How To: Location Targeting for your Dealership

Reach the Right Customer, In the Right Place, at the Right Time

Dealers can now target mobile shoppers based on their location. AutoMotion TV’s new Location Targeting feature allows dealers to identify up to 5 physical locations in their area; they can put a tracker on these locations which can then be used to  target mobile shoppers. When a mobile shopper visits one of these locations, a special offer from the dealership is automatically sent to the customer’s phone.

Dealers are able to send a targeted message to mobile shoppers when they’re in the shopping process. The technology can identify when a potential customer is visiting a competing dealership or obtaining a service quote from a competing service center. The system automatically delivers a coupon or offer to that customer’s phone, incentivizing a visit back to the dealership.
