Thanks for the invite Ralph! Were looking to put together a mobile marketing program that will change the way dealers think about mobile. Also 5% of the net sales will go to benefit American Vets. Our revised website will be completed next week and will have more detail on what we do. 

Thanks again!

I thought I had friends on here and a profile picture. Was there a refresh or something?

At 10:32am on February 22, 2013, Marc Fishman said…

Hey Ralph. Big fan, but you know that. Would love if you could spread the love a bit our way. Our first official blog debuted this morning! We did a study of leads generated in January, and found 20% of customer base say 30 or more leads. Given the dip in sales and leads we found some dealers saw that month, we thought it was a great thing to discuss!

At 6:50pm on February 19, 2013, Thomas Aldrich said…

Ralph- love your articles.  I started in the car business in San Diego...great to see someone else come out of our little bubble of SD and make it in automotive.

I love your site and get a choke full of information I use for my articles but seriously Ralph, auto-playing music on your site is a no, no! Especially when we are doing research and have to keep quiet. :)
