ARE YOU WILLING TO TAKE ONE MORE STEP?

Update Your Dealership’s Address and Location Online Frequently

Yesterday I was on my way to a meeting at a dealership.  I had left the home office earlier so I can be at the meeting earlier especially since it was an 80 mile ride.  I was within three miles of the dealership and thirty minutes early.  I had never been there before I relied on my GPS as I always do.  The GPS that I use comes from my iPhone and the software is less than a week old as I just updated the operating system.

The GPS was pulling in an address from…

He followed both as he follows many local businesses…

KPA Offers 7 Scholarships to Attend the Internet Sales 20 Group

Internet Sales 20 Group

We don’t promote conferences very often. Those who have seen KPA at conferences know that we attend nearly all of them, speak at most, and engage with dealers as our primary reason for going. These things make promotion of the events challenging as we know that we’re getting a benefit from them so it’s almost like “double dipping” when we promote them as well.
