Who is behind Social Media Motors?
Social Media Motors was founded in 2017 by Eamonn Blaney after he had been awarded a BSc in Digital Technology from the Dublin Institute of Technology. However this was not his first exposure to technology as he purchased his first computer in 1981, studied computer literacy with London's City & Guilds in 1983 and has been working on the internet since it became available in Ireland.
His lifelong passion for technology is only surpassed by his obsession with everything automotive. After qualifying from the DIT in 1984 with a Diploma in Motor Industry Management, he setup Prestige Care Care off Baggot Street in Dublin and after three years he moved to London to work as a main dealer new and used car salesman.
On return to Ireland Eamonn moved to Donegal and set up the first of Esso's service centers as well as beginning his rallying career. For three years he was Chairman of the Donegal Motor Club while securing over twenty class wins in the Gp A Nova which he maintained and rebuilt himself. Eamonn returned to Dublin in 2000 and held the position of Chief Operations Executive with Vimio plc prior to graduating from Trinity College with a Masters in Business Administration in 2008.
Over three decades Eamonn has worked in many industries and held various senior management positions culminating in his becoming the first CEO of International Quarry & Crusher Co LLC in the Sultanate of Oman in 2011 before returning to Ireland in 2015.
For the 'craic' Eamonn goes yacht racing, travels, writes, cooks, builds websites (this one!) and talks. A lot.... 🙂

Knowledge, Experience & Passion
The only way to succeed on social media is to nurture and build your company's relationship with your prospects and existing customers. This takes time and a high degree of emotional intelligence coupled with an encyclopedic knowledge of your products and services.
The Team at Social Media Motors have 'been around'. We have lived through several recessions and we have learnt things along the way that cannot be thought or picked up over a few short years. Experience is the difference between turning around a derogatory comment online or making the situation worse by an ill-thought out response.
There are a lot of social media companies to choose from and although they may be technically highly skilled, it is very unlikely that they can engage in automotive related fields as an authority. Social Media Motors can and it is this that makes us unique in the industry.
