• I train dealership Internet Departments in Business Development, Retention and Internet Sales Management. I specialize in increasing BDC customer conversions through a comprehensive campaign that includes intensive phone training, video email outreach, CRM texting, and social media branding.


• For dealerships considering equity-mining software, but are hesitant of the investment, I implement a robust BDC-managed equity campaign. Without incurring additional cost, I show dealerships on how to convert their most loyal customers using the tools they already have; their CRM, DMS and service customer database.

  • Assist automotive dealers in maximizing their marketing reach using targeted English and Spanish video ads and social media campaigns.

  • Perform Internet Lead provider return-on-investment analysis for automotive dealers.

I coach content managers and Internet coordinators with a strong focus on no-post-production video Internet marketing. My past experiences include training and implementing interactive Internet Department strategies for Toyota, Volkswagen and CDJR dealerships.

Showcase your sales staff and multiply your marketing reach.
