Dealership Websites

Pay attention to your internal link structure

In this week’s Wednesday Workshop, we’re talking about your internal links – the links from page to page within your own dealership website. Much like inbound links from other sites, internal links pass value from page to page, so it’s important that you structure your links correctly. Watch and learn how most dealers get things wrong, why it’s important to get things right, and how to make sure you’re linking correctly within your site.

Always test everything!


For this week’s Wednesday Workshop (the first of 2018), we share what might be the most important tip we’ve ever shared: Don’t listen to us!

That’s right, we’re telling you not to believe everything we say, or what you hear at conferences, or read on websites. Sure, it’s likely that the tips you’ll hear about will help your dealership, but the best thing you can do is test EVERYTHING you hear. See how things work for your dealership. Every dealership is different, so there’s no guarantee that something that works for someone else will work for you.

Feature Friday: Geo-fencing


Happy Friday! I’m excited to announce a new series we’ll be rolling out today: Feature Friday Videos!

In these videos, we’ll be showing off some of DealerOn’s top-performing, results-driven features. They’ll give you a more in-depth look at the tools that make us tick. Our goal is to help you better understand some of the features of DealerOn websites that can make your dealership stand out from the competitors.

This week we’ll take a look at Geo-fencing, a feature that allows you to strategically target potential customers based on their location. Geo-fencing creates opportunities for your dealership to target specific audiences for location-based campaigns, like if you wanted to show social media ads to people in your competitor’s showroom, or if you were trying to reach students on campus about your student discount.


When you’re walking down the street and you pass a shop you might hear, “Come in for the best t-shirts in the city,” or “For you, $5 off your entree.”  Pointed messages, directed at you — and they’re enticing because you’re right in front of the store. This is real life geo-fencing.

In this digital age, successful marketing is all about sending the right message to the right person at the right time. Geo-fencing is the technology that makes this possible. By simply selecting an area on a map, your dealership can choose where to run its ads and special promotions.

Think about it. Rather than a blanket message all over town, you can strategically target your customers.  Maybe you want to remind people leaving the big game on Sunday about your dealership’s great leasing program.  Boom, geo-fencing gives you that opportunity.  Maybe customers at your competitor’s lot will be interested in your bigger rebate offers.  Let college students at a nearby university know they can use their student ID for a discounted oil change.

With geo-fencing technology and DealerOn’s innovative geniuses, your dealership is closer than ever to closing sales.

Remember, over 50% of all auto shoppers checked their phone for better prices on the dealership lot, which means YOU have the chance to make your dealership shine.

That’s it for today’s Feature Friday. Tune in next week for more tips & tricks guaranteed to rock your dealership.
