Game-Changing Websites For Dealerships
April 10, 2020
The whole world is increasingly online. But more importantly for RV dealers, the world of shopping and sales is shifting online. And that’s causing the whole recreation vehicle industry to sit up and take notice of the opportunities available when your business can truly dominate online.
Which brings us to...The Average RV Dealership’s Online Situation
RV dealers are often independent, adventurous, and savvy as heck. So a little bit of change in the wind isn’t likely to rattle you. But the problem is that even if you’re getting by perfectly fine and doing business - you’re still getting secretly penalized online. That’s because shopper’s expectations are set by their best experiences browsing the vast internet.
That means sites like Google, Amazon, and other major e-retailers are setting your shoppers’ expectations for a good experience. When your site utilizes and builds upon these familiar patterns,you reap the benefits of more engaged customers.
Buckle down - we’re about to share some of our best tech and hottest strategies. First, however, and most importantly, we tackle issues with this perspective: everyone interacting with the platform should have an excellent experience. And that means we’re bringing all the power of our online automotive marketing platform - from it’s most technical and tactical tools, to the sleek, sophisticated design we are known for.
First impressions matter. Particularly online.Which is why we employ gorgeous, mobile-first designs that encourage customer engagement. With mobile-first, every site is perfectly adapted in both form and function to whatever device size it happens to be on.It’s all about creating a perfect shopping experience for the user.
Speaking of the customer… we’ve also made it easier than ever to shop and save whatever vehicle they’re interested in. And with some clever coding, shoppers don’t even have to make an account to quickly save one of their favorites.
Notice a theme? Every tool we build is about making your site the best and easiest way for a customer to get what they want.
On that note, meet RealSearch® - our Google-quality automotive website search tool.
Our proprietary free-text search bar makes every spec and feature of every recreational vehicle available to search.Naturally, RealSearch® comes with spelling correction, auto-suggestion, and relevant results no matter the query.
The ultra-easy browsing continues with our neat and navigable filters. Each element is designed to shorten the click path to results. Chips (boxes like the ones shown) are easy to hit on mobile and touch devices and visually appealing on desktops - creating a clear connection between what the user has clicked and the results that they are shown.
We can tweak and tune filters to offer the perfect mix of filtering options to highlight what your shoppers are looking for - the right result.
Finally, To help them find exactly the right vehicle at exactly the right price, our unique vehicle pricing display automatically integrates all your deals and discounts - giving customers the most accurate possible price. Pricing flexibility also gives dealers the ability to price how they want and to highlight the parts of their price that are most important to shoppers, be it the discount, a sale price, or even the percentage of savings.
As they say in infomercials, but that’s not all. We also back up each of these tools (and all of the others) with powerful dealer-side functions, like Automatic Data Enhancement. That means instead of having to tediously plugin specs and data about each vehicle, we will automatically enhance that information. And on top of that, your site will automatically upload this info,which means you’ve suddenly got time to do a lot more selling.

Preparing For Change In The Digital Era
September 17, 2019
Businesses in our digital world, and Automotive is no exception, is an ever-changing landscape.
For example, AirBnB and Uber didn’t exist before 2008. Now, they’re two of the most recognisable and universally used brands in the world, but how did they get there? And can we learn from them?
Of course! Both of these companies leveraged the digital world to their advantage. Digital provides customers with access to new products, information and services that improve their lives.
A recent IBM survey of over 3,000 business leaders put technology at the top of the list of external factors shaping the future of companies. While it’s obvious that you are going to have to embrace digital, it’s important that you invest in the right technology and digital transformation for your industry.
The automotive industry is notoriously slow in terms of evolving and introducing new systems; however, consumer demand might force the hand of dealers and manufacturers, otherwise they risk being usurped by a disruptive start-up.
Changes Happening Now
Car buyers are more educated now than ever before thanks to a wealth of online and video reviews from professionals and amateurs, not to mention forums that will provide the answer to just about any question.
Despite all this information, people still want to visit a dealership to physically see the car they’re going to be investing a significant amount of their hard-earned money on. Completing a test drive remains an important step for a high percentage of drivers.
With that in mind, the challenge for dealers and manufacturers is to bridge the gap between a consumer’s online and offline experience to make it seamless. According to AutoTrader’s Car Buyers Report 2019, 65% of car buyers did as much research as possible before entering a dealership.
Part of this research might have involved contacting a dealership with some questions about a specific car or looking for some expert advice. The best dealerships will respond to every enquiry with accurate and impartial information as quickly as possible.
NOTE: Video messages are five times more engaging compared to text responses. Using video relationship management software like SnapCell to answer enquiries can help to make your dealership more memorable. READ MORE...
