Don't Take Credit For Other's Efforts

This isn't going to be a long rant because I do most of my ranting in the video below, but it all definitely needs to be said. Taking an image that someone else took from one of the various picture-sharing sites on the internet and then slapping your watermark on it is a very poor practice. It's dishonest. It's a potential hit to your reputation. It's a little creepy.

One thing I do not mention in the video is that it reduces the chances that someone else will share the image from…

Introducing The NO HITS Method For Building A Social Business

So, you don't get social huh? You're not seeing the return the guru promised in his blog post? Don't worry, you're not alone. One of the biggest reasons for social failure is that most businesses use it as a bolt on. That is, they just attach it to whatever it is that they are doing and pray that's enough. I'm here to tell you that it's not. Even if the…

Google Advisor For Car Buyers

Google is testing out its advisor product with car dealers/buyers in the San Francisco Bay area.  After having a mild heart attack and visions of "Tru Car" on steroids, I quickly realized that it will simply force marketing companies to re-structure their dealership offerings.

Although I am not aware of the ins and outs of its paid search as it pertains to car dealers, what I first noticed is that new car pictures are found on the front page of a search.  As a car shopper, I would…

The Road Less Profited

We've talked for years in automotive retail about “The Road to the Sale”, and I’m clearly one of the many supporters of that path to sales success.   However, too many of us are still on "The Road Less Profited".  Why?  Because we are not getting more sales (and…

Why Should a Customer Buy From Your Dealership? Three Tips for Building Value.

In this competitive market, we hear from many dealerships that they are struggling to engage their customers in two-way conversations. In particular with Internet leads, increasing the contact rate and getting the customers to respond can be a challenge since many customers receive emails and calls from several dealers in a short period of time.

Keep it Simple, Keep it Fresh!

  I really enjoy watching Gordon Ramsey. Almost all of his shows (Hells Kitchen, Kitchen Nightmares, MasterChef, etc) have a comon theme when it comes to cooking. Keep it simple, keep it fresh. It's as easy as keeping a simple menu to choose from, to the actual food you serve. I've noticed that if you…

“Poke” was soooo 2008... Utilizing @Tagging in Facebook for your dealership‘s fan page.

When I'm working with a dealer on their social media strategies one of the basics I always stress as a useful tool is the "tag" feature in Facebook. There has always been the ability to tag someone you know in a photograph, and that can go a long way for your dealership with delivery or customer event photo.

I wanted to talk about other ways to tag your customers or other pages that may be of interest and benefit to your fan page and your fans. It’s called…
