 Changing the way progressive dealers manage search, social & mobile.

Dealers need help with search more than ever. 

SEO Flow Chart

Automotive dealerships often don’t get the opportunity to compete organically against their competition as they should.

Many websites still have off the shelf page copy and default on-page elements include duplicate page titles and descriptions. Off-page optimization? No, not really. Integrated social optimization efforts? Not effectively. Proactive efforts to prepare for the semantic web? Not a chance.

SEO isn’t a single function anymore.

I provide an exclusive, modern solution based on topic modeling, intent matching and machine learning. Today’s marketing must work in the current search ecosystem and the quality standards set forth by Google.

This approach moves beyond keywords. Websites should be the dealer’s best lead source due to relevant content and page context. 

My goals: Improve your search marketing efforts, increase the quality of your dealership’s digital culture and improve the relationship with your website vendor.

That’s how I can help.

What Others Are Saying


Jeff Cryder Jr.

Jeff Cryder Jr. - Marketing Professional

Eric, in my opinion should be considered in the top 99% of the automotive retail space. A true strategist who backs up his knowledge and expertise with actual real world application (a trait rare in our industry).  As a young marketing professional I truly look up to Eric’s professionalism and marketing prowess. His industry accomplishments at Auction Direct, his iPhone App, and his contributions at DrivingSales are testaments to his intelligence, passion and ability to execute. He’s without a doubt the type of guy you’d strap your boots on, grab a rifle, and follow into battle.

Dennis Galbraith

Dennis Galbraith - Chief Marketing Officer at Dealer e Process

Eric understands automotive retail from a holistic perspective. He sees how the pieces fit together and generously helps others do the same. He is prolific with his online posts, but every one is a gem worth reading. I was one of the many trying to lure Eric onto the DrivingSales team. We are fortunate to have him, and our huge audience of dealers will benefit from his contributions online as well as his work directing product strategy. Follow Eric on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn, or any way you can. He is someone you’ll want to hear from regularly and network with whenever possible.

Paul Potratz

Paul Potratz – CEO Potratz Automotive Ad Agency

 I can say a lot of wonderful things about Eric and his abilities! The bottom line is Eric knows Social Media, Digital Marketing, Behavioral Marketing or anything having to do with online marketing and he is very creative in how to maximize these tools. Often times when something seems new to me in online marketing and I need some input of how to make it a more effective component in a dealers marketing he has the answers and has utilized the platform for quite some time. How he finds the time to say current with all the new marketing tools amazes me but that is what makes Eric my “Go to Guy”

George Nenni

George Nenni - Vice President of Operations at Dominion Enterprises

This is an easy recommendation to write, as Eric is a leading authority in the automotive digital marketing space on new technology, social media, and mobile apps. I can always count on Eric to make sure I’m on top of new tech far earlier than most. He is also a humble and professional individual to work with, always willing to make time or help someone with a problem. I highly recommend him for any related project, application, or position.
