How Small is your Community

I can remember growing up in what I thought was a small Central Texas town called Harker Heights.  You know, the type of community where you would walk out of the house around 8 AM after breakfast with the family and then be home before it got dark just in time to have dinner with the same kin.  I knew everyone in a 3 mile radius (at least that is how far I would ride my bike daily in all different directions).  On Sundays I saw the same 150 people in Church.  During school, I played with the same kids on the playground.  A big event would be the “new kid” that entered school.  Every Saturday, I was at some sporting event, whether it was a game I played in or one that my sisters competed in.  During dinner time, as my family and I sat around the wooden table breaking bread; I would hear about vacations, deaths, births and typical events that others in the community were experiencing.  It became even more exciting when I visited my Aunt who was always more than happy to share all of the plights, trials and tribulations that our extended family and friends were experiencing.

This was a time that the nightly news came on at 5 PM and then again at 10 PM.  You had to make a phone call pressing buttons on a home phone.  The cord would restrict your movement and if you didn’t memorize the number you would have to look it up in a big book.  There were 12 channels on the TV in the family room.  If your parents didn’t pay for HBO which came out in 1972, you had to squint your eyes to watch in on the fuzzy channel 2 (in my case, I would see a movie I wasn’t supposed to watch and go to my friend’s house across the street to watch it.) Some households still had black and white TV’s like the one that sat on my dresser in my room.  ATARI was about 6 years old and Donkey Kong was the craze.  However, we only played it at dark because there was too much going on during the day.

Now my father was a principal and we moved to several different towns throughout the state of Texas.  We started out in Harker Heights (a smaller town outside of Killeen, Texas) then moved to an even smaller town in North Texas called Valley View where the elementary, middle school and high school were all in one building.  From there my family moved to Gainesville, then Denton, and finally settled in the historical town of Kilgore.  Each town was the same.  I made friends in school and church.  Once we moved, I started all over again and made more friends in another community.

Although technology hadn’t invented the cell phone, satellite radio or all of the other instantaneous satisfactions we have today; I was completely informed of what was going on every day.

Today I live in a suburb just outside of Dallas, Texas and not much has changed in my small community!
However, my community is NOT Rockwall, Texas where I live today that I am talking about here.  Sure, there are parts of Rockwall that are my community, but that is only where I lay my head at night.  I will explain further how I have come to this realization.

My community is very small.

Recently, I spent a month on a farm my wife and I just purchased in Northern Michigan.  I was very apprehensive about spending such a long time away from all of my electronic devices that allow me to work and communicate with the world in the same fashion I have become accustom to.  If truth be told, I think I was the most worried that I wouldn’t have access to a 24 hour news station that kept me up to date with what was happening in the world.  (The town we bought the farm has a population of less than 500 people, no cell towers within an hour and very poor internet connection.)  With a simple purchase of a Verizon JetPack; I found out how small my current community really is but how informative they can be.

Today I noticed ten birthdays, a couple of family members enjoying a beer in Ireland, one of my son’s coaches daughters getting married, my sons friend playing with a Lion in Florida, my wife’s friend sharing her determination in losing the “baby fat” from her recent delivery, several comments about how it is Monday, a friend told me they don’t like Fake People, one of my daughter’s teachers was collecting backpacks for children in Nairobi, and a college buddy of mine  whom I haven’t seen in person in years playing volleyball in his pool.

Yesterday, a former colleague of mine text me.  Now this may not seem like much but we hadn’t talked directly for over 10 years and we knew everything about each other like we had worked together daily.  We didn’t have to carry on a whole lot through text because we knew how our families were doing, what ventures we were up to and all of the experiences that have happened to each other over the last decade.

I can even tell you right now that my childhood best friend who I met in Kindergarten is spending the week in Pikes Peak, has an highly trained chocolate lab, a kid who celebrated his birthday a couple of months ago and is deeply in love with his beautiful wife.  Again, might not seem significant except the last time I talked with him in person was the 5th grade and that was only because I visited him when he moved off to Virginia from Harker Heights.

Yet, my community is very small.

