SEO Webinar - John Marazzi Nissan

This was shot during Brian Pasch's SEO Webinar for DealersEdge on Feb. 10th 2009. I'll go ahead and take credit for much of the ditch digging, but must give big credit to Sean V. Bradley and Dealer Synergy for getting me headed down the right path…

ADM is a Professional Network, describe: "Why should anyone do business with you?"
Our Internet Sales & Delivery Team offers a seemless sales experience. You can expect valuable information and immediate service from an on site team member.
"What will YOU contribute to the ADM Community?"
I am the Digital Sales & Marketing Director for Marazzi Motors which includes John Marazzi Nissan in Naples Florida and Audi Jaguar Land Rover Fort Myers.

Our Internet Sales and Delivery Team accounts for 35 - 40% of each stores business. We understand that nearly every single search for a new or used vehicle begins with a search engine. Our priority has always been to capitalize on "First Party Leads" converted on our web site. That said I am not a paid lead hater, I simply prefer to farm organically. Our utilization of Video, Blog, Micro Sites, Press Release and Social Media allows us a dominant position in SERP. We are Search Conquest Driven and maximize every opportunity with strong processes and the right people.

Our BDC personnel handle all incoming Internet & phone traffic into the dealership. Our process uses excellent phone skills and strong long term follow up.

Social Media networking and the "Branding" of our "Internet Sales & Delivery Team" has taken on a life of its own. We own our Google page one results, unlike most of our competitors as well as the third parties. I don’t consider myself an SEO expert, but a student. I consider maintaining a dominant internet presence like a game, I enjoy it and am encouraged to constantly try new things and experiment with new techniques.

I See the Future … It’s Electric by John Marazzi

Posted on May 14, 2009 at 9:30am 1 Comment

I See the Future … It’s ElectricI’ve been around the car business my whole life. At the age of twelve I was washing cars. At fifteen, I was a porter and at seventeen, I became a salesperson. Through the years, I’ve seen plenty of changes. I saw interest rates in 1982 at 18% and recent rates at 0%. I saw gas fluctuate from two dollars a gallon to over four and back to two dollars quicker than a summer break. Now we witness… Continue

Hey Gang,
Check out this site. It is geared toward the sales persons perspective. Not necessarily Internet. I think it has potential and is currently being under untilized. We should really be reaching out in this current climate. Whether or not we're competitors, now is the time to share whats working and what's not. Let's all be standing when we reach the other side of this thing.

Rob here is the link to register for Thursday's webinar on getting set up with the coupon software - I scheduled it yesterday for another List Builder customer and then realized you need to get set up too. This webinar series will recur monthly like the AC Video one, but will be more specific to List Builder stuff, so once registered you will not have to register again for upcoming List Builder webinars. Hope you can make it.

Here is a newsletter to which I subscribed some while back. The guy must have disappeared b\c I have not heard from him much until just recently. Keep an eye on it for ideas for your weekly specials.

You too, Rob. I spoke to Ralph and he said, while the turnout wasn't as big as usual (a couple hundred), they feel it was their best webinar yet. I didn't expect a monstrous turnout considering so many dealers are fearful of video. I'll call you in the near future so we can speak directly.

Next week we are running a webinar for our List Builder product. Would be great if you can make it. It's on Wed at 11:30. You can register for it on the BlogPro site.

List Builder is the next step in using your blog. Takes it from being a just a noise filter and referral site to a lead-generating machine.

I hope you can attend. Please let your friends know about it, online and off.
