They’re not just for restaurants anymore! Google has cracked the code on local dealer online marketing with its acquisition and integration of the famous Zagat’s rating service. The latest rollout of Google+ includes a new Local page for your dealership, which replaces and updates your Google Places listing. Why is this critical?
With a majority of car buyers spending more than half of their car buying research online, it’s more critical than ever for your dealership brand to be highly visible in your local market. Add to this the fact that the average car shopper visits, on an average, just two dealerships in-person before making a purchase and it’s more critical than ever for digital dealers to leverage the latest web tools to manage their reputation, encourage positive reviews, and get social with their customers. Tim McLain is sharing his expertise with you.
