Trips to the dealership are not high on the average American’s list at present. People are beginning to view buying a new car as a luxury that can be put off. Here is a perfect opportunity to show potential customers how painless a purchase might actually be. The beauty of online advertising is that you can advertise immediately to people who are looking for a car – as they’re looking. Now, when fewer consumers are looking, find new and creative ways to meet them where they’re at. Create search engine marketing campaigns around popular searches that may not have a lot to do with buying a new car. If someone is online looking for ways to save gas or find public transportation, hit them with an ad that comments on those concerns. Mention that the cars on your lot all get at least 25 miles per gallon. Point out that particular specials at your dealership will keep consumers off of a crowded bus and still within their budget. A little strategy can go a long way. Using a consumer perspective may well be the key to staying busy in a slow spell.
