Dominion Dealer Solutions Launches Online Advertising Platform for Automotive Dealers

Norfolk, VA (PRWEB) January 25, 2015

Dominion Dealer Solutions, an industry leader in automotive market intelligence, customer relationship management, responsive websites and reputation management solutions, has launched an Online Advertising Platform for automotive dealers.

Dominions Online Advertising Platform searches for customers currently in buying cycles and converts them to dealership prospects. Dealers using the Platform receive fully-managed, campaign-based search marketing, pre-roll video display advertising and inventory-specific search marketing. By leveraging campaign searches across the dealers entire web presence, the Online Advertising Platform generates better conversion rates and greater efficiencies for dealers.

As dealers try to win market share from competitors within the same brand as well as competing brands, their employees need solutions supported by responsive websites, multi-channel marketing, and reputation and social media management. Dominions Online Advertising Platform offers all of these within a single managed solution.

The fully-managed search marketing campaigns enable dealers to craft specific offers around targeted search criteria in order to market to customer groups currently searching for similar products. The inclusion of social posting allows the dealer to leverage social media to communicate a dealerships primary brand or marketing messages to customers. The platform creates custom web pages for conversion — not mirrored web pages — regardless of which website vendor the dealer selects.

According to Eric Grabowski, general manager for Dominion Dealer Solutions digital and managed services, “Consumers have significantly changed the way they shop for cars. Dealers who want to get the right advertisements in front of in-market customers need to partner with a company that understands the dealers business goals and has the ability to leverage the right online advertising channels to achieve them. Thats Dominion Dealer Solutions.”

The Online Advertising Platform markets the dealers inventory on Googles search network so that customers can find the exact vehicles they are searching for in the dealerships inventory. With just one click, automotive shoppers are taken directly into the vehicle details page of the dealers website. This provides the transparency and user-friendly shopping experience that todays consumer expects.

In addition to effective managed search marketing and inventory tools, Dominions Online Advertising Platform provides dealers with a more effective, measurable way to find new shoppers through brand consideration in pre-roll video. Dominion helps a dealer craft targeted offers to engage consumers and then drive them back to the dealership.

John Reed, vice president of product strategy, added, This product initiative is the result of our customers feedback. We want to increase dealerships ability to manage their own lead generation in an increasingly complicated digital world. Rather than rely on third-party lead generation tools, dealers can use this platform to effectively manage targeted search, social and video platforms in a simple process.

Tinsley Ellis – Tough Love Album Release Party

Tinsley Ellis – Tough Love Album Release Party
Event on 2015-02-21 20:30:00
Doors: 7:30pm / Show: 8:30 pm
Cost: .50 advance, day of show

BUY TICKETSAbout the Event:

“Feral blues guitar…non-stop gigging has sharpened his six-string to a razor’s edge… his eloquence dazzles…he achieves pyrotechnics that rival Beck and Clapton.” — Rolling Stone

“Ellis unleashed a torrent of dazzling musicianship pitched somewhere between the exhilarating volatility of rock and roll and the melancholic passion of urban blues.” — Los Angeles Times

Southern blues-rocker Tinsley Ellis may speak no evil, but he sings and plays with the conviction of, as Billboard wrote, “…a man possessed.” Over the course of 11 albums and literally thousands of live performances, Ellis easily ranks as one of today’s most electrifying blues-rock guitarists and vocalists. He approaches his music with rock power and blues feeling, in the same tradition as his Deep South musical heroes Duane Allman and Freddie King and his old friends Derek Trucks and Warren Haynes. Atlanta Magazine declared Ellis “the most significant blues artist to emerge from Atlanta since Blind Willie McTell.”

Since first hitting the national scene with his Alligator Records debut Georgia Blue in 1988, Ellis has toured non-stop and continued to release one critically acclaimed album after another. Tinsley’s hometown paper, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, calls his music “a potent, amazing trip through electric blues-rock.” Rolling Stone says he plays “feral blues guitar…non-stop gigging has sharpened his six-string to a razor’s edge…his eloquence dazzles…he achieves pyrotechnics that rival early Jeff Beck and Eric Clapton.”

Tinsley Ellis wears his Southern roots proudly. Born in Atlanta in 1957, he grew up in southern Florida and first played guitar at age eight. He found the blues through the back door of British Invasion bands like The Yardbirds, The Animals, Cream, and The Rolling Stones. He especially loved the Kings — Freddie, B.B. and Albert — and spent hours immersing himself in their music. His love for the blues solidified when he was 14. At a B.B. King performance, Tinsley sat mesmerized in the front row. When B.B. broke a string on Lucille, he changed it without missing a beat, and handed the broken string to Ellis. After the show, B.B. came out and talked with fans, further impressing Tinsley with his warmth and down-to-earth attitude. By now Tinsley’s fate was sealed; he had to become a blues guitarist. And yes, he still has that string.

