Going the extra mile for you.

ppc2

A successful PPC campaign is not for the faint at heart. It should be managed and executed by someone who has experience and knowledge. The best campaigns are assisted by some sort of technology that applies science to the art of pay-per-click.

The preliminary stages include determining who your hyper-target market is, where they are located and what time do they research and buy. This stage [...]

How to “Win the Click”

In today’s automotive digital arena, “winning the click” is where the money’s at.


Let’s face it – if you want sell cars you have to get people to click through to look at what you have to offer.  We’ve all seen the studies that show 63-69% (depending what study you read) of customers’ first contact with a dealership is when they walk in the showroom.  The big question that most dealers are asking is: “What can I do to strengthen my odds that they are going to come see me?”

Don’t Miss Your Potential! Time is running out!

Time…. It’s a liability or an asset depending on how you use it. It’s dynamic and feels like it’s moving at warp speed one minute and at a crawl during others.

We all get the same 86,400 seconds each day, except May 31, when we got 86,401.

The earth’s rotation around the sun gradually slowed this week and granted us what scientists are calling a “leap second.” In other words, you had an extra second on Tuesday. How did you use it? If you blinked, you missed it.

Don’t blink, you’ll miss a lot of things. Visualize what your potential could be if you had more time to focus on sales. That’s what we offer. We do all the marketing heavy lifting so you can take advantage of those extra seconds we are granted.
