Improve Your Website Conversions For Increased Sales

Website conversions has become a key topic for businesses. Competition is continually on the rise, and at a faster pace than ever. Converting website visitors to leads or sales has increasingly become a problem for many companies. Businesses are spending a lot of energy on search engine optimization (SEO), website marketability, and other inbound marketing strategies in order to drive more free traffic to their website. Consider website conversions are a part of your strategy. Do you want to drive more traffic, or convert the organic traffic your website is already receiving from Google? Trying to gain more traffic is far more costly than making changes to your website to achieve the desired results. By using the results in Google Analytics and Google Search Console, it is possible to affect website conversion changes. It is not a matter of reporting or analysis. Instead, you can examine and interpret multiple data points to see what patterns and trends emerge. Ask yourself these basic questions: How much traffic am I getting to my website? How much of this traffic is free, paid, or from referral websites? What is my bounce rate for the website vs. from individual sources? What does the traffic [...]

Proven Ways To Increase Your Website Conversion

Let’s face it. Competition has been continually on the rise and at a fast pace. Converting website visitors to leads or sales has increasingly become a problem for many businesses. Businesses are spending a lot of energy on search engine optimization (SEO), website marketability and other inbound marketing strategies in order to drive more free traffic to their website.

Dealerships Have Excellent Ways To Drive Customers To Their Store

Auto dealerships continue to struggle to attract local consumers to their stores with the increase in marketing channel competition. The problems range from other brand competition to competition from within the brand. Other sources include in-brand marketing channels from Tier 1, Tier 2 and Tier 3. This doesn’t mean dealerships cannot find marketing channels to drive consistent leads to their stores. As digital marketing continually changes, it is about being flexible by making changes to existing marketing plans and take advantage of the newer tools. Alternatively, revise how an existing marketing channel is being used. Consumer Car Buying Habits Informed consumers are, of course, an additional dilemma for dealerships. Local consumers spend more time researching brands, models, vehicle reviews on the Internet before they become a showroom walk-in. The consumers read vehicle reviews, ask for advice on social media from friends and family, and compare vehicle specifications. Showroom walk-ins have become a problem in terms of marketing channel attribution. These informed consumers do not call, make an appointment, complete an online form or send an email. They just walk-in! Autotrader’s 2016 consumer car buying journey is a clear sign of how shopping for cars has changed over the decades. Cox [...]

SmartOne for Auto Dealership Marketing To Local Consumers

Auto Dealership Marketing to local consumers has changed over the years. The marketing process is primarily in the digital marketing channels and the competition around these channels is high. Tier 1, Tier 2 and Tier 3 are all competing in the same marketing channels making the process difficult for any one individual dealership. What if there is another way of reaching targeted consumers? If you think you’ve tried something like SmartOne for auto dealership marketing before you’d be wrong. SmartOne differs because it is entirely managed by a digital marketing agency and not just a technology provider. Digital agencies manage the strategy, processes and analyze results. Technology companies only focus on services and tasks, something they are very good at executing. The difference is like hiring your printer to be your ad agency four decades ago. What Is SmartOne? Let's summarize the SmartOne program. SmartOne is an advanced auto dealership marketing using digital local marketing with proven results increasing a dealership’s awareness among targeted local consumers who have not done business with the dealership before.

Powerful Social Media Marketing Nurturing Gets You More Results

A noticeable change in social media marketing is the overuse of automation tools like Hootsuite or SocialOoomph. Businesses have turned social media automation into something that seems to resemble broadcast radio. Posting large volumes of tweets and updates happen fast with automation tools. Now imagine every business, regardless of their industry, doing the exact same thing. Automated postings have inundated social communities to a point that no one is listening anymore. Unfortunately, businesses have overused social media automation tools to be the end of their marketing efforts. They are seeking efficient (not necessarily effective) ways of getting their message out, in a fast manner, and do so at a low cost. Low cost to these businesses includes low to no labor. Of course, these quick tactics are not effective and do more harm than good. The question we have to ask ourselves is how effective is broadcasting your message in bulk? How effective is it to wait for people to come to you? With every business broadcasting to the social communities, how likely is it for someone to listen on the other end? It is more likely people have become numb to the broadcasts and do not even recognize there [...]
