WARNING: Facebook Pages Can Get Hijacked (Or Not!)


Be very careful about giving anyone at your dealership admin access for your Facebook page.

Why You Need A USP

You've just gotten comfortable at the dinner table.  The food looks great and it's one of the rare occassions where the whole family is there.  The conversation is interrupted by a ringing phone and on the other end of the line, "Good evening, my name is_______ and I hope I haven't interrupted anything but I have some fantastic news about your eligibility for  more insurance coverage..."
