As summer chugs along, new car sales don’t look so hot.
According to the Wall Street Journal, US sales for the top three manufacturers slumped in July, indicating a six-year sales boom may be ebbing. Fleet and government sales remain strong, while overall retail sales is the trouble spot.
Clearly, it’s more important than ever for automotive marketers to focus on reducing waste, and boosting results. More and more dealers are seeing that VIN-specific strategies are the most effective way to do both. If you’re not VINvertising™ yet, now is the time to start.
“Dealers know they need to hit the gas to keep up. They’re looking for less waste and better results.” – Len Short, LotLinx Founder
