How To Connect Your Dealership With The Community

Auction Direct USA Social Media Breakfast

Want to connect with a new group of professionals within your community, create greater awareness for your dealership(s) and drive them into your showroom?

Host an event for your local Chamber of Commerce.

Auction Direct USA hosted the first Victor Chamber of Commerce Social Media Breakfast. Chamber members love to network, they're always looking for new members and they're all looking for new ways to help grow their businesses.

I invited two other local business professionals to join me in doing short, 15-minute presentations sharing different tips, tricks & secrets any business can use to help promote themselves both online & offline. No selling - simply sharing our respective expertise to create credibility and share helpful information with the attendees.

Win-win for everyone involved:

  • Guests picked up some great information
  • Chamber Director gained new members
  • Couple dozen people visited our showroom & had the opportunity to meet our GM & his staff.

Plus, one of the speakers already brought in a relative in to buy a new vehicle.
