PODCAST: Should You Be Using Video in Your Marketing Strategy?

Chris Leslie and Ryan Gerardi, AutoConverse

Here is your monthly installment of Chris K Leslie & Ryan Gerardi opining and analyzing on key conversations and developments in the auto and tech industries.

In this episode, we talk in depth about what it really takes for dealers to be effective with video in their marketing strategy, which begins about 21 minutes in. The conversation stemmed from a piece that Chris did last year on the NextUp blog titled, You Shouldn’t Be Using Video in Your Marketing Strategy.

In the post, Chris recognizes that Internet users love consuming video, but he argues that argues that “[R]egardless of how many workshops or sessions you have attended showing you the “why’s” and the “how’s” (of doing video) it still seems to be impossible to get your dealership to adopt a video strategy.”

The purpose of his post was to reinforce to why you SHOULDN’T do video, a point that I argue against in THIS podcast.

Other Topics of Conversation

As usual, we also get into other topics such Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, Tesla production (or lack thereof), future road systems, Hyperloop, and more for about the first 20 minutes. The conversation was recorded July 5th so you will hear us open up about the 4th of July.
