Google is changing fast, in fact so fast it is impossible for dealers to keep up and stay on the cutting edge of what’s working now, and make changes.
AutoNet Media is a team of Google My Business – Maps experts focused on guiding dealers and digital agencies into the Google Zero Click – Local Mobile Search era.
AutoNet Media Founder and Google My Business Expert – Jeffrey Taylor
Back in 1996, AutoNet Media GMB team leader, Jeffrey Taylor had a vision that car shoppers would rather view cars online first before hitting the road.
With that vision he founded Arizona AutoNet, the FIRST online classifieds featuring vehicle photos. Nope, it wasn’t AutoTrader!
Online classifieds with photos caught fire as dealers began to realize they cannot ignore the Internet and in 1999, we went national becoming AutoNetUSA.
Funny, back then, we had to fax leads to our member dealers because no one had an email address, let alone a website.
“A lot has changed since the early days of Car dealer Internet marketing, but one thing remains constant, the car dealers that look forward and stay on the cutting edge, will always be the leaders when it comes to marketing online.” Just like back in the late 90’s, some dealers will move ahead, while many others will sit, wait, and see.”
We are are once again in front of the next major shift in consumer behavior, and it is being driven by Google
This major shift in consumer behavior being driven by Google is affecting how buyers find and engage with local businesses when searching on Google. Driven by the massive growth of mobile searches, Google has reshaped the local search results placing PPC ads and Google My Business – Maps listings in the most prominent positions.
“The biggest change since 1996 with the car dealers is in the training. Back then, we were focused on teaching them basic internet communication skills. Setting up and using email was the biggest need. In 1997 many Car Dealers did not want to invest in a computer for the Internet person or secure a designated Internet connection. Today, it’s all about how can we help them be more efficient when it comes to digital marketing, and how can help them do it better than their competition.”
As a visionary who saw the future of photos of your vehicles online in 1996, Google My Business expert, Jeffrey Taylor has uncovered and is exposing another major lead opportunity that is underused, and misunderstood by almost every auto dealer in the nation.
