A Resource Portal for Automotive Dealers, Industry Vendors and Advertising Agencies

Ad Agency Online, L.L.C. Links Automotive Advertising Networks To EveryCarListed.Com

Ad Agency Online, L.L.C., (AAOL), is a network of independent affiliated automotive advertising agencies that are joined together through their online communication / distribution system to leverage their resources in both the real and the virtual world. EveryCarListed.Com is a vendor/client of Ad Agency Online, L.L.C., as well as a preferred automotive advertising vendor on the free auto industry social networking portal – https://adagencyonline.net – hosted by AAOL.

The auto industry has turned to the Internet for more cost effective ways to market to consumers. Auto dealers are also using the World Wide Web to select automotive advertising agencies and auto industry vendors that can provide cutting edge automotive advertising applications to help them sell vehicles and service. Social networking sites are being developed as an open forum to allow site visitors to share experiences as well as ideas when deciding who to do business with. AAOL’s use of AdAgencyOnline.Net has proven that these open forums can benefit agencies, dealers, vendors and consumers alike. They have matured their use of social networking sites to new levels by integrating them into their client’s websites as added value to site visitors and to increase the search engine optimization, SEO, of the parent site.

One planned example of this enhanced use and integration of social networking in the automotive advertising industry is a blog based site – “Auto Industry Insights” – that AAOL will be linking to EveryCarListed.Com, (ECL). ECL is an inventory based automotive advertising website that is using their projected one million plus per month unique site visitors by the end of the 1st quarter of 2009 to support reciprocal links to established auto industry blogging sites and auto industry experts with a loyal following of consumers and/or auto dealers. Based on existing and pending online strategic partnerships, conventional and Internet advertising investments and projected search engine marketing, (SEM), investments the site traffic to ECL is conservatively expected to exceed two million visitors by the 4th quarter of 2009. By leveraging the site traffic of ECL with that of the selected auto industry social networking sites the combined audience and SEO will exceed anything that the individual sites could produce. More importantly, the combined platform of all of the contributors will develop a “one stop site” opportunity for consumers, automotive advertising agencies, auto industry vendors and OEM representatives to share best practices and to listen, learn or teach about all aspects of the auto industry across all channels.

Additional content and enhanced SEO for the new social networking portal hosted by ECL – Auto Industry Insights – will be provided by contributing auto dealers that post their inventory on ECL as well as consumers that open an online account with ECL. The “cross channel” communications between consultants, auto dealers and customers will provide dialogue and insights not available through separate lines of communication now established in either the real of the virtual world and it will serve as a key differentiator for his forum as well as ECL.

Philip Zelinger, the President of Ad Agency Online, L.L.C. and host of his own automotive advertising portal – AdAgencyOnline.Net, features a blog talk radio station – WAAOL, All Automotive Advertising News All The Time . Mr. Zelinger used his blog talk radio show, “Lunch With Phil Discussing Automotive Advertising,” to invite auto industry insiders with an established online audience to join him on the new auto industry social networking site he is developing for his vendor/client EveryCarListed.Com. According to Mr. Zelinger, “The response from my online friends and fellow auto industry consultants has been fantastic. We are planning our first meeting of the “Advisory Counsel” for our shared portal – “Auto Industry Insights” – at the NADA Convention in New Orleans between January 24th and January 27th 2009. I am honored by the support of the qualified and experienced auto industry insiders and automotive advertising experts that have committed their time, wisdom and existing auto industry social networking sites to this shared opportunity. I will be meeting with Dale Boone and Darrell Campbell from EveryCarListed.Com to narrow down the applicants to select the six “best of the best” to serve on the senior advisory panel and to contribute articles and reciprocal links to the portal. At this time we have commitments from more qualified candidates than we can invite, however, our first confirmed member is Ralph Paglia, the host of an auto industry networking site that I personally support, www.automotivedigitalmarketing.com ,(ADM). Ralph is the National Director of Digital Marketing for ADP and he also hosts a blog talk radio show on AdAgencyOnline.Net called, “Lunch With Ralph Discussing Automotive Advertising.” I anticipate that some of the other panel members will be selected from guests that I have interviewed on another of our blog talk radio shows, “Automotive Advertising Experts.”
