Congratulations to Autohaus Jakob for receiving the coveted 2017 Internet Sales Award at the International Automotive Exhibition (IAA) in Germany!
For this month's Vlog, we've got Internet Manager Kyle Bolton with Newton Motor Group here to give his thoughts on the Authntk experience! Recording from Tennessee, Kyle talks about his dealership's 3 years using Authntk Walkaround Videos to increase engagement in their sales process.
What’s the most effective way to increase Internet sales at your dealership?
If there was one simple thing you could add to your day that would increase your Internet business by 30-40%, would you do it?
Michael Kuna did. Let's all be like Mike! Michael is a Sales Representative at Causeway Family of Dealerships in New Jersey. Michael has been using Authntk Walkaround Videos to create more connections and interactions with customers, and sell more vehicles.
“Walkaround Videos is such a great tool to use. It has pushed up business on the internet side about 30-40%.”
With Walkaround Videos, Michael says he's now doing the following
- Taking the lead of other dealerships in the area
- Sending videos to customers of real, live cars on the ground
- Doing product demonstrations
- Seeing increased participation in surveys
- Generating positive reviews
- Thanking the customer for their business
- Answering questions
- GIVING THE CUSTOMER THE INFORMATION THEY WANT
Watch the other powerful benefits Michael has enjoyed since adopting Walkaround Videos:
According to Michael, "People like seeing a video". He appreciates how they can see who they are speaking with, and can be confident that the person works for the dealership, and not someone from a call center. Since he personalizes each video with the customer's name, and can send them just information they are interested in receiving, Michael finds he is able to make a more meaningful connection.
But the biggest reason Micael loves having Walkaround Videos? The overall elevation of his business. As Michael says,
"Before [using Walkaround Videos], we really weren't in the internet game. With this app, it really took us to the next level."
These are just a few of the many ways Michael uses Walkaround Videos to create a distinct, lasting impression on the customers.
If there was one simple thing you could add to your day that would steer sales away from your local competition and drive them to your dealership, would you do it?
Cono Cirone did. Cono is Sales Manager of Causeway Family of Dealerships in New Jersey. Since November 2014, Cono has been using Authntk Walkaround Videos to separate himself from the competition, and sell more vehicles.
“We’re seeing sales that we’re taking away from other dealers locally, because we’re able to communicate with them [customers], show them the car and enhance the process. It makes life easy.”
Watch the other great things Cono has to say about Walkaround Videos:
Cono points out that the technology is very “in-the-now.” He loves how customers can turn around and share his videos with their friends. Since he can send the videos by email or text message, it’s very flexible, and he appreciates having access to campaigns that he can change and customize. He points out that it’s a good idea to use Walkaround Videos for everything from thanking people for their inquiry to providing testimonials and giving positive reviews after the sale.
But the biggest reason Cono loves having Walkaround Videos? The experience. As Cono says,
“We’re bringing the showroom right to your phone, and your computer.”
These are just a few of the many ways Cono uses Walkaround Videos to create a distinct, lasting impression the customers.
With an easy-to-use app that lives on his phone, he only needs about 90 seconds to record and send unique, personalized video messages that connect 1:1 with the customer and help him stand out.

Are you looking for a way to take sales at your dealership to the next level? Authntk Walkaround Videos is a great way to do that. With an easy-to-use app that lives on your phone, it only takes about 90 seconds for auto dealers to record and send unique, personalized video messages that connect 1:1 with the customer and help you stand out. But don’t take our word for it! Watch what Steve Orban, Internet Director, of Deery Brothers Chrysler, Iowa City, IA had to say about Walkaround Videos:
Steve recently got his dealership on board with Walkaround Videos, and right away there was a dramatic impact, including:
Increase in the number of customers who call back Increase in the number of appointments set Increase in the number of appointments kept Increase in the number of vehicles sold
Steve is particularly impressed with the advantage Walkaround Videos give him over the competition. As soon as a customer gets in touch with his dealership, his sales team takes the lead, does a Walkaround demonstration of a vehicle the customers is interested in, and sends it by SMS text or email to the customer in a matter of minutes … before other dealerships can even reply!
For the investment, Steve says, "it’s a no-brainer". So shouldn’t YOU give it a try?
