Automotive Marketing Professional Community for Car Dealers, OEM and Suppliers
We take pride in our Facebook page, and we try to put into practice a lot of the good advice here on ADM and elsewhere, on the tone and content of our social media, with decent results. You can link to the page via our dealership web site (a new page opens when you click the "f" icon) and via our OEM site (our Facebook page is framed in there).
