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.

Importance of Effective Marketing During Uncertain Times
Sponsored by Elead
Date: May 05, 2021

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.

How to Reach Your Service Absorption Goals and Increase Profitability in a Few Easy Steps
Sponsored by OptionSoft
Date: October 06, 2020

Every dealership in North America strives to maintain service absorption rates of 85% or higher — yet only a handful of dealers hit the 3-digit level of absorption percentage.

A dealer’s performance and service employees compensation are largely measured by your service absorption rate; however, the average dealer fails to reach 60%. In fact, according to NADA, the average dealer hasn’t averaged over 60% service absorption in over a decade!

The solution is simple, right?
•    Sell more cars
•    Write more repair orders
•    Sell more service
•    Add more service bays
•    Hire more technicians
That all takes time, money, real estate — and good luck finding techs to hire.

This webinar will provide solutions for you to reach your service absorption goals while increasing profitability, CSI & customer retention in a few easy steps that do not require all the heavy lifting the industry experts tell us is necessary. It’s time to look at this consistent issue from another perspective and become one of the dealers who reaches the OEM benchmarks and your leadership’s goals.
