VDP "Saves":Pricing Bucket

Sam Salem

Anyone have a way (or thoughts on how)  to correlate the amount of VDP views/saves a unit's receives (within a week); to how you adjust advertised price .  Right now I use a bucket strategy that looks roughly like:  

(MDS/work days in a week)/(Price Variation*100% of retail)

You would want to quantify and juxtapose a few scenarios to find a baseline where that methodology would even be justified for pricing adjustments, IMO. Try tiny, more frequent price drops. Less is more.

great idea

MDS only really works as long as specific vehicle demand stays the same in the market.

Martins Ville, 

Absolutely, not a true science, you are absolutely correct; however, it can be used in culmination with other factors to expedite the decision making the process.  A few days saved here and there will start to add up from an opportunity cost standpoint.

It would also be nice if vauto could automate price drops.
