Ford Canada and the North American Auto Show Part 2

This is the 2nd blog post on my Ford Experience. To read the 1st post you can find it here.

First day 150 bloggers around the world converged in Dearborn Michigan for the North American International Auto Show on behalf of Ford Motor Company. The first night took us to the Henry Ford Museum that was not open to the public yet. We had the opportunity to have dinner amongst some famous automobile artifacts. The integration of 18 touch screen kiosks at various locations at the exhibit was a great mix of old history and new technology. It's a great way to learn and see the progression of the automobile. This is stuff I didn't think would interest me but it was actually enlightening. Learning the significance in historical moments and change in design and style is very cool and inspiring from a creative sense for me.

This is one of the older vehicles on display at the Henry Ford Museum.

It wasn't only cars at the museum. Here is the original menu in one of the diners displayed at Ford Museum. Overall it was a great evening to understand the history of Ford and it's importance in the automobile industry.

The next day we had the opportunity to wake up very early to see the big announcement and showcase of the Ford Fusion at Joe Louis Arena. This press conference was only open to auto journalist and Ford employees. This is probably the first time a significant number in attendance were blogger/social media types. The atmosphere had a very Cirque De Soleil feel to it. If you click on the image below it should give you a bit of a 180 degree feel to the event.

The showcase of the Ford Fusion.

Here is the media scrum after the presentation. Numerous media outlets on hand for this event. Including FOX2 below.

Overall the sentiment online and throughout media outlets have been positive and I'm sure have exceeded expectations in terms of coverage for Ford. Here is another local Detroit News coverage.

Finally on the same evening of the launch of the Ford Fusion we had the opportunity to visit Ford Headquarters. Scott Monty (Head Of Social Media) was able to address the bloggers with some stats and social metrics across the various Social Media platforms. Reaching out to bloggers that blog about fashion, lifestyle and digital moms seems to be effective.

Social Media stats of that day:

Over 2200 social media mentions.

Reached over 5 million unique followers on Twitter.

40% of the coverage that day was on Ford. Chrysler had 18% and GM had 15%.

*Stay tuned for more on this series for Ford. Keep in mind I was never asked to blog or post about this event. I was invited by Ford to experience the NAIAS and get a rare glimpse behind the scenes of Ford.*

Hmm it appears like your website ate my first
comment (it was super long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I had written and say, I'm thoroughly
enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I'm still new to the whole thing. Do you have any tips and hints for newbie blog writers? I'd really
appreciate it.

Hey there! Quick question that's completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My web site looks weird when browsing from my iphone. I'm trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to correct this problem.
If you have any suggestions, please share. Cheers!

Howdy! I know this is sort of off-topic however I had to ask.
Does managing a well-established website such as yours take a
lot of work? I'm brand new to running a blog but I do write in my journal on a daily basis. I'd like to start a blog so I can easily
share my own experience and thoughts online. Please
let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips for new aspiring blog owners.

Hello there. Sorry to hassle you but I happened to run
across your blog site and noticed you happen to be using the exact same theme as me.
The only issue is on my website, I'm struggling to get the layout looking like yours. Would you mind emailing me at: melinasnowden@gmail.com so I can get this figured out. By the way I've bookmarked your web site:

Greetings! I was interested to know if setting up a website
such your own: http://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=5342932475970175108&postID=6695986993682030122 is
tough to do for inexperienced people? I've been wanting to develop my own blog for a while now but have been turned off mainly because I've always believed
it required tons of work. What do you think? Thanks

Awesome blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?
I'm hoping to start my own website soon but I'm
a little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with
a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option?

There are so many options out there that I'm totally overwhelmed .. Any recommendations? Bless you!

شركة مكافحة الصراصير بالرياض

مما لا شك فيه أن انتشار الصراصير هو شئ مزعج، ويسبب الكثير من الإحراج، كما أن انتشار الصراصير لا يعني بالضرورة أن المكان غير نظيف، بل ربما يتلخص الأمر في وجوده بالقرب من المكان فقط، لكنه أيضا علامة خطرة، فوجودة فى المكان يعني أنه ربما ينتقل للعيش في نفس المكان، وتزداد الخطورة إذا ما كانت الصراصير حاملة للبيض الذي سرعان ما يفقس وينشر الكثير والكثير مكونا عشيرة كبيرة وضخمة من الصراصير وذلك نتيجة وجود واحدا منهم فقط، لذلك تقوم شركة مكافحة الصراصير بالرياض باستخدام وسائل متطورة وحديثة لرش المبيدات وذلك للتخلص الأمن من الصراصير تماماـ دون أن يؤثر ذلك علي صحة جميع أفراد المنزل.
