Professional Community for Car Dealers, Marketing, Advertising and Sales Leaders
Piscataway, NJ, March 28, 2011 –DealerApp Vantage, a software development company that leads the industry in mobile application (apps) design and development for auto dealers, announced today that company Executive Director Ed Louis will speak at the 2011 NADA IT Committee Meeting, March 29, 2011, in McLean, VA. Louis’ presentation will highlight one of the most powerful marketing breakthroughs of modern technology; marketing tools for smart phones.
“Mobile marketing took off like a rocket in 2010. Now that Verizon is offering the iPhone, and with the quality of available consumer devices today such as the Droid and Blackberry, we believe that it will continue to be an important and exciting marketing platform in 2011 and beyond,” commented Louis. “Today, where most ‘ordering’ is done online, this technology is vital for any auto dealer that wants to stay competitive,” Louis added.
According to recent numbers posted on the Social Brand Value blog, already 25% of the phones in the world are smart phones. And by 2014, there will be more smart phones used on the internet than desk top computers. Louis’ presentation will address why auto dealers should care about smartphones and what they can do to incorporate this new technology into their marketing mix and enjoy immediate ROI.
