AutoHook Unleashes Traffic Conversion Analysis (TCA) to Provide Dealers with Groundbreaking Visibility Into their Market’s Sales Trends

AutoHook, the automotive industry’s frontrunner at proving sales, showroom visits, and the ROI of their private incentive offers officially released their latest dealership report, Traffic Conversion Analysis (TCA). TCA, powered by near real-time sales match data from Urban Science gives dealers an entirely new perspective of their sales operations as well as defection trends to competing stores or brands in their market.

DETROIT, MI (PRWEB) SEPTEMBER 13, 2017

AutoHook’s TCA is the first-ever report to deliver a complete, 360-degree analysis of a dealership’s CRM leads, exposing their greatest areas of lost sales opportunities tied to a specific competitor, salesperson, zip code, model, lead source, traffic source, or time frame. Using insights derived from TCA, dealers will have full control over their marketing, lead conversion, and operational processes. The report is revolutionary in that it allows dealers to identify detailed lost opportunities tied to an individual salesperson, using data only hours old.

“The problem dealers have faced for so long is that their CRM data is incomplete, one-dimensional, and only shows their effectiveness against their own sales, but it’s equally important to know how many of their customers purchased from a competitor,” says David Metter, President of AutoHook, powered by Urban Science. “The value of knowing exactly what opportunities you’re losing and why you’re losing them has been completely out of reach, until now.”

TCA matches a dealer’s existing CRM and DMS data with Urban Science’s near real-time sales database to reveal the sources responsible for the highest defection rates. AutoHook’s technology also identifies leads that have already purchased a vehicle elsewhere, thus helping reduce wasted time and marketing efforts chasing customers that are no longer in market for a car.

“In order to successfully grow market share and cut losses dealers need visibility into the source of each lost sale, whether it’s an internal challenge with sales staff or an external issue with a lead source,” says Randy Berlin, Global Account Director at Dealer Services Group, LLC, a subsidiary of Urban Science. “Having the ability to define why a sale fell through ultimately gives dealers the power they need to take full control of their marketing and sales operations.”

TCA’s multidimensional reporting pinpoints missed opportunities and AutoHook then provides the solutions necessary to transform them into showroom visits and closed sales. Based on the insights revealed within TCA, AutoHook implements customized incentive campaigns to target the areas and sources with the highest defection rates.

“We don’t just show dealers all the problems within their operations and send them on their way, we actually prescribe the solutions necessary to cure these issues and execute full-circle with our private incentive offers,” adds Metter.

TCA uses the fastest most accurate sales data available to uncover a narrative dealers have never been able to hear or see before. The value of this knowledge will result in more efficient strategies to increase market share growth even in declining conditions.

AutoHook, powered by Urban Science specializes in proving sales attribution combined with an untouched ability to deliver showroom visits that purchase. Through their network of private incentive offers, AutoHook supplies true, incremental walk-in traffic for dealers and OEMs. Powered by Urban Science's sales match database, AutoHook instantly proves their ROI with the fastest, most accurate sales validation data in existence. AutoHook's incentive solutions are scientifically proven to lift incremental sales, new to brand buyers, showroom visits, and conversion rates across channels.

AutoHook Powered by Urban Science Names SOCIALDEALER an Official API Partner

AutoHook powered by Urban Science announced their official partnership with SOCIALDEALER, the leading provider of social media marketing and reputation management for the automotive industry. As part of their API Partner Program, SOCIALDEALER will have access to AutoHook’s exclusive redemption platform and award-winning attribution engine at no cost to them or their dealer clients.

DETROIT, MICHIGAN (PRWEB) APRIL 12, 2017

SOCIALDEALER can now plug in AutoHook’s private offers and showroom visit validation data to further increase lead conversion rates and prove in-store sales attributed to their specific social campaigns. Integrating with AutoHook’s API allows them to provide dealers with targeted incentives within Facebook Ad Units and Facebook Messenger.

Mutual dealer clients of both AutoHook and SOCIALDEALER will be able to add AutoHook’s private offers into their ad campaigns run through SOCIALDEALER. Through a vast network of data partners, SOCIALDEALER will use AutoHook’s redemption rail system to serve inventory-specific test-drive offers with prepopulated form fields, so all the customer has to do is hit submit. Conversion will increase because the lead form is already filled out with the shopper’s name and contact information.

This partnership is so powerful because it makes it faster and easier for consumers to submit a lead for a test drive while engaging with a dealer’s social content. Incentive offers will be inventory-specific and fully customizable. For instance, if a customer looks at a vehicle on a dealer’s website and later goes on Facebook, SOCIALDEALER will strategically plug in AutoHook’s incentive offers in a very targeted, mobile-optimized way that no one else on the market can execute.

