I have an overwhelming passion for the men and women in the car business. I love this industry. Car dealers are some of the most generous and ethical people I have ever worked with and I want to see them succeed. My current role educates and trains them on how to best utilize social communication tools to manage their team and compliment their current sales process. By taking best practices that have served our industry well, combining them with new technology we can create a winning combination. I also preach a cautionary tale of fauxperts, self proclaimed gurus who are out for themselves.

Million Dollar Automotive Marketing Idea:
Micah Birkholz here and I resurrected the bow tie for this video! I have a multi million dollar marketing idea, you think anyone else has ever thought of it? The premise might be a little obscure, why would anyone make an ad that makes their own customers look bad… You’d think a business would want to keep their customers happy and make them look good… turns out that might not be the case….
Social Media Engagement-Micah Birkholz, James Ziegler
When I switched careers back to my original Automarketing Home at Cuneo Advertising Agency in Bloomington, MN I had a most excellent and heart warming congrats from my network on FaceBook( check it out here https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fb… )… Even my friend James Ziegler made a comment about social media engagement for the car dealer… Take a look.
Not sure if i need the disclosures anymore but here we go:) "The opinions in this blog, video or whatever media, are mine alone and not the opinions of who I work for"
