Now that you know the impor­tance of attract­ing the mil­len­ni­al shop­per, the next step is mak­ing sure you suc­cess­ful­ly com­mu­ni­cate with them.

Mil­len­ni­als are an extreme­ly tech savvy gen­er­a­tion who do almost every­thing online, includ­ing shop for cars. And while it’s unlike­ly that a mil­len­ni­al would spend 12–13 hours phys­i­cal­ly at your deal­er­ship, that’s how much time they will spend on aver­age look­ing at your inven­to­ry online. When shop­ping for used cars, mil­len­ni­als take their time to do research, com­pare pric­ing, ana­lyze vehi­cle his­to­ry infor­ma­tion and read reviews. The end result is a well-edu­cat­ed and ready-to-buy shop­per. To stand out to them, it’s wise to invest as much in your online pres­ence as you would your phys­i­cal lot.
