Views on Social Networks for the Automotive Industry

Social networking for the automotive industry seems a bit hard to fathom. With all of the sites out there doing it, but only concentrating on a couple of different sectors of the industry. The way I see it for this to work, it needs to be more all-inclusive.

The automotive a whole is having hard times right now, and believe me they are all looking for ways to make their businesses perform better. They go to the web because it’s one of the best places to push their businesses without having to spend more money then they can afford.

With all of the buzz on the net about social networking, you can bet they are looking in to it, just as I did. A lot of them are probably finding the exact same thing as I did, that there are no social networks that are directly related to their business.

Why on earth would you join a social network that doesn’t relate to your business? I know I wouldn’t do it, if they are looking to promote their business by the use of a social network, it just makes sense to look for like minded people in the social networks.

It stands to reason that a person who is looking to promote their auto restoration shop, doesn’t want to join an automotive social network that is aimed at new car dealers. What point is there to spend the time that it takes to network with people there.

Social networking takes a lot of time to do right. You need to figure out the best way to use it for your business. It takes hours of studying to get it right, you need to know demographics, and why the customers would respond to your as opposed to another person.

If you on the network that is aimed at you specific sector you increase you chances of it working for you greatly. Although a lot of the automotive industry still has no place to go for this, people are out there wondering why automotive social networking seems to be failing as a whole.

The bottom line is there is no such a thing as the idea of as a whole, it is just a few sectors of the industry that are covered in the social networking universe. I wonder how these people have come to a conclusion that it’s failing as a whole, when that doesn’t exist yet.

When you take a slice of pie, you can’t know the entire story of that pie. No I don’t think that automotive social networking as a whole has failed, I think that it need to have deeper exploration. The automotive industry is a tough way to make a living.

A lot of the people in the industry feel as if they got left out in the cold, if you give them a nice warm fuzzy place to call home, you can bet they will swoon right on it. They will attack like a pack …

Get a Car Loan for Buying a New Car

Get a Car Loan for Buying a New Car

There are few transactions in your life (aside perhaps from the purchase of a home) which will cost as much as the purchase of a vehicle. Cars, trucks, bikes and other modes of motorized transport are generally the second most expensive purchase in the life of the average consumer. It is because of this fact that few people are ever in the position to pay cash for their vehicles.

Almost everyone uses some form of credit for their vehicle purchase. Like it or not, this is nothing more than a fact of modern life. Most people use car loans in order to afford the car that they want. This can be a perfectly sensible and relatively safe way to purchase a vehicle. Indeed there are several reasons why it would be beneficial to purchase a car using a car loan rather than not use a car loan.

Most people have some form of savings. Some have maybe $1000 dollars or so, whilst other people’s savings run into the tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands of dollars. The fact is that these savings, whilst they may be more than enough to afford you a new car outright, are not saved for the purpose of a new car. Most people save for their retirement or in case of an emergency. Tempting as it may be to pay cash for a new car (assuming that you have the money ready) it does not make all that much sense. Whilst it is true that unless your loan is interest free, you will end up paying more over the course of the car loan, the important thing is that your emergency savings will still be in tact, and this is worth paying a little extra for.

Car loans give you the luxury of keeping your “rainy day” money for a rainy day. So in effect, a car loan is buying you more than just a new car. A car loan is buying you peace of mind and reassurance that should the worst happen and you need access to your savings, that they will not be all tied up in a vehicle but will be readily available for you to access.

You can ask any business man and they will tell you that cars make awful investments. As soon as you drive a new car out of the dealership you are reducing its value quite dramatically. So why on earth would you invest your savings in a new car? It would make no financial sense for you to do this. The only sensible way to purchase a new vehicle is not to plow all your savings into something that will show no return, but rather to take out a car load. At the very least, this will allow for you to invest in something that will have a better chance to make a profit and drive a new car!…

Buying a Used Car - The Easiest Way How

3) Inspect the Toronto used car. If you have your prospect car and have narrowed your choices down, you can schedule a physical visit to the shop to actually see the car for yourself. If you must, bring a trusted mechanic along if you know very little about cars. He or she will be able to tell you the actual condition of the car and whether it is worth purchasing. Be sure to inspect the car thoroughly yourself.…

Advantages of Combining Customer Care and Engineering

On the face of it, automotive engineering and customer care have little to do with each other. Of course, everything that engineers do is aimed at satisfying the customer and offering higher and higher value, but the two disciplines of engineering and customer care seem to be on two different ends of the spectrum. One would imagine that the engineers do their job and then it is the role of customer service department to interact with customers and deal with their issues. However, if you are willing to look a little beyond the surface, you will find that combining engineering and customer care can be highly advantageous to both the automotive industry as well as the end customer.

Let us begin by looking at what exactly an automotive engineer does. What does his job role entail?

To begin with, it is the role of automotive engineers to design as well as develop various automotive systems like engines, electronics, brakes, fuel systems, suspension, etc.

 Secondly, they are also responsible for designing, developing, operating, managing and maintaining automotive assembly lines.

 Their job also involves dealing with suppliers for different parts made to their exact precision, managing their costs as well as delivery.

 They also have to design, develop and implement a number of tests to ensure that individually and collectively, the parts function optimally and safely. Ensuring safety of the final product is part of their job role.

 Finally, it is the role of an automotive engineer to gather data from service centers, repair shops and end customers to identify the problems they have faced in operating the vehicle and them implement adjustments in design as well as the manufacturing process to remove the faults and improve the vehicle.

Now, that the job description of an automotive engineer is before us, it becomes easier to understand how customer care training can be helpful to them. The final point that concerns interacting with customers can be the one factor that gives one company an edge over the others in the industry. If the company has its ears to the ground and is aware of the needs as well as the problems of their customers, the products designed by them are sure to offer greater value to those who use them.

Now, as you can see, getting customer feedback is already a part of the job role of the automotive engineer. But often, he gets information that is second hand. For instance, a customer may make a complaint to a customer care executive, who will pass it along to the engineer. But, it is important to remember that the customer care executive is not technically trained. Neither can he fully understand the exact problem of the vehicle, neither can he ask appropriate question to clarify a point. When the information reaches the engineer, it hardly explains the exact nature of the problem. As you can see, if the engineer was himself dealing with the customer, he would be in a much better …
