West Palm Beach, FL (PRWEB) June 26, 2006 -- Chumney & Associates Advertising and Marketing announced its recommendation and endorsement of the new Ask Patty website. Chumney & Associates specializes in car dealership advertising, and is one of the nation’s largest agencies in this field.

“Ask Patty is a breakthrough. It’s a unique and comprehensive website that provides women with the solid facts and recommendations to make informed decisions about buying cars or trucks,” Mike Chumney, agency president, said. “Ask Patty’s advisory board and contributing editors are an outstanding group of women automotive industry experts, knowledgeable in all aspects of cars and car retailing,” he said.

“Women purchase over half of all the vehicles in the United States, spending over $80 billion every year, and have a major influence on up to 95% of the car buying decisions. Until Ask Patty, there hasn’t really been a website exclusively devoted to women’s needs and concerns,” Chumney said.

“Today, car buyer’s attitudes and motivations can change daily, so our job gets tougher. We have to study the market constantly to develop and use new media and promotions. It’s a dynamic business that requires innovative marketing tools.’

‘Ask Patty is a perfect example,’ Chumney continued, ‘Ask Patty president, Jody DeVere, did a great job creating the concept and website. It’s provides a woman-friendly environment for sharing information and addressing issues and concerns. Best of all, it’s a safe haven for any level of question a woman might have regarding car buying, car selling, car maintenance, repair, car care and safety.”
