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 the 12th Digital Dealer Conference and Exposition, Max Steckler, vice president of advertising at Cobalt and David Winter, vice president of Cobalt’s Business Intelligence Center of Excellence and data science organization, 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. Max Steckler and David Winter are sharing their expertise with you.
