Madison cardealership taking the lead in social business engagement

Its nice to see that even car dealerships are finding a strategic way to use social media. Nate Towne of C Blohme & Assoc. and also Social Media Club had a live experience inside the Zimbrick waiting room with WIFI - in fact he did a great blog post on it as well.

This was something that upon walking in I was told would be 30 min. 1 hour later, I received an email that said my car was done. I waited another 20 min before I had to speak to the manager and ask why no one had called me to get my car. Duh!
