10 Ways to Build Trust in Your Brand

Posted by Joseph Little on July 27, 2015 at 8:45am 0 Comments

Take Back Your Brand By Building Trust

The success of your business depends on the trust you are able to build for your brand. After all, consumers with confidence in specific brands will not only return and provide repeat business, but they will also spread word of mouth advertising to their friends, increasing the success of your business even more. Positive experiences drive them to return to the businesses that have been able to meet their needs and exceed their expectations. Most businesses and dealerships already know thatbuilding trust is a key component to creating lasting relationships, however, the specifics that lead up to gaining this trust sometimes need to be addressed. How do businesses and dealerships gain consumer trust and leverage brand influence so that shoppers return time and again to…

One Isn’t Always the Loneliest Number That You’ll Ever See

Posted by Timmy D. James on July 27, 2015 at 6:14am 0 Comments

In determining the effectiveness of video marketing, perhaps the metric most used is views - How many views did this video get? In fact, in a recent study by Yahoo-owned video platform Brightroll, 31 percent of polling respondents from over 70 ad agencies in the UK, placed completed views as the most important metric, followed by brand lift (28 percent) and a four-way tie between inventory quality, conversion, click-thru-rate and sales impact, which all came in at 8 percent. Hold on a minute. Does this mean that these marketers care about video views almost four times more than sales?

 

In video marketing, too much focus can be placed on…

To boost, or not to boost, that is the question.

Posted by Jeff Glackin on July 26, 2015 at 8:25pm 0 Comments

More and more every day I talk to dealerships that are coming to terms with the idea that to be successful on Facebook you have to spend money. Period, no question, it’s true. That’s beautiful. When I ask how they are spending money on Facebook the typical response is they are using the boost feature on the timeline. That is not so good. Don’t get me wrong. You will get results from it and boosting is much better than doing nothing but there is a better way.

With boosting you have limited options compared to those available to you in Ads Manager. In ads manager you have many more targeting options, you can set a daily budget, and choose bidding options. Initially it will be a little more work than using the Boost feature, but in the end your results will be much better.

The Growing Plague of Google Analytics Spam and How to Filter It

Posted by J.D. Rucker on July 26, 2015 at 8:06pm 0 Comments

If you're one who checks Google Analytics often to see how your traffic is doing, you've problem seen a lot of sites popping up in analytics over the last year or so that don't make sense. It would seem like these you're getting traffic from strange sites, particularly those selling SEO or other marketing services.

It's spam. That's the bad news. The good news is that it's not really hurting you. The better news is that you can get rid of it. You may have checked out some of these sites to find your link. Wait, where is it? There's no link to your website there. How did... what the... wait a second. You just did what they intended you to do. They got you to their website in hopes that you'll think, "Hey, I need SEO. Let's see what these guys can offer."…

The 99 Series: We’re Back!

Welcome to the Hope-Is-Not-a-Strategy post, where I remind everyone about the new way we generate buzz around our brand…hint: it’s not like the old way!  

Social media strategy for businesses used to revolve around a lot of hope—and also a lot of funny cat memes, but that was before we learned about the metrics that really matter. As dealerships and businesses work toward reaching a customer base that is largely mobile and increasingly insistent on being educated about the products and services they purchase, content marketing is more…

Increase Show and Close Rates with a Winning Lead Strategy

Posted by David Metter on July 23, 2015 at 6:00am 4 Comments

Most dealers close between twenty to thirty percent of the leads submitted through their own website. With that kind of close rate, its no wonder the prevailing wisdom is the more leads you can get, the better. To a certain extent this is true, but the quality of your leads is even more important than the quantity of leads. The more high-quality leads you get, the higher your show rates will be and the higher your close rates will be.

 

So how do you get more high-quality leads? Here's a step-by-step guide to formulating a winning lead strategy:

 

  1. What geographical areas do your want to draw customers from? Most dealers have a pretty good idea of where most of their customers reside. If you don't, your dealership management system (DMS), sales…

Don't Panic while you Lose Access to your Vehicle or Safe

Posted by Jirakee jones on July 22, 2015 at 9:14pm 0 Comments

Human is to Error

Motor vehicles and safes have great access control mechanisms which serve to ensure that only individuals with authorised access can gain entry. As human beings we are prone to err, be careless, or find ourselves in situations where we cannot access entry to our vehicles or safe deposit boxes.
