Digital Dealer: The Evolution of Automotive Digital Marketing – Where Do Dealers Go From Here?

The Evolution of Automotive Digital Marketing – Where Do Dealers Go From Here?

A brief overview of the last 10 years, where the ‘State of the Art’ for car dealers stands today, and where the most successful dealers will get their competitive advantage tomorrow…

Ralph Paglia will share insights gained from 20 years of designing, implementing and managing digital marketing strategies and tactics for car dealers. He will provide an overview of lessons learned that allude to critical mistakes being made by many dealers today. He will review dealer best practices specific to selecting software tools, deciding what should be managed in-house versus what and when it is better to outsource. He will provide attendees with access to multiple online tools, reporting and tracking systems, as well as multiple free and low cost resources that they can begin using before they return to their dealerships from Orlando. Attendees will learn how to apply tracking systems to Key Performance Indicator (KPI) measurement points that make managing a dealer’s digital marketing strategy easier and simpler for dealers and general managers. You will also learn how to use these same KPI measurement and reporting techniques to make recommended budget allocation changes that will help your dealership realize a stronger ROI from your total marketing investment each month. Each attendee will be provided with access to download a proprietary Excel spreadsheet file that they can use to make media allocation recommendations based on Paglia’s unique “Budget Cascade” automated calculations derived from minimum budget requirements and maximum effectiveness peaks within each digital and offline channel.

What action items will attendees take back to the dealerships?
1. Create a Google Adwords account for the dealership
2. Download and complete the Digital Dealer Self-Assessment document
3. Download and apply the Digital Marketing Budget Optimizer tool
