  • Don't Drive Social Media on Empty

    Build a Facebook Page, setup a Twitter account, create a YouTube channel, and make a LinkedIn profile. These (along with several other sites) are the things that businesses (small and large) are told they should do to start their social media marketing – and they do. Somewhere along the way though, companies missed the essence of social media.Read post

  • High Cost-Per-Click

    In the pay-per-click world, value is derived from how inexpensively a lead can be acquired.  Many times, a low cost-per-click combined with a high conversion rate can indicate a winning formula.  However, sometimes it can seem like a campaign is averaging a high cost-per-click.   There are many factors that affect this cost, but the two easiest to understand and control are competition and quality score. Competition refers to how many other advertisers in a similar industry are bidding on the same keywords.  If an advertiser is experiencing a high cost-per-click on a particular keyword, all other things being equal, it could be an issue of the keyword being very popular among local advertisers.  If a keyword search yields a ton of ads on the SERP (search engine results page), then it is obvious that there are many others bidding on the same terms, driving the cost up.  At this point, the advertiser should consider if it is worth it to pay the high cost-per-click.   If the ROI d...Read post

  • Your Dealership's Website: Improve, Add To, or Replace?

    It's great to be out of the website business. After a decade of working for dealership website providers, I now have the freedom to tell the story like it really is. There are certain truths about dealership websites that dealers need to know. The first important point is that almost all dealer websites are either underutilized or incapable of being utilized at a high level. Here on DrivingSales the readership is more aware of this than the general dealership body, but even the people reading this article now have a good chance of falling into this category. Most websites should be improved, added to, or replaced. Let's look at the three options, but first let's discuss why this is the case. Universal Problems Here is a brief list off the top of my head of problems that dealers face with their websites. Yours might not have all of these problems, but chances are very strong that you have at least some of these deficiencies. Boilerplate Content - There's very little a website co...Read post

  • Buyer Intent

    Often, dealerships wonder why ad agencies don't buy generic search terms related to their models.  Honda dealers want to know why they aren't showing up for one-word searches such as "Civic" or "used Honda".  The reason is actually quite simple: it all comes down to buyer intent. If an automotive dealer wants to buy one-word search terms, they should realize that they will be capturing visitors that may not be ready to make a purchase just yet.  In most cases, given a limited budget, a better solution is to avoid using these terms and instead focus on purchasing deep funnel long tail terms that signify clear buyer intent.  This is also known as Zero Moment retail. For example, someone looking for a car might search ‘used car’ in Google.  In this case, the shopper doesn’t know what he wants, other than that he wants to buy a used car.  At this point, he is most likely researching what is available rather than settling on a particular vehicle to purchase - he has what is ca...Read post
