ADM is a Professional Network, describe YOUR Value Proposition... "Why should anyone do business with you?"
I have an extensive background as a BDC/Internet Manager. I embrace new technology that assists us with communicating with our customers and have worked with most all CRM tools.
What will YOU contribute to the ADM Community?
I am passionate about BDC. Using your CRM tool correctly to maximize opportunities is what its all about. Too often we don't put customer data into the CRM which does not allow for smarter marketing decisions down the road. Ironically the TOP 3 lead sources in most dealers CRM tool are Unknown, Drive By or Other. Using smart technology to work smarter is what I am all about.
