Last week, we talked about why social media marketing is crucial for building your dealership’s online presence. Today, let’s dive into best practices and how our Certified Partner Miranda Pyette can help you generate sales through digital marketing.
Here are some tips so you can get the most out of social media:
- Show up and engage. Post regular, frequent content at optimal times.
- Post photos of people. Yes, showcase your inventory, but users will engage more frequently with “human-interest” content like selfies and videos.
- Engage directly with potential customers and your industry to raise your profile and build trust and open communication. We call this social selling.
- Monitor what users are saying about you, your company, your industry, and your competitors.
- Engage on the latest trends and issues in your industry to brand your authority
- Repost and share community content.
- Post polls and surveys to invite engagement.
