Pokemon Go! and your dealership

First to understand how this game effect sales of any sort you must first play the game. In game you have to walk around catch Pokemon, claim gyms, and level up. Each time you catch a pokemon you get exp for leveling up. Now the only way to get people in is to ether have pokemon, a pokestop or an incentive to stop in and this is my answer.

So today i approached The owner of my dealership with the idea of implementing some type of reward for Pokemon go members to drive traffic. He was skeptical at first kind of laughed at the idea until my sales manager spoke up saying "they say this will be the #1 downloaded game in history" as to which the owner said. Lets try it.
 
Today is the first day implementing my ideas and it starts with the service center and Facebook. I made a flashy picture, and promoted oil change discounts, dollar amounts off linking with your level on Pokemon go(lvl 5 = $5 off, level 10=$10 off etc). And only put on Facebook, within the hour I had over 32 shares and 125 likes. now im not sure what you guys usually get for Facebook interaction but this has increased my Facebook page's traffic by astronomical results. More people are seeing my featured cars, more people are going to my website, and more people are stopping in. I have many more idea's im going to be implementing and would love to collab with anyone who has idea's like mine. As a millennial i feel its my job to target anyone around my age(23). Let me know what you think of this idea! (This also helps with the new lot we just opened )

Robert, that's awesome.

I'm also 23 and took it upon myeslf to write an article suggesting a few creative ideas for how dealers can use Pokémon Go to get more floor traffic (not a bad way to spend the work day). I assume your dealership is a Pokestop or is close to one? 

I definitely feel we need to capitalize on this trend while it's still burning hot. If you have any other ideas that you see success with, please drop them in that article - I'd love to include more!
