Is Craigslist the Last 3rd Party Safe Haven for Dealer Inventory?

Posted by J.D. Rucker on July 6, 2015 at 4:32am 5 Comments

Back in 2007, I first started really using Craigslist for car dealer clients. It had some pretty powerful uses that had nothing to do with selling cars from the site itself. I used it for SEO and it was wonderful.

Links from Craigslist were pretty strong. I would hand-craft listings with unique content for two reasons: it gave the nice inbound link that was quickly indexed by the search engines and it had the ability to rank well individually on the search engines. It was a nice double-dip because it possessed something that no major 3rd-party sites do today: very few dealers used it so there was really no competition.

Things have changed over the years and the two things I loved about it are now gone. There are no…


Content Marketing

Posted by jozim eugenio on July 6, 2015 at 2:04am 1 Comment

What is content marketing? Basically, content marketing is a strategic way to deal with publishing valuable and consistent content or information to acquire and retain a wide audience and possibly get positive customer feedback.

This can be done in many different forms, including news, videos, blogs, articles, pictures and etc. Anything that can give information to the desired audience can be a way to deliver content. The best content marketing strategy is also better achieved when you can catch their attention and can make them pause, think, and make better choices.

Straight to Inventory versus Landing Pages for PPC

Posted by J.D. Rucker on July 3, 2015 at 5:00pm 4 Comments

There have been several studies in the automotive industry that have conclusively answered this question with hard data and compelling reasons why it is the way it is. Unfortunately, these "conclusive" studies often point in opposite directions and always seem to be conducted by companies that lean in one direction or the other.

Which is better for search PPC, banner ads, and other forms of advertising? Should you point your ads to take prospects directly into vehicle details pages or search results pages or should you send visitors to landing pages with messaging first? The reason that the studies seem to take the same data and yield different conclusions is based on two things: intent of the company doing the study and ways through which the data is collected and analyzed.

Social Media Retargeting Ad Campaigns Most Cited For Budget Increases

Posted by Ralph Paglia on July 2, 2015 at 2:00pm 1 Comment

Automotive Marketers are Most Likely to Increase their Social Retargeting Advertising Spend in 2015-2016

Do you use retargeting? If not, you’re part of a small group of marketers who don’t, based on an August 2014 study by Marin Software.

Fully 88% of US marketers polled used retargeting, and the majority of respondents who hadn’t implemented retargeting appeared to have caught on to the trend: 56% were planning to start executing the tactic within 12 months.

Display was the most popular channel for retargeting, used by 81% of marketers.

Search came in second, at 77%, while social, mobile and video trailed behind. However, Marin expected spending on…

The Difference Between Content Marketing and Digital Marketing and Why You Need Both

Posted by Dana Detrick-Clark on June 30, 2015 at 1:33pm 6 Comments

by Dana Detrick-Clark

Whether you're a high level, seasoned marketing professional within your organization, a beginner learning how to create marketing channels for your new venture, or anyone in between, you're inundated daily with buzzwords that can start to get a little too "gray area" in their definitions, leaving you confused as to what you really need, and what you don't.

Two such areas of marketing are Content Marketing and Digital Marketing. If you're not personally familiar with either, at first glance, they can seem to be interchangeable. This…


Your Reputation Your Success

Posted by Jonathan Floyd on June 30, 2015 at 10:00am 0 Comments

According to Wikipedia* Reputation Management is the influencing and/or control of an individual's or business's reputation.

Reputation Management - Do You Know How Your Business Is Perceived? 

To better your business reputation, make sure you follow up with your customers. This is especially the case if your business is larger. You need to make them feel important. Consider following up with them with automated systems you put in place. Get feedback of your services and goods while you do it.

When it comes to dealing with negative content about your brand online, the best defense is a good offense. Any negative feedback is sure to be lost in a sea of positive feedback, so make sure there is plenty of it. Make sure your content is always fresh so that older, negative things fade to the bottom of search pages.

Pay attention to social media forums. Most…
