It’s that time of year again. While decking the halls and ringing the bells, you know people are on the lookout to buy more stuff this time of year. Do you have a plan on how to keep them coming to your door? You can win over holiday shoppers this season. And no, it’s not all about toys.
Have you noticed how Black Friday advertisements have changed over the last few years? Stores began to open earlier and earlier Friday morning. Some even began creeping into Thursday. That may not be the best strategy anymore. Mobile may be your new best friend if you are working on your marketing plan as ‘tis the season for spending money.
Is your business looking for a new marketing avenue or audience? Tap into the U.S. Hispanic market.
Hispanics are the fastest growing ethnic segment in the United States, expected to grow 163 percent from 2010 to 2050, making up 30 percent of the population. This is seen as one of the last significant growth opportunities in the U.S. Latinos are no longer a sub-segment of the economy, but a prominent player in all aspects of American life.
Your showroom equals your brand. What story are you telling? Consistency is key; whether you’re baking a cake, perfecting your golf swing, or promoting the branding of your dealership. If you don’t think consistency is important, I’d like to sway you.
Consumers today are looking to streamline everything they do. Making a large purchase, such as a vehicle, is included in that streamlined-hopeful process. Quicker is better. What many consumers may not realize is that the car buying process can be streamlined, with appointment setting. Whether early on in the search process or the day of the purchase, setting appointments ensures that customers wants and needs will be acknowledged and met.

Promotional campaigns are similar to a game of chess. Chess is a game that takes a great amount of discipline and commitment; to learn the skills needed to outplay your opponent. So it is with successful promotional campaigns. It’s a game of you vs. consumers. How can you get them to take your bait and do exactly what you hoped they’d do? Just like a well-played chess match, you need a well thought out strategic plan to acquire new customers.
You’ve heard the saying, “Too much of anything is bad….” But, what if that’s wrong? What if too much of something is just enough to hook even the most doubtful critics.
Below are slogans that have been used over and over and over and over again, and we still haven’t had enough.
At any given moment, there are hundreds of things going on at your dealership. Paperwork, sales, test drives, phone calls, meetings, the list goes on. It’s easy to look around and see all these things happening around you. But, what about all the things that are happening that you can’t see? Namely, the customers contacting you through your website — those ever-present internet leads.
Looking for a quick sales booster for your dealership? Last month was a little slow and you need to make up some ground this month? A simple fix is to start generating more online reviews. 90% of customers say their buying decisions are influenced by online reviews.
But online reviews are from customers who already made a purchase, we want consumers who are currently looking for a vehicle.
