What is holding up Video?

Below you will find a short review of a new tool designed to allow dealerships to co-browse, share screens all while speaking face-to-face with their website visitors.  This seems like the future of automotive sales to me.  I am curious as to why this is so slow to come to our industry and others.  Any ideas on when technology like this will be widely used in the car business and what might stand in it's way?

 

There is a new piece of technology that will truly…

From ADM.com/Dealernerds

"Where is GOSO today?  It looks as if they left the dealers behind and are now doing Fortune 500 Companies.  This left the door wide open for DSA SocialDealer and Cobalt.  My bet is on @ ."

Can ADM Members Create A Website Conversion Standard?

I received a call from a dealer this week informing me that he was unhappy with the conversion rate of their website.  Specifically, he was looking at the unique visitor traffic per month to the number of leads that were generated by the website.

Today as many businesses extend their reach into smartphone, tablet, and touchscreen applications, one challenge still remains: providing the user, regardless of the platform, a consistent and productive user experience.

Facebook and Bing Together May Take on Google

Currently, the biggest problem with using Bing for SEM and Business SEO is the lack of search volume. Sure, they came in with roughly 20 percent of the total U.S. searches by the end of last year, but Google is still dominating them, essentially getting the rest of the market share (ignoring the pittance of Yahoo, AOL, and ASK.com). Optimizing for Bing hasn't…
