Welcome to my blog….

Here you will find all that is me, good, bad or indifferent…

I do not always make the best decisions

Most of the time I have learned I have made some very poor choices, however, I am committed to learning from them and growing as a Husband, Father, Friend and Professional

In my blog you will find times that I am excited, happy, saddened, sarcastic and out right combative…

This is true about me as a person as well

I am not limited to one emotion, I am not limited by one attitude

What some find inspiring others find self-destructive, what some find as comedic others see as offensive

I am not perfect, nor will I ever try to become so…

I am who I am, no more no less

I have been blessed beyond measure and failed to use my gifts to the Glory of HIM when I should have

I am a human being and the epitome of a paradox…

If you are offended by the words I write in my blog I am sorry you have been and if you feel inspired by them hang tight I will probably offend you shortly..

My words and ramblings are not meant to fix the world, that is beyond my scope…

The times my faith is shared is to help strengthen myself and others.

Separation of career, personal and worship life is not something I subscribe to, I am not a separate person all of these is me.

Here you will find all that is me, good, bad or indifferent…

Why you need to focus on your “Why Buy”

Featured Image -- 4721

Originally posted on The re:member group Blog:

As most of you may be aware, the automotive buying behavior is changing and it is critical to make sure you stand out from your competition. According to Google’s research study, the average consumer has 24 research touch points prior to buying a vehicle, while only visiting 1.4 dealerships before making a purchase decision. Nate Sieveking discusses these changes and why it is critical to separate your dealership from the pack. True automotive customer loyalty begins by offering customers real value that the competition cannot match. re:member group helps dealers truly differentiate themselves from the competition, give customers relevant and compelling reasons to choose your dealership and close more deals at a higher gross.

Lions

Today I saw two posts about lions:

The first was an “inspirational” image of a lion with the words…

lions

I am a lion and I refuse to talk, to walk, to sleep with the sheep. I will not hear those who weep and complain, for their disease is contagious. Let them join the sheep. The slaughterhouse of failure is not my destiny.

The second was the story of Christian the lion and how as a cub he was raised by two men who played with him until he was too large for them to care for. He was loved by them so much that they brought him home to Africa to live. Time passed and they heard that Christian the lion was now the head of a pride. In the video story you could see this now large male run towards the men that raised him and give them hugs and loving nudges….

I hope to be more like the lion in the second post…

Sometimes you sit and read joke books to make yourself smile... My blog... #nofilter A couple of my ladies... Micah Birkholz:LotLinx digital and social media, the "why" of doing business with me... Thanks @coachrenee @skeetle and Katie! For more about why me click here: http://www.linkedin.com/in/micahbirkholz/  or here: http://micahbirkholz.com or just call me I promise to probably answer:) Lotlinx Testimonials:
I have been asked for some dealer testimonies about #lotlinx how's this? Why Lotlinx?
It’s a simple idea. When you get your inventory closer to shoppers, you sell more cars—faster.

More than 250 dealer-groups who use LotLinx Deeplink™ Technology are getting their inventory in front of more
online shoppers, more often.

As of last month those dealers had shifted 24% of their digital spend to LotLinx. And the results are in:

They had 147% more shoppers visit their websites.

95% of those shoppers were new visitors.

And their online engagement doubled—with twice as many VDP views and shoppers who spent twice the time on the
dealers’ websites.
Which led to one sale for every 27 website visitors.

And with all those extra buyers, their new inventory turn increased 42%. Used sales sped up by 64%. LotLinx gets your inventory closer to shoppers— and getting closer to shoppers sells more vehicles.

It’s that simple.
We have been in market now for 18 months- first with a handful of sophisticated, forward-looking dealer groups, and
now with a broad set of dealers representing nearly every brand, in nearly every major market in the country. The
results have been both consistent and impressive:
In January as a group, our dealers had shifted 11% of their SEM spend to LotLinx- an average of $1,933 per month:
 They reduced their cost per shopper from an average of $23.70 with Adwords, to $3.99 with LotLinx
 They reduced their cost per VDP view from an average of $18.55 with Adwords to $3.17 with LotLinx
 The increased their Time on Site from an average of 1:96 with Adwords to 4:16 with LotLinx
 LotLinx delivered 94% new visitors- nearly 20 percent better than Adwords. Sunset over the strip... My favorite ornament... The nail. I love Christmas ornaments... The light of the world...
