In the late ‘90s, as automotive consumers flocked to the web to conduct vehicle research, dealers responded by creating the industry’s first generation of Internet marketing – large portal sites with a wide array of vehicle information designed to educate consumers and capture sales leads. With the emergence of search engines as traffic drivers, dealers harnessed the power of SEM, SEO and e-mail by creating ever more sophisticated web sites designed to capture this traffic – and the second generation of Internet marketing was born.
Today, in an era when online users spend more time on Facebook than on Google, auto dealers must change their focus yet again to mine the sales opportunities that lie at “the Edge of the Net,” in places such as mobile devices and sites such as Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter, where their consumers live and work. David Fish is sharing his expertise with you.
What will you learn and what action items will you take back to the dealership?
1. Ways to reach consumers through social sites like Facebook and Twitter.
2. How to use mobile campaigns and technology to drive business results.
3. How to post video and use the format to engage and attract additional customers.
