Automotive Digital Marketing Resources

There is an abundance of information out there regarding automotive digital marketing. The challenge is in sifting though the high-quality content and the content that is geared strictly towards promoting a vendor's products.

The Automotive Digital Marketing Network is one of the best out there. Ralph has put together one of the strongest networks in the automotive sector, bringing vendors and dealers together to share ideas.

Posted on August 14, 2015 at 5:30pm 1 Comment

A friend (who happens to also be a client) called me today hoping to pick my brain about his presentation at a conference. He's an experienced General Manager who has seen it all. Sometimes, seeing it all means it's difficult to pick out the gems that you've come across in your…

Thanks J.D.!  Ralph spent a good deal of effort last night on the phone with me getting me reinstated, and from what a novice IT guy like me could tell, he also arrived at another possibility of how it could have happened.  But, "All's well that ends well."  However, it is a little troubling, but totally believable, that somebody out there hates me.  Come to think of it, it's really not that troubling!
