FREE Internet Marketing Checklist

AutoRevo's FREE Internet Marketing ChecklistOther vendors think we're crazy for giving this info away for free... but we think it's basic information that every dealer should know.

The US auto dealer market is fiercely competitive... so we've put this checklist together to help your dealership succeed! Our free Internet Marketing Checklist is full of tips and action items that you can use to help make yourself a better digital marketer. It's clearly written and easy to follow, so you can implement the tips without having to spend a ton of time on them. It's broken up into several sections, so you can implement the different sections as time allows.

Here's what's inside:

  • On-page Search Engine Optimization (SEO) for your dealer website - We'll walk you through several elements that you can update yourself (without relying on your provider to make the changes) that can have a positive effect on your rankings in the search engines.
  • Mobile Dealer Website - 88% of US mobile phone users are more likely to buy from a dealer who has a mobile website. We'll walk you through the 7 important factors that your mobile website MUST have to be competitive in the mobile website arena.
  • Local Search - Local results are becoming increasingly important in the search engine results pages. We'll show you how to claim your Google Places listing and then optimize it so your listing will perform better than your competitors down the street.
  • Website Video - Video has become vital for auto dealer websites. We'll show you how to take advantage of video if you're not using it, and how to get an extra boost from video if you've already got it on your site.
  • Social Media - We give you a checklist that shows how to use Facebook and Twitter correctly (most dealers are doing it wrong), and we'll show you how to take advantage of the growing power of Foursquare. We also provide tips on how to track your various social media properties with one easy-to-use free application.
  • QR Codes - We'll walk you through the steps for creating trackable QR codes that you can use to digitize all non-digital media. Now, you'll be able to track actual conversions from newspaper ads and any other print media your dealership uses.
  • Reporting and Pricing - Amazingly enough, there are still a ton of dealers out there who are using "gut feelings" to price their vehicles or to figure out what to buy at auction. We show you how to use pricing tools to pick what really works for your dealership, and how to stay on top of your prices using reports and analytics so you'll turn vehicles faster, for higher profits.

Even if you think you're ahead of the game and your dealership's Internet marketing efforts are blowing your competition away, you should download the checklist - you'll be sure to find a few tips you didn't know about.
