Please Help Summit High's Performing Arts Attend Fringe Festival

The Douglas Auto Group had a successful Fill 'Er Up Food Drive at the end of 2011. A large portion of the credit goes to these wonderful kids who make up Summit High School's Performing Arts Group. They passed out flyers and came out in the freezing cold to help collect food for the needy. Now they have been selected to attend the world's largest performing arts festival, The Fringe Festival, in Scotland this August. They are in need of help in making this trip a reality.

Can Great Data + Great Buying Experience = Great Sales?

I've been involved in the TrueCar discussions for months now, sometimes prominently.  And the idea of protecting the dealers'--nay the industry's--data has become very, very important to me.  Thank you, Jim Ziegler, for goading us to pay attention to these issues.

Title tags should be a part of the SEO strategy of every car dealership website.  Why?  Its contents not only provide the text for the blue-links shown on search engine result pages (meaning users use them to help decide whether or not to click onto your dealership’s site), but also tell search engines what each unique web page contains.

Is the Customer Still Always Right?

The customer is always right.” was coined and made famous by retailers including Selfridges and Marshall Field’s (now Macy’s) around the turn of the 20th century.

They are always there (except when they run down the street) always happy, always interested in what you are doing. Their genuine feelings towards you make you value them even more. As a dog owner, you strive to make them feel appreciated and loved through a variety of ways. Whether…
