2. QUANTITY: Writing more than 12 words will increase contacts by 80% compared to used-vehicles without ad copy.
3. QUALITY: Use language with a strong call-to-action to catch the car shopper’s attention. Incorporate keywords relevant to your vehicle that in-market shoppers frequently search for including new, low, call, special, sale, CARFAX, check, service, incentive, financing, customer, reputation, excellence, experience, family, and quality. Adding five or more of these keywords will result in a 24% boost in contacts1.
4. SEARCHABLE: It’s crucial to list specific characteristics including trim and body style for vehicles to ensure customers find what they are looking for. Two out of every three used-car shoppers narrow down their search results using the filters in place. The top five ways consumer’s filter search results are by year, price, mileage, body, style/trim, and transmission.
