Hi Ralph, I just joined your community and am looking forward to learning and meeting new people. I work at Evox images and will be going to the Digital Dealer Conference in Orlando this month. We have booth #1005 and would enjoy the opportunity to meet you - my colleagues highly recommend I connect with you. They thought you might be able to share some of your favorite automotive blogs and forums with me; I am launching their online marketing initiatives and look forward to getting connected with the leaders in the industry. Thank you and I look forward to meeting you. S. Romero
After two years of working with Justin Brun and the crew at Acton Toyota I left to take on my own Internet/BDC department with a much smaller, rural dealership. Going from a 300 plus point to a Subaru point doing around 50-60 per month is a huge change. My goals are to drag them into the 21st century and contribute an additional 25 units per month with 6 months.
I am going to be leaning on the ADM community quite a bit to help me get there but I couldn't help but notice that there is no Subaru Dealership Page or Group.
Can we set one up?
Any advice you can offer will be more than welcomed.
Good luck with the next chapter Ralph. I have personally benefitted from your investment in things automotive digital over the past several years and look forward to seeing where you take us.....
Hi Ralph, I've been a member of ADM for a while now and I have followed alot of the social media posts because I think it is extremely important for delerships repuitaion management. I have used this info to get the attention of our GM/owner to start using Facebook, He put together a team of one person from each department to discuss our approach. I think we should be using FB to show we are real people and comment daily on our page. The majority felt we should put a special, quiz, or event once a week. I'd like to get some feed back on what is the best way to use social media at our dealership.
Ralph - the article you posted on LinkedIn about the sexiest social media..... I must say, it must have caught me at the right moment, cause i felt compelled to stand with you, and convey my disappointment at that article and the mixed message it sends to our wives, daughters, female colleagues, etc... I found myself going to the process of signing up with ADM just to speak my mind and to stand up for those women featured in the article. Guess the good news is ... i am signed up with ADM now, and look forward to contributing more - take care! Fred Bonebrake - Breakthrough Direct Marketing, Inc.

Thanks Ralph...I'm just a regular guy trying to hold his head above water in a world of changing ways to buy cars. As Internet Director of three stores in a very large group, I am under constant pressure to always produce more. Every day is a trial. It's a challenge I enjoy though, and I love trying new ideas, and doing it different ways that seem good to me. I like to blaze new trails, and for sure, the Internet Sales Department is a place to do that.
Hello Ralph- I thank you for the welcome! My company CEPA Technologies has created a LiveAction "one click" program that allows customers to be instantly face to face with a dealership representative...Our technology allows for Audio and Visual communication as well as INSTANT file sharing! All communication can be recorded for future playback.The LiveAction program is also 3 times more encrypted than online banking.I would like to demonstrate the technology to you when you hafe a moment.
Thanks Again-David Baggaley
