Kendall Billman will provide real-time analysis of attendee Websites and compare them with best practice sites that include examples from over 20 million visitors touching over 100 million pages that will allow a dealership to prove marketing ROI. The session will take place at the Innovative Dealer Summit on March 22, 2012.
The presentation, titled “Your Website Tells You Buyer Behaviors. Are You Listening?” describes existing technology that reveals valuable market advantages and solves the issue of lost leads with traffic to an automotive dealership’s Website. By learning what happens behind the scenes of a Website, dealership professionals are able to translate powerful insight to improve their sales and overall business strategy.
Kendall Billman said, “Website behavioral analysis, over a variety of data points, is the first and best way to gain a competitive advantage in an automotive dealership. This, combined with the power of a fully-integrated system and a solid Website and mobile Website platform, is the key to continued improvement and is more accessible than you may have ever imagined.”
The Innovative Dealer Summit has become the definitive management education forum for dealer principals and senior dealer managers and addresses the most pressing sales, profitability, technology, best practices, social media and other emerging issues in dealership operations today. The summit is held at the Colorado Convention Center on Wednesday, March 21, 2012 8:00 a.m .to 4:00 p.m. and Thursday, March 22, 2012 8:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Full schedule, and registration information may be found here: http://www.innovativedealersummit.com/.