You see Facebook, Google+, Twitter, YouTube, Pinterest, Flickr and so many other social media sites allow us to experience the day to day lives of people we have come into contact with.  We are able to see kids grow up and get married, enjoy in their successes and consul during tough times.  Social Media has allowed each of us to develop our own personal communities just like the one I grew up in as a child.  Although we have jobs, kids and other life obligations that keep us from talking in person or seeing some of our oldest friends; we are still able to keep them as a daily part of our lives.  My personal community is built of the best of old colleagues and friends from every place I have been employed or lived.  It continues to grow, but only at a pace I allow it to grow.

My community is small compared to many on Facebook as it only consist of 532 people which is just a little larger than the small township our farm resides on in Northern Michigan.  However, it is my community, and the great thing about my community is I can retreat back to it anytime the everyday stresses start to mount.

Why Is Utilizing Social Media in Customer Service Important?

Some people may find this hard to believe, but even today in the year 2014; I’ve routinely heard customer service representatives refer to social media as a “fad”.  A surprising number of business professionals put next to zero value in managing online social media accounts because they fail to see its importance.

I would like to share with you something I learned Sunday evening: There’s a branch of Avis/Budget car rentals in Portland Oregon that provides awful customer service.  Wait actually I can be even more specific.  The branch is the one on Washington Street, and the awful customer service is taking rental car reservations despite having zero cars on the lot.  Not specific enough?  The woman at the desk actually yells at the customers, “It’s not our fault we ran out of cars!”  Oh, and her name is Ursula.

You probably think that in order for me to know all of these details I must be that customer who was yelled at.  Nope.  Well, then the customer must be a close friend or a family member.  Nope.   Perhaps, I’m a close friend of Ursula.  Nope.  Well, maybe I’m actually Ursula and this is some sort of confession.  Nope.   Actually, I don’t know the customer or anyone involved personally, nor have I have ever even been to Portland…or Oregon…or a state that borders Oregon.  Also, I’ve never dealt with any branch of Avis or Budget – I’ve actually never rented a car and I didn’t learn this information while searching for anything remotely related to renting a car.  I read about the customer’s horrible experience looking at my Twitter feed.
That’s a screenshot of just one of an entire slew of Tweets from comic book writer of Batgirl, Gail Simone.  She detailed her entire experience Sunday evening on Twitter for her 52,000 followers to see.  And as you can see above this tweet received 14 re-tweets and 52 favorites.  Each snippet of her experience has similar or greater than share numbers.  That means that the original 52,000 followers that the tweets were shared with are now extending further beyond her network to followers of followers and so on.  As a comic book writer, Gail Simone doesn’t have millions of followers like big-name celebrities, but the effects are evident.  It’s probably a good thing a big-name celebrity never complains about a business online.
Oops, maybe they do.  Now, these are extreme examples, if you’re running a local business odds are Will Smith isn’t going to come by and then follow up his visit by slamming you on social media.  However, the average person has over 250 people in their personal networks.  And if one or two per week are complaining about you online, it doesn’t take very many weeks to cripple your business.  And as you can see, complaints aren’t just going to review sites such as Yelp or Google.  Each day the number of users on sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Tumbler, etc. are growing exponentially.  And if you handle your business and online reputation the correct way, customers on these sites will be telling their hundreds of friends how great you are!
Above is an example from Gail Simone the same evening after her ordeal was resolved by another branch and you can see people are perfectly happy to favorite and share the good opinions of your business as much as they do with the bad.  This is why there’s no need to view Social Media as a hassle, because the reality is proper management can turn Social Media into the best thing that’s ever happened to your business.

Five Steps to Controlling your Online Reputation

When I was a kid, my southern Baptist Preacher father used to tell me I could never outrun my reputation.  I wasn’t the fastest kid around, but Jesse Owen, Carl Lewis, and Usain Bolt can’t outrun their reputation either.  Now with Social Media and hundreds of Online Review Sites- this fact is more real than ever; especially for businesses.
Today, ninety percent (90%) of all buying decisions are made before customers ever contact the business or organization they are interested in.  That means Automotive Dealerships, Churches, Attorneys, Real Estate Agents and any other business you can think of is not immune from anyone with a PC, tablet, or smartphone from sharing their experience perceived or otherwise about your organization.

So how do you make sure your Online Reputation reflects the real story that you want your potential customers to see?  The following steps to having a great Online Reputation is easier than you might think.


