DealerRefresh.com
March 2004

DealerRefresh is for the car dealer Internet sales professional thriving for more information while looking to elevate their game. It’s also for industry professionals looking to keep up with some of the latest dealer industry news and trends.

Since the very first published article on March 15th of 2004, we’ve been writing and discussing (with even the occasional debate) best practices for leveraging Internet marketing and new age sales processes within the car dealership.

Prior, there was no other site that brought other automotive Internet sales professionals together in one virtual spot. For that reason, DealerRefresh was born; the very first website of its kind, dedicated to the internet sales and marketing professionals grinding away everyday at the dealership.

Over the years, DealerRefresh has grown and matured into what it is today and is now one of the most recognized websites within our industry.

From internet marketing best practices for your dealer, what works with SEO and car dealer search engine marketing, how online video fits into your dealer’s landscape to online reputation management for your dealership; if the topic has not been recently written about, check the archives or submit your suggestion of topic to discuss using Ask/Answer. And just released…the ALL NEW DealerRefresh Dealer Technology Forum.

DealerRefresh also hosts an array of guest postings. We love to hear from industry experts and other Interent Sales Managers that are passionate about their jobs and how they’re elevating their dealer to another level.
