Aug. 23, 2011 - PRLog -- Consumers are researching the web before making auto purchase decisions. Dealers are becoming aware of the shift and consumer behavior and are leveraging Social Media for marketing.

According to a USA today article titled
"Just a few years ago, John Pohlig might have hung up balloons and perhaps an inflatable gorilla outside this Honda dealership here to attract shoppers. Instead he's posting notes on Facebook and other social media sites. The effort is aimed at getting people to comment on what kind of car they're likely to drive on a vacation — and includes dangling the chance to win a free iPad in return for a "like" endorsement on Facebook. John Pohlig, director of marketing for Scott Robinson Honda in Torrance, California, uses Facebook and other social media to try and increase business. “

Wikimotive has created a proven and effective Social Media process to help dealers leverage Social Media.

• With over 500 million users - you cannot ignore Facebook.
• Marlboro Nissan consistently sells over 20 cars a month as a result of their Facebook page.
• Right now Facebook has over 150 Million active US accounts..75 Million of those people sign in every day..That means about 1/4 the entire US population, has signed into FACEBOOK..All of these people spend 210 Billion minutes on Facebook..That's roughly 400,000 YEARS!!!
