  1. Facebook Marketing
    Facebook is still one of the most widely used social media platforms – and for very good reason. You can target your consumers with tailored ads, links to your website, and sponsored content. For car dealerships, this could create a broader network of customers thanks to your existing client base sharing, liking and commenting on your content.
  2. Twitter Updates
    Unlike Facebook that relies on longer, more detailed posts to drive traffic, Twitter is a one-stop news and events platform that keeps your audience updated on your sales, events and news. Have a vehicle auction coming up? Tweet about it! More often than not, your audience will remember those short bits of information instead of simply scrolling past.
  3. The Power of Instagram
    Instagram might just be the best platform to target new and young drivers. You can create a narrative for your brand that’s transparent, engaging and customer-centric. While you might not sell thousands [...]

Vehicle Pricing After Lockdown: What to Expect

The nationwide lockdown has had an effect on virtually every industry in our country. How will it affect the automotive industry? Read on to see what we predict for the coming year and how we answer some of your burning questions about the effect COVID-19 will have on the automotive industry.

Will I still be able to buy a car?

The good news is that you will still be able to buy a car during the lockdown. In fact, the car buying process remains virtually unchanged up until the point of delivery. In this situation, your new car will be stored at the dealership until their doors are opened again and the lockdown has been lifted. You will also unfortunately not be able to test-drive your car before buying it, but that being said, most dealerships have a virtual or digital showroom where you can [...]

The Mobility-Online KPI Dashboard

The Mobility Team provides your business with a KPI Dashboard that helps you optimise your business on a daily basis. One of the key focuses of our KPI Dashboard is to show you how much you are spending per vehicle on a daily basis before there is an active buyer.

Why You Should Use It

A KPI (Key Performance Indicator) dashboard helps you focus on making money and not on the units you’ve sold. Used vehicles should be sold within 120 days. If you don’t manage this properly, you lose profit opportunities and it can cost you money where you should be making money. You can establish the exact impact of this lost opportunity by dividing the actual number of days a vehicle has been in stock by your stock turn and then multiply this by your average profit.

Our KPI Dashboard includes 5 different calculators. These are:

Volvo bucks the trend in the premium sector

Volvo Car South Africa has closed their first quarter on a high, bucking the trend that has seen the sales of all other premium car companies plummet.

In the first three months of 2020, Volvo grew sales by 16%. All other premium manufacturers registered declines, which varied from -2 to -38%. The total passenger car market declined by 6% during this period while the premium segment declined by 18%.

While its sales grew in the first quarter, Volvo has also grown its share of segment. “In March, we achieved an 11.9% share of segment and, for quarter one, it was 10.7%. This compares to 7.7% in 2019,” reveals Greg Maruszewski, managing director of Volvo Car South Africa.

The two star performers in the Volvo range within South [...]

The Difference Between Your Online Business and Your Online Reputation

Your online presence could make or break your business – especially during times where you’re relying heavily on your online income to carry your through for a few weeks. What is the difference between your online business and your online reputation? Is there even a difference at all? Read on to find out how these two concepts differ.

Your Online Reputation

You could have one of the most incredible services or products in the world, but if your online reputation isn’t up to par, your online business might not make it. Your reputation depends on how you interact with your clients online, the kind of content you share with your audience and the way that you handle feedback or criticism. The best way to build a great online reputation is by:

Sharing high-quality content. Quality over quantity is the phrase of [...]

How to Connect with Customers Online

In a world where we’re all connected in some way, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to make those connections meaningful. As a small online business, you need to share content and connect with customers in a way that sets you apart from the rest of the pack.

Your audience is most probably actively avoiding the drone of hundreds of brands constantly trying to push a product online. They’re under a never-ending onslaught of advertising, sponsored posts, branding and marketing. How do you make sure that your brand’s voice is heard over the roar? You do it by following these tips:

Be Active.

Quality over quantity is a great guide to not overwhelming your audience with a mountain of posts that are all advertising the same thing. Keep in mind, however, that you can’t only post one Instagram image and expect to grow an engaged audience. The [...]
