More Car Dealer Reviews Site Flood The Internet

I can imagine Austin Powers dressed in a blue velvet leisure suit saying:



It's Social Media Baby!



If you haven't noticed car dealers are being pushed off of Google Page One for the cars that they sell. To throw salt in the wounds, it seems that every month another car dealer "review site" pops up.



This means when consumers type in a car dealership name, more sites are…

Uncle Frank sez: “You can’t lead others unless you have followed.”

Uncle Frank is always quick to point out that no member of the Boy Scouts has ever started out as an Eagle Scout and no member of the United States Military has ever started out as a general. They have to work their way up through the ranks and into…

Automotive Dealer Social Media Introduction



The search engines function like nature. Well structured and well adapted pages populated with original and relevant content, planted in the right soil, over time, will thrive. People, consumers, are on the internet based on the need to seek pleasure or the need to resolve pain. The pain component has to do with searching for and finding answers to questions – solving personal problems or finding more information and a great deal on their next car.…

Stepping over dollars to pick up dimes!





These guys just don’t seem to get it. It’s an unseemly fight that Insignia is picking with Dealer Track (see below), to be caught in a war for a difference

of less than $30 PNUR. They’re missing

the point because in this economy where every dollar counts, technology and

tools are important but there’s much more money to be made with the right

process in place.

Business Development Centers: The Most Accountable, Measurable Department

In today’s market, many dealerships are leaking money. They are unknowingly minimizing, rather than maximizing, the effectiveness and profitability of their marketing efforts. The source of this leak is a brilliant invention more than 130 years old. It is also the instrument used for endless marketing efforts, oftentimes by some of lowest paid

(and least trained) employees in a company. I am referring, of course,

to the telephone. The good news is this leak can be…

'Twas the Night Before the Dealer Internet Battle Plan

'Twas the night before the Battle Plan, when all through AC
The phones were a ringing to score the last seats
The powerpoint presentations were rehearsed with care
By the great speakers enlisted who soon would be there.


The attendees were booking their rooms and their flights
at Bally's Casino on the boardwalk, that's right.
And I in my suit and 'Da Man' in his cap
Look over our sessions until its a…

A roller coaster ride for Detroit

The last couple days have been a bit of a roller coaster for Detroit. The former Big Three gave Detroit something to smile about by leading U.S. May new car sales; the Mercury brand comes to a necessary, but sad end; and Detroit Tiger Armando Galarraga has a record throwing game taken from him purely because of human error. Unfortunately, without instant replay, the call stands.

Could the Mercury brand been saved? Should Ford have created something very different and unique…

Have you dropped the “F” Bomb in front of your client lately? Or any other form of toilet mouth language?

My Dog ATE my Internet Manager





My dog ate my Internet Manager



Where has your internet manager been lately? Have not noticed? Do you have him / her shoved into a back room or even back of the service department? Holed up and away from the general public? If so it would come down to the old saying “My dog at my Internet Manager” as an excuse.…

Texas Laws Governing Texting and Cellphone Use While Driving





Today while driving to work at Grubbs Infiniti (yes, as the Social Media Manager I could easily work from home but prefer to office at the dealership so I stay connected to what's going on) I noticed a Clear Wireless billboard on Central Expressway that showed a lap top sitting on the dashboard of a person's car and showed a traffic camera on the screen.
