How well does dealership VDP engagement correlate to car sales? What do you measure your online marketing on? I'm sure lead form submissions are…

At about 5:30 am yesterday morning I was woken up by a twitter text from Jeff Kershner at DealerRefresh.  He told me about a contest he was running to help get dealers involved in using social media and asked if DrivingSales would participate. Naturally we are game to support anything that helps the dealers get involved in social media.  (Plus I was half asleep and would have said yes to just about anything.  Looking back, buying two flip cams is a commitment I can handle!).   So here it is, DrivingSales is donating a couple extra flip cams to the cause so your chances of winning just doubled! If you want one of the sickest ISM tools on the market, the Flip Cam MinoHD, here is what you have to do: 1.     Sign up on twitter and follow @dealerrefresh (jeff) and @drivingsales (me) 2.     At four random times during the digital dealer event we will Tweet our location. 3.     First person to come to us from the tweet gets the Flip Cam.

Personally I think this is a really cool idea and give props to Kershner for thinking it up.  Social Media is amazingly effective and efficient way to communicate, (especially when waking someone up at 5am) and while this contest represents industry insiders communicating with each other... it's how we should be comfortable communicating with our clients. Social media is more widely used than email and if you are not using Facebook, Twitter and the likes to stay in touch, then you are out of touch, simple as that!  For those of you wondering how to engage on social media from your dealership level, be sure to come hear me speak. Ill be covering that very topic in my Digital Dealer presentation. dr_tweet_contest FINE PRINT: NONE!  Get involved and enjoy! For those of you who have been on the fence about setting up a twitter account, commenting on blogs or otherwise participating, its now time to jump in!
