Let’s face it. Selling cars has never been harder, from stiff industry competition and margin compression, to a generally indecisive car buying audience, today’s dealers need every competitive advantage they can get.
Did you know that less than 50% of today’s consumers commit to a specific make and model when they start shopping? That’s why they visit dozens of websites and spend an average of 17 hours online researching their next vehicle purchase. Throughout this process, consumers are barraged with information about various makes and models as they add and delete vehicles from their consideration set which makes it extremely challenging for dealers to engage with new prospects while maintaining local customer loyalty in the process. As consumers move towards purchase, dealers must protect customers in their own backyard, use the right strategies to infiltrate the competition, and employ the right sales and communication processes to break through the digital clutter, to get consumers to stop their research and buy from them.

If you want to reach car buyers at the precise time and place during the shopping process, with the right messages that resonate to drive more consumers onto your website and into your store, this session is for you.
