Are You Ready for Google Adwords Changes Coming July 22?

Finding more Money? As Easy as Pie

Posted on June 14, 2012 at 6:30am 0 Comments

It is about the Money and it's inevitable.

After a Moneyball presentation an internet director will come up to me and say, "I know the internet will work, but I can't convince my general manager or owner to spend the money."

To which I reply, "You have two choices." Digital World

You can join an organization that already gets this.  Many do.  Many don't, but it is an alternative.

Or you can make the compelling argument a middle manager must make in this new digital…

Can You Teach an Old Artist New Tricks?

Posted on April 25, 2012 at 3:20pm 0 Comments

Some people in the car business haven’t seen this year’s Academy Award Winner for Best Movie--The Artist. 

As the car business comes back we have to do more with less.  As priorities go watching a silent movie--no matter how acclaimed--isn’t necessarily high on the list. 

Recently though I found the time on an 8-hour transatlantic flight.  As I watched, the parallels between Hollywood in the late 1920’s and the automotive industry in the late 2000’s were remarkable.  The light…

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!
