I’m not sure where to begin and I guess that’s what took so long to post this. What an honor.
Last Monday YOU/WE/ALL of us here on DealerRefresh were rewarded the readers choice AWA Lighthouse Award for best online content and community given out by PCG Digital Marketing. The award was presented during the 3rd annual Automotive Website Awards breakfast ceremony in Las Vegas. A big thanks to Joe Pistell for being there to accept the award on behalf of the community.
“Members of the automotive dealer community DealerRefresh, have made this website a top destination for peer advice, vendor feedback, and mentoring.”
When Brian said he was going to do this, I thought – that’s cool, it will be great to recognize all the hard effort we ALL place into running each of the industry online communities and publications no matter who would win. Many are done on a shoe string budget and for no real reason than to better our industry.
I’ll be honest, I wasn’t sure if DealerRefresh would win. I’m not naturally a very competitive person (I compete with myself more than anything), so other than the posting of the survey here on the blog and in the forum, we didn’t push it. We didn’t solicit for votes via email nor ask people to vote for DealerRefresh. We merely asked everyone to vote, just vote.
So for DealerRefresh to win was straight up AWESOME and truly speaks volume for our community and all the hard work.
As I said up there, YOU/WE/ALL of us here on DealerRefresh were rewarded Monday. Without YOU, DealerRefresh would not be what it has turned out to be.
If you have YET signed up to be part of the DealerRefresh forums – what are you waiting on? It’s time to do it!
Congratulations to YOU! And thanks for voting.
