In 2010, the automotive dealership Lebanon Ford made a decision to embrace social media — going beyond just setting up a Facebook and Twitter account. It drove them to review and revamp almost all internal processes and marketing initiatives in order to create an approachable social image and dynamic brand story. What were some of the challenges and obstacles they’ve faced over this past year? They’ve faced things such as: buy-in from management and sales staff, developing marketing synergy, closing the offline to online experience gap, defining the real importance of social media, acquiring talent, and defining overall strategy.
