8 Resources To Jumpstart Your Dealership’s 2021 Sales Strategy

Digital Marketing, Social Media

With the beginning of every new year, there is a renewed sense of hope that everyone feels. This will be my year. 

After 2020, that feeling is stronger than ever.

But we can’t hope our way to a better year. Hopes and dreams need goals and plans.  

To help jumpstart 2021 and ensure you’re on track to reach your sales goals, here are some free resources to help:

1. Secure more top model line inventory

If your desirable inventory is lacking, get the message out to top model line owners that your dealership is looking for trade-ins or will outright purchase their vehicles. Check out our Buy Back Playbook here to see some ads that your dealership can use to stock back up on some much needed inventory! 

2. See what’s working for other dealerships right now

Whether you’re looking to get into better conversions, get better leads, or increase unit sales, we have dealers who have done it already using Facebook and Instagram. Check out their success stories and take a peek at their strategies. You can view them here!

3. Give On-Facebook Destination for AIA a try

On-FB Automotive Inventory Ads are getting dealership’s live inventory in front of in-market shoppers without the distraction of running them off Facebook. Testing is complete and results are in – it works. Check out more info about OFB-AIA here.
