Time Saving Social Media Tools

When I’m talking with dealers about various aspects of their online marketing strategy, the reason that they most frequently bring up for why they aren't more involved in social media is that they or their teams don't have the time.  I'm a strong believer in the theory that time is the new money, so I agree that sometimes there just aren't enough hours in the day.  At DealerOn, we believe that there is a definite benefit to devoting time and effort to…

From the Trenches - Social Media - Evolution or Revolution?

Back in the mid-90s, I joined in on what we called the wild, wild web. And it was wild. There were no rules, no major search engines, and most of all, no experts to tell us how to do things. We were free to experiment… and we did. It was a time when one creative soul could fashion an Internet strategy and create an…

Using the Fundamentals of Twitter to Engage Current and Potential Customers

Five years ago Jack Dorsey, co-founder of Twitter, sent out the first tweet launching a new form of communication that became a revolution in 140 characters or less. This year, Twitter posted a blog reporting that it only takes about one week for users to send 1 billion tweets and last February an average of 460,000 accounts were opened per day. In the automotive industry, we should all ask ourselves, are we utilizing the fundamentals of Twitter to best engage current and potential buyers on…

Great to see where we were and where we are now.

Why We Did It

I have been asked time and again “What made us decide to make MyDealerReport free to dealers?”. Well, the plain truth is, making dealers pay for their rating accounts was and is damaging the growth of our space. Facebook, twitter and linkedin have free accounts and this helped social media to grow. I believe social media would be hindered by forcing users to pay for an…

Hi, I am a Dealer, and I am scared of the Internet

What is your first sign of a dealer in trouble, a dealer that just doesn't get it, and a dealer that can only sell successfully for a limited period of time, because they are selling in SPITE of themselves. Yes, folks, the car market is back and dealers are once again selling cars in spite of themselves. And that has brought back the old fears and yes, let's call the baby ugly, the old stupidities that we had all hoped went away in 2008.

Employees are the key to social networking.

Stop trying to make a social network on your dealership's website with Facebook and Twitter accounts.
