Edmunds, a US-based car information site, has started Premier their very own auto dealer marketing program to help consumers who are preparing to buy a car to dealership websites.
Using targeted advertising and audience data, Premier, which presents both new and used inventory on Edmunds and across partner sites, will be able to help shoppers easily find what they are looking for by connecting them to the appropriate dealer.
“With Premier, we recognize that the road to buying a new car is more often a winding journey, not a straight path,” said Nick Gorton, Vice President of Product Innovation at Edmunds. “From initial research on Edmunds to scrolling through social media sites, shoppers move around frequently when looking for their next new car, but Premier is designed to keep a vehicle in front of a shopper whenever and wherever they are on this path and then deliver them to a dealer knowledgeable, confident and ready to purchase.”
Dealers who will sign up for Premier will benefit from the said marketing program by having access to shoppers via web chat, text and Facebook Messenger on a single platform.
