Ralph,  Good to see you're active again.  Hope AutoCon was everything you anticipated and more.  I'm sure you'll do some "high points" from it and, like many ADM members are, I'm looking forward to them.

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! http://www.tradeinvelocity.com/the-numbers-are-in-leading-the-pack-in-leads/

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.

Ralph,

Thank you for the welcome to the ADM Community. Look forward to contributing and learning from the group.

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. :)

Hey Ralph, cool article on CNN about "Digital Natives" I shared via Linked In but wanted to make sure you saw it.  Gets the marketing mind working this morning doesn't it? "What does it mean to be a digital native?"

Ralph,

Great editorial on the mobile marketing/shopping behaviors by smart phone users for travel/auto and restaurants. Thanks for the share
