w/ Heather MacKinnon, Vice President of National Accounts at DealerRater

FACT: 84% of Americans acknowledge that online evaluations have an influence on their decision to purchase a product or service.

An online reputation management strategy is no longer simply a “nice to have” for today’s successful dealerships – it’s a necessity!

New quantifiable data shows that dealerships’ online reviews and associated star ratings do, in fact, dramatically increase conversions, drive new vehicle sales and increase brand sales.

In this 1 hour webinar, Heather MacKinnon will share results from a recent groundbreaking DealerRater-Polk study that conclusively proves the direct correlation between dealership online star ratings and dealer vehicle sales. She will then present dealer case studies that explore the fundamentals of building and maintaining a successful online reputation. Finally, Heather will share proven strategies to garner more online reviews (both at the dealership and employee level) that will help you sell more cars across the Web and in the showroom.

If you are ready to boost your customer reviews as well as your bottom line, then this is one webinar you gotta see!
