Who are today’s online car shoppers? How can you identify them? And, how do you successfully market to them? Mike Darrow, chief sales officer for Edmunds.com, offers his perspective on today’s online car shoppers and how they are different, considering the “post-recession” consumer.
He’ll investigate the different segments of these shoppers and help provide indicators to identify who dealers are selling to. He will also teach you how to leverage online tools to gather information about consumers before they get to the dealership. This will enable you to effectively connect with them and create a unique buying experience.
He will highlight the marketing secrets that brought Edmunds.com 18 million monthly unique impressions — including successful SEO and SEM strategies, traffic evaluation, content building, and lead management. Edmunds.com is synonymous with consumer trust, so he will show you how to increase consumer confidence and utilize reviews. You will walk away from this workshop with new strategies and tactical practices to take back to your dealership to help you engage today’s consumers and sell more cars. Mike Darrow is sharing his expertise with you.
