Are you live video conferencing with your customers yet? If not, you should be. These days, we all Facetime on a regular basis, so we are comfortable video-chatting on our smartphones. Why not utilize this tactic to sell cars, too? One-click live video conferencing gives you the face-to-face interaction with customers that allows for a personal connection – and for you to ultimately lock down that sale.
At TECOBI, we have built our very own live video conferencing platform for automotive dealers. It’s one of the fastest, easiest, and most dynamic ways to sell more cars, quickly and easily (even during a pandemic.) Don’t miss out on the opportunity to get ahead of the competition and start live video conferencing with your customers today.
The Rise of Live Video Conferencing
These days, we are all on Skype, Zoom, Google Meet, or some other video conferencing platform all the time. Thanks to the pandemic, even older generations who didn’t used to be comfortable using these apps use them on a regular basis. We use these platforms to see and chat with friends and family. Meeting up with friends for a virtual happy hour is the new normal in 2021.
Not to mention, many of us who are able to work remotely also are used to virtual online meetings on a daily basis, too. But, we’re not just using video calling for fun and for work. We’ve also come up with other ways to use video calling: many people check in with their doctors or even have their therapy appointments over Zoom or another platform.
In fact, according to one study, nearly one-third of respondents are using live video to chat with a business, brand, or service provider. There is no evidence that this trend will die down post-pandemic. Consumers have adjusted to this new digital way of conducting their lives, and many of them like it, even prefer it, over conducting business in person.
So, why shouldn’t the automotive industry also be using a similar video conferencing platform in order to sell more cars, too?
Live Video Conferencing for the Automotive Industry
We all know that now, more than ever, customers want a way of doing business from the comfort and safety of their own homes. Unfortunately, car sales are one of the hardest to lock down online. Our solution is one-click live video conferencing. The automotive industry actually lags behind when it comes to utilizing the benefits of live video conferencing.
We already know that digital retail is the way of the future when it comes to auto sales. As times change, the automotive industry needs to innovate and grow in order to meet the needs of the customers. At TECOBI, we help our clients adapt and not just meet the challenges of auto dealers, but help them grow.
The next level of digital retail is live video conferencing. Live video conferencing is certain to be a huge part of the automotive business in the coming years. One of the factors that can be lost in digital retail is the face-to-face interaction between car salesman and car-buying clients. That connection builds trust and oftentimes, helps finally close the deal. Just like lead generation is different in 2021, so are the methods for how you make a sale.
Benefits of Live Video Conferencing for the Auto Industry
If you’re still not convinced, there are several benefits of video calling just for the automotive industry:
One of the most important aspects of selling cars is the personal interaction between the salesman and the customer. With live video conferencing, you don’t lose out on this relationship. You can chat safely and personally with your potential client, answer all their questions, and get the deal done.
Show Off Inventory
A video call allows you to show a customer the vehicle they like in a much more interesting and dynamic way than simply sending them photos will do.
Plays to Dealers’ Strengths
Many automotive dealers are at their best when they are able to chat up potential clients in order to make a sale. Video conferencing allows salesmen to utilize their best strengths when selling cars, without having to make a lot of adaptations.
With the pandemic still affecting how we do business, TECOBI’s live video conferencing is a solution built for auto dealers. This is the way you can do digital retail, but still have a salesperson to help customers make their decisions. Be a step ahead of the competition when it comes to live video conferencing with customers with TECOBI Meet.
How does TECOBI Meet Work?
It’s as simple as this: you schedule a meeting to go live with your customer, and then send them the link. All they have to do is click the link to join, and they’re in. They don’t even have to download an app to their phone. It’s THAT easy. This isn’t just for your tech-savvy clients, it’s for anyone and everyone.
You can do everything you would in a normal meeting, besides shaking hands to celebrate the deal! Go ahead and show off your inventory, give them an in-depth look at a vehicle, let them hear the sound of the engine, and answer all their questions – in real time. If they have a trade-in, you can take a look while you’re on the call. You can even text the customer a credit application while on the call, and close the deal.
All you’ll have to do is set up pickup or delivery, and you’re done.
Stay a Mile Ahead of the Competition with TECOBI Live Video Conferencing
Many automotive dealers are stuck in the past when it comes to selling cars and wary to try the latest innovations in auto marketing, like Facebook advertising and text messaging with customers. In the coming years, live video conferencing will be one of the most enduring trends in automotive sales. Don’t get left in the dust by your competition or Carvana when it comes to innovating to meet the needs of customers. Instead, speed off into the sunset with the commission from the sale you just made over a live video conference!
