Is a PPC Service Really Worth 20%? The Math Doesn't Add Up.

I really don't know who I'm going to offend on this one. We've been researching so many vendors over the last couple of months that work with chat, lead-gen widgets, and website platforms themselves that we haven't taken the time to explore PPC vendors.

Gorgeous Photos versus Real Photos on Social Media Ads

Science rules in digital marketing.Social media is a place of vanity. Those of us who use social media often get to see flattering images of just about everything - people, places, food, cars, whatever.

I've gone through five chat providers so far. Three of them were fine and I won't mention them. The other two were both pretty darn outstanding, strangely for different reasons. It's going to be hard to pick one over the other but after interviewing some dealers I'll be able to pick one.If there are any other chat providers out there that want to throw their pitch in the hat, please let me know this week. If there are any dealers who want to recommend a provider, post them here and it will be…See More

A Tale of 6 Pictures: Social Media Mini Case Study (and contest!)

A good social media advertising campaign (or any marketing campaign at all, for that matter) should be guided by science. Testing, monitoring, adjusting, and testing again are the cornerstones of a good marketing strategy.Much of what we do in the car business comes with assumptions.

Recycling Social Media Content is Getting Out of Hand

I get it. I understand the need for more content to serve to an ever-growing flow of content consumers. The art of recycling content is important, particularly on sites like Twitter where a piece of content can and should be used multiple times in order to get the message out to everyone. It's a chronological feed, after…See More

Nobody is Using Twitter Ads? Really?

When a friend at another vendor told me yesterday that they hadn't had any of their dealers sign up for Twitter advertising, my jaw dropped. Well, not literally, but I was rather surprised. You see, Facebook ads are extremely powerful and can be used to really bump up your traffic and sales, but Twitter ads…See More

Automotive Marketers versus Marketing Automotive People
