Google identifies 19 digital research touchpoints for auto purchasers. With ShopMyWay, dealer groups can instead make theirs the only one.
Norfolk, VA (PRWEB) March 01, 2016
Dominion Dealer Solutions, provider of industry-leading automotive responsive websites, has introduced ShopMyWay for automotive retail dealerships nationwide. ShopMyWay is a suite of shopping tools designed to enable the car buyer to control the shopping and research processes. It allows consumers to not only search a dealer group’s entire inventory based on specific features or preferences, but also compare those vehicles side by side. Additionally, online car shoppers can view the value of a current trade and ascertain which vehicles can be purchased based on prequalified credit.
Dealer groups have searched for a way to maximize their businesses’ entire inventory online, facilitating online shopping and directing traffic to their own websites. Dealers also need an environment where they can provide information to high or mid-funnel shoppers, empowering them to shop for vehicles based on their own needs. ShopMyWay captures these high and mid-funnel shoppers and creates engagement opportunities with them. These shoppers typically search 3rd-party or OEM websites for the same information that ShopMyWay now lets them view right on the dealership’s website. With ShopMyWay, dealers can further connect with these shoppers without redirecting them to an automotive portal or manufacturer website.
“This is a first of its kind solution that allows a dealer group to provide consumers with the automotive shopping experience they always wanted," noted Nicole Case, general manager for Dominion Dealer Solutions.
ShopMyWay provides an end-to-end, consumer-driven shopping experience. The sites are easy to use for vehicle, trade and payment-oriented automotive shoppers. Consumers can search the entire dealer group’s inventory by payment preference and look at detailed, side-by-side vehicle comparisons. Without consumers having to leave the dealer group website, the full-service trade valuation tool lets them pre-qualify for credit and payments so dealerships can efficiently follow up. In addition to providing a singular digital resource for car buyers conducting research on a dealer group website, ShopMyWay reduces the dependence and money spent on 3rd-party automotive sites while driving high-quality appointments directly to the dealership. Instead of the dealer group website acting as a directory, ShopMyWay makes the site a destination for consumers, using the same science-driven responsive website design behind Dominion’s websites.
Sean Stansell, product manager for Dominion Websites, added, “Google identifies 19 digital research touchpoints for auto purchasers. With ShopMyWay, dealer groups can instead make theirs the only one. They can eliminate 3rd-party distractions and establish that direct shopping relationship with the consumer.”
