OH PLEASE - NOT THAT!!!

There is a statement we've all heard over the years in the car business.  It usually comes from the dealer or a senior manager.  When I hear it, it makes me crazy.  Now, I know that some of you will say that driving me crazy is a short trip, but this one makes me glad that I'm not on a roof when I hear it.  I might jump.

Six of One, Half Dozen of Another-Website Visitors Are Not All Equal

Remarketing We all remember playing the game “Would You Rather,” so here’s an digital automotive marketing version of the infamous question: Would you rather: a) have six different people visit your site one time b) have one person visit your website six times?

  2. There is a longer timeline than many realize to capture and…
