Holiday Promotions for Auto Dealerships

As the holiday season approaches, auto

dealers seek ways to take advantage of the holiday spirit to promote

their dealerships. One way to do this is to choose a charity to donate

money to and then use Facebook and Twitter pages to encourage people to

give. For example, Chevy dealers are running the Chevy Gives More

campaign and integrating this with Facebook. A charity promotion is a

A blog about blogging?

Hi Everyone! I am very, very new to this and upon the advise of my new friend Frank Davis, am seeking the advise of ya'll. While I am not new to marketing, advertising, and online leads, I am new to this industry. I am trying to figure out what topics to talk about in an on-going blog that will be posted on our website. My previous blogging experience was more of an on-going chat session about community watch and apartment living. I have noticed several blog sites that are not what I consider… Continue

Dealer Online Reputation Fail

I recently met with an independent used car dealership who was looking to secure their online reputation. After being in the car business my whole life, it’s safe to say my BS-detector is in top working order. When I drove on the lot, it was chiming at def-con 5. I got upped, which was great, but while I was waiting for my appointment, I was able to observe their tactics at selling cars and that told me all I needed to know. It was like when people are speaking a foreign language… Continue

Make Your Social Media Presence Personal

Let’s face it: not too many people want to like a Facebook page that’s purely “sales-y.” If all you do on your car dealership Facebook page is post lists of prices and cars, you’re missing the point of social media. People join Facebook for the chance to interact personally with

their friends and come to expect the same casual approach from the

pages they like.

There is a much better chance of gaining fans on your page if you post pictures, interesting facts and…
