The Power of your Dealership Website Jake Aschendorf | Vice President of OEM Relations | Dealer Spike Over 80% of consumers do research online before making an in-store purchase. 50% of those consumers are using their mobile device. What type of experience do consumers have when they visit your website on their phone or tablet? Does your site load quickly? Is the content on your site well organized? And can the dealership be contacted in one click? If you want consumers to make the journey from their phones to your dealership, the power lies within your website.
