it has been one of the best principles I have lived up to in helping me become more successful and in building better relationships... No matter what you sell, people have more respect for professionals that use the products they recommend themselves... Drink your own Kool-Aide is what I say!!!

I typically get more than 20 MPG in the Caddy, but I also drive it too fast and am too heavy on the gas pedal to get much more than that... I just love the way the car drives when you push it and that Direct Injection engine makes such sweet sounds when you tromp on it! I almost got the CTS+4 but in some ways like the way it handles with induced oversteer. There are not too many American cars around that you can use the throttle to steer with in tight, winding roads, but the CTS is a blast!

Welcome to ADM,

I am confident that we have many current and pending friends that would appreciate your insights into some of the forums that have been posted, including my own. As a former car dealer turned consultant I have learned to value the input of "front line car guys/gals" above all others so please add your reply and get ready to listen, learn and hopefully teach. After all, what are friends for!

We want to help you get more out being an ADM member...

It would be greatly appreciated and a very nice gesture to our community if you would take the time to upload a profile photo so our ADM members can associate an image, a face, a real human being with your name and ADM profile... I guarantee that you will get more out of ADM if people see you have uploaded a photo of yourself into your profile!

Go ahead, do it right now... Don't worry about what it looks like, as long as it looks like you, even on a bad day, our ADM members will know that you are a sincere and genuine person.

Thank you....

Welcome aboard! It is great to see you here... I am in my home office working on some pretty boring stuff, and despite the fact that I should be doing something else, like expense reports, I just had to go online to see if there were any new Automotive Digital Marketing Group members for me to welcome.

I found out that I am way behind in greeting new ADM members.... Toil, Toil, Trouble and Boil! Both myself, and the rest of the 980+ member ADM family are happy to see you have joined our professional community.

Please take a moment to share some more information about yourself and your professional role. Links, blog postings, photos and videos are all appreciated.

Please note that you can upload documents into any blog post or forum discussion for ADM members to download. There are already hundreds of PowerPoints, Excel Spreadsheets, Word Doc's, PDF files and more... We would be thrilled to get you to upload a few of yours to share with the community.

It would be very nice if you would take the time to upload a profile photo so our ADM members can put a face with your name... I guarantee that you will get more out of ADM if people see you have uploaded a profile photo!

I love seeing yet another automotive professional and industry colleague like yourself join the ADM community... When I checked the membership section a moment ago, I was pleasantly surprised to see that we are now up to over 935 automotive sales and marketing professionals who have joined the ADM Community!

Amazing support from an amazing industry... Makes the aggravation of flying around the country with a guy sitting next to me who keeps sticking his elbow into my ribs, somehow worth it!

Thanks for helping us get to this critical mass of over 900 members. I am thrilled and delighted to see that you have joined our community... Welcome and THANK YOU!

We are looking forward to any best practices, guidance, tactics, files, photos and videos you are willing to share with us.

Also, you have full access to your very own blog web site within this community, so feel free to get into the swing of things and use this community as a means of sharing with associates, customers, clients and friends!