  1. Provide a great product or service.  Yes, we all know that sometimes you will not be able to satisfy the most arduous consumer.  Later in this article we will discuss this point.  However, most consumers when making a purchase expect their product or service to perform as advertised.  If this happens 100% of the time then usually your reputation will be strong.
  2. Thank your customer.  By letting your customer know that you know they have choices and you appreciate their business you have taken one of the easiest steps available.  It is a fact.  You are not the only game in town.  Consumers have more choices than ever, and they know this.  Let your customer know that you are happy to have earned their business every chance you get.
  3. Give your Customers a Chance to Talk.  Now, most people do not go home and take the time to write a great review.  (Some customers do, but most don’t).  Most Online Reviews are written by individuals who feel they did not get the treatment or value from the business they patronized.  Usually businesses never know that this customer was unhappy until the review has been posted for the world to see.  This will happen to the best of companies or organizations.  So, if you have taken care of Point Number 1 and Point Number 2 then you will not have to worry about many negative reviews posting on your personal review sites.  However, you must ask your happy customers to share their wonderful experience online.  In general, customers would love to share their great experience if it is easy and convenient as long as the first two points happen.  If you are receiving ten positive reviews for every one negative post then your Online Reputation will be solid.
  4. Respond to all.  Businesses and organizations should respond to every review.  All too often, most reviews are never acknowledge online in a public forum.  Take the time to thank the customer for taking the time to write the review.  Second, address the information (both positive and negative) in each review.  That means you must read the review.  It shows you care.  Do NOT post a generic response because you are telling the world that you really do not care about the time your customer took to share their experience.  Do not just respond to negative reviews or to only the positive reviews.  This also sends a poor message to the group of consumers you are not responding to.
  5. Social Media is also Online Reputation.  Understand that your Online Reputation is not only expressed on review sites such as Google, Yelp, CitySearch and others.  Your reputation is anything and everything that is posted online.  That means Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, YouTube, WordPress and other Social Media Sites also hold the keys to your Online Reputation.  Businesses must have a plan to understand and work their social media network.  A recent blog; ‘Is your business Social’ shares the importance of understanding how to allow use Social Media to improve your business.  It is very important to blend both Social Media Marketing and Online Reputation together to help share your story with the world.

Now unless your digital legs are stronger than the most tested athletes of all-time than you will need to place your efforts into Online Reputation because you cannot run from it.  Since the beginning of time, reputation is everything and your business has to have a plan.  As you have just read, it isn’t hard to understand what to do about managing your Online Reputation.  You just have to do it, and have the right plan of action.

Is your business Social?

The world today has every business talking about Social Media, Online Reputation, Content Management and other terms which may sound Greek to the average person.  Terms that have turned that geek from your high school into today’s millionaire.  Automotive Dealerships, Churches, Attorneys, Real Estate Agents, and almost every type of business have added so-called digital media experts to their labor pool.  Sometimes starting salaries in upwards of $60,000 to $90,000 have been awarded to twenty-year-old-something wonder kids.  Unfortunately, the results have not always been favorable and many of these companies are no better off than when they first started entering the digital highway.

First things first!  Every business should have a plan.  This is where most companies fail when trying to play in the digital playground.  It starts and ends with leadership.  Many company leaders are very good at what they do, but they do not know how to promote their business digitally.  It’s not because the leader isn’t smart enough.  It’s because they are afraid to learn digital.  These are the leaders that say, “I don’t use Facebook, or know what a Tweet is.”  That doesn’t mean their potential customers are not congregating here, and it certainly doesn’t mean to act like an ostrich burying your head in hopes that the situation will change.  Embrace technology, and have your management team embrace it too.  You don’t have to be an expert, but you do have to use common sense.  Now, I know that isn’t you so keep reading along.

In days passed, leaders understood demographics of who listened to what on the radio (before Satellite), what shows were popular on cable television (before TIVO & DVR), how many newspapers were in circulation (when newspapers still existed), and what highways had the most traffic (Flying cars are on the way, we hope).  The internet isn’t any different.  These same potential customers are now spending thousands of hours in front of their computer getting entertainment, news, and information.  They utilize handheld devices (smartphones, tablets, handheld gaming systems, phasers) easily identifying the trends of the day.  The only difference in 2014 versus 1990 or even the year 2000 is the shift of where potential customers are lurking.   No longer are the days where every progressive city has a mall to attract consumers to shop.  It doesn’t make sense to build these massive structures for shopping just like it doesn’t make sense to throw your money in the wind (toilet) when it comes to advertising and marketing.

