At DealerOn, we believe that there is a definite benefit to devoting time and effort to…Continue

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.

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.

Normally nosy bloggers post the first spy pics of a new car model, but this time Hyundai itself has revealed a spy shot of the 2011 Elantra on its official Twitter account. This clever image leak is a great example of automotive social media marketing.

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.
