Congratulations to Mike Baker, Winner of the Vendor Ratings Contest and a Brand New MacBook Air!

 

We’ve had so much fun with this Vendor Ratings Contest.  Not just because we get to hand out cool prizes, but because it brought us closer to our true goal, which is to increase the Vendor Rating database – a collection of ratings and reviews that helps dealers make informed decisions about their operational investments and equally pushes the industry’s vendors to better serve the dealers.  Thank you to everyone who not only participated in the contest, but also those who rated and reviewed their vendors all year long. 

Congratulations to Aaron Holland, Larry Whitson, and Jeff Collins for winning the weekly contest drawing and receiving a $100 Amazon gift card each!  And for the first time, we’d like to announce the winner of the MacBook Air:  Congratulations to Michael Baker from Antioch Auto Center! 

Mike has already received a brand new, straight from the store, 11-inch MacBook Air.  When we spoke with Mike on the phone while verifying his review (as we do with all of our reviews), Mike was thrilled.  And we were thrilled to learn that our Vendor Ratings system is getting at its intended purpose.  Mike revealed “I have totally used your Vendor Ratings to look up other vendors and products that we might want to use, so I agree with you on the importance of it."

The prizes and contests are one thing, but that we are able to provide a platform for dealers to access verified, honest feedback about industry professional services and products to inform profit-making decisions – that’s what we’re here for.  And we can’t do it without you.  Thank you to all the dealers for sharing in the vendor ratings system and contributing your valuable experience and expertise.  And remember, you can rate your vendors all year long – once per quarter for each vendor.  Each review makes the database more robust and better informs dealer decisions.

Again, congratulations to Mike Baker as the grand prize winner of a brand new MacBook Air! 

Happy Rating!

Tommy Bay
Congrats, Mike! We were very excited to see this MacBook go to someone who had rated several of his vendors AND had used Vendor Ratings to investigate new products for his dealership! Thanks for being a part of the community, Mike! We hope to see you sharing on DrivingSales even more with that new machine. ;)
Bart Wilson
Congratulations Mike! Enjoy that Mac.
