Scott Falcone commented on Joshua Michael Friedman's blog post When is it okay to pay for online reviews?
"@ JMF The world has changed and so has the business. Old pay plans and techniques may not work as well today as in the last decade and certainly the things that need to be done in the dealership by your sales staff has changed too (if you want to…"

"David, Actions allowed=actions condoned. Don't like the actions, don't allow them. Poor leaders are the root cause of why an article like this is even written. While I do not know Craig personally, I am sure that he can confirm the sad…"

Scott Falcone commented on Tom Gorham's blog post From the Trenches - Who Sank Your Google Reviews?
"@ Criss, to Keith's point you are referring to a different animal. No reason in the world a company like Cobalt isn't available for a real answer outside of 9-5 M-F. $400,000,000 buys a lot of support ya know. And honestly, a dealer that…"

"@ John Brown, Not sure where your axe with Tom is...Cobalt pulled an unprofessional, poorly thought out move when they attempted to add their OEM site to a new Places page for him. If Cobalt is so reputable and digitally savvy as they have…"

Scott Falcone replied to Steve Davern's discussion Google Reviews vanish over night
"Google admitted, plain and simple in Oct of 2010 (as an example), that they just outright lost reviews during some update. Will there be filtering, will there be changes, who knows, but I don't think it is good to scare a dealer into something…"

Scott Falcone replied to Steve Davern's discussion Google Reviews vanish over night
"Contrary to some opinions, at lease one store that I know of had reviews vanish last night and they DID NOT DO GOOGLE REVIEWS in store. But what they did have happen was Cobalt decided without dealer approval, to claim a listing for their OEM…"

10 Significant Things in the History of Peace and Prosperity and why 2012 will be AMAZING!

Posted on December 4, 2011 at 6:19pm 12 Comments

A recent event has occurred that some may have missed but I, being an astute student and teacher of trends, signs, conditions, Ouija, SEO and total guesswork, have noticed. A rare occurrence in both space and time that will rank at the top of important events in automotive history, ahead of Henry Ford's assembly line, in front of front wheel drive, even more important than JD Powers inventing the words "customer service" and convincing the…

Updated Information on Google Places and Reviews

Posted on November 17, 2011 at 8:05am 26 Comments

Google Places Review Issues

Over the last year (plus) there have been numerous hypotheses shared regarding Google Places and the practice of customers entering reviews while still in the dealership or business. The crux of the discussion was whether or not Google was blocking reviews from a common IP address because of the possibility of gaming the system or as some have suggested, because a customer might feel “pressured” if asked to do this review while still at the business location.

Many…

Google Plus Business Pages...set up concern

Posted on November 7, 2011 at 4:43pm 1 Comment

Just a quick thought...when setting up a page be careful who is setting it up as there is no way to make multiple Admins...yet. When Google says "coming soon" we should be nervous. Not sure why they would roll this out without addressing this issue, but then again... here is a link to the subject Google Help. Hope it does.

hello Scott.  Thanks for being my first friend of this group.  I am in a state of change right now.  I just left my job as the marekting Director at Germain Motors after 11 years to start my own marketing company.  I am working with a friend who owns a direct mail company and a local TV and radio production company.  Would your store be interesting in any mail?  Or, if you ever want some cutting edge footage and spots that help sell cars (Ft. Myers Toyota when they sold 400 new a month and now Marrazzi Nissan is our client) then please contact me.  I would love to work with you.  We will make it fun.  Dana

Scott,

It is great to see you here... I am in my home office all week working on several Digital Marketing proposals after one of those too-much-travel weeks facilitating Digital Advertising Dealer Summits that started in Phoenix, then Dallas, followed by Houston on Thursday and finishing with a Summit Meeting in San Antonio, TX. I am in my home office preparing for next week's gun fight and trying to get caught up on expense reports.

Despite the fact that I should be doing something else, like those proposals, I just had to go online to see if there were any new Automotive Digital Marketing Group members for me to welcome, because it has been far too long since I have done so... Shazam, there you were, a new ADM Professional that I have not yet welcomed to our community!

On behalf of both myself, and the rest of the 1,450+ member ADM family, welcome to our online community and file sharing repository... We are very happy to see you have joined our community of automotive marketing and sales professionals.

Please take a moment to share some more information about yourself and your professional role. More information links, some blog postings with PPT, XLS, DOC and PDF files attached are particularly welcome. And of course we all love to see and listen to your music, photo and video uploads. I pay extra for additional server storage capacity for ADM and any valuable content you upload to make use of it is all appreciated.

Please note that you can upload documents into any blog post, forum discussion, group, comments and other sections for ADM members to download. There are already hundreds of PowerPoints, Excel Spreadsheets, Word Doc's, PDF files and more... We would be thrilled to get you to upload a few of yours to share with the community.

VERY IMPORTANT - All of us at ADM would very much appreciate it if you could please take the time to complete your profile section by uploading a photo showing your face. Most ADM members would like to put a face with your name and profile... Based on what i have seen since starting the ADM Professional Community at the beginning of 2008, I can promise you that you'll get more out of ADM when other members see that you have uploaded a profile photo!

I love seeing more and more automotive professionals and auto industry colleagues like yourself join the ADM community... When I checked the membership section a moment ago, I was pleasantly surprised to see that as of today, and thanks to your enrollment we are now up to over 1,450 automotive sales and marketing professionals who have joined the ADM Community... With help from automotive marketing professionals like yourself, we broke the 1,000 member mark on the 4th of July, 2008!

Amazing support from an amazing industry... Makes the aggravation of flying around the country with a guy sitting next to me who keeps sticking his elbow into my ribs, somehow worth it!

One of the greatest features that ADM provides is that you have full access to your very own blog web site within your personal profile section (here) of the ADM community. So feel free to get into the swing of things and use this website and the resources you get at no extra cost (because the ads here pay for them), as a means of sharing information, files, updates, proposals, photos, videos, etc.with your associates, customers, clients and friends!
