Philip Zelinger, the President of Ad Agency Online, L.L.C. and host of the blog talk radio station featured on the automotive advertising resource/networking portal AdAgencyOnline.Net — WAAOL, All Automotive Advertising News All The Time, advised automotive advertising agencies to attend The 9th Digital Dealer Conference & Exposition. Philip announced his support of the conference during his blog talk radio show, Lunch With Phil Discussing Automotive Advertising, that aired on July, 05, 2010.
Philip commented on his participation in all eight of the previous Digital Dealer Conferences along with some details about the theme for the Fall 2010 conference to be held at The Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas October 12-14, 2010, “I have been invited to host sessions on automotive advertising for the past eight Digital Dealer Conferences and I am proud to accept their invitation to submit my proposal for the 9th Digital Dealer Conference & Exposition. Their theme is — New Ideas, New Revenues, New Efficiencies, Greater Profits — and it couldn’t be a better fit for today’s struggling auto industry. I have submitted my proposed session for approval — C2C + B2B = B2C SQUARED; Learn How This New Social Media Formula Provides New Revenues, New Efficiencies and Greater Profits — and I have already started preparing the material to support my formula on monetizing social media for automotive advertising agencies.”
The Digital Dealer Conferences represent an opportunity for auto dealers to listen and learn from automotive advertising experts like Philip Zelinger and dozens more like him that share a philosophy that a rising tide floats all boats. The sessions conducted by these auto industry professionals sharing best practices in online automotive advertising are complimented by the exhibits presented by various automotive advertising and auto industry vendors who support the conference. In addition to the attending the sessions and visiting the exhibits most auto dealers and automotive advertising agencies take advantage of the social networking that takes place in this real world venue to build on the relationships that they have matured throughout the year in their online social networking communities.
Philip discussed his planned meetings at The 9th Digital Dealer Conference & Exposition with the confidence that they represent a key reason for his participation in the conferences, “I have a personal branding line that represents my philosophy in both my personal and business life — What are friends for! I have found that relationship based selling is the key to success in the retail auto industry. My previous experience as an Auto Dealer and my present role as the President of a national network of independent affiliated automotive advertising agencies has taught me that people like to do business with people that they like. My formula for monetizing social media for automotive advertising agencies relies on the fact the market is a conversation amongst friends. I see the Digital Dealer Conference as a real world version of the virtual world network that I have formed for myself as well as my auto dealer and vendor clients to extend our spheres of influence and expand our top of the mind awareness to potential customers.”
“One of the vendors that will take up a great deal of my networking time at the conference will be ronsmap. ronsmap is a vendor client of Ad Agency Online that has developed a consumer centric inventory based marketing platform and search engine portal that allows online shoppers to ask an online friend about the dealership and the vehicles that they are considering. Customer to customer conversations in both the real and the virtual world provide more relevancy, transparency and exposure for the auto dealers that are being discussed than any conventional marketing media can provide. ronsmap relies on these online friends to virally distribute the marketing messages for the auto dealers that post their inventory on their site and the Digital Dealer Conference will be a great way to share their solution with our real world friends.”
“As my formula to monetize social media suggests, business to business conversations can be equally valuable for automotive advertising agencies, auto dealers and auto industry vendors anxious to extend their online reputation beyond their own websites and current customers. AdAgencyOnline.Net hosts a network of networkers — Auto Industry Insiders — supported by several of my friends in the automotive advertising industry who are expected to join me and mine at the conference. Ralph Paglia – http://AutomotiveDigitalMarketing.com, Jared Hamilton – http://DrivingSales.Com, Brian Pasch – http://www.InternetSalesmanager.Org , Keith Whann – http://Auttr.Com, Chris Saraceno – http://DealerElite.Net, Jody Devere – http://AskPatty.Com and Scott Monty – http://ScottMonty.Com are all valued friends online as well as in the real world that I hope to meet with at the conference to discuss shared opportunities. After all, what are friends and the Digital Dealer Conference for!”
