How Do Millennials Buy Cars?

Started by Kevin Lewis in SEARCH ENGINE MARKETING (SEM) - Includes Organic Optimization (SEO) and Search Engine Advertising (SEA) Strategies, Tactics and Best Practices Jul 24. 0 Replies

Hello everybody!There hasn't been much activity here recently but I still want to share my thoughts with those who keep looking for improvements. The topic that I want to bring up today is the way young adults think when they want to buy a car. Many dealers make one mistake by approaching every customer the same way. It is similar to trying to unlock different doors with the same key. People are different even within one generation, not to mention the inherent differences of…Continue

Successful dealerships strive to recruit, hire, and retain the best-available management talent. Once that talent is on board, effective performance management processes must be in place to provide these yet-unproven (to us) managers with feedback on their work results and to ensure that they are receiving the tools and support to become high achievers. So I always ask my potential client-dealers to describe their method of evaluating the overall competence of the individuals on their…Continue

Let’s start with one of my favorite usability rants: hot spots.  They’re quick, which is probably why three OEM iPad apps incorporate them.  They’re also dirty – pretty […]

As more in-vehicle audio and entertainment options become available to consumers, the question of satellite radio’s relevance has become more prominent.
