Every day local shoppers see your inventory in online ads and on your website. The average VIN sitting on your lot is presented hundreds of times. What if you knew who was looking at a particular VIN, how long they were looking or how often? What if you knew which VINs were getting the most activity? Would you merchandise them differently? Would you price them differently?
Understanding the journey that a VIN takes online – from the time it hits your inventory to the time it leaves your lot – can help you be more efficient with your advertising, more effective with your sales processes, and ultimately more profitable. Building on the “Consumer Journey” research that was presented at 12th Digital Dealer Conference & Exposition, in this session you will explore the characteristics of several “VIN Journeys”, as observed and tracked within the massive data warehouse of online shopping activity that is managed by Cobalt. Jon Quade and Chuck Tilton are sharing their expertise with you.
What will you learn and what action items will you take back to the dealership?
1. Learn how to tailor your advertising and focus your message on the VINs that a shopper has shown interest in.
2. Learn how to make your sales process more personal and effective based on the online shopping activity of your ups.
3. Learn to make smarter merchandising and pricing decisions to become more profitable.
