Lower Your Marketing Cost

As dealers and managers struggle to offset the reduction in gross profit, marketing costs have come under intense scrutiny. For many dealerships, reducing the customer acquisition cost is a smart way forward to improving margins. Unfortunately, the cost of one of the most popular marketing tools available to dealerships continue to rise.

Surges in search engine marketing costs, especially in Google, are burning holes in dealerships budgets. Pay per click (PPC) advertising has become standard for most dealers and often consumes a large part of a dealership’s advertising expense.

It varies by market, but dealers in metro markets are paying over $10 per click for keywords like “Chevy Equinox” and “Ford Explorer”. Their “average” cost per click (CPC) is lower because PPC companies offset the high click costs by buying the dealership name and less expensive keywords like the OEM brand and city of the dealership. Inventory keywords continue to increase because there are so many companies bidding for your customer. Try searching “cars for sale” and you find companies like Autotrader.com, Cars.com, CarGurus.com and others in your market bidding up the keywords. It’s no wonder that I recently saw a Ford dealer pay $17.65 a click for the “Ford Escape” keyword (which had a 100% bounce rate).

Why do dealerships leverage pay per click advertising? Because they believe they are reaching the people they need to reach and when they want to reach them.

What if dealers can reach those same people for a third of the cost? Wouldn’t that be savvy?

Using good judgement, practical knowledge of your options and most importantly data when managing your advertising budget is important to get optimal results.
It’s no secret that good operators are leveraging CarClicks Inventory Marketing Products to get lower their advertising costs while increasing the number of auto shoppers to their website.
