Professional Community for Car Dealers, Automotive Marketers and Sales Managers
I am sure that AutoCon will be a great conference, but enough is enough! If I was going to attend, I'd be signed up already. I wouldn't wait til the last minute and change my mind when I got a two for one email or if TrueCar or any other vendor decided to offer more scholarships to the event. I made a decision NOT to attend the event because of the guerilla (SPAM) marketing.
I posted this same photo to the very same facebook groups and online communities that have been so severely spammed over the last months so that maybe, just maybe the people behind the event would listed. As I am writing this, more AutoCon 2012 promotional posts have gone up on Facebook.
I admire and respect everyone behind AutoCon. I believe wholeheartedly in training and education for car dealers. I do not agree with nor condone the marketing tactics used to promote this event. It goes against everything we've been told by the same people about using social media. I'm sorry if my message doesn't sit well with Ralph or Brian, but that's the way I feel and I'm positive that I am not the only one who feels this way. Thanks for allowing me to post this here on ADM. I hope it does not get taken down.
