AdAgencyOnline.Net Analyzes Impact Of Chrysler Bankruptcy On Automotive Advertising With Attorney Lewis Kuhl

AdAgencyOnline.Net is an automotive advertising resource / networking portal that usually focuses on reviewing cutting edge automotive advertising technologies and Internet based applications for their online audience of auto industry insiders, automotive advertising agencies and auto dealers. Philip Zelinger, the President of Ad Agency Online, L.L.C., (AAOL), and host of the blog talk radio station – WAAOL, All Automotive Advertising News All The Time – featured on AdAgencyOnline.Net, will address the growing concerns of the automotive advertising industry regarding the bankruptcy of Chrysler and the potential bankruptcy of General Motors on his show, Lunch With Phil Discussing Automotive Advertising, in an interview with attorney Lewis Kuhl. The anticipated informative exchange of information on the changing landscape of the auto industry is scheduled to be broadcast live Monday, May 18th 2009 between 12:00 Noon EST and 12:30 PM EST on http://www.blogtalkradio.com/adagencyonline .

The blog talk radio show is an open business meeting with the affiliated automotive advertising agencies and auto dealer / vendor clients of AAOL that shares best practices with the online audience of automotive advertising decision makers who tune into WAAOL to listen and learn from Philip Zelinger and his invited guests. Philip explained his reasons for inviting Lewis Kuhl to help him analyze the impact of the recent and pending bankruptcies in the auto industry, “It is obvious that automotive advertising agencies can’t keep doing business as usual in the wake of the consolidation in the auto industry. While I continue to counsel my affiliated automotive advertising agencies and auto dealer clients to maintain their market share through both conventional and Internet based digital advertising campaigns I recognize that reduced sales volumes brought about by conditions beyond the control of auto dealers requires special consideration. Conventional wisdoms in automotive advertising are built on free market principals and human nature with experienced success insuring a projected R.O.I. Unfortunately, the artificial and in some ways arbitrary decisions by the administration to reduce the number of Chrysler and General Motors dealerships has created a dynamic that does not follow established principals. Since the rules have changed through a legal process I thought it best to talk to someone who can shed some light on what is happening in the Bankruptcy Courts and how it will impact the auto industry as we know it. I have known and trusted Lewis Kuhl for many years and I have relied on his expertise in dealing with a variety of issues that I faced as both an auto dealer and an automotive advertising agency. Frankly, I couldn’t think of a more experienced attorney to turn to for advice on how to deal with the issues that are facing the automotive advertising industry in today’s troubled economy.”
