Ralph,

   I have just moved from a Ford dealership, to a Chevy/GMC/Buick/Cadillac store. I was assigned the duty of trying to add some lead source companies, to help generate more internet business.  I was hired to specifically help build up the Internet Department, in Picayune, Ms.  What do you suggest? I appreciate the invite, and look forward to learn many new strategies, towards the road to success.  

Thank you,

Kevin

Hey Ralph!  Thanks for adding me here. I'm excited about what's in store for me on ADM.

At 6:29am on August 2, 2014, Brian Bennington said…

Thanks Ralph! It's good to be back, even though I was only "gone" for four days.  I was surprised to see your "friend request" this early on a Saturday morning.  Considering this is the end of my Friday work day, your message made a nice finish, especially with a little Eric Burdon & The Animals as background to my writing you.  By the way, your help earlier this week was much appreciated!

Thanks Ralph.  But I think the complaint might be coming from one person.  I represent a company not just a person.  Is that a problem?
