Breaking News: NADA Names New President!

By Lindsey Auguste on Jan 9, 2013

 

 

A special meeting was held last night in Dallas, where the National Automobile Dealers Association unanimously voted in Peter Welch as the New NADA President.  Welch will officially take office February 1st, just prior to the NADA Convention held February 8-11 in Orlando, FL.

Welch was appointed last night after a long search to fill the top leadership position.  A highly recommended car guy, Welch has been in leadership roles within the California New Car Dealers Association since 2003 and has been managing its government affairs since 1990.  Welch not only has years of leadership experience, but his tenure in California facing some of the most stringent regulatory practices, will surely have prepared him to now take on any challenges that NADA has ahead.

Congratulations to Peter Welch and the entire NADA organization.

  • Jim Radogna: Avoiding the Eye of Mordor in Social Media

    Just like in the blockbuster series “The Lord of the Rings”, the Eye of Mordor is always open. Until now, its focus has been on larger battles and more interesting things. Then a Hobbit found a golden ring and slipped it on his finger. And the Eye started paying attention to this little being that had avoided the Eye’s gaze… until now. The intersection of advertising, marketing, and compliance is not easy to navigate. It seems as if each week, rulings are being rendered from one of the myriad of regulatory bodies making it more difficult for dealers to know what they should – and should not – be doing in regards to social media in order to stay compliant. In an effort to bring clarity to an increasingly confusing and misunderstood topic, I sat down with Jim Radogna, the president of Dealer Compliance Consultants, to get some answers.  Arnold Tijerina: I believe dealers aren’t vigilant enough ensuring that social media performed on behalf of the dealership meets the sam...Read post

  • Google's New Store Visits Metric - PPC Driving Showroom Traffic?

    Google has very recently launched a new feature inside the Adwords reporting element called “Store Visits” and it’s something auto dealers should pay attention to. It isn’t open to 100% of Adwords advertisers yet - so now is the time to gain understanding and be ready. Here’s what the new store visits metric is all about, and what it means for your business. (this is a 12-pack post my friends, crack a cold one and enjoy!)   What Is The Adwords Store Visits Metric?   Without getting overly complicated, it’s a way that Google can utilize data from clicks on your paid search ads in conjunction with location and device data from the user to offer some pretty sharp metrics on when and if those clicks drive people through the doors of your showroom or onto your lot.   Let me illustrate:   A young man named Brian, a recent college grad, has landed his first job at a startup in Valparaiso, Indiana. He settles in for a few months and eventually decides it’s time to t...Read post