If you are still with me, you have completed the first stage by admitting that you have a problem.  This is the biggest hurdle.  So where do you go from here?  It’s easier than you may think.

Now, I am assuming you have a website that tells your story.  If not, stop reading now and start focusing on your website today.  Before you focus on your website, make sure you fire anyone and everyone in your company that has anything to do with your marketing team and the decision not to have an optimal website.

However, if I have not lost you yet then you are probably a company that has Facebook, Twitter, and perhaps even a YouTube account.  You may even have a verified Google Plus and Yahoo page accompanying your digital network or you may even dabble in Pinterest.  This is a great starting point and now you need a plan to make them start working for you.  You can also look in the mirror and be happy that you can briefly understand that your kids are not reverting back to their infant years when they are talking about where they were hanging with their friends (Google, Yahoo, Twitter, Facebook, SnapChat, and Instagram).  (You don’t have to like it, but you do have to accept it.)

Key point number one is to understand that the consumer does not want to know you are advertising to them.  Social Media hot spots are where Person A gives a Shout Out to Person B, or Person C shares a moment on Thursday that happened 10 to 15 years ago.  That doesn’t mean you can’t advertise to potential customers.  You just have to understand there is a way to talk with the consumer without invading their space.

Let me back up my point here.  Facebook has 1.28 Billion active users.  YouTube has a large share of 1 Billion.  Google has 540 million while Twitter grows each day, currently with 255 million users.  Instagram boasts 200 million while LinkedIn has 187 million.  Pinterest is sitting at 70 million and Vine has 40 million.  What highway, radio station, television show, or newspaper has that kind of reach? If your business is not social, and you are not planning to embrace the future, fire yourself!

Are you still with me?  I’m glad because although it makes for an interesting dinner conversation about how you fired yourself, it isn’t pleasant or good for your ego.

Be careful here.  Every 20-something with a computer who wears tight jeans, a t-shirt with a clever saying, and tennis shoes claims to be a social media expert.  Colleges even offer this as a course, and some of you reading this blog have paid for it.  

Social Media was meant for two or more people to hangout (virtually I might add) or communicate in a (virtual) common place of interest.  Now something that you might like to know when it comes to your business.

Social Media has become a place for Person A to brag with Person B through Z and all of B through Z’s friends and family about Little A’s Certificate of Appreciation for enrolling in the running club.  Then you have someone else chime in saying how happy they are for Person A and subtly tell the group how excited they are for their little one who earned the Perfect Attendance Award.  (I know this award has been around forever, but really?  We still give an award for doing what you are supposed to do?)

Social Media is not about posting your product or service three times a day on Facebook.  It isn’t about placing your commercial on YouTube.  It’s not about using 140 characters to remind us to try your widget or read your blog about free-range chickens (or whatever you’re into).  Too many so called social media companies love telling you they manage all of their channels.  Then they are excited to show you how many times they have posted to your network.  Next time asked them point blank if they have ever posted that same content to another one of their clients.  That is not social media.

Now to training 101.  What if you were able to get Person A to share with Person B through Z and all of their friends and family about your product or services you provide?  What if conversations continued about your great product and services on all of the social media channels?  In addition, what if every time you earned a new customer they became another virtual mouthpiece for your company’s product or service.  Not because you asked them or tricked them into singing your praises, but because they wanted to sing your praises.  We are living in times where ordinary people want to promote the businesses and products they enjoy, whether it be a tweet about how excited they are for the latest summer blockbusters, sharing a link on Reddit of a website with really funny T-Shirts, or making a status update about a tasty new flavor of Gatorade, if you use social media to get people excited about your business – they WILL!!!

This is working Social Media.  Now, go be Social!

Phone App changes how Businesses Share their Story

DeliveryMaxx announces additional enhancement to their smartphone app. Already the leader in digital content management; their clients will have an even stronger competitive advantage in the digital playground on the internet.

