Dealers are getting reviews (and that's great) but why aren't we getting Google +1s?

The dealers who "get it" are really making a push to have their sales and/or BDC teams proactively get reviews on Google Places and the other review sites. This is great, but there's something else that's easier and potentially more important that should be implemented in the review process.

Consumers Want Video Walk-Arounds. Here's Proof!

In my days with HomeNet Automotive, a new feature was released that allowed our customers to upload live video into their inventory for distribution to the third-party websites that would allow it.

Being in sales, I wanted to have a real video in which I could show potential clients the possibilities and an actual example of what one would look like so I enlisted help from a friend of mine who's a GM at a nearby dealer group to…

The future of video

YouTube has been the king of online video for years, but the Google-owned video service has had its share of trials and tribulations. While YouTube is now making some revenue, its costs have eaten that away by and large. And while YouTube is still growing like wildfire, it still has a long way to go to make the jump to TV.

The world’s second largest video…

Your Auto Responders Should Leverage Links to Video Assets

I've never worked at a car dealership. But as I assist car dealers across the country, I have seen many different styles of management, structure, and process.

Recently I had the opportunity to conduct a joint 20 Group presentation with Joe Webb and Jared Hamilton and Joe presented the mystery shopping results he did for each dealer in the group. Wow, this was an eye opener from some dealers that…

4 Essential tips for producing videos that "move metal"

The single biggest problem with most car dealer videos is poor visual quality. What I see from car dealers does not contain enough visual detail to be meaningful to the customer.
