During the initial research phase of the consumer, dealerships need to have a robust multi-channel presence to reach as many consumers as possible and create brand awareness, having a large inventory and the ability to get a vehicle from another dealership to sell at a better price. Location based marketing along with multi-channel marketing allows the dealership to have several contact points with the customer, creating top of mind awareness.
