Philip Zelinger, the President of Ad Agency Online L.L.C. and host of an automotive advertising resource portal http://AdAgencyOnline.Net, reviewed a new auto industry social networking club organized by Ken Gibson, the Automotive Digital Mastery Club. The pair of auto industry experts shared their visions for the growing role of social networking for automotive advertising agencies while discussing the new online community on the blog talk radio show Auto Industry Insiders featured on AdAgencyOnline.Net. The show aired on Thursday, March 10th, 2011.
Philip has agreed to support the new online resource community by contributing as a Subject Matter Expert, (SME), specializing in Technology Integration and Vendor Negotiations. A number of equally respected auto and automotive advertising industry consultants were mentioned as potential qualified contributors, however, Philip was quick to point out that formal invitations have yet to be delivered or accepted.
“Professionals like Ralph Paglia, Brian Pasch, Jared Hamilton, Chris Saraceno, Keith Whann, Scott Monty and Jody Devere have already invested their time to develop and support their own online networking communities. Each of these official Auto Industry Insiders have proven their support of sharing best practices by linking to our Network Of Networkers. I am confident that they would see the value in any additional efforts to educate our shared online friends. However, individual obligations, personal agendas or potential conflicts of interest might preclude them from participating in the Automotive Digital Mastery Club. Similarly, consultants referenced during the show like Joe Webb, Mark Dubis, Gary May and others are under no obligation to join or support Ken’s new online community. The on air discussion with Ken introducing his new forum was intended to surface the shared opportunity for their consideration and to hold them up as shining examples of the quality of the professionals that Ken hopes to attract. After all, what are friends for!”
