It’s been awhile since we’ve had a weekly refresh. So let’s get started!
- New Study: Decrease Days in Stock for Pre-Owned Units by Nearly One-ThirdHomenet performed a
solid study showing dealers that had great multiple photos, comments and pricing for their pre-owned vehicles could move their inventory nearly a third faster.
- A another new study by
The Nielsens Company summarizing the amount of activity, including video viewing, which occurs on a monthly basis by the average user over television, Internet and mobile phones.
“Watching video on the Internet is no longer a novelty; nearly 119 million unique viewers viewed 7.5 billion video streams in May 2008. The average viewer spent 2 hours and 19 minutes in May streaming video online.”
- Some very basic SEO knowledge for for your dealer
website! The one and only Matt Cutts.
- As I commute to work, the Amber alerts are rarely but sometimes warning drivers of a possible missing child. The other morning I was thinking how great it would be if one could subscribe to a text messaging service that would alert you when a child was missing in your area. Well, low and behold..there is!The national Wireless AMBER Alerts Initiative is a voluntary partnership between the wireless industry, the United States Department of Justice, and the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC), to distribute AMBER Alerts to wireless subscribers who opt in to receive the messages and are able to receive text messages on their wireless devices.I encourage all DR readers to sign up for Wireless amber alerts.
That’s it for this week.
