AdAgencyOnline.Net is an automotive advertising focused social networking portal hosted by Ad Agency Online, L.L.C., (AAOL). The site reviews cutting edge automotive advertising technologies and vendor applications on their blog talk radio station – WAAOL, All Automotive Advertising News All The Time – to share best practices with the affiliated automotive advertising agencies, auto dealer/vendor clients of AAOL and a growing audience of automotive advertising insiders who follow and support the site. Philip Zelinger, the President of AAOL and host of WAAOL recently announced his support for several new technologies and digital marketing applications that can be applied to an old world automotive advertising platform – Point of Purchase, (P.O.P.), Merchandising.
Philip explained the past and pending role of P.O.P. merchandising for automobile dealerships and how new technologies have allowed automotive advertising agencies and auto dealers to consider adding it to their limited automotive advertising budgets. “After investing 25 plus years as a General Manager and Dealer Principal, followed by the last 10 years advising my affiliated automotive advertising agencies and auto dealer clients on how to maximize the R.O.I. for their automotive advertising dollars, I am still amazed how proven old world advertising methods are being re-invented by today’s technology.”
“One of my affiliated automotive advertising agencies, DealerKnows, Inc. – owned and operated by Joe Webb and Gilbert Chavez, has announced their involvement in a new company, DealerSignage, Inc., (DS), that provides custom content delivered directly to the T.V. in an auto dealer’s customer lounge. This kind of automotive advertising message delivered to a captive targeted audience in an auto dealership’s facility to his existing customers has an experienced R.O.I. that can only increase as the quality of the content is improved.”
“Another automotive advertising solution tied to P.O.P. is provided by a vendor client of AAOL – Argisitics, L.L.C. and their AutoTransaXion platform. Argistics has developed a dynamic interactive video wall supported by their AutoTransaXion application – a customer interaction platform – that can be placed in an auto dealership’s service lounge or showroom offering informational videos linked directly to an expert sales or service advisor at the dealership. The process uses Argistics’ proprietary two way video customer interaction platform integrated with the auto dealer’s CRM and DMS to push and pull any information that the customer or the dealer needs to move towards a sale. The ability to promote sales and service specials within the dealership, or even to cross-sell various brands and models for a dealership that represents multiple franchises from one location linked to many others, is just one example of the new marketing capabilities presented by this method of P.O.P. merchandising.”
“PrimeTyme, Inc. is yet another vendor/client of AAOL that has joined the P.O.P. revolution with their unique video panel. The panel is only 1/8″ thick and it can be cut to any size or shape to display a crystal clear video signal with any content that can be delivered to a computer or T.V. screen. The obvious application for the content delivered by DealerSignage or the unique interactive information center provided by Argistics is the future of P.O.P. merchandising and the reason it has earned a place in any automotive advertising plan.”

About DealerKnows, Inc., DealerSignage, L.L.C. and PrimeTyme, Inc.
Gilbert Chavez, the CEO of DealerSignage,(DS), Joe Webb, the COO of DS and Keith Williams, the CTO and VP of DS joined forces to address the growing importance of point of purchase merchandizing for auto dealers’ and the advantage of using digital signage to deliver timely and targeted automotive advertising messages to an auto dealer’s current customers as well as drive by traffic. Joe Webb and Gilbert Chavez are also partnered in a related auto industry focused consulting firm, DealerKnows, Inc. DealerKnows is an independent automotive advertising consulting firm that is an affiliated office of Ad Agency Online, L.L.C.
Dealer Signage provides the software, hardware, content and consulting services to deliver a targeted marketing message in an auto dealership through televisions strategically placed in key locations throughout the dealership. The ability to cross-sell between sales and service with a custom dealer message delivered in an active border wrapped around a live T.V. broadcast allows a dealer to talk to their existing customers. Specialized hardware and software provided by select vendors allows Dealer Signage to use state of the art technology to customize not only the content but the method of delivery.
PrimeTyme, an approved vendor of Ad Agency Online, L.L.C. that was introduced to Dealer Signage, provides a proprietary video projection screen that can be placed on a showroom window, a wall or even as a free standing panel to allow the dealer to provide an interactive experience for customers visiting the showroom or even to pedestrian and drive by traffic outside the showroom. The digital billboard value of this application is obvious; however, the more unique ability to allow customers to actually touch the screen to interact with the message opens up a new world of opportunities. In addition to being able to answer questions to draw customers into the showroom the technology is able to track the people who stop to watch the screen with existing facial recognition software. The next generation of applications being developed promise to provide verifiable R.O.I. and extended marketing methods that will further enhance the value of the services provided by Dealer Signage.
