Video Platform Expands Content to Include Exclusive Interviews with Gary Vaynerchuk, Rob Siefker, Jason Falls, Aaron Strout and others.
January 31 , 2012 - Salt Lake City, UT. -DrivingSalesTV (DSTV) will report on the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) 2012 convention and post video news released at the show, as well as interviews with leading automotive industry executives and dealers. DSTV recently expanded its video content to include exclusive interviews with many of the leading digital media thought-leaders, including keynotes from the 2011 Driving Sales Executive Summit.
“We look forward to providing some of the industry’s richest video content from the convention floor in Vegas,” said DrivingSales CEO and Founder Jared Hamilton. “DrivingSalesTV is already full of content from the hugely successful 2011 DSES, providing those who were unable to attend (as well as those who did) the opportunity to hear tips and advice from passionate digital visionaries in social media, location-based marketing, customer service, and more. We are pleased to be able to provide a similar service for dealers who are unable to attend NADA and will be filming the most pertinent inspirational and practical profit-building content on the convention floor.”
DrivingSalesTV combines two powerful media platforms – video and social media – with authoritative profit-building information. With DSTV, dealers can easily keep tabs on their industry, see best practices in action, and have a more personal view into peer success stories, in a format that is lively, interesting, and interactive – even, at times, provocative – but always with a focus on business innovation and improvement.
