"Great Topic and so true. Issue is in knowing what to do. Even answering the customer's question does not automatically put the customer in your showroom. I would say that more leads are sent in without a specific question being asked by the…"

Chasing Your Tail or Serve, Serve, Serve the Customer

As we chase customers, we are starting to chase our tails.Not smarter than the average pup or kitten that wants to catch up to a non-achievable experience. We want leads. We want form fills. And to be fair, unlike our animal brethren we think we know what we would do if we catch one.However, it’s precisely the behavior that occurs when we land…See More

Jim,

It is great to see you here... I am sitting in the Louis Armstrong New Orleans Airport as I depart the 2009 NADA Convention and checking in on the happenings at ADM is a great way to feel useful while I wait to board my flight!

On behalf of both myself, and the rest of the 1,900+ member ADM family, welcome to our online community, best practices exchange, car guy (unisex) debate club and file sharing repository... We are very happy to see you have joined our community of automotive Internet sales and marketing professionals.

Please take a moment to share some more information about yourself and your professional role. More information website links, some photos, videos and maybe a few blog postings with PPT, XLS, DOC and PDF files attached are particularly welcome. And of course we all love to see and listen to your music, photo and video uploads. We are paying extra hosting fees for additional server storage capacity and any valuable content you upload to make use of it is appreciated.

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

VERY IMPORTANT - All of us at ADM very much appreciate that you took the time to complete your member profile section by uploading a photo of yourself. 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 that you'll get more out of ADM when members see that you have uploaded a profile photo!

I love seeing more and more automotive professionals and auto industry colleagues like yourself join the ADM community... When I checked the membership section a moment ago, I was pleasantly surprised to see that as of today, and thanks to your enrollment we are now up to over 1,945 automotive sales and marketing professionals who have joined the ADM Community... With help from automotive marketing professionals like yourself, we broke the 1,000 member mark on the 4th of July, 2008!

We get an amazing amount of grass roots support from all levels within the auto industry... Makes the aggravation of flying around the country with a guy sitting next to me sticking his elbow into my ribs, somehow worth it!

One of the greatest features that ADM provides is that you have full access to your very own blog web site within your personal profile section (here) of the ADM community. You can also upload your Outlook Contacts list or import your web based email lists to invite new members who will be connected to your profile. 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!
