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:

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 [...]

How to Store Your Car During Lockdown

Unless you’re an essential worker during this difficult time, your car is probably going to be sitting in the garage (or in your yard) for quite some time. We’re here to answer any questions you have regarding how to store your car during South Africa’s COVID-19 lockdown.

Where should I park my car?

The best place to leave your car for a significant amount of time is in a garage. Parking it under cover is fine as well but your car would be more exposed to the elements. If you can’t do either of those things, try and park your car where it gets a bit of shade during the heat of the day. Avoid parking near trees or shrubs that drop leaves or sap.

Will my battery die if I don’t run my car?

Your battery, if it wasn’t too old when [...]

Attract, engage and convert more qualified vehicle shoppers

Brand behaviour is normally demonstrated by the employees you as the customer must deal with, they are responsible for bringing the brand you are interested in life through their actions and convictions. As so-called ambassadors, employees have very high credibility and normally their behaviour is impressed on you as the customer, business partner, friends and acquaintances as the essence of the particular brand image – when the Behaviour and Arrogance of an employee Superceeds the Brand – take note-for this is not a short term relationship – you will during the ownership of your vehicle have to deal with the people representing a specific brand.
