Google's Dealer Guidebook 2.5 Prepares Dealers for the Future


Where:Right from your computer



In just one year, COVID-19 spurred a drastic shift in the automotive industry that would have normally taken much longer. For example, in the first six months of 2020, nearly 10 percent of car purchases occurred online, compared to just 1 percent during all of 2018. This prompted dealers to quickly pivot to online retailing and a fully digitized purchase process.

Google is helping dealers prepare for whatever comes next. Take the newly released Dealer Guidebook 2.5, for example. It will help Tier 3 auto advertisers create strategies that build upon these new trends, as well as help increase dealer profitability while preparing for the future.

Attend this webinar to:

  • Learn about the latest e-commerce and online-retailing strategies.
  • Understand how insights about digital car shopping drove the recommendations in Dealer Guidebook 2.5.
  • Take a deep dive into Dealer Guidebook 2.5 and review the products that can help dealers take action today.