May 16, 2014 - DALLAS -- Every organization and company has to understand the importance the internet plays in the way they conduct their business.  No longer are the days a website is self-sufficient in sharing their story.  As a matter of fact Social Media Marketing and Online Reputation Managerment are two of the most important pieces when it comes to companies trying to sell, advertise, or promote products and services on the web.  There is a true science to these efforts and if not strategically planned correctly organizations will be left behind.
Almost five years ago, Josh Deaton and James Schaefer formed DeliveryMaxx where they envisioned would change the way businesses would brand, sell and communicate with potential customers on the web.  Their core business focused on helpig the automotive industry.  It started out as a simple idea where the automotive dealerships' customer were enabled to share their great experience via social media and online review sites for the world to see.  DeliveryMaxx would create a digital network for the automotive dealership and then utilzing the DeliveryMaxx Smartphone App and Review portal be able to encourage the customer to share this experience with all of their friends and family.  As long as the automotive dealership provided a great product and customer service; their praises were shared ten times as much as if the dealership just relied on old business practices.  "Our dealership has increased sales by 70% because we use DeliveryMaxx's services and our CSI scores have never been better" states, Jim Proctor, General Manager of Chrsyler Jeep Dodge City of McKinney.

Because DeliveryMaxx stayed true to simple business practices and common sense utilizing today's technology; they have expanded into helping clients such as hotels, employment agencies, youth organizations, churches, non-profits and CPA's.  "There is no limit to the businesses or organizations we can help.  If a company or organization has a story to tell; DeliveryMaxx can customize a program that will help them help their customer share their great experience with the world" expresses Schaefer, Chief Operating Officer and Co-Founder of DeliveryMaxx.

The process is very simple.  A customer of a business has their picture taken with the DeliveryMaxx phone app (which is available for both iOS and Android with Windows coming soon).  The customer is then provided an opportunity to share their testimony on the DeliveryMaxx review portal.  With DeliveryMaxx's Patent Pending Program; both the testimony and the picture are combined and shared throughout the company's digital network driving business back to the client's website or through the doors of their location.

Today, DeliveryMaxx has announced an update to the smartphone app.  Organizations will be able to include a video testimony or their customer as well as a video walk around that will also be shared throughout the clients' digital network.  The walk around video for automotive clients is very important because they will be able to share their new and used inventory to all of their sites instantaneously.  However, this same function will be important to DeliveryMaxx's non-auto clients too.  They will be able to communicate to potential customers with any message they desire very efficiently.  Deaton, Chief Executive Officer states, "Our program produced phenomenal results already for our clients, but now with the video enhancement they will dominate the web even faster.  Content is key to any businesses digital success.  The search engines loves words, pictures, and videos.  DeliveryMaxx is able to provide all three creating unlimited content for our clients enabling them to become the most relevant search on the web."

DeliveryMaxx is a Cinderella story.  Financed by both Deaton and Schaefer; DeliveryMaxx has fast become the talk of the digital world.  "We have created patent-pending technology that actually provides opportunities for customers to share their experiences with future potential customers.  We do this utilizing social media and online reputation working together to produce these measurable results" states Schaefer.  Other companies have tried to mimic DeliveryMaxx, but fall short of the mark because they do not have real people doing real work for their clients.  "Those companies are all automated, and fail to uses simple business practices that make sense for their clients" he adds.

In addition to the phone app; DeliveryMaxx also includes an Online Review program that helps customers give reviews to all of the major social media sites.  "Not only do we build great original content for dealerships, help them obtain online reviews; but we also monitor the review sites and help respond to each review.  This has worked very well for our automotive dealerships, but we are finding that almost any company who depends on online reviews and content is able to utilize our services" comments Deaton.  DeliveryMaxx also writes blogs and press releases for their clients as well which adds even more content to their clients digital network.

The app can be downloaded by anyone, but will only be able to be utilized by DeliveryMaxx customers.

"DeliveryMaxx was created methodically filling the gaps that dealerships were unable, or did not know how to fill to complete the circle of attracting a new customer, providing great service or products, and having them share their experience immediately with friends and family" explains Schaefer, thus providing automotive dealerships and other organizations with a unique ability to increase CSI Scores, Sales, Customer Loyalty, Service Revenue, Online Reputation, Search Engine Optimization, and Branding.

DeliveryMaxx is a privately held company providing social media marketing, web-based solutions, customer retention, and other advertising services and is based in Rockwall, Texas.  DeliveryMaxx is the preferred provider for companies needing to improve their web presence, online reputation, customer satisfaction, sales, and innovative strategies that enables them to confidently deploy their mission-critical products and services in today's competitive environment for market share.

