AdAgencyOnline.Net announced today that Philip Zelinger, the President of Ad Agency Online, L.L.C., (AAOL), and host of the blog talk radio station – WAAOL, All Automotive Advertising News All The Time – will be reviewing Kelley Blue Book, (KBB), on their “Automotive Advertising Experts” show on Friday 10/16/2009 between 12:00 Noon EST and 12:30 PM EST. The free automotive advertising resource/networking portal has earned a reputation as the “one stop site for all of your automotive advertising needs” as a result of the varied automotive advertising experts that have appeared on WAAOL to represent their cutting edge automotive advertising applications.

Philip will be interviewing Rob Lange, the National Sales Training Director for Kelley Blue Book, to discuss the various products and services offered by KBB. The show will be aired live with callers invited to ask questions of the pair of automotive advertising experts in a problem/solution forum. Past shows have surfaced best practices for automotive advertising agencies anxious to maximize the R.O.I. for every automotive advertising dollar in today’s struggling auto industry. Based on preliminary comments shared by Rob with Philip tomorrow’s show promises to provide the same for the affiliated automotive advertising agencies and auto dealer/vendor clients of AAOL as well as their growing online audience of automotive advertising decision makers.

Rob provided a teaser about what is to come on KBB in a conversation with Philip in advance of tomorrow’s show. “KBB is soon to launch our social networking site to help us connect with dealers, partners, vendors and interested industry folks so we can have open communication, share KBB product updates, gain feedback from partner dealers, allow registration for ongoing webinar programs on Kelley Blue Book products, sales tips etc. You are very familiar with all of the others……we needed/ wanted a way to stay in touch, learn, share and engage. I will tell you that this has not been released yet….we are working internally to get the bugs out and add content so I wouldn’t want to mention it by name / URL quite yet…but certainly we could introduce the idea and ask listeners to stay tuned for the official announcement within the next 2 weeks.”

The following article provides some additional insight to what is sure to be discussed during the interview according to both Philip and Rob;

AdAgencyOnline.Net reviews cutting edge automotive advertising applications for their affiliated automotive advertising agencies, auto dealer / vendor clients and site visitors. According to Philip Zelinger, the President of Ad Agency Online, L.L.C., (AAOL), and host of the blog talk radio station featured on AdAgencyOnline.Net – WAAOL, All Automotive Advertising News All The Time – Ai Media Group is on the short list to be approved as a preferred automotive advertising vendor on the free automotive advertising resource / networking portal.

Philip interviewed Sergio Alvarez, the COO of Ai Media Group on his blog talk radio show “Automotive Advertising Experts” that aired on May 15th 2009 to review their unique S.E.M. services. Philip and Sergio discussed best practices in Search Engine Marketing, (S.E.M.) in a problem / solution forum. The show is scheduled to run as an encore presentation today, Thursday, July 16, 2009 between 12:00 Noon EST and 12:30 PM EST and it is available as a downloadable podcast at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/adagencyonline .

Philip explained why Ai Media Group is being considered as a “preferred automotive advertising vendor” on AdAgencyOnline.Net, “I have always prioritized Search Engine Optimization, (S.E.O.), over Search Engine Marketing, (S.E.M.), because of my preference to develop long term branding messages for my auto dealer clients vs. short term digital marketing campaigns. My goal has always been to provide lasting “top of the mind awareness” to a targeted audience to build frequency through consistency to insure retention of the message. That said, I also recognize the need to jump start online marketing campaigns for new accounts through the use of Pay Per Click, (PPC), digital marketing campaigns often directed to specialized landing pages or micro-sites to extend the online footprint for my auto dealer clients who demand instant and verifiable results.”

“My interest in Ai Media Group was sparked by their proprietary software application that relies on an algorithmic formula to manage and monitor PPC campaigns in a scalable fashion providing efficiencies in the process that is not offered by other outsourced S.E.M. vendors that I have used. Of course the process is not completely automated; which is a good thing since the science of S.E.M. is best supported when it is managed and monitored by an experienced professional who knows what to look for when evaluating the volumes of data that is required to conduct a comprehensive PPC campaign. I was impressed by the knowledge and experience of the Ai Media Group’s support team and the diverse background that Sergio Alvarez represents. I have always valued people over product and price and I am confident that Ai Media Group provides the right mix of both.”

AdAgencyOnline.Net is a free automotive advertising resource / networking portal that evaluates cutting edge automotive advertising applications for their affiliated automotive advertising agencies and auto dealer/vendor clients. The site also has a growing number of visitors surfing the web for the latest and greatest online automotive advertising solutions. Philip Zelinger, the President of Ad Agency Online, L.L.C., (AAOL), and host of the blog talk radio station featured on AdAgencyOnline.Net – WAAOL, All Automotive Advertising News All The Time – reviewed ActivEngage in an on air interview with its co-founder Todd Smith that aired today, June 13th 2009 between 12:00 Noon EST and 12:30 PM EST.

