7 Car Dealership Advertising Ideas Proven to Increase Car Sales

2017 car sales numbers may be strong so far in many markets around the US, but that doesn’t mean it’s hard to find an auto dealer struggling to attract a consistent stream of leads. For some, their customer generation problem stems from one source: a lack of fresh, unique, impactful car dealership advertising ideas. 

Vehicle consumers are spending more and more time researching their decisions on the internet before heading out to a car lot. They read reviews, ask for advice on social media, and compare specs and stats. 

It takes stellar marketing and advertisements — not just on traditional auto dealer advertising mediums like TV and radio — to establish the kind of brand identity and authority that will cut through all the noise consumers are exposed to when shopping for a car.

If your current car dealership marketing strategies aren’t cutting it, don’t fear. We’ve got a long list of ideas to get any car salesman or dealer back on the road to successful lead generation.