Already an accomplished teenaged musician, Ellis left Florida and returned to Atlanta in 1975. He soon joined the Alley Cats, a gritty blues band that included Preston Hubbard (of Fabulous Thunderbirds fame). In 1981, along with veteran blues singer and harpist Chicago Bob Nelson, Tinsley formed The Heartfixers, a group that would become Atlanta’s top-drawing blues band. Upon hearing Live At The Moonshadow (Landslide), the band’s second release, The Washington Post declared, “Tinsley Ellis is a legitimate guitar hero.” After cutting two more Heartfixers albums for Landslide, Cool On It (featuring Tinsley’s vocal debut) and Tore Up (with vocals by blues shouter Nappy Brown), Ellis was ready to head out on his own. Ellis sent a copy of the master tape for his solo debut to Bruce Iglauer at Alligator Records. “I had heard Cool On It,” recalls Iglauer, “and I was amazed. I hadn’t heard Tinsley before, but he played like the guys with huge international reputations. It wasn’t just his raw power; it was his taste and maturity that got to me. It had the power of rock but felt like the blues. I knew I wanted to hear more of this guy.”

Georgia Blue, Tinsley’s first Alligator release, hit an unprepared public by surprise in 1988. Critics and fans quickly agreed that a new and original guitar hero had emerged. “It’s hard to overstate the raw power of his music,” raved The Chicago Sun-Times. Before long, Alligator arranged to reissue Cool On It and Tore Up, thus exposing Tinsley’s blistering earlier music to a growing fan base.

Tinsley’s subsequent releases — 1989’s Fanning The Flames, 1992’s Trouble Time, 1994’s Storm Warning, and 1997’s Fire It Up — further expanded the guitarist’s hero status. By now his talents as a songwriter equaled his guitar prowess. Guitar World said, “Ellis stands alongside Stevie Ray Vaughan and Johnny Winter, and that ain’t just hype.” Guests like Peter Buck (R.E.M.), guitarist Derek Trucks and keyboardist Chuck Leavell (The Rolling Stones) joined him in the studio. Producers Eddy Offord (John Lennon, Yoko Ono, Yes) and even the legendary Tom Dowd (The Allman Brothers, Ray Charles) helped Ellis hone his studio sound. Features and reviews ran in Rolling Stone, The Chicago Tribune, The Washington Post, The Los Angeles Times, The Boston Globe, and in many other national and regional publications. His largest audience by far came when NBC Sports ran a feature on Atlanta’s best blues guitarist during their 1996 Summer Olympic coverage, viewed by millions of people all over the world.

A move to Capricorn Records in 2000 saw Ellis revisiting his Southern roots with Kingpin. Unfortunately, the label folded soon after the CD’s release. In 2002, he joined the Telarc label, producing two well-received albums of soul-drenched blues-rock, Hell Or High Water and The Hard Way. All the while, Ellis never stopped touring. “A musician never got famous staying home,” he’s quick to note.

Ellis’ 2005 return to Alligator, the searing guitar-fueled Live-Highwayman, was the live recording his fans had been demanding for years. Recorded at a packed club just outside Chicago, the CD took Ellis’ extended soloing and heartfelt vocals to staggering heights. The Chicago Tribune said, “incendiary live performances, inspired, original and funky.” His return to the studio in 2007 produced Moment Of Truth, an album The Chicago Tribune called “incendiary.”

Averaging over 150 live shows a year, Ellis has played in all 50 states, as well as Canada, Europe, Australia and South America. He has shared stages with almost every major blues star, including Stevie Ray Vaughan, Otis Rush, Willie Dixon, Son Seals, Koko Taylor, Albert Collins and many others. Whether he’s out with his own band or sharing stages with major artists like Buddy Guy, The Allman Brothers, Gov’t Mule or Widespread Panic, he always digs deep and plays, as Guitar Player says, “…as if his life depended on it.” With Speak No Evil and continued non-stop touring, Ellis will bring his monumental guitar work and intensely powerful vocals to rock and blues fans all over the world, letting his songs and his guitar do the talking.

In 2013 Ellis launched his own label, Heartfixer Music with the release of the all instrumental Get It! , and in 2014 Heartfixer Music released Midnight Blue. Plans are in the works for a 2015 release.

Charleston, S.C. (PRWEB) January 29, 2015

Blackbaud, Inc., a leading global provider of software and services for the nonprofit, charitable giving and education communities, today announced the availability of a new complimentary report that reveals web navigation benchmarks from analyzing nearly 3,000 U.S. private schools websites.


Download the complimentary report, Private School Digital Insight: Enhancing Web Navigation and the Rise of Responsive Design

Our goal is to provide schools with data that has never been available before, said Travis Warren, president of Blackbauds K12 Private Schools Group. Web navigation is always changing, and this report provides a snapshot of the current state of private school websites. We want schools to take this information and assess their own approaches to web navigation.

The report, which gives private schools a reference point as they consider their web navigation strategy, reveals the most common features found on the homepages of private school websites, including phone number, address, dropdowns, event listings and a news feed. It also provides readers with SEO best practices, including the most popular keywords being used, so schools can compare their current strategies with the rest of the industry.

Key data from the report includes:

15 percent of private schools have .com in their domain name, with 73 percent using .org
78 percent have websites that do not utilize responsive design
40 percent of private school websites do not include a call to action
The primary call to action is Request Information
68 percent of private school websites link to a Facebook page
