iOS6 vs. Ford SYNC

Today Apple released their new iOS6 to current iPhone users, history has shown me that EVERY time there is a new iOS update for the iPhone it kicks off bluetooth users of Ford SYNC.  

I understand it's pretty much inevitable because these are usually big software updates and the Ford SYNC system is (1) built from Microsoft and (2) would need to be updated every day if we wanted SYNC to be up-to-date…

What Percentage of Your Store’s Sales is Generated by Internet Leads?

As a follow up to my recent blog on Internet Lead ROI, I would like to discuss another important metric for dealerships to track: the percentage of a store’s sales that can be attributed to Internet leads.

Are You Surrounded?

 

I don't know about you but I'm a sucker for classic westerns.  Even though about 10 minutes into the movie, you can pretty much figure it out, I always enjoy the "old west" from Hollywood's perspective.  It was a simpler time.  Or was it?      

Back then, at least in the movies, there was always a point when the good guys were surrounded.  It always looked like there was no way out.  Or, as the cliche goes, "It looks like the end of the line."  Yet, seemingly out of nowhere a…

Eighth Element of the Automotive Consumer Journey

Don't forget Eighth Element in Modern Automotive Consumer Journey from Shopping to Buying!

When I read The Zero Moment of Truth (ZMOT) I think back to my early sales days – with more hair and less weight! – standing in the showroom next to a brand spanking new Dodge Aries. From that vantage point, I'd see consumers who would drive from dealership to dealership, gathering information and brochures while adding or removing cars from their consideration…

The Remarketing Effect of Live Chat

The benefits of remarketing (or retargeting) for dealers cannot be overstated. Remarketing is the technique of having your dealership's ads displayed across a search network as prospects leave your dealership website and visit other sites within the search network. The way it works is that the prospect's IP address is noted and a cookie is attached to the prospect's browser. Then, for a set period of time, your dealership's ads are continually displayed to that prospect,…