Clients of DeliveryMaxx include automotive dealerships, hotels, surgeons, insurance agencies, marketing agencies, chruches, educational institutes, non-profits, sports teams, attorneys, employment agencies, and politicians.

Kinky Friedman Spends an hour with The ANE Show this Saturday

Every Saturday morning Jim Proctor known as “Doc” on The ANE Show, a popular Dallas Talk Radio Show, has to control characters like James “The Spin Doctor” Schaefer and “The Guru” Josh Deaton as they take great pride in shocking the cast of characters with their outrages adventures across the country.  The “Doc” even deals with TV stars such as Paul Salfen and Actress/Model Jennifer Reed.  Add a Gorilla in the mix and Saturday mornings at 9:00 a.m. on 1190 AM can be quite crazy.

This week, humorist and country music singer Kinky Friedman will join The ANE Show family for an hour of fun and excitement.  There is no telling what will be said on air this weekend.  Past comments from the former Texas Gubernatorial Candidate who is running for the Agriculture Commissioner of Texas will are well documented across the media.  Some of his most famous comments from his lips are “I support gay marriage.  I believe they have a right to be as miserable as the rest of us.” And “We’ve got to clear some of the room out of the prisons so we can put the bad guys in there, like the pedophiles and the politicians.”

It’s highly unlikely that the colorful candidate will go on to win a statewide position in deep-red Texas, but Friedman did make the Democratic primary runoff for the position.  He will compete against cattle farmer Jim Hogan in the May 27th contest, but a Republican is heavily favored to win the general election.  Legalizing marijuana is one of Friedman’s top priorities.

No matter what your position is on the elections, The ANE Show likes to have fun.  The popular radio show has entertained guest such as Dallas Cowboys Greats Randy White and Drew Pearson.  They have enjoyed rubbing elbows with the first Wide Receiver to win the Heisman Trophy and Oakland Raider Great Tim Brown.  The first women to play professional in a contact position in men’s professional football Jen Welter has also made a guest appearance on the show.  Not to mention, movie stars like Mathew McConaughey, Ice-Cube, Kevin Hart, and Ben Stiller have shared great stories about their upcoming movies.

Be sure to tune in this Saturday morning to The ANE Show on 1190 AM to hear what is said.  You can also be part of the show by sending in your questions or comments to https://www.facebook.com/TheANEShow or Twitter @TheANEShow!

Find your Pot of Gold with The ANE Show

Every Saturday morning at 9:00 a.m. on 1190 AM thousands of listeners tune into the radio listening to the Doc, Guru, Coolest Guy in Dallas, Spin Doctor, and beautiful actress/model Jennifer Reed to find information on the latest in Automotive, News, and Entertainment.  The show allows listeners to find their “pot of gold” of information in a humorous way.
There is no telling what this cast of characters is going to talk about on any particular show.  The shows outline will share the latest in information about the automotive buying experience, but adds a lot of fun to the mix with today’s news and entertainment.  Combine today’s current information with social media interaction with listeners provided by the founders of DeliveryMaxx and the talk radio show heads into uncharted territory.

The ANE Show which stands for Automotive News & Entertainment is hosted by longtime General Manager, Jim Proctor of Dodge City of McKinney.  He is joined by a cast of experts to share information and opinions during the show.

This cast of characters, and we do mean “characters” spend Saturdays providing great information, but they have fun doing it to.  There is no telling what will be said on air, because they are real people with real stories.  When listeners tune the radio in on 1190 AM they will hear a cast talking about weekly news stories.  It is truly “Gold Radio Talk” at its finest.

Nothing is safe as the Josh “The Guru” Deaton and James “The Spin Doctor” Schaefer (Founders of DeliveryMaxx) have been known to get into trouble at home for sharing too many family secrets.  

The youngsters of the bunch are also what we call “The Pretty People.”  Paul Salfen and Jennifer Reed grace the cover of magazines and can be seen at various times when perusing through the TV channels.  Not only do they experience the life of the Rich and Famous; they gossip about it as well.  These two will share how “the other people” live.

Now, this show would not happen without the Doc keeping everyone in check.  Proctor makes sure that each show goes off without a hitch despite the efforts of the cast trying to take the show down treacherous curves.

The show is truly magically delicious!

