AdAgencyOnline.Net is a free automotive advertising resource/networking portal that helps introduce automotive advertising agencies to the World Wide Web.
The online automotive advertising community shares best practices and research when evaluating new automotive advertising applications and online resources. Their goal is to help auto dealers maximize their R.O.I. with reduced automotive advertising budgets capped by a down market.
Social networking is an online platform that has migrated from other industries, such as the travel and restaurant industry, into the automotive vertical.
The consumer based sites have attracted automotive advertising agencies that are anxious to leverage their online resources. CarFolks.Com
is a social networking site targeted to the auto industry that is featured on AdAgencyOnline.Net
and promoted as an automotive advertising resource that delivers an auto dealer’s message directly to consumers where they are; online!
Social networking sites invite car shoppers to discuss their experiences at auto dealerships in sales and service with likeminded consumers that are online looking for information in a friendly environment. CarFolks.Com
isn’t the only social networking site focused on the automotive advertising industry but their business model invites auto dealers and their sales staff to participate - minus the sales hype. Automotive advertising agencies are learning the value of branding an auto dealer and his staff with personality and people over price and product and AdAgencyOnline.Net
has selected CarFolks.Com as the perfect online community to deliver their customer friendly message for them.
Philip Zelinger, President of Ad Agency Online, L.L.C. and host for AdAgencyOnline.Net, interviewed Mark Dubis, the V.P. of Marketing for CarFolks.Com on the portal’s blog talk radio station WAAOL – All Automotive Advertising News All The Time.
The show ran today, Tuesday, August 19th, 2008 from 12:00 noon to 12:30 PM EST with a slight interruption blamed on the storm running through South Florida. Automotive advertising agencies and auto dealers who missed the live show are invited to go to www.adagencyonline.net to download the program to learn some of the best practices offered by both Philip Zelinger and Mark Dubis.
Mark Boyd, the President of CarFolks.Com, wasn’t on today’s “Lunch With Phil Discussing Automotive Advertising” program but he has appeared on the site’s blog talk radio show “Automotive Advertising Experts” in previous months.

He developed his dynamic for success as co-founder of Chrome Data Systems, which, under Boyd’s direction; dominated the development and fulfillment of manufacturing and retail technology for vehicle data. David A. Hein, CEO of CF Media Group, has also appeared on WAAOL
and he had the following comments regarding Mr. Boyd and the value that he brings to CarFolks.Com, “Boyd brings passion and a strong background for developing and deploying creative and dynamic sales organizations in our industry.
