Automotive Advertising Agencies Learn The Art Of The Deal In Vendor Negotiations On AdAgencyOnline.Net Blog Talk Radio

Automotive advertising agencies gather online at AdAgencyOnline.Net to listen and learn from automotive advertising insiders who host a blog talk radio station — WAAOL, All Automotive Advertising News All The Time.  These automotive advertising experts will be discussing The Art Of The Deal In Vendor Negotiations on Monday, March 07th. 2011 at 12:00 Noon EST.  The show will focus on best practices for automotive advertising vendors who are actively negotiating software consolidations in the technology sector; but not for the same reason as the consolidation in the retail auto industry. 

Newly forming technology platforms link complementary applications into more comprehensive sales and service process.  Small independent vendors are partnering with other best in class vendors to leverage their proprietary software and processes allowing them to provide superior products and services than they could individually. Applications that integrate sales and service processes online with the auto dealership to enhance the customer experience are shaping the future of the automotive advertising industry and the retail auto industry that they serve.

Philip Zelinger, the President of Ad Agency Online, L.L.C. and the moderator of the Lunch With Phil Discussing Automotive Advertising blog talk radio show, shared his own best practices with his affiliated automotive advertising agencies.  “I have a self delegated role in my company to find and review cutting edge automotive advertising applications provided by best in class vendors.  I prioritize people over product or price when evaluating a solution because support services after the sale and the ability to act vs. react to the changes that will shape our shared futures depend on them.”

“My policy to only do business with friends has served as the foundation for my advice to vendor clients who are seeking partners and/or investors to expand their business.  Men make deals, attorneys break them and human nature controls them all.  Relationships change and any partnership must be built on a common understanding of our individual needs.  Communicating and recording those needs in the formative stages of the partnership in an objective manner is the art of the deal in vendor negotiations.  If I negotiate to protect your needs and you focus on defending mine our partnership will last.  If our agendas are purely self serving any meeting of the minds will have to reflect that and that is no way to start a relationship!”

Specific subjects that will be discussed during the show will include:

  • Evaluating market demand to build an accurate pro-forma
  • Establishing brand identity and barriers to entry
  • How to pick a partner
  • Preparing a Memorandum Of Understanding, (MOU), and a Letter Of Intent, (LOI)
  • Monetizing applications
  • Building a sales channel
