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

Ad Agency Online, L.L.C. Presents New Automotive Advertising Site – Auto Industry Insights

Ad Agency Online, L.L.C., (AAOL), is a full service automotive advertising agency. AAOL developed a proprietary online communication / distribution system to leverage the resources of their national network of independent affiliated automotive advertising agencies, production partners and select vendors to serve their auto dealership and vendor clients. In December of 2001 AAOL extended their Internet presence and services to their clients by developing a free automotive advertising resource / networking portal – https://adagencyonline.net – that hosts an online blog talk radio station – WAAOL, All Automotive Advertising News All The Time. The site and blog talk radio station focus on common problems experienced by a struggling auto industry in a problem / solution format. Their goal is to share best practices with site visitors with the philosophy that a “rising tide floats all boats.”

Philip Zelinger, the President of AAOL and host of WAAOL’s blog talk radio shows, has recently referenced a new auto industry focused social networking site being developed for a vendor client of AAOL – EveryCarListed.Com, (ECL). ECL is also a “preferred automotive advertising vendor” on AdAgencyOnline.Net and Philip is a regular contributor to the blog site currently hosted on ECL, http://blog.everycarlisted.com/ . The new “network of networkers” planned by ECL will be titled “Auto Industry Insights”, (AII), and it will supplement the blogs and industry issues discussed on the internal ECL blog site. The auto industry focused platform will draw on a diverse group of recognized auto industry experts and their established online communities.

About Auto Industry Insights

Auto Industry Insights will be an open forum for the auto industry headed by an advisory panel made up of established automotive advertising insiders and supported by their existing auto industry social networking/blogging sites. The panel and contributing online communities includes; ADM – hosted by Ralph Paglia, www.DealerRefresh.Com – hosted by Jeff Kershner, www.DrivingsSales.Com – hosted by Jared Hamilton, http://imacsweb.typepad.com/ – hosted by Gary May, http://www.scottmonty.com/ – hosted by Scott Monty, www.askpatty.com – hosted by Jody Devere and https://adagencyonline.net hosted by Philip Zelinger.

The portal is being developed as a consumer/dealer/consultant facing social networking site supported by – www.everycarlisted.com (ECL) – an auto industry inventory website that will be driving traffic to the networking community through existing strategic partnerships as well as both conventional and online marketing investments. The concept is to establish a “network of networkers” with a priority on content sourced from auto industry consultants, auto dealers that have their own blogging forums and even consumers that have registered with ECL. The site will be promoted to share “best practices” and real world experiences.

The official launch of AII is hoped to coincide with the 6th Digital Dealer Conference being held at the Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas from April 19, 2009 to April 21, 2009, however, the exact date has yet to be announced. According to Philip Zelinger, “AII is a collaboration of a group of qualified professionals who will be contributing their knowledge and relationships to this common effort to advance Internet marketing. It is a project that can’t be rushed, and social networking sites are not commercial ventures so we have no reason to do so. Our goal is to share best practices and develop an online community of likeminded automotive advertising professionals and auto dealers who will follow AII to listen and learn so they can presume to teach. Consumers will share their experiences before, during and after their shopping or servicing experience in both the real and the virtual world and all parties will benefit from their input. I will confirm that we are past the developmental stage and we are now focusing on drawing content from a variety of sources. This will be an ongoing effort so, technically, we will never be done! Of course, the 6th Digital Dealer Conference would be a great place and time to start so that is our objective.”
