As a result of two brand new research studies from Polk and KS&R, we now know for the first time ever how much time car buyers spend on the car shopping process, how much time they spend online versus offline, and which sites they spend their time on. Likewise, we have important new insights about consumers’ vehicle cross-shopping habits as well as the automotive purchase funnel. Consequently, we can draw some important conclusions about how automotive advertising can effectively influence car buyers during the shopping process. In addition, we will reveal how search engines and social networking sites factor into the equation. Howard Polirer is sharing his expertise with you.
