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

AdAgencyOnline.Net Offers Free Automotive Advertising With Social Networking Site On EveryCarListed.Com

Ad Agency Online, L.L.C., (AAOL), has added another leveraged resource for their network of independent affiliated automotive advertising agencies to extend their services through the use of a new auto industry social networking portal they are creating for their vendor/client – www.EveryCarListed.Com. The automotive advertising agencies linked by the Internet based communication / distribution system developed by AAOL have been promoting EveryCarListed.Com as a preferred automotive advertising vendor on the free auto industry social networking portal – https://adagencyonline.net – hosted by AAOL.

The auto industry has turned to the Internet for cost effective ways to market to consumers. Auto dealers have instructed their automotive advertising agencies to find vendors that can provide cutting edge applications to help them sell vehicles and service. AAOL promotes AdAgencyOnline.Net as an auto industry focused social networking site that benefits automotive advertising agencies, dealers, vendors and consumers alike by finding and featuring Internet based technologies and applications that integrate proven real world selling processes with the virtual showrooms being built on the World Wide Web. The success of AdAgencyOnline.Net and the growing use of social networking sites like Face book, Twitter and too many more to mention have prompted AAOL to integrate similar consumer facing forums into their client’s websites to provide additional information and earn the trust of site visitors. Social networking sites provide an open forum that allows consumers and auto dealers to share experiences as well as ideas when deciding who to do business with. The added value of increasing the search engine optimization, SEO, of the parent site makes the extended exposure an even more effective marketing tool for auto dealers.

AAOL has announced the development of an integrated social networking blog based site – “Auto Industry Insights” – that they will be linking to EveryCarListed.Com, (ECL). ECL is an automotive advertising website hosting the inventory of thousands of auto dealerships and millions of vehicles with one million unique monthly visitors projected by the end of the 1st quarter of 2009. ECL will be further leveraging their site traffic by developing reciprocal links with established auto industry blogging sites and auto industry experts with a loyal following of consumers and/or auto dealers. The links are a welcome SEO tool for ECL, however, the blogs and the related information that they will provide to site visitors, dealers and consumers is a more valued resource.

The online audience provided by the contributors to “Auto Industry Insights” will supplement existing and pending online strategic partnerships, conventional and Internet advertising investments and projected search engine marketing, (SEM), investments made by EveryCarListed.Com. As a result, the site traffic to ECL is expected to exceed two million visitors by the 4th quarter of 2009. The leveraged site traffic of ECL with that of the selected auto industry social networking sites will provide a combined audience and SEO far greater than what the individual sites could produce. Site visitors will also benefit from the opportunity for consumers, automotive advertising agencies, auto industry vendors and OEM representatives to share best practices and to listen, learn or teach about all aspects of the auto industry.

Auto dealers that post their inventory on ECL will also be contributing posted discussions along with consumers that open an online account with ECL. The open forum will allow consultants, auto dealers and customers to share insights not otherwise available in either the real or the virtual world and it is a key differentiator for this forum as well as ECL which will benefit everyone that is involved. The “transparency” provided by this exchange of shared information and real world experiences represents the future use of the Internet to conduct business and AdAgencyOnline.Net is an example of a successful site targeted to the auto industry that has proven its value to attract new business in an otherwise down market.

Philip Zelinger is the President of Ad Agency Online, L.L.C. and host of the automotive advertising networking site – AdAgencyOnline.Net. The automotive advertising resource / networking portal features a blog talk radio station – WAAOL, All Automotive Advertising News All The Time . Mr. Zelinger hosts several blog talk radio shows, such as “Lunch With Phil Discussing Automotive Advertising,” to review potential automotive advertising vendors to be featured on AdAgencyOnline.Net. More recently, he has used the online forum as an open business meeting to invite auto industry insiders with an established online audience to join him on the new auto industry social networking site he is developing for EveryCarListed.Com. Mr. Zelinger stated that the response from his online friends and fellow auto industry consultants has been extremely gratifying. The first meeting of the “Advisory Counsel” for the shared portal – “Auto Industry Insights” – will be held at the NADA Convention in New Orleans between January 24th and January 27th 2009. The qualified and experienced auto industry insiders and automotive advertising experts that have committed their time, wisdom and existing auto industry social networking sites to this shared opportunity insures that the site will be a valued platform and leveraged resource for all of the contributors.

Dale Boone and Darrell Campbell from EveryCarListed.Com will be reviewing applicants to select six of the “best of the best” to serve on the senior advisory panel and to contribute articles and reciprocal links to the portal. Mr. Zelinger confirmed that Ralph Paglia, the host of an auto industry networking site, www.automotivedigitalmarketing.com ,(ADM), has been offered and has accepted the first seat on the panel. Ralph is the National Director of Digital Marketing for ADP and he also hosts a blog talk radio show on AdAgencyOnline.Net called, “Lunch With Ralph Discussing Automotive Advertising.” It is expected that some of the other panel members will be selected from guests that were previously interviewed on another of the blog talk radio shows on WAAOL, “Automotive Advertising Experts.”

The auto industry is following the direction of the automotive advertising agencies linked by Ad Agency Online, L.L.C. to develop their own social networking sites. Many of the auto dealer and vendor clients of AAOL will be monitoring the success of ECL’s “Auto Industry Insights” to help design their own linked forums. Ad Agency Online, L.L.C. is responsible to monitor and manage the automotive advertising applications that they promote to maximize the R.O.I. for their clients and they are confident in the anticipated success of the one that they are developing for ECL. Philip Zelinger stated that “Blog talk radio, online social networking sites and blogging should be an integral part of any comprehensive online marketing plan and the new site to be hosted by ECL promises to be the best example of leveraged online resources to date.”
