Automotive advertising agencies and auto dealers that tuned into today’s “Lunch With Phil” show on blog talk radio station – WAAOL, All Automotive Advertising News All The Time – were the first to learn that the Colliers Abood Wood-Fay “Automotive Real Estate Services Group,” (ARESG) was selected as a preferred vendor on the free automotive advertising resource/networking portal www.adagencyonline.net . AdAgencyOnline.Net
is recognized by the auto industry as “The One Stop Site For All Of Your Automotive Advertising Needs” and they have redefined the role of a “full service” automotive advertising agency as evidenced by their including ARESG on their site.
Philip Zelinger, President of Ad Agency Online, L.L.C. and host of the blog talk radio shows featured on AdAgencyOnline.Net, was surprised by a call from Michael T. Fay, President of the South Florida offices for ARESG, during a show originally planned to discuss online transaction tools in the “virtual showroom.
” The conversation quickly shifted to the challenges faced by auto dealers in regards to their brick and mortar real estate investments in our troubled economic times.
Mr. Zelinger explained the ongoing conversations that he has been having with ARESG through Michael Fay and the history that they shared which facilitated today’s call. “When Ad Agency Online. L.L.C.
was founded in December of 2001 we recognized the need to extend our services to our independent affiliated automotive advertising agencies and auto dealer clients beyond the scope of conventional automotive advertising. The Internet and the automotive advertising applications that were being developed promised – and delivered - efficiencies in creating and distributing everything from production to media placement. Ad Agency Online used our proprietary online communication/distribution operating system to function as the “Ultimate Outsourcing Tool” for automotive advertising agencies and their auto dealer clients. I invested 25+ years in the retail automotive industry as a General Manager and Dealer Principal before shifting my focus to automotive advertising which proved to be another key differentiator between our network of automotive advertising agencies and other conventional agencies. Most automotive advertising agencies limit their role to delivering an automotive advertising message with no responsibility to insure that the message on the street matches the message and the selling processes on the showroom floor. As a result of my retail automotive background, our focus has always been on maximizing the R.O.I. for our clients in our retainer as well as in their automotive advertising.
In today’s shrinking auto industry real estate is often the largest investment an auto dealer has. Our ability to introduce our auto dealer clients and site visitors to a commercial real estate firm with the resources and focus in the automotive industry that ARESG provides enhances our value to our clients and reaffirms our priority to protect their interests beyond just their automotive advertising.
Colliers Abood Wood-Fay is an independently owned and operated business and affiliate member of Colliers International, one of the largest commercial real estate firms in the world with $2 billion in revenue, $73 billion in transaction volume and over 868 million SF under management. More specifically, ARESG has generated more than $200 million worth of business in the automotive vertical during the four years that they have specialized in the auto industry in spite of recent challenging market conditions. Performance like that warrants their inclusion as a preferred vendor on our portal and justifies my decision to recommend them. My confidence in ARESG is further enhanced by my relationship with Michael Fay which extends over thirty years including a shared experience as an associate in his original offices, Wood-Fay Realty. I always factor people and personality over product and price when selecting preferred vendors for my online community of automotive advertising agencies, automotive advertising vendors, auto dealers and site visitors searching the Internet for solutions to shared problems and Michael Fay has earned my trust on many levels.”
ARESG has joined a select group of preferred vendors and invited auto industry insiders featured on AdAgencyOnline.Net including LeadConverter, Laser Stream Video, Ai Dealer, eBayMotors.Com, ADP, BZ Results, CarFolks.Com, NADA-24, NeoSynergy, SiSTer Technologies – Video Car Lot, DealMaker.Com, Reach Local, AdTel, DrivingSales.Com, G2PN, SmartWomenBuyCars.Com, Reora, Krash Creative Solutions, JL Media, Kihon Media and dozens of others pending approval.
