Previous General Manager for Ford dealership now working for Ford Digital Marketing to try and help Dealers drive more business to their showrooms more efficiently. After leaving the retail side, I knew that I still wanted to be involved in this wonderful business!! I have grown up loving Ford and Dealers so I view this opportunity with Ford Digital Marketing as the perfect fit for me.
CAR DEALER or OEM Website you recommend (ie; www.MelloyNissan.com)
Wow!!! I am spending more time working for Ford than any of the other OEM's and we are really being diligent about putting together program features that will provide FLM dealers with the ability to sell more vehicles while spending less money on marketing and advertising. The Ford and Lincoln Mercury Digital Advertising Program for Dealers is a true financial partnership between Ford and ADP... My partner at Ford, Mr. Todd Stainbrook, and I have been working closely for over a year to bring together components of digital marketing and advertisintg which will allow dealers to recude expenses while getting their marketing and promotional messages to more consumers. When you get a chance, visit www.FLMdigital.com and www.FordDigital.com to see some multimedia ad examples. Our program is featured within the FMCdealer.com portal and we have executive sponsorship from some high ranking Ford officials... I am not sure if Mr. Mulaley knows anything about what we are doing, but the dealers who have participated so far have seen increased sales results and swear by the program. We are certainly not perfect, and we are breaking ground by doing things for Ford and LM dealers that have never been done before... Like negotiating national pricing through Ford on locally geotargeted online ad network placements... and more. We have performance based pricing so that if the advertising doesn't work, the dealers don't pay more than a basic monthly admin fee. Anyways, I will be in Dearborn all this coming week working at Ford's Regent Court facilities.
This automotivedigitalmarketing.com network is a wealth of information... If it helps, http://www.autodealerdigital.com (my links site) has some of my sales tools in .pdf / ppt / images and links to digital examples for dealers to review.
This is great time to be in Digital Marketing / Digital Advertising... Good Luck!
Have you looked into mobile solutions before? We are a mobile technology development firm here in Chicago, and have some rather unique solutions to drive traffic through the mobile phone. I would love to discuss at some point. You can email me at Evan@ViralMesh.com or call my office at 312.752.4348 ext 3. Thanks!
I join you in appreciating the opportunities made available via ADP and professionals like Ralph. I see the results of our products in action daily and I still can't get over how effective the automation end of ADP's Digital Marketing Solutions are.
It is great to see you here... I just arrived at the Hyatt Regency O'Hare and am preparing to go on stage tomorrow as one o the eatured speakers at the Kelley Blue Book eNetwork Brunch.
And, despite the fact that I should be doing something else, like getting ready for bed, I just had to go online to see if there were any new Automotive Digital Marketing Group members for me to welcome.
Both myself, and the rest of the 1,400+ member ADM family are happy to see you have joined our professional community.

VERY IMPORTANT - All of us at ADM would very much appreciate it if you could take the time to edit your profile section and upload a photo of yoursel. Most ADM members would like to put a face with your name and profile...

I love seeing automotive professionals and my 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 1,400 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!
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!
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 your section of the ADM community, so feel free to get into the swing of things and use this website and the resources you have access to as a means of sharing with associates, customers, clients and friends!
I wondered where you ended up. See you at the KBB Brunch tomorrow
