"Scott lived what he preached and his presence in Social Media is branded as much to him as it is/was to Ford. His future is whatever he wishes it to be given the legions of friends that will surely follow him wherever he goes and in whatever he…"

ADM is a Professional Network, describe YOUR Value Proposition... "Why should anyone do business with you?"
Ad Agency Online, L.L.C. is a national network of independent affiliated automotive advertising agencies, production partners and select technology and service vendors that share our vision to "blur the line between the real and the virtual world."

Our affiliated automotive advertising agencies and dealer/vendor clients are linked by our proprietary online communication / distribution system that leverages our resources to provide more for less.

Our services include radio, T.V. and print production - conventional and digital - media analysis and placement, public relations, marketing, key vendor selection, facility evaluation, staffing solutions, P&L analysis and dealer acquisition and disposition.

We specialize in the technology sector with vendor clients that represent cutting edge technologies and applications that are not yet in the mainstream. Our automotive advertising resource / networking portal - http://AdAgencyOnline.Net - features a blog talk radio station - WAAOL, All Automotive Advertising News All The Time - with daily vendor reviews and industry news.
What will YOU contribute to the ADM Community?
I spent 25+ years as a General Manager and then a Dealer Principal before opening Ad Agency Online, L.L.C. in 2001. My role within my organization is that of "Dealer Coach/Consultant" in evaluating selling systems, processes and key vendor selections for my dealer clients. As the author of two books relating to my experiences in the Automotive Industry, including one entitled "How To Sell A Car," I enjoy a reputation as a "Car guy who specializes in advertising, rather that an Ad guy who specializes in the automobile industry."

Our free automotive advertising resource/networking portal - - is an extension of our services that hosts a blog talk radio station - WAAOL, All Automotive Advertising News All The Time - an online Dealer 20+ Group, free posted creative and featured "preferred vendors" that represent cutting edge automotive advertising technologies and applications for consideration by our affiliated independent automotive advertising agencies, dealer clients and site visitors.

We enjoy unique access to decision makers in the auto industry provided by our online community that extends from the auto dealer and vendor level to the O.E.M's. As a result, we have recently accepted both reseller and agency of record relationships with several auto industry vendors to compliment our auto dealer and automotive advertising agency relationships; including many members of ADM. Our ability to "bridge the gap between buyers and sellers" in the automotive vertical has provided many shared opportunities for our varied clients.

I recently integrated my background in commercial real estate with my auto industry roots to form a division of Colliers Wood-Fay Real Estate servicing the auto industry - Colliers Automotive Real Estate Services, (C.A.R.S.), with an international presence. We have exclusive access to O.E.M. properties for disposition and international investors interested in dealer acquisition.

Online Automobile Sales Are Only One Generation Away And They Are Already Planning Their Purchases!

Posted on May 3, 2014 at 5:50pm 0 Comments

Consumers always have and always will seek the path of least resistance to get the best deal they can when they purchase a new or pre-owned vehicle; and you can't blame them.  Similarly, it is understandable that auto dealers always have and always will try to define what the best deal is for their customers; and it typically includes preserving a fair profit.  Unfortunately, their objectives aren't always weighted the same; even though they should be.

Today's internet educated…

Thank you Philip! Your insight is welcome and appreciated. CarDoll has been in the works for over 2 years now. As the average age of US retail salespeople grows younger, they tend to "tune-out" some of the talking heads that have dominated the training industry for years. My message is consistent with the need for strong process and empathy for the customer. My blog articles are clear and concise.

I do happen to flaunt my sexuality, and I apologize I offend some. The first step in the selling process is to get someone's attention. Apparently that has worked.  My message is getting through. And the market of new retail professionals are hungry to hear it delivered.

I also strongly support women entering the industry and will make that a strong element as we continue to grow.

Lastly, I admire your work and long-standing reputation within the industry. Keep up the good work, Philip! You're right, that's what friends are for!

Hi Phil, I'm "out in the digital world" looking for ways to validate the value proposition for Liquid Autos.  To do this, I'm trying to connect with thought leaders in the automotive dealer space. Of course, you're one!  I have product mock-ups you haven't seen, and am requesting utterly frank feedback. Can we schedule a Skype call?
