Are You a Planner or Do You Live in the Now?

Are you the type of person who plans every aspect of your life, months or even years in advance? Or are you the type of person that does everything on a whim? I've always considered myself the latter in my personal life because I like the thrill of spontaneous plans. However, I take a different approach when it comes to working in automotive advertising.

In automotive marketing, it is best to plan for the future months instead of working in the current month. There are plenty of…

To Chat, or Not to Chat?

Often I find myself having a recurring conversation with my dealers. The topic? Website Chat. Chat is essential to a dealership if they want to capitalize on all potential leads.

Even if your dealership only sells three cars in a month directly from chat leads, wouldn’t you say that it’s worth it? As far as managing…

First Peek at Advertising on Instagram

On October 24, 2013, Instagram announced that they would become the next social media giant to offer up advertising space on their mobile platform.

The Great Craigslist Auto-Exodus - Why It's A Good Thing!

Some clouds are huge, with small silver linings.  Other clouds are small, dwarfed by the silver lining they bring.  This cloud snuck up on many dealers who rely upon Craigslist (CL) to generate a steady source of leads: now, all posts by dealers for their cars and trucks will cost $5 each.

Gone are they days of capriciously spamming the CTD (Cars and Trucks by Dealer) board with hundreds of ads.  And I, for one, welcome it.  Because now, gone too are the days of…
