driving-sales-banner I am working with Paul Rushing and JD Rucker to put together the details for the first Automotive Marketing Boot Camp which will be held in Orlando on the day prior to the official start of the 2010 NADA Convention. The boot camp will be a full day of intensive skills training; Automotive SEO, Social Media and tactical Internet Marketing skills. One Day of Intense Training.  Are You Ready For Boot Camp? The Boot Camp sessions will be at least 2 hours in length to give participants time to develop real life Internet marketing skills using their own laptop computer. These skills will give them the confidence to go back to their dealerships with effective marketing strategies. Every participant will be required to bring their laptop since they will be working online during class with strategies for their dealership.

Advanced Preparation and Customized Materials

Automotive Marketing Boot Camp participants will receive advance customized documentation to prepare for the skills building sessions. In addition, the boot camp instructors will be preparing dealer specific materials that will be waiting for the students when they register. The advance preparation will ensure that the basics are setup before classes start. Every participant of the Boot Camp will be part of at least four specific skill building classes. The instructors for the Boot Camp will include social media experts JD Rucker and Internet Marketing specialists Brian Pasch and Paul Rushing. Additional Boot Camp instructors will be announced next week.  The instructors will NOT be offering high level discussions but hands on tactical training.   That's why a laptop will be required; during the sessions strategies will be set in play specific for each dealership represented. Since each participant will receive customized reports and analysis of their website and marketing strategy, they will effectively have the industry's top experts consulting for your specific dealership for a full day. As a bonus, attendees will have both Thursday night and Friday morning to ask specific tactical questions of our instructors. Straight talk and intense skills training. driving-sales-seo-sky Get ready for Boot Camp!  Paul suggested that we start at 5:30 am  with calastenics and a 3 mile run. (I doubt that will happen)

Limited To 50 People

The Automotive Marketing Boot Camp is designed to achieve small classroom sizes and effective hands on training. As a result, the registration will be limited to 50 students.
