The vast majority of in-market vehicle shoppers are doing their shopping online. While years back prospective car buyers were content to see basic inventory listings and submit a lead to find out more, recent studies have shown that prospective buyers are making their purchasing decisions online, often before they step foot in the dealership door.
NADA’s findings that car shoppers now make 1.3 visits before buying a car or truck, as opposed to 4.5 visits ten years ago, show this to be true. Recent studies by Google find that 95% of vehicle shoppers use digital channels to do their research and 72% cross-shop and compare brands as part of this research.
The fact is that in-market vehicle shoppers are researching and completing more and more of their buying decision online. Providing them with high-quality tools and data to support their research is key in capturing their interest and converting site visitors to leads and sales.
