Extract from Scoosh Car Dealer Report
The following tables are extracts from our report and gives the score out of 100.
The audit uses industry-standard metrics in determining how well a website will perform in terms of generating interest and therefore growing customers.
For a website to perform well it should aim for a score consistently above 70.
Websites that consistently score above 70 will tend to be more successful in generating leads and enquiries from their marketing efforts and are positioning well for e-commerce to represent a larger % of their sales.
The average of the 100 audited car dealership websites in this list is only 60.
The upside of this is that there are still opportunities for those car dealers to grow online.
The low average figure is also indicative of why new entrants to the market see the opportunities.
