From Online Marketing to Online Sales: Shop-By-Payment Fills The Gap

As our industry looks to the future, many experts claim the next logical step from online marketing is online sales: that is, completing the car sales process, or as much of it as possible, online.

In 2012, CNW Research stated that only 13% of millennials say a new vehicle ranks as the number one product projecting enviable status. This utilitarian…
