Keep the Questions Coming for the Two Part AMA (so far)

Ask Me Anything

We are close to having enough questions in to do a two-part "Ask Me Anything" now. Keep the questions coming!

Surely there's something that you've always wanted to know about automotive internet marketing. There are plenty of experts out there - I'm nobody special. I will do two things:

  1. Give an honest, unbiased answer that has nothing to do with my company. I represent KPA professionally, but for this AMA I'll be answering the questions from the perspective of representing Driving Sales and the automotive industry in general.
  2. Apply knowledge accumulated from nearly two decades in the automotive industry - 11 years at dealerships and 6 years on the vendor side. When I was 19, I was selling ads for a newspaper. I was in school and about to be a dad. One of my clients was a car dealership who told me about the real money I could make if I went to work for them. The rest is history.

It doesn't matter what you want to ask. Send your questions to eric@drivingsales.com and I'll answer some of the questions this week and the rest of them next week. If enough come in, we'll even do a trilogy.
