What will YOU contribute to the ADM Community?
I`ve been in auto Sales for 24 years.
Starting out on the floor in the "trenches" for quite a few years, eventually I was given an opportunity to become a Used Car Mgr/Buyer & honed my craft for several years, buying & selling on-line.

Here`s a funny story; Autotrader.com invited me to sit on a panel several years ago, as 1 of 5 successful Internet individuals. We sat in front of about 80 or so dealers that weren`t signed up with AutoTrader. It was set up in a sort of "town hall" meeting with the AutoTrader Reps walking around in the audience with microphones. Soooooooooooooooo here`s the funny part, I sat in as the 4th man in the line-up out of 5 & AutoTrader wants us to tell the audience a little about ourselves. So the first guy tells the group that "I`m so & so & I own 4 dealerships" & I`m leaning over looking down the line-up thinking, "Hmmmm... an actual Dealer/Owner is here", so the next guy proceeds to tell the group that, "I`m Bill Johnson & I own 2 dealerships" & I thought, "Geez, another owner now
I`m starting to feel a little nervous about being up there!~~lol. Okay now the 3rd guy in the line-up sitting right next to me introduces himself to the audience & says, "Good afternoon I`m Rick Darson & I own 5 dealerships"! I remember feeling embarrassed right about at this point, so now it`s time to introduce myself. I look down the table at all of the dealers & there was a moment of silence as they all stared back at me......... not really knowing what to say, because I was very surprised to be sitting up there with all of these Dealers/Owners, I turned to my mic & said to Lloyd Hecht(Our then AutoTrader Rep), "Hey Lloyd, are you sure I`m suppose to be up here? `Cause I don`t own any dealerships?!"!~ With that, the entire room & everyone on the panel burst into laughter! Now the fifth panelist, sitting to my right, whom seems to be around my age at the time & has been joking & having fun with me the whole time up there introduces himself.
I figured he was a Rep like me doing the Internet gig at his store. Well he starts out by saying "Sorry Ken... I`m Jim so & so & I own 2 dealerships"!!!~~ I turned to the mic & said, "Can somebody please tell me what the heck I`m doing up here with these guys?!"~ & the room broke into another huge burst of laughter. It was a very eventful experience that day & one that I enjoy sharing.


I`ve always attempted to take things to another level & with that, I became heavily involved with our websites, developing ways to expose our dealership on the `Net via videos. The idea of the videos was completely done on my own about 6 years ago. I spent hours,days & weeks trying to figure out what it takes to get the videos up & running perfectly on the Internet & am 100% completely self-taught! I have no formal training at all(geez..... maybe I should`ve went to college~lol)

All of our videos are produced & edited in our dealership without the assistance of any 3rd party vendors. Very effective both in cost & overall sales results.

Always like looking at Internet savvy dealerships website. They are hard to come by here in Michigan. Enjoy yourself at the Digital Dealer Conference. My, company, DealerCentric was at the last one in Vegas, but won't be making this one. If you get a free minute, take a look at our website. I am sure you would find our technology interesting.
