  11. The Difference Design Makes
  12. Content Content Should be Thought of both independently and as a subset of SEO A good Content Strategy thinks through not only what the Search Engines want, but what the visitor wants and needs to move toward completing your goals.
  13. Content Let your dealership’s personality shine through Make it easy for them to contact you via traditional methods on every page of the site Pictures of your lot, people, shop, etc. are good – they give potential clients confidence that you are a real, legitimate business Regularly post info about events, specials, new products, etc. This helps keeps your site fresh for both visitors and the search engines
  14. Content Use a Content Management System (CMS) Makes it easy for staff to make quick changes without incurring expense “Live” Content / Social Media – a Necessary Evil Search Engines like sites with fresh content Facebook and twitter are great for business if used correctly
  15. Content Social Media FaceBook, Twitter, etc. Becoming more powerful and important in driving sales Good, valuable posts can be shared and widen your contact base
  16. Content Live Content / Social Media Content Ideas New or Special Inventory Events you host/attend/sponsor New Products / Services New Deliveries with testimonials Blogs How to / Technical articles Buying Guides Industry Issues
  17. Inventory Probably the most important section of a Dealer’s website Adds content for search engines and gives visitors the info they want Consider a “Showroom” section that shows what you can get and an “Inventory” section that shows what you actually have
  18. Inventory Partner with a web provider that can provide you with a tool to easily manage your inventory and get it to all of the places you want it Write clear, unique descriptions for everything – Don’t just copy the manufacturers description Display lots of pictures – the more valuable the unit, the more pictures you need to post
  19. Inventory - Pictures Take Quality Pictures Avoid Background Distractions Get Good Lighting Show all Angles Show Interior Show Damage Have a thumbnail and a large image (1024x768)
  20. Inventory Consider adding video if available – if gives you the ability to sell the unit with audio and images Post prices!!!
  21. Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Who Do You Want to Target? Lookers vs. Buyers Brand Specific vs. Type Specific Where Do You Want to Target Local vs. Regional or National The lower the units value, the less likely buyers will be willing to travel a long distance to purchase Your local market will nearly always be your easiest sale, so make sure that you do a good job of targeting locally
  22. MarketingInventory Distribution Free Listings Craig’s List Oodle, Vast, etc. More like SEO since it is hard to control listing or track results, but a valuable and cheap way to get your name and products out there Paid Classifieds Local Market Classifieds Industry Specific Classifieds Trailer Shopper Horse Trailer Trader Equine.com Racing Junk Trailers USA Horse Trailers USA
  23. Marketing The wider the distribution of your inventory, the better: More inbound links to your website builds credibility and SEO ranking of your site Every site builds a slightly different audience – you want your inventory where your buyers are Different sites do well on different “long tail” searches.
  24. Marketing Make sure that your web address is on all of your traditional marketing as well
  25. Customer Service Treat your online customers as well or better than your traditional customers Dedicate 1 or 2 people to handle all Internet leads Define and monitor response times – hold your staff accountable Have contingency plans for sickness or vacation
