Our data is important for automotive industry participants because it can be used for benchmarking as well as discovery.
Cleveland, Ohio (PRWEB) May 16, 2012
Numerous industries are successfully leveraging marketing technology and new communication channels like social media to build their brands. Companies within these industries understand how to implement Internet marketing programs that build and grow relationships with existing and potential customers. They understand that tools like social media are not for the “hard sell”. Consumers today do not want to be “sold”. They want to connect with brands. Once a consumer connects with a brand and develops a positive opinion about that brand, a relationship develops. That relationship may lead to a sale at some point in the consumer’s buying cycle.
Mongoose Metrics, an enterprise-level phone conversion optimization company and leading call tracking solutions provider, will be presenting today from the 3rd annual Automotive Marketing Bootcamp in Las Vegas, NV. Jeff Tirey, Mongoose Metrics’ CMO and Founding Partner, will present The State of Automotive Internet Marketing. Tirey’s presentation addresses some of the challenges that automotive dealers face today in connecting with consumers via social media. His goal is to help these automotive marketers better understand and leverage social media best practices as part of their overall Internet marketing mix.
Tirey analyzed approximately 17,700 automotive dealer websites in the United States and utilized each websites’ source code to gain an understanding of what types of marketing technologies such as web analytics, chat, CRM and ad retargeting were being used. With the growing importance of social media, he also analyzed each of the 17.7K auto dealers’ social profiles and details regarding their activity levels.
Tirey explains, “By integrating the social data with the auto dealers’ profiles, we were able to develop a more clear picture of automotive internet marketing today. Our data is important for automotive industry participants because it can be used for benchmarking as well as discovery.”
The research shows that of those auto dealers using web analytics, the majority use Google. In terms of social media marketing, Facebook is the most widely used social media platform for auto dealers with 38% having a Facebook presence.
The entire automotive research summary will be made available to the public as part of the Mongoose Metrics 2012 Data Series following the presentation on the Mongoose Metrics website.
