Who is the Sexiest Ralph Paglia?

When he stands at a podium, men and women lean forward in their chairs to hang on every word he speaks.


When he enters a room, people crowd him to soak up the knowledge he shares.


When he leaves a men's restroom, the attendant on duty gives him unlimited paper towels and demands no tip.


He is... the sexiest man in automotive digital marketing. And his name is Ralph Paglia. Ralph is known for saying "I…

'Twas the Night Before the Dealer Internet Battle Plan

'Twas the night before the Battle Plan, when all through AC
The phones were a ringing to score the last seats
The powerpoint presentations were rehearsed with care
By the great speakers enlisted who soon would be there.


The attendees were booking their rooms and their flights
at Bally's Casino on the boardwalk, that's right.
And I in my suit and 'Da Man' in his cap
Look over our sessions until its a…

Validation and Fruition

I've actively commented on two other great, current blog posts here on ADM.FM - one by Bryan Armstrong and one from Todd Smith. This post is a marrying of the two topics - Vendor Relationships and Social Media Best Practices. Toward the end of this post, you will learn of a specific social media & CRM enhancement that a vendor (Vin Solutions) put into their CRM based on my suggestion - that ties into its own best practice - and something you should get your CRMs to implement as well. Let… Continue

What Was Your First Car? Tell Me a Story About It.

As you may know, I do my best to keep car sales fun. After drowning myself in the mind-numbing Cash for Clunkers docudramament, I need a break.



I would like to hear about your first car -

What was it?

Would you still like to have it?

What happened to it?

Are you willing to share a (clean) story about your time with your first vehicle?



I will share my story - my first car was a 1969 Chevy Camaro Z28 - silver - 100% original. It was my grandfather's pride… Continue

The Media's Negative Effect on the Car Industry

I was thumbing through my Sunday morning Chicago Tribune (yes, I still get the paper - don't know why as I read it online before ever cracking open the usually-soggy paper) and came across an article about the uptick in automotive sales. It mentioned that a rebound was occurring. I found the article refreshing. No, not because I was enlightened with new information, but that there was ANY positive news about car sales. Media rarely reports any positive messages regarding our industry. We've… Continue

Joe Webb’s Proper Car Etiquette While Dating

To tell you the truth, I knew almost nothing about cars before entering the auto industry. Zero. Zilch. I’m not ashamed to say it. I was selling cars for three weeks before someone explained to me (and showed me) the difference between alloy wheels and hubcaps. True story.



What I did always seem to know was how important a role that proper car etiquette played in dating. There are definitely “rules of the road” that a person in the dating world must take into consideration when… Continue

America's Best Selling Automobile - not what you think

I was surprised to learn what was America's best selling automobile -







This vehicle is not only American-made but it outsells both the Camry and Accord combined. The "cozy coupe" as it is called is known around the nation. Personally, though, I feel the name is a giant lie. I've tried to take one for a test drive recently and found it much… Continue

Is Stan Sher the greatest social networking marketer in the business?

I thought this would be a fun topic for a blog. And I have a feeling Stan will be one of the first to respond to it as he does to most other postings. That is why I asked myself "Is Stan Sher the greatest social networking marketer in the business?"

Many of you reading this know exactly who I am talking about. Stan Sher - who appeared out of the depths of nowhere to take over the social networking sites shared by automotive professionals everyone. Most of you have him as a friend and read… Continue