Todd provided Philip with the following press release explaining the unique products and services offered by ActivEngage that prompted Philip to consider them as a preferred automotive advertising vendor for his affiliated automotive advertising agencies;

Orlando, Florida – (June 30, 2009) ActivEngage, the automotive industry’s premier provider of proactive live chat with business intelligence for dealer websites, today announced the latest release of their proprietary live chat software and services. The new enhancements were made based on direct feedback from dealers, consumer trends and the latest advancements in technology. The new version enables even more personalized communication with consumers, enhanced efficiency in lead management and advanced, consolidated reporting. Expanded capabilities let dealers collect more customer intelligence from site visitors to guide communication, both during and after chat sessions, and move even more shoppers through the sales cycle.

Enhanced efficiencies include sending chat leads to specific departments; parts leads can be sent directly to the parts department, service leads to the service department, new car leads to new car sales, etc. Alternatively, depending on the size and organizational structure of the dealership, all leads can be sent to a single person. In addition, dealers can now survey website visitors. These fully customizable surveys are available for both pre and post-chat, allowing dealers to collect valuable data from visitors both before and after chat sessions. Pre-chat survey information is also included in the chat window, enabling chat agents to use this knowledge to help guide conversations.

In addition, all text from chat transcripts is now available in database format for reporting. For example, dealers can monitor the number of times any particular make or model was discussed in chat. This business intelligence can then be used to inform special offers and promotions, based on what the majority of consumers are looking for at the dealership website. Real-time form-field tracking also lets dealers monitor visitors’ online form entries as shoppers actually enter the information. This data is also captured even if shoppers do not complete and submit the entire form. Further, completed form-field values are now shown in the chat window, along with complete visit details.

Fully customizable reports are also available, allowing dealers to view and mine data in the format best suited for their dealership’s unique needs. Consolidated reporting, across multiple websites, is another new feature of the system upgrade. Reporting is now available in a single location, for dealerships with a single website, or dealer groups with 100 websites. The upgrades also include advanced server detection and tracking that make it easier to identify where shoppers come from. This increases the automated, custom actions that can be performed when triggered from shoppers’ actions at the website.

“We spend a lot of time talking to our dealers and we take their ideas and requests very seriously,” commented ActivEngage co-founder Ted Rubin. “The latest version of our live chat software and services includes upgrades and advanced features that have been rigorously tested and are proven to help dealers move more previously anonymous site visitors through the sales funnel. The enhanced reporting capabilities also increase the business intelligence dealers can use to guide and continuously improve communication, based on what’s working best for site visitors.”

AdAgencyOnline.Net is an automotive advertising focused social networking portal hosted by Ad Agency Online, L.L.C., (AAOL). The site reviews cutting edge automotive advertising technologies and vendor applications on their blog talk radio station – WAAOL, All Automotive Advertising News All The Time – to share best practices with the affiliated automotive advertising agencies, auto dealer/vendor clients of AAOL and a growing audience of automotive advertising insiders who follow and support the site. Philip Zelinger, the President of AAOL and host of WAAOL recently announced his support for several new technologies and digital marketing applications that can be applied to an old world automotive advertising platform – Point of Purchase, (P.O.P.), Merchandising.

Philip explained the past and pending role of P.O.P. merchandising for automobile dealerships and how new technologies have allowed automotive advertising agencies and auto dealers to consider adding it to their limited automotive advertising budgets. “After investing 25 plus years as a General Manager and Dealer Principal, followed by the last 10 years advising my affiliated automotive advertising agencies and auto dealer clients on how to maximize the R.O.I. for their automotive advertising dollars, I am still amazed how proven old world advertising methods are being re-invented by today’s technology.”

“One of my affiliated automotive advertising agencies, DealerKnows, Inc. – owned and operated by Joe Webb and Gilbert Chavez, has announced their involvement in a new company, DealerSignage, Inc., (DS), that provides custom content delivered directly to the T.V. in an auto dealer’s customer lounge. This kind of automotive advertising message delivered to a captive targeted audience in an auto dealership’s facility to his existing customers has an experienced R.O.I. that can only increase as the quality of the content is improved.”

“Another automotive advertising solution tied to P.O.P. is provided by a vendor client of AAOL – Argisitics, L.L.C. and their AutoTransaXion platform. Argistics has developed a dynamic interactive video wall supported by their AutoTransaXion application – a customer interaction platform – that can be placed in an auto dealership’s service lounge or showroom offering informational videos linked directly to an expert sales or service advisor at the dealership. The process uses Argistics’ proprietary two way video customer interaction platform integrated with the auto dealer’s CRM and DMS to push and pull any information that the customer or the dealer needs to move towards a sale. The ability to promote sales and service specials within the dealership, or even to cross-sell various brands and models for a dealership that represents multiple franchises from one location linked to many others, is just one example of the new marketing capabilities presented by this method of P.O.P. merchandising.”

