About David Johnson

David Johnson is the Social Media Strategist for Next Generation Dealer Services and the author of PersuasiveConcepts.com. He has held Social Media Seminars for auto dealers all over the country and has designed, trained, and implemented social media strategies for dozens of different industries. He is considered by many to be on the forefront of automotive social media for both sales and service. What sets David apart from others in his field is that he is a true “car guy,” cutting his teeth behind the desk, so to speak. David has produced various videos and hosted several webinars, podcasts and posts on auto industry focused social networking sites which have extended his online reputation.

David got into the car business in 2001 at a Ford, Mercury store just outside of Pensacola Florida.  After a successful period selling cars he accepted the challenge to take over the dealership’s Internet department where he perfected his phone skills.  His success in sales earned him the opportunity to start a BDC to apply his skills to a team effort where hired an assistant and 5 people resulting in a 500% increase showroom traffic.

After a few years the dealership was sold so David moved his family to Portland, Or and he traveled the country setting up and training business development centers for a consulting company. After 3 years he went out on his own working in other industries and training businesses on how to use the web to build their business, through both SEO and Social Media.  After a  year working in many different industries David began to apply his new found experience exclusively in the car business and he now works with auto dealers coaching them on how to use social media to build a community around their brand.  He also offers the option to act as an outsourced social media department that can and will handle all social media channels for the dealership.

About Next Generation Dealer Services

Next Generation Dealer Services is a relationship company that shows auto dealers, through the strategic use of social media, how to connect with and build community around their brand. They have two levels, soon to be three levels of consulting work that they do for auto dealers.

The first level is coaching. They coach a dealer on how to use social media by spending time in the store working with each department, assigning certain tasks to certain people and then follow up on a weekly and monthly basis to ensure that things are moving along in the right direction and to offer advice.

The second level is their outsourced social media department where they handle everything from Facebook engagement and blog post writing, to running contests and performing Twitter functions. They even do ongoing training with the sales force and teach them how to harness the power of social media.

The third level, that’s soon to come, is a self paced “subscription site” that will have hundreds of hours of videos, podcasts and webinars as well as written posts and downloads that will cover every department in a dealership.
