The Good Car Exhaust System For Amazing Performance

Drivers often ignore car exhaust when upgrading their automobile, although they perform an important role in the way a car drives. A good exhaust system is a great sound insulator and it also cleans the fumes coming out of the car engine.

How to Create Emotionally Appealing Inventory Videos

Posted by Gina Reuscher on May 19, 2016 at 5:07am 0 Comments

For dealerships that are considering video marketing, or in the early stages of developing their video marketing strategies, we recommend starting with inventory videos. Inventory videos are a great way to attract and emotionally engage car shoppers. According to a recent Gallup study, “businesses that optimize this (emotional) connection outperform competitors by 26% in gross margin and 85% in sales growth.”


Emotion sells because it happens on a very instinctive level. People may not be aware of why they're buying--they just know they feel good about it.


So how do you create emotionally appealing inventory videos? Visually, most inventory videos are pretty straightforward. Typically they're two to four minutes in length and show the interior and exterior of the vehicle. They…


How to Differentiate Your Dealership during the Recall Crisis

Posted by sara callahan on May 17, 2016 at 5:51am 2 Comments

Dealers are in for a wild ride. The next 5+ years will be filled with revenue from recall work; a shortage of technicians; shop capacity that can’t keep up with demand; parts availability issues; and, as a result, irate customers.


Recalls certainly challenge consumers’ patience and dealers can find themselves in a constant battle, fighting to put out fires, attempting to appease and retain customers.


A lack of parts availability for these recall repairs has already presented a huge challenge for many dealers. Customers are upset and there is sadly very little dealers can do to help. How do you handle a customer that has been informed that they will now have to drive an unsafe car for as long as 6 months before a part is available?


As it is such a huge issue,…


What Would Your Customers Do If There Weren’t Any More Discounts?

Posted by Mike Gorun on May 17, 2016 at 5:00am 0 Comments

Loyalty is a fickle thing.

While your customer has consistently serviced their vehicle with you, when they get that $19.95 oil change coupon from your competition, will it go in the trash, or will they choose to take advantage of it and defect to the competition?


Most consumers love sales and discounts.

In fact, the whole reason negotiation exists in showrooms is the perception of a “good deal,” which is completely subjective and varies from dealer to dealer, as well as customer to customer. A whole new sector of business has sprung up that offers consumers advice on what a good deal is. Then let’s look at Black Friday -- a cultural phenomenon where customers camp out for weeks to save $200 on a television. It’s surprising the…
