While at work I received a text message from a buddy of mine with the new Google Maps App URL. I immediately downloaded the app and began to play around with it.  Currently my cell phone service is…Continue

gmail STIFF ARMS your email marketing campaigns

And just like that... all your emails fall into the "promotions" box. That's right... the promotion box. The same box that will soon land all your email blast, your special offers, and anything else sales related that you wanted to get across to your customers. Google just said - "ACCESS DENIED" Now what? I…See More

"The local PATCH here does a great job of neighborhood news (like the wildlife people catching a Crocodile where there should only be alligators). One of the best LIKES I have on facebook, even though we can't really tie our Live Chat business…"

Leveraging Social Media in your CRM | Attention to Detail

Leveraging Social Media in your CRM | Attention to DetailWe are currently using iMagic Lab in our dealer group and they offer a great feature that I am not sure many car dealers use or understand. Now a days, CRM's have the ability to take the customers email address and scan numerous social media and websites to find them. They may be on facebook or amazon. With this information you can find any hobbies, photos, and other things people like to post.This is some GOOD CIA type Stuff!!But if used…See More

The Previous Customer

How many times have you heard that phrase? I know I hear it every day. The now reoccurring phrase... "Mr. Jones is NOT an Internet customer, he is Harry's previous customer! You're STEALING!"In today's world of automotive sales the customers are changing like the business is itself. Waaaay back when, before the Internet came to the auto industry, customers would read a newspaper, talk to their neighbor who may have purchased a vehicle from you, stop in with calling or emailing, speak to a…See More

Cars.com Email Blast... | Question by Martin Damato

Posted on July 16, 2013 at 3:25pm 1 Comment

Hello everyone. I was recently approached by a cars.com rep who had a new feature in a form of an email blast. They told me for a certain price, they can contact 10,000 customers that were interested in a manufacturer I selected.

I had a question at first that went unanswered...

Where are you getting these customers and email addresses?

My initial thought was that cars.com is pulling every prospect that submitted a lead on their website and basically charging me to send…

Being in the automotive industry for some time now, nearly 8 years, I remembered back to the days when I first started. I was 20 years old, fresh out of college, trying to take over the world - one phone call at a time. The company I was with at the time, didn't have the luxury of having the finer things that other automotive companies had. We had a pad, paper, and IF our website company offered a FREE CRM, we had that too.   A few years went by, I saw myself begin to progressive and…
