How to respond to internet car leads

Walter Bilson

How to respond to internet car I doing it wrong? I've been sending follow-up emails but am always wondering if I can do more. Thoughts?

It all depends. And when I say that, for me, it is about the source of the lead. Wherein, OEM leads could be 2-3 months buying cycle vs. the dealer website lead on a pre-owned vehicle that has a shelf life of 72hrs or so. That being said, we do send customers a sales blast once monthly for those who have inquired in the last 90 days. And as for manual emails, we will send 3 options for both new/pre-owned, and usually get a 35-40% open rate. (90-days), and might sell a couple of units from it.
