Tracking the return on ad spend has always been a challenge for dealers for both online and traditional campaigns. For instance, although Google is the primary source of direct traffic to a dealer’s website, almost 70% of these shoppers are using your dealership name to find you. Therefore, knowing where the awareness of your dealership and vehicles was originally created is critical to determining which sources of advertising are driving people to Google to find you by name. By identifying this indirect attribution of your advertising, it is possible to reallocate ad dollars to the most effective sources, thereby lowering ad spend and increasing leads. It is imperative that dealers know where to spend ad dollars to obtain the highest possible return, although very few shoppers come directly to your website from these third-party ad sources and technology now allows us to uncover where shoppers were prior to using search engines to find you by name. Jason Ezell is sharing his expertise with you.
