In the 2022 Global Automotive Consumer Study, Deloitte reports 75% of U.S. consumers prefer an in-person purchasing experience for their next vehicle, while 48% who said they would buy online would purchase from a dealer they trusted.
Over the last two and half years, consumer buying habits appear to have made some permanent shifts that cannot be ignored, such as 92% of car buyers are using a combination of online and in-person purchasing journeys. In the 2022 Global Automotive Consumer Study, Deloitte reports 75% of U.S. consumers prefer an in-person purchasing experience for their next vehicle, while 48% who said they would buy online would purchase from a dealer they trusted.
Although consumers continue to spend over 13 hours researching their next purchase online, car buyers still heavily rely on the comprehensive experience dealerships provide. The challenge remains the same, providing a better experience than the dealership down the street — and your best chance is owning their first impression, the initial phone call.
Capturing a car buyers’ business is very competitive, even with our unique inventory challenges right now, so it’s critical to ensure everything is done to ensure your first impression will lead to a positive customer experience. How many times a day are calls getting missed, not being returned, or go directly into voicemail? And do you know what triggered their call – which marketing campaign or web page influenced their need to connect?
