A local boy in Rumson, a friend of my son Connor, is obessed with collecting car keys. I just found out about his collection and I have attached two photos. I had a car dealership GM over at the house this weekend and he was begging him for any unclaimed keys that he could send him.
So I was thinking that there must be thousands of unclaimed keys and old keys that may be very "cool" to add to Jeremy's collection. So if you car to make a young man very happy, send me some of…Continue

Who wouldn't want to get…Continue

I just returned from a Conference and many of the breakout sessions discussed the need for businesses to focus on “The Voice of the Customer”.
This seems to be the new buzz phrase and I heard many different ideas on how a company can achieve this.
1. Utilizing Social Media to monitor what your customers are saying about your company or your products.
2. Listening to recorded calls, hearing where customers are interrupting your agents in order to…

This video was too large to upload on ADM because of the 100 Mb limit but I wanted to show all ADM members how cool the Flipboard App for the iPad looks. It took me 2 minutes to install the App and it turned by boring Twitter stream into a stylish social media magazine.
The iPad app converted by Twitter stream into a cool Automotive Social Media magazine.
The Flipboard App also brings up an interesting point. Would you read the magazine of your Twitter…Continue

The search engines function like nature. Well structured and well adapted pages populated with original and relevant content, planted in the right soil, over time, will thrive. People, consumers, are on the internet based on the need to seek pleasure or the need to resolve pain. The pain component has to do with searching for and finding answers to questions – solving personal problems or finding more information and a great deal on their next car.…Continue

These guys just don’t seem to get it. It’s an unseemly fight that Insignia is picking with Dealer Track (see below), to be caught in a war for a difference

the point because in this economy where every dollar counts, technology and
tools are important but there’s much more money to be made with the right
process in place.
Dealer’s using izmocars…Continue
