Does anyone know of any dealers that have cancelled traditional advertising budgets entirely and moved 100% online with their marketing money?

If you know of a super-gutsy dealer that has done this, post a link so we can all see the "anchor" website. This would be very courageous, IMHO, but I'm thinking there must be a dealer that has done this. Just don't know who.

I happened on to your question. Yes I have several dealers who after our presentations and marketing time concepts have allowed zero newspaper. Go to my web site and see examples. Our process is designed to bring the customer from the web site to the dealership. I will be happy to share how we do this with a go-to-meeting look see if you have the time. Just call me direct at 727.644.5609.
By the way the show-up percentage from our program is over 70% from the web-site to the dealership. Everthing we do is trackable from the site to the sale and from the site to no-show.

Hi Bill.... I'm not a dealership professional but instead a vendor. I'm interested in learning about dealers that have gone entirely online with their ad budgets. If you know of some of these dealers, post a link so we can see their website.

Hi David:
You will want to go to Grappone. This dealer has been in business in the North East over fifty years. A very average dealer.
was running news paper and other advertising as dealers do. We have a very hi-tech concept using what we call "Blended Media", we have turned him into a HyperLink dealer, not at all what you expect to see when you go to his Web site. The result is an increase of over 17% of closing activity from the Web-site. Because of limited news paper marketing his true cost for sales preformance is very low. Our theme changes on the spot, or as in this case we have a monthly theme. We produce reports that track every visit to the site and the results are amazingly accurate. Take a look at

Hey David,

Just ran across your topic & thought it was an interesting one at that. I work for the Douglas Auto Group in Summit New Jersey & we literally spend "0" $$$ on traditional advertising i.e. newspaper, radio and such, although we do have two billboards(we had four & the last two are probably going to be walking the plank shortly!~lol)), that`s it when it comes to traditional advertising. We`re really focusing on our web presence i.e. video, social networks & obviously, our websites. We also do not use any Pay-per-click, as I optimize all of our websites by myself, with much success. If you Google something like this, "Ken Beam Cars" you`ll get a taste of what I`ve been doing for about three years to establish Douglas on the Internet.

We`re days away from launching a totally brand new main website which I`m heavily involved in & really excited about!
Check out our current sites at and & keep in mind that our is going to be reintroduced in the next few days & is really based on an very unique platform which will definitely raise an eye brow or two!~

Hi Ken...

Thanks so much for the info. Exactly what I was looking for

David Book . 100% pure digital . Nothin fancy . He knows what to buy , when to sell and for how much ..."rinse and repeat" . The guy is a machine and has measurable "process" start to finish .

sells 200 used per month from a single rooftop in Akron ohio . Everyone is trying to figure out how he does it .
