DEALER INTERNET BATTLE PLAN 3 DAY FULL IMMERSION WORKSHOP JULY 6-8, 2010 – Automotive Digital Marketing Professional Community ADM.

Dealer Battle Plan Workshop Hosted by Jim Ziegler and Ralph Paglia in Atlantic City on July 6-8th

ATLANTA, June 2 /PRNewswire/ — Top automotive industry trainer Jim Ziegler and digital marketing expert Ralph Paglia present a dynamic workshop to help auto retailers meet online marketing challenges. Automobile retail sales are a fiercely competitive and erratic market. Ziegler and Paglia’s plan is to give dealers an Internet Sales and Marketing Strategy to outperform the competition by gaining unfair competitive advantage on the web. This powerful event will be held at Bally’s Atlantic City, just minutes from the Philadelphia and New York City areas.

Change is constant. Nothing is the way it was, and will never be that way again. After working with thousands of automobile dealers over the years, Jim Ziegler needed to be sure his clients kept up with the new realities of changing technologies and the emerging influence of social media. So he assembled an all-star faculty for this dynamic event. All four presenters are world-class online retail practitioners. Their expertise and hands-on experience has shown they know what works and what doesn’t work in the online sales arena.

Workshop Instructors Ralph Paglia, Joe Webb and Tim Jennings have all been top-rated speakers at premier industry events and have managed both large and small Internet Departments. When interviewed, Jim Ziegler smiled and said, “I’ve assembled a killer team for this event, combat tested veterans with more than four decades of in-the-trenches experience.”

When asked about his success in selling over 4,000 cars via the web in one year while working as Internet Director at Courtesy Chevrolet in Phoenix, Ralph Paglia smiled and responded, “Our team in Phoenix was able to do that because we went to war on the web with several unfair competitive advantages. As other dealers caught on, copied what we were doing, we continued to launch barrage after barrage of web initiatives that kept us ahead in the market by seizing and controlling car buyer mindshare…” Paglia went on to say that he will deliver several strategic and tactical “How To’s” that will not be for the weak or timid dealer because they are the web equivalent of “going nuclear” on a dealer’s regional competition. Paglia is quoted as saying, “Dealers with a weak stomach for hyper-competitive tactics such as driving traffic from their neighboring dealer’s lots and showrooms using mobile web apps may find some of my more aggressive tactics as being a little over the top… But, by learning my Web Ninja tactics they will recognize when other dealers are stealing business from them before it is too late!”

Now, Ziegler and Paglia are delivering the real deal, content-rich sessions, hands-on “real-world stuff”, not theory. These tactics and processes are battle-tested on the front lines in dealerships all across the country.

Jim continued, “Dealerships can’t afford to miss a single opportunity to do business.” Having a dominant and effective presence on Facebook, Twitter, and other portals is critical to dealership marketing strategy. Ziegler and Paglia are masters of Social medium relationship sales and marketing. Workshop participants will take back an in-depth understanding of how to leverage online relationships for sales and profits.
