Leveraging sophisticated AI for your dealership’s video marketing strategy


There’s nothing more powerful than TV when it comes to marketing, and dealers know this. However, it’s also very expensive to do well. Executing television marketing efficiently and cost-effectively is an area that dealers typically struggle with, and they could use more help. Today, we’re pleased to welcome back Len Short, Chairman and CEO of LotLinx, to discuss their new video marketing platform called VINtv.

VINtv is powered by the LotLinx Data Network which tracks millions of active websites, including big vehicle listing sites, news channels, social platforms, and dealerships’ inventory and pricing. When a consumer shows legitimate interest in buying a product from your inventory, LotLinx AI will serve up your automated VINtv advertisements wherever the customer watches video media online.

LotLinx’s sophisticated AI will auto-populate the ad based on a specific VIN’s make, model, pricing, and more. The ads will also direct the customer to your customized Vehicle Details Page (VDP) for an optimal buying experience. To find out more, watch our entire interview above.
