Social Networking has come a long way since the 90's. Some big players have evolved and it seems as if things aren't slowing down. With so many social sites to choose from, everyone is bound to be using at least 1 or 2 different profiles or blogs, and some of us have 10 or more!
While these social websites are great tools for marketing, there are just too many of them, and you need a username and password for each.
This presents a huge problem for many of us because… Continue

So many people...so little time! Man, you can't get away from the fear and excuses....it's the age of "I don't have enough time do to that"..."I can't add anything to my plate"..."If only I had another day in my week to pull that off"! Everyone is busy but few are actually doing much. The ones who see opportunity always figure a way to get things done, followed by the rest thinking they're just 'lucky' or that they have more 'resources'.
Can you hear it now? Most people pulling up to… Continue

As the Internet Consultant for the Colorado Independent Auto Dealers Assn, I'm looking for solutions for the smaller dealers. Most of the 1170 members are 1 to 5 employees, doing 10 to 40 cars/month, all used.
About 50 are franchise stores on the smaller end of the scale for new cars.
Any suggestions for DMS, inventory, web listing, credit, web marketing, and business management would be appreciated.

After the dealership has sold the car (be it new or pre-owned), it is not uncommon for a sales associate or Internet manager to send a “Thank You” email to the buyer. After that “Thank You”, how often are you contacting your data base of clients? These people are a captive audience. You have worked hard to establish a relationship, build trust, and earn their business. Doesn’t it make sense to keep the embers of the relationship burning?
An occasional email, once every month or two… Continue

We will never forget this day. Ever. A heavy rain is falling in Detroit and Walter Chrysler is turning over. The Dodge Brothers have tears running down their cheeks and are now forever the Blues Brothers. And everyone in the now defunct Chrysler LLC is on pins and needles waiting for the shiny shoe of the White House to drop.
Interesting it was done on the last day of the month and the last day of the quarter. Perfect timing to go bankrupt. Any car guy… Continue

It's so much a part of business today: cost cutting, staff reductions, marketing cancellations, disappearing perks. Even companies that are profitable and efficient are not exempt from the slashing and hacking (that makes sense, right? right?). Needed? Absolutely! Done right? No way! What can you honestly expect when you're name (and more) is not out there?
There's no point in kicking a dead horse: it's bad out there and those that watch conventional media just make it worse by… Continue

This is the time of month to go get a car; the deals have truly never been better for you the customer. The salespeople already know tomorrow is the end of the month. Hope both parties take advantage of it.

Talladega needs to keep the cars on the ground. The catch fence did just that. Up to seven fans were hurt when debris blazed through the fencing. How long before we slow it down there?

If you have ever thought that Google search engine displays a boring list of search results, you are in for a pleasant surprise. Google organic search results are getting more interesting to read as Google is adding icons to different classes of search result links. One trend that I observed are very encouraging to business owners who are using press releases to promote their business.
Google must be in the process of creating categories of Internet posts and deciding if the category… Continue
