Even though traffic to one of our manufacturer's sites is down 8%, our site's traffic is up 12%! Better yet, our YTD traffic on our main site has increased 20%.
Having a Social Marketing Specialist is the biggest advantage of using Naked Lime. A recent press release she wrote put our dealership in 9 of the top 10 Google results spots.
Mobile page views have accounted for 15.4% of the total page views for our dealership's domain, which is nearly twice the industry average.
I went from spending 3-5 hours a week managing our dealership's digital reputation to only 3-5 minutes.

One of the biggest advantages of having a website from Naked Lime is that it's easy to edit on the fly.
Problems are very rare with a Naked Lime hosted website but when they arise, the dedicated support staff is always very professional, supportive and efficient! Any issues I might have are usually resolved same day which is greatly appreciated. No one in the automotive based industry does website hosting or provides support better than Naked Lime!

We love our specialist that we get with our Digital Marketing Services. If an issue arises, she immediately notifies us and asks what course of action we’d like to take. The content she posts is relevant, timely, and unique. I couldn’t ask for better service- Naked Lime always makes our dealerships look good!
Dealer.com is supposed to be the biggest and baddest website out there, but I might only get 10 quality leads from it per month. I can get the same amount of quality leads from my Naked Lime site in just a few days.
We are receiving more credit apps than ever with our new Naked Lime site and we sell to about 70% of those. By making it easier for customers to submit their credit application on our Naked Lime site, it’s made the financing process easier on everyone, including the dealership.
I love the blog posts, Twitter content, and Facebook campaigns that our SEO and Social specialist produces. She is wonderful and is always willing to help us, even at the last minute. With her help, we've grown from 98 “likes” on Facebook to 236 – plus we've added 100 followers.

The last time we sent a conquest mailer out we found Honda and Toyota customers right in our backyard that were not buying from us – the mailer brought them in. I don’t know how you do it, but you find good quality prospects.
You just can’t get this level of consistency, efficiency and these types of results when you piecemeal companies together. The marketing we are doing now is based on fact and not gut instinct.
We can see what we’re doing well and where we need improvement. Our CSI scores have gone up 10 points in the last year. That’s HUGE!
When we used different third party companies for our SEO, social media, and everything else, I was not sure if any communication was happening between them.
Targeted Marketing helps me control my advertising spending. I don’t need a large budget because it keeps customers coming in. We’ve brought in $73,720.82 in gross profit over the last year from customers who haven’t been in for service for more than a year. Targeted Marketing continues to show me results month after month.
I’m no longer wasting my time chasing down multiple vendors to solve problems. We have a working relationship with you like we have with no one else.
From May to July, we generated over $93,000 from service promotions, had 114 service customers come in that hadn’t been here in over a year, and saw 44 first time customers.
We have seen 300% more online reviews, a 100% increase in visits to our websites, and over a 500% increase in leads coming from our paid advertising. Our internet department is now producing 80% of our sales.
We wouldn’t be able to achieve these results without Naked Lime. The products and services we use are of tremendous value and are unmatched by others I’ve seen in the industry.
We’ve gained 750 reviews in the past year using our reputation management team. Our paid advertising brought in over 3,000 visitors - 61% of those were visitors who had never been to our site.
GM SFE Reputation Management has helped us focus on providing excellent customer service. We know that customers share their experiences digitally, whether they tell us or not. We are confident that with this program, if we do stumble and disappoint a customer, we will know and have a chance to respond.
Naked Lime is the extra pair of eyes I need to watch our digital storefront.
From email campaigns and social media to our website and our new newsletter, they all work together so we have a consistent theme. And the reporting is phenomenal – I’m able to see the ROI of everything we do.
We’ve taken our average advertising spend per customer from $600 to $500. We’ve migrated from 90% traditional and 10% digital to 50/50 while dropping our ad budget by $100,000 a month. And we’re up 10% year over year!
It’s nice to work with one company to do everything – web, social, content writing, reputation, email marketing. To me, that’s Marketing 101 – if you’re not sending the same message across every platform, you’re making a grave mistake.
We sold 41 cars from our first direct mail piece! Toyota and Mazda store combined net profit is up 42% year over year. It’s been a record breaking year and we couldn’t have done it without Naked Lime.
We are closing up to 80% and we average $550 more per car on XtreamService deals.
The number one source of lost opportunity we have is our own customers. XtreamService goes a long way toward eliminating that. Business has increased 10% - probably more in Service – and gross profit has increased by $1000 per car.
With XtreamService, we can reach our customers and keep them in the buying cycle every 36 months. We average $2,600 per copy and our leads keep going up and up.
We used to do marketing on a hunch, but the market is getting more sophisticated, and we had to be smarter. We’ve seen our dealer loyalty jump from 33% to 41%. Customer retention is important because it also means a lot of money for our dealership from Nissan.
