Because our dealership is located in a mountainous region, the Colorado Z71 is a popular model. Our inventory had built up, so we shifted our focus to the Colorado Z71 for the month. CDK made sure that all our digital assets (website, social and ads) were aligned with that model and continuously optimized the digital advertising spend. Our sales more than doubled - and we almost ran out of inventory.
