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

Ad Agency Online, L.L.C. Recommends eBayMotors To Automotive Advertising Agencies

AdAgencyOnline.Net is attracting automotive advertising agencies who share their vision to “blur the line between the real and the virtual automobile dealership showroom.” The free automotive advertising resource portal is hosted by Ad Agency Online, L.L.C., a national network of independent affiliated automotive advertising agencies linked by an online operating system developed by Philip Zelinger, the President of Ad Agency Online L.L.C. and host of AdAgencyOnline.Net. Auto dealers are demanding that their automotive advertising agencies integrate online resources into their marketing plans to accommodate budget reductions dictated by a shrinking auto industry. According to Philip Zelinger, “eBayMotors.Com is an iconic Internet based automotive advertising platform that has earned a key position in any comprehensive online advertising strategy.”

eBay Motors is part of eBay Inc., the Internet’s largest marketplace for buying and selling all things automotive. The site offers everyday cars for everyday drivers, as well as collector cars, motorcycles, auto parts and accessories. eBay Motors is consistently ranked the No. 1 automotive site on the Web by Nielsen/NetRatings and the auto dealers that post with them are sharing in their success.

AdagencyOnline.Net , previously interviewed Clayton Stanfield, Senior Manager Dealer Training for eBay Motors, on their blog talk radio station, “WAAOL, All Automotive Advertising News All The Time.” Requests from his affiliated automotive advertising agencies and auto dealer clients motivated Mr. Zelinger to post an encore presentation of the interview on the “Automotive Advertising Experts” show that ran on Friday, December 12th between 12:00 Noon EST and 12:30 PM EST.

Site visitors were invited to listen and learn about eBay Motors unique automotive advertising platform. Interviews like this one, and the variety of other free automotive advertising resources offered on the site including an online Dealer 20+ Group and senior account executive consultations, have earned them a reputation in the automotive advertising industry as “The One Stop Site For All Of Your Automotive Advertising Needs.” The interview discussed “best practices” suggested by eBayMotors.Com with examples of the latest tricks of the trade being utilized by eBay Motors as well as questions called in by site visitors in a problem/solution format.

Philip Zelinger commented on his reasons for recognizing eBay Motors as a preferred automotive advertising vendor, “Many of our affiliated automotive advertising agencies and their auto dealer clients are satisfied customers of eBay Motors. Today’s tough economic times and reduced automotive advertising budgets have challenged us to offer more for less and to maximize the R.O.I. for all applications that we recommend to our automotive advertising agency partners and their auto dealer clients. Clayton has been a welcome guest on WAAOL many times and he always provides information that improves our use of their valued resources. Online automotive advertising is an integral part of any comprehensive automotive advertising plan and eBay Motors is a key vendor that we proudly present to our valued auto dealer clients.

Site visitors called in questions that included asking for word tracks to teach their staff as a guide drawn from best practices being used by the big Ebay dealers. Another caller had a list of questions that Clayton answered directly;

#1 As a small independent dealer, what is the most cost effective way to set up an eBay store.

#2 Can & how do I compete with the big boys? Will the competitive playing field be level?

#3 My goal is to sell 30+ cars monthly within 3 to 4 months of my eBay start up. Are my expectations too high since I have no budget for the hiring of a consultant to set this up?

#4 How/who do I contact to get started TODAY??

These questions were answered by Clayton and Philip with real world examples that supported their confidence in eBay Motors to solve these common concerns. Automotive advertising agencies and auto dealers were directed to join eBay Motors by going directly to their site, (www.ebaymotors.com) to post their inventory or they were invited to visit https://adagencyonline.net to request an account executive to assist them in the process.

The auto industry is being forced to reduce production and advertising costs on all levels including reductions in staff and automotive advertising budgets. Bailout plans being considered do not directly address the issues being faced by auto dealers and automotive advertising agencies. The solution that has surfaced to survive in a shrinking auto industry has been to look to technology and the internet to leverage resources and to manage and monitor all automotive advertising applications to maximize R.O.I.

New Internet based automotive advertising vendors are being reviewed and recommended by the online networking community of independent affiliated automotive advertising agencies that leverage their resources through AdAgencyOnline.Net. Mr. Zelinger explained the unique business model that he developed as Ad Agency Online, L.L.C. in December of 2001 that has matured into the online community now being supported by AdAgencyOnline.Net.

“Unlike auto dealers, automotive advertising agencies deal with files and intellectual properties that can be stored on a computer and distributed via the Internet. Our proprietary online operating system allows our agency partners to outsource the majority of their production requirements to our linked vendor partners. In addition, our leveraged negotiations with automotive advertising vendors that have developed cutting edge applications to improve selling processes using new digital technology have allowed us to reduce staff for our automotive advertising partners as well as their auto dealer clients. The resulting efficiencies on all levels provide a competitive product and price for our clients allowing them to survive in our troubled economy.”
