You Should Be Obsessed with Fuel Economy – Here’s Why 

Beginning in March 2022, gas prices SOARED. Now 4 months later, the average price of a gallon of gas across the country is nearing $5 which is “…a new all-time high not only on a national level but in all 50 states.” Consumers are more price aware and price sensitive than ever which means we have an opportunity to make the information they’re after easily accessible in your digital storefront. 

Increase Leads and Improve Engagement with Filter Tags

Consumers have come to expect a simple and intuitive online research and shopping experience, and their expectations of auto dealer sites are no different. Unfortunately, there is still one page on dealer sites that requires multiple steps – filtering the Inventory Search Results. Shouldn’t this process be easier? It can be! Dealers can streamline inventory refinement by adding Sincro’s Filter Tag feature to their Vehicle Search Results (VSR) page.  

Prepare for Upcoming Changes to Dealer Listings on Facebook Marketplace

With more than 20 million people clicking on listings each month, Facebook’s Marketplace for Autos is one of the most popular places to shop for used vehicles online, but come September, significant changes will be hitting the platform. Facebook announced the decision to end mass listing of used vehicles on Marketplace with partner catalog feeds, which means that dealers will no longer be able to rely on partners like Sincro to promote their used inventory on Marketplace. While this may sound ominous, it does not mean the end of automotive on Marketplace, but rather a change in listing vehicles at scale and an opportunity to consider other strategies to promote inventory on Facebook and keep shoppers engaged.

Highlight Towing to Boost SUV Sales

lanning summer vacations, and most are domestic. With more Americans being vaccinated and many people hoarding days off without realizing it, safe vacations through road trips are highly anticipated.   With an increase of 74% YOY in personal watercrafts, 34% increase YOY in boat sales, and a rise in camper sales for the second year in a row – towing is top of mind for many travelers this summer. With low new truck inventory across all OEMs now, more shoppers are considering other options that can help get them to their summer road trip destination.
