The shortage of new and used vehicle inventory has dealerships deciding whether to keep their loaner fleet or take advantage of rising used car prices and sell them. However, selling your loaner fleet means having no alternative transportation options for customers getting their car serviced, which can lead to a poor customer experience and people putting off car repairs. Since fixed operations departments account for almost 40% of a dealership’s profit, offering customers a transportation option is critically important to boost revenue, create service retention, and drive customer satisfaction.
Join us for this live webinar where we’ll dive into how rideshare can ease the customer transportation burden and increase service revenue. Featuring the Chapman Auto Group, hear first-hand about how offering their customers on-demand Lyft rides enables them to:
- Attract new customers and increase customer loyalty
- Boost their CSI score and service revenue
- Differentiate from the competition
- Save the hassle of managing shuttles
- Have a failsafe alternative to loaner vehicles

Ever wonder if your website is visually hurting your sales leads? Or whether your website is hard to use and forcing users to look elsewhere?
Wikimotive Technical SEO Specialist and Web Designer Sam Harrington will identify common user experience problems on dealership websites. We will also look at solutions to attract and engage the visitors.
The average dealership pays $5 per click or more for traffic to their website. But over 95% of this traffic never engages with the dealer. Even for the people who *do* engage, following up is expensive and exhausting. It takes an average of 3 days and 9 phone calls to reach a prospect.
What if you could stop paying for clicks, and only pay when consumers open a dialogue with you?
During this free webinar you'll learn about a new gamification platform where car shoppers are rewarded for micro-behaviors they take. Shoppers are incentivized to take the next step down the path to purchase, which keeps them engaged and always connected to your inventory and your sales team.
Learn how you can:
- Get access to a customer's buying preferences and vehicle trade information before you engage with them
- Start an instant conversation with engaged shoppers -- no matter where they are online
- Set your own budget and only spend those dollars when consumers visit your showroom
Spam is increasingly affecting dealers on both incoming calls and outgoing calls. Not only are dealerships receiving a growing number of inbound spam calls which tie up their lines and add expense to their phone bills, they're also seeing their dealership's phone number flagged as "spam likely" when trying to contact customers and leads. Dealers rely on the phone; you can't ignore incoming calls and you can't stop calling your customers. So how can dealers win this ongoing battle against spam?
In this live webinar, we will uncover exactly what inbound and outbound spam are and why spam is on the rise, what measures are being taken by governing bodies to combat spam, and how your dealership can take immediate steps to prevent and reduce spam.

You’ll learn how you can make your data actionable through intelligence, and you’ll hear about how to most effectively deliver messaging to your customers through multiple channels.

The car shopping process is evolving, and consumer expectations are continuing to change. With the emergence of digital retailing, consumers are doing more shopping from home and getting closer to purchase before ever stepping foot in a dealership. Over the past year, COVID has made shoppers reluctant to visit dealerships resulting in less showroom traffic and accelerating the at-home shopping process. Now shoppers expect advertising and marketing efforts to complement their shopping experience, not disrupt it. Your advertising can no longer solely focus on driving showroom traffic but rather meet the consumer where they are in their shopping journey and throughout the vehicle ownership lifecycle.
Digital retailing solutions aren’t magic – they take more preparation than just signing an agreement with a vendor. This webinar will focus on 4 key areas for your store to focus on as you prepare, so you can achieve optimal conversion and achieve 25% or higher close rates.
Key takeaways from this webinar:
-How to know if you have complete management buy in
-Key elements of a quality digital retail solution
-How to “co-browse” and close the deal on the web or in the showroom
-Review marketing tactics that really work
