Is Your Ego Limiting The Success Of Your Dealership? Automotive Marketing Community

Is Your Ego Limiting The Success Of Your Dealership?

I had a distinct feeling of “Deja Vu” as I read Brian Pasch’s listing of dealer group responses to why they do not educate more people in their dealerships… Let me add one more relevant example – During the ADM Boot Camp Scholarship Video Contest i received a call from a dealer who planned on submitting an entry video, and he wanted to know how much he would need to “donate” in order to win.  I explained the rules of the contest and encouraged him to get as many of his 400 employees as possible to visit ADM, register and click “Promote” so their co-worker could win.  The dealer’s response was something along the lines of “I don’t mind my managers knowing about the ADM site, but I am afraid that if my sales people or other staff joined ADM they might learn enough to get higher paying jobs at other dealerships…”

Richard Bustillo ADM Boot Camp Scholarship – Automotive Professional Community

Richard Bustillo Automotive Boot Camp Scholarship

Richard Bustillo’s ADM Boot Camp Scholarship video application is compelling because he bases his bid on the simple fact that his dealership implements what they learn at conferences like the upcoming Automotive Boot Camp in Las Vegas in May…. Bravo to Mr. Bustillo and I encourage everyone to use the link to visit this video’s ADM page and click the “Promote” thumbs up button to show your support for this scholarship application.

From the Trenches – Ralph Paglia’s “Fundamental” Presentation at DD12 – Automotive Digital Marketing Professional Community

From the Trenches – Ralph Paglia’s “Fundamental” Presentation at DD12 

Tom Gorham writes: “For those of us that have been on the Internet side of this business for what seems like a lifetime, Ralph’s presentation was validation and a wonderful reminder of how we got here and the vastness of the current digital landscape that is still growing at exponential rates.  But the class was listed as “Fundamental” for a reason.  For dealers and sales managers who always thought the Internet was simple, “Just getting leads, sending emails, and selling cars,” it was a brilliant demonstration of the length and breadth and depth of knowledge behind the current position of Internet Management and Digital Marketing.  I’m a hands-on Internet Sales & Marketing Manager who likes to do a lot of the nitty-gritty detail work myself.  And if I out-source something, I like to constantly collaborate with the company I hire.  I truly appreciate a vendor who understands and respects my need to be involved and not just hand over responsibility for the job at hand.”  Use the link provided to read the entire article…
