Building a better vehicle details page (In Progress)

I wanted to share the progress I've made on a new theme for Dealer Commerce. The guts of any dealer website predominantly revolve around the search and details pages. I thought it was pretty critical to really nail these pages on each custom theme I build. Here's what I've come up with so far:

The goal of the…

Landing Page Optimization

Here I was sitting in a landing page optimization course and the first thing they did was throw a formula at me. C=4m+3v+2(i-f)-2a.Thankfully, it really wasn’t a mathematical formula, just a conversion sequence that helped you visualize conversion. Dr. Flint McGlaughlin the founder of MECLABS, the world's…

Facebook Unleashes Page Post Targeting

Facebook page posts can now target multiple audiences with many more options.

Over the next few weeks, Facebook Page admins might start to notice a strange button that looks a lot like a deer-shooting-target from a rifle gun. Could this possibly be a new targeting feature? Yes, yes it is. This…

“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…

More ZMOT!....Really?

ZMOT its everywhere seems like these days. With Google as the general session at Digital Dealer this year I thought I would talk about how we see the execution of ZMOT for dealers. Below are the slides from my presentation. I think these numbers will add up to a pattern if you look at the slides closely.

There is not ONE ZMOT in Automotive there are TWO

  • People spend as much time consuming online media as they do off

Future Auto World… what’a ya think?

An interesting report from comScore and I think some premonitions for retail automotive.

 

 

  1. Could FREE shipping break open real eCommerce for automotive? I think it is certainly a big hurdle right now logistically and monetarily. Taking away the monetary factor may go a long way toward opening this up. Of course there are still some logistics involved and there is the tactile factor. The need to touch and feel the vehicle is diminishing slowly…

TrueCar, KBB & Edmunds: an Objective View

TrueCar has certainly stirred up a hornet’s nest with “Know the REAL Price”. To be fair they are not the only online lead generator that uses dealership transactional data in an effort to get between the customer and the dealership and get a piece of the car sale either through a pay for lead or pay for sale pricing model.

Both KBB and Edmunds use transactional data also, the difference… their billing model doesn’t require them to dial into your system so it doesn’t appear that they…

The software would read the speed of connection of the end user and serve up the proper size video for smooth viewing. It took me 6 months to get my owner to send… Continue
