Hottest New Models

The hottest new models in the automotive space aren’t relegated to cars anymore. Cars are key, but statistical models are catching favor and acclaim. Rightfully so. The Houston Auto Show recently debuted the 2019 Aston Martin DBS Superleggera TAG Heuer Edition at their Havana Nights Charity Preview Night.

Knock-Knock—It’s Amazon

Google and Facebook, Watch Out! There’s someone approaching in the rear-view mirror, and it’s Amazon. Don’t worry about Amazon pursuing automotive retail--think expensive land and expensive cattle (aka cars). As far as the desire to pursue automotive advertising--think cloud ready and margin friendly. The duopoly of Google and Facebook will fast become a triopoly as…See More

Fog Machine: Digital Retailing

San Francisco is famous for fog. The city’s given a nickname to its fog - Karl. Karl the fog even has an Instagram account with 243k followers. As I traveled back from the NADA Show 2019 held in San Francisco, I’m reminded that our industry resides in a fog of Digital Retailing. I met with many capable and reputable…See More

Common Currency

The concept of common currency is such a great idea. Except that for the most part, people want their own currencies. Dealership employees want their own pay plans. 180 currencies are used in 195 countries across the world.

Two different things. Local Search Group’s values do much more than establish the monetary worth of something.

Impression Share Bidding

Of all the recent changes made by Google, Impression Share bidding is one of my favorites. And its importance can’t be understated. Especially so if you believe in the common currency of CPM’s (cost per thousand impressions). Sure, Google’s helped us bid on time of day, type of device and geography for the longest. All of this tells us where someone is in the moments that…See More

Many dealers ask what would happen if I didn’t buy my name. Or better yet what would happen if I didn’t spend any advertising money or, more often than not, what if I…

Rethinking Possible – Super Bowl Ads

Posted on February 4, 2019 at 9:56am 0 Comments

$5 million for a Super Bowl spot in 2019. That’s what the big brands are paying for huge visibility. There is arguably no better way to reach 100+ million people.