The ANE Show airs every Saturday at 9 AM on KFXR 1190AM.  It is a one hour radio talk show with four segments which include automotive, news, celebrity updates, and great information.  For more information about the most talked about radio show in Dallas visit http://www.theANEShow.com.

The ANE Show becomes the Gold Standard in Talk Radio

Fresh off of one of their most successful shows with Dallas Cowboys Legends Randy White and Drew Pearson; The ANE Show continues to entertain listeners with “water cooler” talk radio.  Listeners feel like they are sitting in the studio or “coffee shop” with The ANE Show radio cast.
Dallas Ft. Worth doesn’t mess around when it comes to big games, events and has even Bigger Personalities that love to hear themselves talk.

That’s exactly what you get when you have a “Doc”, a “Bubba”, “The Coolest Guy in Dallas”, a “Guru”, a “Gorilla”, a “Spin Doctor”, and a beautiful Actress/Model.  You mix this cast of characters up letting them discuss Automotive, News, Sports, and Entertainment and the show becomes a plethora of information and excitement.  At the start of the 9 o’clock hour on Saturday mornings; the show becomes a fast pace of twist and turns that every listener can take part in.  If this radio show were any longer; it would solve all of the world’s problems.

The ANE Show is hosted by Jim “Doc” Proctor who is the General Manager at Dodge City of McKinney.  He is joined by “Bubba” who is the Internet Director at the dealership and a consumer advocate.  Josh “The Guru” Deaton, and “The Spin Doctor”, James Schaefer of DeliveryMaxx handle Social Media Interactions and up to date news stories.  “The Coolest Guy in Dallas”, Paul Salfen and the Beautiful Jennifer Reed introduce listeners to the rich and famous in entertainment.  Both Host the Drew Pearson Show, and Jennifer is an Actress/Model.

This cast of characters, and we do mean “characters” spend Saturdays providing great information, but they have fun doing it to.  There is no telling what will be said on air, because they are real people with real stories.  When listeners tune the radio in on 1190 AM they will hear a cast talking about weekly news stories.

A few months ago, Jim Proctor and Jeff Thompson of Dodge City of McKinney met up with the Founders of DeliveryMaxx; Josh Deaton and James Schaefer to discuss developing a radio show that provided fun, entertainment, celebrity updates, current news, and important automotive information from a consumer perspective.  Thus, The ANE Show was born and has created a strong buzz across the airwaves.  The ANE Show characters have quickly become the Gold Standard in Talk Radio!

Both Proctor who goes by “Doc” on the show, and Thompson who is known as “Bubba” have always wanted to provide an Automotive Show that would help consumers with their buying and vehicle maintenance needs.  Although there are other automotive shows; their vast experience and knowledge of the demographics of today’s drivers made them realize that the typical automotive show did not provide any entertainment for the listeners.  That is when they turned to the boys from DeliveryMaxx.

Josh “The Guru” Deaton and “The Spin Doctor” James Schaefer have developed a patent-pending digital program with their company that helps automotive dealerships and other clients engage in “Real Conversations” with consumers and potential buyers.  The DeliveryMaxx solution is a one-of-a-kind program that helps companies improve their online reputation and social media presence.  By adding DeliveryMaxx to The ANE Show, listeners have become very loyal to the cast and feel like they are in the studio with these guys.  With DeliveryMaxx, listeners can communicate with the show by following on Twitter or Facebook.  Every question that is asked puts the listener into a drawing for upcoming Dallas Stars or Dallas Mavericks tickets.

Knowing that big names attract more listeners; these four guys looked at what they call “The Pretty People” in the industry.  Added to the show were “The Coolest Guy in Dallas” Paul Salfen and the beautiful actress/model Jennifer Reed.  Listeners get to hear stories from celebrities like Matthew McConaughey, Metallica, Ice Cube, Kevin Hart, and Ben Stiller.  All have shared wonderful insights on upcoming movies, and provided listeners with inside information into their personal lives.
Last show consist of Hall of Famer and former Defensive Lineman of the Dallas Cowboys Randy White and The Original #88, Drew Pearson.  The show was a hit from the start, but what would you expect from two of the most beloved Dallas Cowboys of All-Time?

The ANE Show airs every Saturday at 9 AM on KFXR 1190AM.  It is a one hour radio talk show with four segments which include automotive, news, celebrity updates, and great information.  For more information about the most talked about radio show in Dallas visit http://www.theANEShow.com.
