Make Your VIPs Feel Special with a Customer Appreciation Event

You know who they are: your VIP customers. The ones who have purchased more than one vehicle from you and the ones who frequent your service department for their repair needs. What are you doing to show your appreciation for them this holiday season?

 

Call it a trend or a growing awareness that you can’t take loyal customers for granted, but more and more small businesses are showing their appreciation in the form of a party or other event that offers both fun and rewards to…

Yesterday, the US Government took to its blog to announce that all the rumors of earth ending on December 21,2012 are false. Wait, what? Our government has a blog? Yeah, I didn't know that either. Apparently NASA has been receiving tons of letters…

Reputation: The BIG Blue Sky of Your Dealership!

I've long fought for dealers to know and improve their reputation, but the reputation of the industry always felt like it was holding dealers back.  It is very frustrating!  As I've often put it, the fly pushing on the butt of the elephant doesn't mean it's driving, it only means it is lucky the elephant is going it's…

"Our Dealership SUCKS..."

I'm not commenting one way or the other on recent discussions regarding Carfax's advertising campaigns. The only thing that I will say is that it sure has garnered a lot of interest from the community. If dealers are being represented poorly in an ad campaign they should respond and vehemently defend themselves, right? Makes sense, until you see this...

Enter Microsoft IE 10 from stage left...…

Facebook's Dealer Success Guide

Facebook is pushing hard to extend their influence, and now they are beginning to drill down to a more granular level with their business support. They recently released a guide specifically for automotive dealerships. The only problem is that it isn’t exactly advertised everywhere, so many people may have missed it. It’s nothing…

Reach is Infinitely More Important than Fan Count on Facebook

For better or for worse, Facebook made it easier for people to report or block page posts in September. Since then, the need to tread carefully with posts has increased dramatically; too many reports or blocks can hurt a page's performance dramatically. This is an important topic that will be covered more in-depth in a future…

SEO is Dead... for those who can't keep up

Every few months, marketers around the blogosphere start the next batch of chants that search engine optimization is dying or dead. It's like clockwork; Google makes a change, their pages rank poorly, they declare that the party's over. I think I've written about the topic at least once a year since 2008.
