This is Our Industry: Let’s Take It Back!

I believe that, as an automotive community, we intuitively know that we need to change.

The sales to consumer model is outdated – our fault for not demanding of ourselves consistent improvement in the consumer experience arena. Consumers are demanding more and Wall Street has taken notice. Backed by hundreds of millions of dollars,…

Dealers Must Streamline their Retail Process to Meet Consumer Need

Today’s consumers dictate the customer experiences they want and brands are listening. Think about Amazon. You can literally tweet your order to them and it will be at your house in 2 days.

Through The Looking Glass - My Journey From Dealership To Vendor - 1998-2015

Most people don’t like…

1 Easy Tweak to Quickly Find the Best Advice Regarding the Recent Google Organic Keyword Changes

Unless you've been living under a rock, you know by now that Google made some major changes recently to the data they provide webmasters.

As of September 23rd Google flipped a switch and made all Google searches secure. This means that organic analytical data (aka organic keywords) is now virtually non-existant for Google traffic.

How do you figure out how to cope in our new "(not provided)" reality?  If you're like me, you started Googling (ironically?) for answers. However,…

What Do You Think It Will Take To Change? Hello?

Sometimes it helps being a cynic and a pessimist, or at least devil's advocate but at the end of the day you're either your own worst enemy or best ding-dang advocate. It is always beneficial to see things with a different perspective but critically important to maintain your identity and job jump in the pool for the sake of it, no matter how fun the party.



Recently I've read two good articles. One by Joe Webb (President of Dealer Knows) in Digital Dealer Magazine. The other a blog… Continue

What Are You Waiting For? It's Already Been Here And The Train Left The Station...

Many people that are concerned in all types of businesses talk the same talk today: waiting. Some have been waiting for a new administration, some for a car czar, some for banks to loosen up, some for 'the bottom' and some just for the fun of waiting.
