Be Thankful About Real Life on Social Media

Businesses are starting to get it. They once saw social media as a channel like many others through which they could broadcast their message. When that didn’t work, they shifted to using it as a branding tool only. When that wasn’t effective, they started communicating with people. Bingo! Now, more need to take it to the next…

Sales & Marketing Effectiveness Blog Isn’t It Time Sales Took Some Responsibility?

Again I would like to say that an audit of the Sales Operation should be a prerequisite for any Marketing firm before taking on a new client. It may even be a good idea for some existing clients.  

Dealers should have an Independent Audit done at least once a year to measure both Sales and Marketing. - DealerNet Services

Is your online reputation being managed before it creates reviews on Google or Yelp?

You’ll always hear me say, “the minute you’ve lost your perspective as the consumer, you’ll never have any perspective as a marketer.”  Whether you’re actually a marketer or a businessperson of any kind in any industry whatsoever, the same rule applies.  Online reviews don’t just “appear,” and much like a doctor’s advice after a heart attack, “the signs were there, we just didn’t see them or they were ignored.”  There is a process by which online reviews come to be published…

Playing To Win

The San Antonio Spurs played not to win and wound up losing. The Spurs gave the power and control of the game to the Miami Heat and Miami took the power and control of their destiny and won. The Spurs will forever regret the position they took. Business lessons learned: Play to win instead of not to lose. Never give away your power or control of your destiny to the competition.

Never Ask a Question in an Empty (Social Media) Room

Speaking in an Empty Room

I was consulting with a potential client yesterday and started looking at their Facebook and Twitter pages. Once a day, every day, they would post a question that had very little to do with anything at all. "What was the last movie you watched?"

Once a day, every day, they wouldn't get a response from anyone. It was awkward in a…

Why LinkedIn is a Golden Opportunity for Your Dealership

There are now more than 225 million registered users on LinkedIn and in recent months there has been a heavy push for a new influencer program. Each day, Fortune 500 business leaders provide best practices and stories to their success. This content distribution has transformed the way people use the platform. When LinkedIn was founded in 2003 by Reid Hoffman, most people used the site to connect with current colleagues or companies they wished to join. That has all changed with …

Fine, there are Two Exceptions to the "No Cats or Dogs" Rule on Facebook

No Cats or Dogs

For a few months now, I’ve been discussing the idea that local businesses should never fall into the trap of trying to be funny or interesting through the use of irrelevant pictures and memes. “No cat or dog pictures” has become a mantra of sorts with the concept being that businesses should try to stand out, not fit into the mix on Facebook and other social media sites.

As some have argued, there are definitely…
