I needed a cool and interesting way to help sell cars with Click Click Car. I knew there was little chance of me talking about features and benefits of vehicles all day, so I came up with a better way.
Real Detroit Test Drive exists to share the stories of people who are doing great things that have a positive impact on the Detroit area. We wanted to do this in a way that showcased the city as well. What better way to accomplish both than while riding in cars?
The goal is to launch a new one every week to 10 days. We’ve got 5 of them loaded up for you on Real Detroit Test Drive. They’re easy to find as they’re sitting right there on the home page (although not necessarily in this order).
The next video in the series features John George of Blightbusters. We do a quick tour in a Jeep Cherokee through Brightmoor (an area that needs a lot of clean up that John and his crew have been working on for 26 years) as John explains the improvements that are coming as well as the ones they’ve made.
The third video features Menachem Kniespeck of Operation: Kid Equip and a whole lot of books. Menachem’s organization provides backpacks full of school supplies to needy children in 3 Southeastern Michigan counties and provides FREE books for children anywhere in the state of Michigan. You should really check out their website. We did drive in a GMC Acadia there and spent a little time in it as you can see.
The fourth video is about Scott Fader and Suits for Soldiers. Scott and his organization have helped over 100 veterans find jobs, over 10,000 with their resumes and have given away over 5,000 suits since July, 2013. If you know a veteran in need, they should speak with Scott. Scott and I roll through East Village in a Buick LaCrosse.
The fifth video features Sola Obayan of Pavo and Social Media Association of Michigan. Sola shares her passion for small business and social media. We also discuss how Pavo is in beta phase and looking for early adopters who want to connect their businesses with people who are passionate about it. We tore up the Midtown area in a Jeep Grand Cherokee.
We’ve had a blast making these and are looking forward to continuing to do so. We sure hope you enjoy the ride.
