What it comes down to is this: To realize digital retailing's full potential, you need to pair it with messaging assistance. Come see what we uncovered in these in-depth, in-person interviews and a survey of 1,000+ car buyers and shoppers. 

Key takeaways include:

  • How to help more people complete the digital retailing process you set up.
  • Why it's so important to think about who answers your car shoppers when they chat or text.
  • How to use this information for a competitive edge.
  • Statistics from qualitative and quantitative research about digital retailing and messaging.
