AdAgencyOnline.Net is advising its affiliated automotive advertising agencies and auto dealer clients to take advantage of free “word of mouth automotive advertising” on the Internet with social networking sites like CarFolks.Com. AdAgencyOnline.Net features CarFolks.Com on their FREE automotive advertising resource/networking portal recognized by automotive advertising agencies as “The One Stop Site For All Of Your Automotive Advertising Needs.”
The value of word of mouth advertising and referrals is nothing new but the online consumer forums that link car shoppers to other car shoppers and buyers can be an automotive advertising agency’s biggest blessing – or worst nightmare.
Philip Zelinger, President of Ad Agency Online, L.L.C. and host of Ad Agency Online.Net, invited Mark Dubis from CarFolks.Com onto his blog talk radio show, “Lunch With Phil”, to reassure his affiliated automotive advertising agencies and auto dealer clients that social networking sites are a blessing with unequalled opportunities that couldn’t have appeared at a better time.
The show is scheduled for Tuesday, July 15th between 12:00 Noon EST and 12:30 PM EST on the blog talk radio station WAAOL - All Automotive Advertising News All The Time
– featured at www.adagencyonline.net . Automotive advertising agencies are invited to listen and learn about CarFolks.Com and the unique opportunities presented to auto dealers by social networking sites to sell cars and service in a down market when every automotive advertising dollar must count.
Philip Zelinger explained the reason for his support of social networking sites and CarFolks.Com in particular, “The Internet is often used as a filter by car shoppers who want to avoid a sales pitch during their initial fact finding visits to the World Wide Web. With gas at $4.50 a gallon car shoppers are surfing the web for information instead of driving around town visiting auto dealerships and they have learned that an auto dealer’s website isn’t the only – or even the best way – to get it.
Other industries, like travel and restaurants, have been relying on social networking sites like TripAdvisor.Com and Zagat.Com to allow consumers to rate their experiences in the marketplace and share them with likeminded Internet shoppers. The automotive advertising industry isn’t always the first to take advantage of new technology but they are always the best at applying it to sell cars and service for their auto dealer clients.
CarFolks.Com allows consumers to post their experiences in sales and service, as do many of the newly organized social networking sites in the auto industry, but CarFolks.Com has figured out a way for the auto dealers to participate in a way that helps both the consumer and the auto dealer. Both positive and negative posts on CarFolks.Com are shared with the referenced auto dealer as soon as they appear. Negative posts are more valued than positive ones since an astute auto dealer is given the chance to turn lemons into lemonade by solving the problem – and saving a customer that almost got away!
Both the problem and the solution are then a matter of public record which enhances an auto dealer’s online reputation and offers FREE word of mouth advertising. Automotive advertising agencies are looking for ways to deliver an automotive advertising message that won’t bust their shrinking automotive advertising budget and CarFolks.Com is able to deliver it from a source with more credibility than the auto dealer – other customers; what a country!”
Automotive advertising agencies, auto dealers and auto industry insiders are turning to AdAgencyOnline.Net as “The Ultimate Outsourcing Tool For Automotive Advertising Agencies” and today’s Lunch With Phil Show is a good example of why.
