KISS to KICK -- A New Acronym for Today’s Workforce

For those with a tendency to make things more complicated than things really are “Keep It Simple, Stupid” served as a consistent concept that kept Advertising meetings from turning into Geek Speak aka Information Technology (IT) sessions. Instead of discussing advertising we would have been discussing pixels and code on web pages. However, with the advent of Big Data,…See More

The Shibuya Crossing of Your Dealership

The Shibuya Crossing holds the title of the world’s busiest intersection. Based in Tokyo, the intersection claims that more than 3,000 people cross in one traffic light cycle. A quiet, motionless countdown quickly consumes the street as a chaotic experience which some like to the equivalent of marbles falling into and then out of a box happens over and over again.The…See More

Fast vs First to Market

In a business where speed wins, first steps can lose. Reasoning being—the distinct possibility—like is the case in any race—that you could jump the gun. Sure, creating a market sounds exciting, but in today’s fragmented, isolated marketplace, it’s going to be tougher and tougher to do. Look at the advantages that Netflix secured in being first to market. All the content,…See More

What Dak’s Contract Means

Tom Brady makes $15 million per year. A few months ago Dak Prescott turned down $30 million a year. Financially speaking then he’s at least 2x the value or the player Brady.Not necessarily. Analytics matter in today’s competitive industries. Touchdowns. Interceptions. QBR. Percentage of completions. The numbers are endless, but let’s focus on percent of salary cap for a…See More

Cooking Google’s Golden Goose - What we Know of Google’s Behavior

SEO and SEM are used interchangeably by the novice marketer and the unknowing client. SEM and PPC are used interchangeably by the adept agency and experienced client-side marketer.This separation of church and state is starting to blend. It used to be that organic and paid search were undeniably, uniquely different. Certainly, that was one key to Google's success, but…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!
