A comprehensive digital marketing plan with live chat is a must
You may think there is no relationship between live chat or marine dealer websites and the NFL Draft, and you’d be right. But there are actually some significant similarities. As we watched the draft progress, it became obvious that though the first two spots went to quarterbacks, the majority of first-round NFL Draft picks pretty much covered the field, from offensive and defensive lines, as well as the defensive backfield.
Cal quarterback, Jared Goff went to the now-Los Angeles Rams in the first slot, and the Philadelphia Eagles grabbed North Dakota State quarterback Carson Wentz next. Aside from a running back picked fourth and wide receivers picked 15th and 21st, the rest of the selections were spread throughout the offense and defense. So even though quarterbacks, running backs, and wide receivers in the glamour positions get the bulk of the glory (and money), teams recognize it takes a full complement of players to be successful.
And so it is with your dealership website. The website may be your crown jewel, but a it takes number of pieces in place for your digital marketing strategy to sell more boats.
