Unless you were trapped under a full-size SUV in 2013, you’ve heard by now that your vehicle detail pages play a critical role along a customer’s path to purchase. But your VDPs can’t do it alone. They have a trusted inventory-merchandising sidekick— your Vehicle Search Results pages. Here are 3 tips to help you drive shopper engagement with your VSRs.
Why do so many dealerships still use stock photos for their new vehicle inventories? Is it as important to show actual vehicle photos for shoppers looking for new?

Real in-market car shoppers revealed to us what they’re looking for when they browse your vehicle search results pages and vehicle detail pages. Performance Improvement Consultant Rob Campbell shares some of the surprising results from our exclusive 2014 Inventory Shopping Experience Study.
When a customer first walks into your store and asks to see what vehicles you have on the lot, what’s the first thing you do? Ask them if they need financing? Or if they know how great you are?

These are just a few of the ways to optimize your Vehicle Search Results and Vehicle Detail Pages to drive more shopper engagement on your site. Want more?