“PrimeTyme, Inc. is yet another vendor/client of AAOL that has joined the P.O.P. revolution with their unique video panel. The panel is only 1/8″ thick and it can be cut to any size or shape to display a crystal clear video signal with any content that can be delivered to a computer or T.V. screen. The obvious application for the content delivered by DealerSignage or the unique interactive information center provided by Argistics is the future of P.O.P. merchandising and the reason it has earned a place in any automotive advertising plan.”

About Argistics, L.L.C.

Argistics LLC., is a leading developer of CIM software solutions to contact centers, BPO’s, and retailers worldwide. Based in Marietta, GA, Argistics is the developer of web based solutions to assist companies in engaging their customers through video and chat technology and to help online customer’s complete web based interactions.

About DealerKnows, Inc., DealerSignage, L.L.C. and PrimeTyme, Inc.

Gilbert Chavez, the CEO of DealerSignage,(DS), Joe Webb, the COO of DS and Keith Williams, the CTO and VP of DS joined forces to address the growing importance of point of purchase merchandizing for auto dealers’ and the advantage of using digital signage to deliver timely and targeted automotive advertising messages to an auto dealer’s current customers as well as drive by traffic. Joe Webb and Gilbert Chavez are also partnered in a related auto industry focused consulting firm, DealerKnows, Inc. DealerKnows is an independent automotive advertising consulting firm that is an affiliated office of Ad Agency Online, L.L.C.

Dealer Signage provides the software, hardware, content and consulting services to deliver a targeted marketing message in an auto dealership through televisions strategically placed in key locations throughout the dealership. The ability to cross-sell between sales and service with a custom dealer message delivered in an active border wrapped around a live T.V. broadcast allows a dealer to talk to their existing customers. Specialized hardware and software provided by select vendors allows Dealer Signage to use state of the art technology to customize not only the content but the method of delivery.

PrimeTyme, an approved vendor of Ad Agency Online, L.L.C. that was introduced to Dealer Signage, provides a proprietary video projection screen that can be placed on a showroom window, a wall or even as a free standing panel to allow the dealer to provide an interactive experience for customers visiting the showroom or even to pedestrian and drive by traffic outside the showroom. The digital billboard value of this application is obvious; however, the more unique ability to allow customers to actually touch the screen to interact with the message opens up a new world of opportunities. In addition to being able to answer questions to draw customers into the showroom the technology is able to track the people who stop to watch the screen with existing facial recognition software. The next generation of applications being developed promise to provide verifiable R.O.I. and extended marketing methods that will further enhance the value of the services provided by Dealer Signage.

AdAgencyOnline.Net is an automotive advertising resource / networking portal designed to share best practices with their online following of automotive advertising agencies, production partners and select auto industry vendors that share their stated vision to “blur the line between the real and the virtual world.” AutoIndustryInsights.Com has a similar focus however they have extended their audience and message by linking to a number of established automotive advertising social networking sites to include issues that are relevant to automotive advertising agencies, auto dealers, auto industry vendors and even consumers anxious to listen and learn from the site’s featured “Auto Industry Insiders.” Philip Zelinger, the President of Ad Agency Online, L.L.C. and host of the blog talk radio station – WAAOL, All Automotive Advertising News All The Time – featured on www.AdAgencyOnline.Net expressed his support for www.AutoIndustryInsights.Com site and their anchor sponsor www.EveryCarListed.Com on the blog talk radio show “Lunch With Phil Discussing Automotive Advertising” that aired on WAAOL on Wednesday, June 3rd 2009. The show is available as a podcast by visiting http://www.blogtalkradio.com/adagencyonline or http://adagencyonline.net.

Philip Zelinger explained his reasons for selecting EveryCarListed.Com as a preferred automotive advertising vendor on Ad AgencyOnline.Net and his support for their automotive advertising social networking site AutoIndustryInsights.Com, “After 25 years as a General Manager, Executive Dealer Principal and then Auto Dealer, followed by my past 10 years running automotive advertising agencies representing auto dealers and auto industry vendors, I have a unique empathy for my auto dealer / vendor clients. Today’s troubled economy has placed a new urgency on maximizing R.O.I. on all levels. The Internet and the technology driven digital marketing applications and selling systems that are being built to take advantage of the World Wide Web to sell cars and service are growing too fast for the average auto dealer or automotive advertising agency to keep up. AdAgencyOnline.Net serves as a filter of sorts to review cutting edge automotive advertising applications for automotive advertising agencies, however, consumers can be just as confused by the many new resources that they have available on the Internet. Social networking sites populated by fellow consumers provide a new way to share shopping experiences between likeminded consumers before, during and after their purchase however they are missing the auto dealer’s side of the story. Similarly, auto dealers are becoming increasingly aware of the need for them to understand their online customer’s needs in today’s troubled times. AutoIndustryInsights.Com was designed by EveryCarListed.Com to act as a bridge to provide the “inside story” to anyone that visits the site. The “Auto Industry Insiders” section represents several highly respected individuals as well as the auto industry social networking sites and blogging forums that they host.”