AutoHook leads the industry in driving quality showroom traffic into dealerships at an extremely low cost per sale. Furthermore, powered by Urban Science sales match data, AutoHook has created a truly unparalleled attribution engine, allowing them to provide reporting that proves their solutions resulted in incremental sales and new to brand buyers for dealers and OEMs.

“The beauty in this partnership is that we can inextricably follow the consumer’s purchase journey across social channels to further validate the source that led to a sale,” said David Metter, President of AutoHook powered by Urban Science. “With consumer engagement metrics rising on social media, this partnership is the ideal opportunity to provide additional ROI to dealers without charging integration fees.”

Dealers typically incur a cost when two vendors integrate their technologies with one another, but that is not the case with AutoHook’s API Partner Program. This is the type of partnership that benefits both dealers and online vehicle consumers. “There are two main reasons why this partnership just makes sense and is what dealers have been looking for. First, it provides an online incentive to a highly-engaged car shopper, in a social way. Second, as we know, dealers must track ROI, increase showroom visits, and increase sales. As the first social media agency to bring an ROI platform to market, SOCIALDEALER understands defining ROI. This is the next level of attribution that no one else in market is providing, and why we chose to partner with AutoHook," says Sean Seltzer, CEO of SOCIALDEALER.

By integrating AutoHook's Open API into SOCIALDEALER’S Media platform, dealers now have a one-stop shop in offering incentives across all consumer touch points including their website, dynamic display pages, lead ads, and Messenger AI, all through Facebook’s ad platform.

AutoHook Powered by Urban Science Provides Open API Access to Their Industry Leading Redemption Platform and Attribution Engine at No Cost

AutoHook powered by Urban Science announced they are providing all vendors with free and open access to their private offer and redemption API in efforts to streamline and advance actionable automotive data.

DETROIT, MICHIGAN (PRWEB) JANUARY 24, 2017

AutoHook has taken the first official step towards unifying quality data to improve sales attribution metrics and validate marketing initiatives for both dealers and manufacturers - while allowing preferred technology providers and agencies to simultaneously “ride the rails.”

“Our goal is to create one railroad system, fueled by the data that vitalizes all partner solutions in order to unite the automotive universe and change it for the better,” says David Metter, President of AutoHook powered by Urban Science. “In a world where everyone charges to be connected, we want to be the player to not charge so that we can connect stronger.”

Dealers typically have to pay a fee for vendors to integrate with other providers. AutoHook is opening their API for the purpose of sharing information for the benefit of all parties involved. Today’s dealerships fight a collective battle against two ongoing challenges that waste time, energy and money. The largest pain point being the overwhelming lack of access to accurate, timely sales data. The second problem is the disconnects, or holes in communication that form when two vendors don’t work properly together, thus creating cracks in the industry’s ability to attribute sales to a single source.

“There are a million different ways to drive traffic into a dealership, but there’s only one showroom. AutoHook has laid the redemption rails within thousands of dealerships across the country, serving multiple manufacturers and it’s time to open this up to further assist our dealer and OEM clients,” adds Metter.

Since 2011, AutoHook has served the industry by accurately driving and measuring showroom visits through their private test drive incentive platform. In 2015, AutoHook was acquired by Urban Science and has since had access to near real-time sales performance data, allowing them to provide the industry’s most reliable and up-to-date attribution metrics. Vendors will have free access to AutoHook’s API along with their showroom visit attribution reporting. In addition, they can utilize AutoHook’s unique code generation technology in order to track specific user behavior. Participants will also have the option to access AutoHook's unrivaled sales match validation data.

By providing free, open access to their API, AutoHook plans to create beneficial alliances that will improve conversion rates, lead generation, attributable showroom traffic, and performance reporting for all partners.

The new partnership is particularly synergistic because both AutoHook and PERQ focus on targeting customers with precisely relevant experiences/information and offers/incentives based on real time consumer information and behavior.

PERQ is able to capture five times the amount of data points on online auto customers, helping dealerships better engage with, and convert, website shoppers into showroom buyers - and has already generated over two million leads through its more personal, collective website experience. 

The partnership also facilitates integration between PERQ's FATWIN Web Engagement platform and AutoHook's sales match data, giving dealers and OEMs the power to attribute all showroom visits and sales to a single campaign. AutoHook's incentive solutions are proven to drive incremental leads and sales, while delivering show rates of up to twice the national average.

"We're thrilled to integrate our FATWIN platform with AutoHook's powerful incentive engine," said Andy Medley, co-founder and president of PERQ. "The integration helps us supercharge FATWIN's already interactive and engaging experience while providing solid lead attribution through AutoHook's showroom and sales match data - and, most importantly, driving more leads and showroom visitors to our dealer clients."
