Social Media Generates Sales -- CONTENT Baby, CONTENT!

Content is the answer to how to sell via social media. The easiest example is in the history of radio: Advertisers drew people to listen with interesting content and then did commercial announcements. This "hook'em and sell'em" device transited nicely to TV. And it's transiting to social media, as well! Give people a short and interesting mini-article, funny video, human-interest story, and THEN give them a link to your site/inventory/contact…

Consumers holding off on car purchases... big opportunity?

I came across this feed from Consumer Reports about consumers holding off on car purchases. What I found very interesting in the article is the top 4 reasons that consumers are giving for holding off. You can almost hear a consumers' response:" I don't know man, my car's in pretty good shape, not to mention, prices for cars today are way too high and there aren't any incentives that would motivate me..." What? That seems to be in contrast with the recent activity and consumer response to… Continue
