Google Advisor For Car Buyers

Google is testing out its advisor product with car dealers/buyers in the San Francisco Bay area.  After having a mild heart attack and visions of "Tru Car" on steroids, I quickly realized that it will simply force marketing companies to re-structure their dealership offerings.

Although I am not aware of the ins and outs of its paid search as it pertains to car dealers, what I first noticed is that new car pictures are found on the front page of a search.  As a car shopper, I would…

The Road Less Profited

We've talked for years in automotive retail about “The Road to the Sale”, and I’m clearly one of the many supporters of that path to sales success.   However, too many of us are still on "The Road Less Profited".  Why?  Because we are not getting more sales (and…

Keep it Simple, Keep it Fresh!

“Poke” was soooo 2008... Utilizing @Tagging in Facebook for your dealership‘s fan page.

When I'm working with a dealer on their social media strategies one of the basics I always stress as a useful tool is the "tag" feature in Facebook. There has always been the ability to tag someone you know in a photograph, and that can go a long way for your dealership with delivery or customer event photo.

I wanted to talk about other ways to tag your customers or other pages that may be of interest and benefit to your fan page and your fans. It’s called…
