ADM is a Professional Network, describe YOUR Value Proposition... "Why should anyone do business with you?"
I grew up in the Automotive Retail business as my Dad was a Chevrolet Dealer and have spent my entire adult career in the automotive sector from fixed operations, sales and management to marketing, Public Relations, New Media Technology and Social and Behavioral Marketing.
My firm POTRATZ has some of the best talent in the country to ensure our dealers reach new levels of profits through one integrated approach to advertising and marketing. We combine traditional and new media advertising to accomplish the goals at a much lower cost per sale in the front end and backend. Our dealers are our best story tellers of how we are different than any other firm in the country.
See what they have to say and then let's talk
What will YOU contribute to the ADM Community?
I have been in the automotive business my entire life and what drives me is the challenge to be do more, learn more, be an problem solver for our dealers, and provide solutions for our dealers to surpass all goals. I am not as concerned with how our dealers perform compared to other local dealers but how our dealers over perform on a national level.
