You’ve worked so hard attracting customers to your site. Do you want to lose them when they click on a social media button (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube)? This may happen when a new browser window opens up, moving customers’ focus away from your dealership. And yet you need to have social media on your website to promote your dealership and appeal to the thousands of people who use social media on a daily basis. With the Social Media Bar, your customers can use social media, while remaining on your dealership website.
The Social Media Toolbar consolidates all of those widgets, buttons, and random social media links you may already have on your dealership website into one streamlined toolbar at the bottom (or side) of your website. Unlike those widgets and buttons which send customers off of your website, viewers can view your activities on social media, your blog, or other key pages, without every leaving your website.
Once the initial toolbar has been set up, an easy-to-use dashboard gives you control over the toolbar’s functions. You can update your social media links on the toolbar at any time! While most of our clients choose the horizontal toolbar at the bottom of their website, you can have the toolbar at the top, or vertically on either side of the website. When the viewer clicks an icon on the toolbar, an overlay window opens from the toolbar, large enough to display your Facebook wall posting, YouTube channel, or latest blog articles, without hiding your website. Having the Social Media Toolbar on a dealership website is the equivalent of giving your viewers brochures to view while they stay in your dealership, and not sending them across the street to read the information.
You decide which social media icons and content will be accessible via your toolbar. The Social Media Bar allows viewers to Share the page on Facebook or hit “Like” for all their friends to see the page on their Facebook pages.
Here are the most popular choices among dealerships:
|visitors can view your latest Facebook wall posts and like the page for their friends to see.|
|viewers “Like” your page, directly from the toolbar, and all their friends on Facebook will see it.|
|viewers see the latest on your Twitter feed.|
|viewers open your channel and see all of your dealership's YouTube content, cleanly displayed. A simple click plays any of the videos.|
|viewers can share your website page across many social media sites.|
|viewers easily read your blog posts, without losing their place on your site.|
