Nearly 30 percent of digital marketing leads are generated from a dealership’s website. So it’s important that your website has all the right features to help make your brand stand out. In a nutshell, a successful dealership website needs a modern design that follows digital marketing best practices, easy access to inventory, and the latest tools so users can find exactly what they’re looking for. It’s also important that your website is personalized and friendly –just like your dealership’s showroom! Essentials for your website include mobile optimization. Ask yourself if your website is adaptable for use on tablets and phones?
Many website platforms offer responsive web design, where the site resizes itself according to screen size, so it looks great on any device.
