www.dealerrater.com/login.aspx During ADP Dealer Community Pilots, we worked with multiple Consumer Rating UGC sites… DealerRater.com has provided the filtered feeds, Google Reviews rankings, and supporting code needed to empower Dealership Communities.
DigitalRalph says: “ADP uses DealerRater Data integration embedded into dealer community to automatically pull in all positive reviews posted by consumers on DealerRater.com”
Included within ADP’s SM/RM Solution Delivery is the posting of positive news stories, letters, accolades and awards that each dealer receives and supplies to their ADP DA Analyst…
Let’s walk through an example of using the predetermined number of HTML code blocks and Syndication feeds to confiure an element of a dealer’s ADP managed community…
Here, we are selecting a Ford OEM supplied graphic as the header image to display above the Ford OEM supplied content which is updated daily… Automatically, without effort.
We will use the Community site platform tooks to configure the image HTML code to create a pop-up page when selected….
Replace HREF After the Community Site Platform generates the HTML code we will replace the string indicating the full size image with the URL of the Ford OEM asset we want to frame in….
Copy Targeted Content URL We copy the Ford OEM URL for the “Ford on TV and Film” Social Marketing Snippet….
Paste Targeted Content URL We then paste the URL in place of the full size image code from the platform image rendering app to generate a pop-up framed in version of the OEM asset….
Dealer Community Site looking GREAT… Content Updated Daily! During production, the various syndication codes can be standardized by OEM to streamline both Dealer Community launch and ongoing maintenance….
http://ford.digitalsnippets.com OEM Support by creating easily accessible syndication assets! SMPR is Ford’s Acronym for “Social Media Press Release”
Ford Pilots were based on ADP selected site platform that has application level integration with Flickr… Ford provides API access so that Consumers can access high resolution glamour photos from within Ford Lincoln Mercury dealer communities.
ADP Social Marketing Dealer Solutions will have a daily API updated supply of gorgeous high resolution, commercial quality (expensive) photography that consumers get access to via their membership in our Ford Lincoln Mercury dealer communities.
ADP Social Marketing Dealer Solutions will use API based embedded applications to provide member exclusive advance access to images of future models which have not yet been released to the public or press by Ford!
Consumer Members of Ford Lincoln Mercury Dealer Communities supplied by ADP will be able to “push” their Ford API based embedded slideshows and videos to their Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, Blogger, Wordpress, etc. member profiles and friend pages… Ford will use separate apps for what is exclusive and what can be shared outside the dealer’s community.
ADP Supplied Dealer Communities can control whether members can distribute content or not, by widget settings and membership status…
Does it work… does this solution influence car buyers? “In today’s social media dominated world, online consumer generated content, such as reviews and ratings, is prevailing as a key influence in shoppers’ decision to ultimately purchase a vehicle or use service. This trend can be recognized by the increase in popularity of Web sites built onbusiness models providing just this type of information. A positive consequence of such review sites is that dealers now work harder to avoid getting low scores and more effort is put into satisfying customers.“ AlinSturekJ. D. Power and Associates
It’s fairly easy to see that in the Social Networking space, the three dominant sites are a minimum Requirement for a dealer’s social marketing Strategy. ADP uses dealership business profile pages and accounts on the 3 biggest as syndication points to drive traffic into dealership communities and engagement to content applications.
Why Bother with a Dealer Community Based SM/RM Strategy? Web 2.0 and UGC is fundamentally altering how customers interact with the Internet, and how businesses reach them.
In 2007, Consumer Generated Content sites attracted 69 million users in the US.
In 2008, Consumer Generated Content generated $1 billion in advertising revenue.
In 2009, Consumer Generated Content sites areon track to attract 101 million users in the U.S. and earn $3 billion in advertising revenue.
Overcome the obstacles preventing dealers from utilizing this dynamic medium, and the revenue potential is great. However, we already know that dealers need a solution which is more effective than display advertising alone.
Edmunds.com - first Automotive Community & Review site Edmunds follows a product review model for automobiles. Meanwhile, a separate link takes readers to its “community areas,” where users share their automotive ownership and purchasing experiences. Edmunds has maintained this online community since 1996, and it is moderated. All content posted to the site is reviewed by Edmunds’ staff within 24 hours, and offending material is immediately removed. Is it time for dealers to create online communities for employees and customers?
ADP could use Edmunds.com as an alternative to DealerRater for Reputation Management consumer content generation… But, Edmunds will not cooperate with filtered data feeds! According to a recent CapGemini study, 29% of car buyers use consumer-to-consumer (C2C) sites such as blogs, Edmunds or Internet discussion groups when researching information during the vehicle shopping process, up from 21% in 2006.
USER-GENERATED CONTENT DRIVES HALF OF U.S. TOP 10 FASTEST GROWING WEB BRANDS, ACCORDING TO NIELSEN//NETRATINGS… Why Implement a Social Media Strategy? According to Ralph Paglia, a respected automotive digital marketing consultant: “Dealers benefit from the cost-effectiveness ADP provides by leveraging a steady stream of OEM, enthusiast publication, employee and customer updated content that is practically free.” Ralph Paglia continues, “Notably, most dealers using the ADP Social Media Solution stand out as a more traditional business seeking to innovate and keep up with information sources that their customers have adopted… This is an especially valuable perception of a dealer by more affluent tech-savvy car buyers.“ Paglia also likes to point out; “The ADP managed solution helps Dealers syndicate OEM and their own video offerings that drive increased traffic to their commercial sites as car buyers seek video content to complement other information gathered while shopping for new and used cars.”
Has the AutoDigitalMarketing.com Experiment in Social/Professional Networking been successful? Reply by Ted Frazier 5 hours ago Send Message “Every now and then I google myself for fun to see what comes up. I did this just the other day I noticed my ADM profile page was #1, and I haven't even tried to SEO my profile. Now that I see I can get google's attention here I think I'll start using it to build content on other key words and point to my other sites.”

How Does It Work?

Using the ADP community platform supplier, created Flash photo slide show taken at ADM Reception sponsored by ADP… selected “share” to push Flash object and content into Facebook…
Facebook application opens per Community platform trigger, automatically populates object tile and pulls over description, tags, title… I enter a comment and select “Post” to insert into my Facebook Profile Wall for 2,000 of my best Facebook friends to see and use.
Total time = 02:48 (not inlcuding photo upload time)
Back in Facebook, the Community platform hosted photo slide show stands tall and proud within my Wall.
American Honda was so intrigued by the Branded Community concept, they sponsored the creation of the Boston Honda Community located at http://HondaGallery.ning.com an ADP dealer, the VP of Marketing was more interested in finding a way to tap into Social Networks and Web 2.o than hearing about any other new ADP solutions…
ADP created Boston Honda Community at American Honda’s request to demonstrate the use of popular social network site capabilities to tie into a dealership community platform… Here you see the Facebook “Group” site titled “Boston Hnda Community”… Content from the ADP created Boston Honda Community platform outside of Facebook is fed into the Facebook Group, and linked back into the ADP built community. This content feed updates every 15 minutes with new activity within the community platform. 61 new members joined the Facebook Group extension of Boston Honda Community in the first week.
Looks like I have a lot of relatives in the Boston area…
