Service is the New Sales

Posted on July 6, 2009 at 7:42am 0 Comments

7-6-09 Apex, NC



If you think about it, a fixed operation (service) has to drive every sale for both the dealership and the customer. The days are long gone when the customer left with a vehicle, never came back and we simply didn’t care. We’d just go get another one. With sales way down in the car business, June was considered a sales “success” because numbers were just plain bad instead of horrific; these still are times for the automotive record books. The last time the car… Continue

Weapons of Mess Disruption

Posted on June 14, 2009 at 11:51am 0 Comments

Apex, NC 6-14-09.



Here it is, the last two weeks of the first quarter. July is coming fast. Yes I know times are tough. Gas prices are up. Dealerships are more than challenged with day- to- day issues, so many things coming and going. Lost your focus yet? Think about it.



If you are not 100% mentally present at work, completely focused on your job, you will lose buyers. People buy vehicles every day regardless of the economy and they are not at your store for the fresh… Continue

Requiem for a Heavyweight

Posted on June 2, 2009 at 4:27am 0 Comments

Flint, MI… 6-01-09

When Dinah Shore sang “See the USA in a Chevrolet”, GM was rolling solidly on all four wheels; over 600,000 were employed globally, and they had a fat 51% market share. Now, GM stock is the price of a newspaper and soon to go away, market share is 21%, and when things shake down, only about 40, 000 people will be GM employees world-wide. Being in the broken heart of the GM bankruptcy this week and being surrounded by a very somber state of Michigan is very tough to take.… Continue

Automotive Virtual Reality

Yesterday afternoon, I received a call from a automotive job candidate. This candidate was from out of state and had 12 years of experience. She now found herself on the outside looking in. I get a lot of these referrals; mostly, they come from managers I have done business with in the past. My contacts (connects) know I will listen and help the candidates who call. As I assessed her situation over the phone, I again gave my "you need to become a social media junkie"… Continue

Detroit Idle Thoughts

Very quietly, every Big Three medical plan has changed. Now there is less coverage and more cost.



RUN don't walk to a Chrysler or General Motors dealership. They are now customer heaven. Work out a good deal that is fair to the store and to you. There have never been better deals.



If you work in or with the auto industry, you are not dreaming. It is a low grade nightmare that is not ending for awhile.



Yes Virginia, there is indeed… Continue

Join Automotive Digital Marketing Professional Community

Jim,

It is great to see you have joined ADM... I am in my home office in Gilbert, AZ getting ready for my trip to Los Angeles tomorrow and wanted to check in on the happenings at ADM. This is a great distraction from the writer's block that just hit me while working on a car company proposal... And, I already checked in online for my SWA boarding pass (A16 Yes!)...

On behalf of both myself, and the rest of the over 2,000 member ADM family, welcome to our online community, best practices exchange, car guy (unisex) debate club, networking resource 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.

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 2,100 automotive sales and marketing professionals who have joined the ADM Community... ADM was created on January 6, 2008 and 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!
