smart car enthusiasts here and in general have been asking for more dealer and manufacturer support. We're trying to expand our social media presence, and everybody here may be able to help make a difference. Please help us out, and let's prove that we can make a difference!

Please add smart center West Covina on both your Instagram and Facebook accounts, this month.

I generally add my thoughts and new insight on SCOA's forums, but please also help our online/social media presence grow. Let's prove that there is still a lot of love and interest for smart here in the United States, above and beyond the typical "sales" and "sales leads" measurements that is so common in the industry.

https://www.instagram.com/explore/lo...r-west-covina/
https://www.facebook.com/smartcenterWestCovina/

The time will come where you will get insight into new smart related ideas, future product concepts, and you or I may be able to share that information here on SCOA as well.

Sad to hear that smart doesn't want to advertise their own product and is dumping it on the dealerships to prove they should continue with their product. But, it is what it is. I would hope they decide their choice to discontinue the ICE in the US would change, and they could do a little better job in the MPG and product appeal area ( a forfour would be a big help) I am still a loyal follower and owner.

I didn't mean to imply any of that. There is always room for smart centers to be more engaged with social media and mix things up to make our facebook and Instagram pages more appealing. We're having a little internal challenge to see who can be the most engaging and involved, and it's all meant to be fun.

Basically, what I'm trying to imply is... please add our Instagram and facebook.

MR smart LA says he wants our help, so he can compete for attention with his fellow Dealers. What arrogance, what BS !


I see this as just further evidence that the "Buyer" is being used or ignored at All levels of the smart brand.


How would it be if smart and it's dealers said, "We know you love your car and we want to make it easier for you to trade up to the new 453, or simply Add one to your current collection. Therefore we are offering both a factory and a dealer discount that will make the new price irresistible !"

Sad... a day late. A Dollar short. All the king horses, and the king men. Won’t bring the smart brand, successful here again.

No advertisement from the from the mother ship. On the new model. Lack of a variety of product. One niche vehicle. A ED now, only offer, at limited dealerships. Where’s the forfour, I would have bought, in a heart beat?

smart videoed the whole 2010 National event here in KC. The largest event in NA. Corporate was here. They did nothing with it, to promote brand, when smart was at least selling cars here.

Wow. Haters gonna hate. He's trying to help his dealership have a stronger presence on social media. It's called "marketing" apparently you guys don't know much about it. How much money do you think MB is going to throw at a brand that only sold 105 units last month?
Since the culling a few months ago, Mr smart LA's West Covina dealership is now my closest dealership. I'm happy to support him. I haven't needed to go to his dealership yet, but if I do, it would be nice to put a face with a name.
