As online advertising and e-commerce continues to grow, in-person dealership sales are becoming fewer and online leads are growing rapidly. But potential customers won’t always come to your dealership’s website – you have to make your inventory easily accessible in order to earn their business. There are many options when it comes to listing units online, but where is your investment worth it?
Third party search engines should be one of your most valuable assets for increased dealership sales. If a third party online portal can’t demonstrate its value to you, it’s likely that you are wasting time and money using their services. To combat this issue and show exactly what its services are worth, Boats & Cycles has launched a new back-end web analytics dashboard for customer access.
