"I like this, but where do you get the email addresses and are they getting opened. I have the file that is getting opened up to 15%. You have to hit the email address that people are reading daily. Not the one that they opt in with."

Email Marketing

Would like to talk with dealers that have used Email marketing or may be looking at it. I have been researching this for 3 years and I think I may have found the one option that works. I have done this for a Mercedes dealer in Socal and got over 8% of it opened. This file is the only one that I would use. If you are in good meteropliton area Please contact me. This is also a great to market for Service contracts if you are able to sell them private party.

Who are you marketing to. The world is changing and it seems to me that Dealers are still being reactive to it rather than proactive. Of course this is the same way it was when my dad owned a store in the 60s and 70s. Consumer confidence is in the crapper and will get worse if the media keeps reporting it. What I dont under stand is why that same media is used to try and get people in the door at retail outlets even beyond auto. There are people out there who can buy right now and the avenues being used to reach them are the same avenues that keep them away.
Are you marketing to the real decision maker with in the house hold. 85% are women but most of your ads look like they are for the LA or Chicago auto show. I dont think there is a marketer out there that can predict what will happen with anything. Of course they all say you will be sucessfull. They must have a crystal ball that I was never told about. I have some ideas on all this. Call me 866-434-6906
