Marketing to car parts and service shoppers is a challenge. They are quick to make decisions with a majority deciding within a week. They actively compare multiple brands with most researching two or more brands. And they prioritize convenience and immediacy. Moreover, dealer service shops compete not only with other dealers, but also local and national service shops. So when it comes to getting a shopper’s online attention for Fixed Ops, car dealers certainly have an uphill battle.
In this 1 hour webinar, we will review major behavior trends among fixed ops shoppers to understand how these customers make decisions and where they perform much of their research. Based on these findings, we will discuss how your dealership can develop an effective marketing strategy to generate more service appointments and parts orders online.
