Car Sales Marketing

Selling cars in 2022 isn't just about selling the car to the customer on the forecourt anymore.

Its about capturing their attention online as well. 

Its about reviews, social media, reputation management and branding.

You need the visit to the forecourt in the first place before you can sell the car

but the competition for walk in trade is fierce.

Today you can't rely on passing trade alone 

The newspapers just don't work like they used too

And the competition is really tough 

Maybe its time you upped your game!
