ORANGE, Calif., Nov. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- TK Carsites announced the appointment of James "JD" Rucker to Chief Marketing Officer. In this new position JD will merge dealer client marketing with TK Carsites' own marketing efforts under a new "results-based" marketing initiative. His goal will be to focus on the marketing efforts of their dealers first and utilize their successes to power TK's marketing campaigns. As a veteran on the TK Carsites team, JD has been invaluable in advancing the search engine and social media aspects of the organization. By implementing critical functionality, his efforts have raised the search engine visibility for over a thousand sites and increased consumer traffic as a result. JD is recognized as the foremost authority on automotive SEO and is a world renowned social media expert. He is also a regular contributor to major auto industry trade publications and social networks. Richard Valenta, the CEO of TK Carsites said, "JD and his unique skill set have brought our organization to the forefront of the industry, and due in part to his efforts we have received numerous industry awards including the recent Automotive Search Marketing Architecture (ASMA) Super Charged Search Award presented at the recent Digital Dealer Conference in Nashville." JD Rucker shared, "TK Carsites is going in a new and fresh direction with our marketing. By focusing our marketing efforts on our dealers, the marketing of the company itself will follow their success. It's classic trickle-down marketing: if we push our clients' exposure and success as high as possible, the marketing as a result will naturally flow down to give our company greater exposure and a higher level of success." Prior to joining TK Carsites, James served as the Internet Manager for an automotive dealer group in Oklahoma City, OK where he was responsible for the creation and management of a high volume Internet marketing department. Working in this capacity, he acquired his knowledge of SEO before branching out and optimizing other dealers and websites. About TK Carsites, Inc. TK Carsites, Inc. is a marketing and technology services company providing solutions to automotive retailers. Currently they offer their 1300+ auto dealer clients websites, email and search engine marketing programs along with numerous interactive and rich media campaign strategies. www.tkcarsites.com (714) 937-1239 SOURCE TK Carsites, Inc.
