Hello Ralph... been some time (not sure where time goes but all is well here, hopefully same for you) 

I saw your recent video with Ryan G regarding Tier 4 marketing. Been away from the digital scene so long that I did not recognize that terminology in common use. (probably admitting my absence here) 

Is Tier 4 marketing new? Your idea? Are you promoting it with manufacturers?

Hanging in the wings,

Thank you for the connection, Ralph! I'm new here, as you can see. I'm looking to find more dealership clients to add to my roster.  I'm a voice talent with a pro studio, you've likely heard me before on national TV or radio.  Is there any way I can be of service to YOU?

Best regards,
