Title: Introducing the ADP Social Marketing and Reputation Management Solution Sub-title: This new ADP managed solution makes it a lot easier for dealers to leverage the overwhelming growth in consumer use of Social Networks and User Generated Content (UGC) sites. Session description: to explain what my session will be covering, and get people to want to attend. Information may be posted on the DrivingSales.com website: Ralph Paglia will showcase the latest ADP Digital Marketing solution prototype, which is a Social Marketing and Reputation Management package of services and technologies. This solution will not be released to the ADP Sales teams prior to NADA 2010. Social Media is changing the way people get their information about cars they are thinking about buying, and the dealerships they will choose. This transformational shift is moving their information sources further away from marketers and closer to other consumers who they relate to from within their communities. Social Networks, UGC sites and all that makes up what some people call Web 2.0 combine to create a tsunami wave of impact that will make any influence the Internet has had on the car business during the past few years look mild in comparison.
