Your consumers are buying cars, with or without you. They no longer need you to persuade them to make a purchase. What is needed, however, is for you to provide your audiences with reasons to choose to buy specifically from you. That’s why your dealership and salespeople need to brand themselves online.

Here are 5 Easy Tips for Starting Your Personal Online Brand:

  1. Be consistent.

It won’t happen overnight,  so make sure you are consistently posting something at least once a day.

  1. Comment on other influencer’s posts in your market.

If you don’t have a strong following yet, it’s good to gain attention and respect by commenting on the posts of other notable influencers in your market. That way, over time, they will start to know you, follow you, respect you, and buy from you.

A noteworthy Instagram influencer teaches us that social media provides a platform to find and connect with people.

That way, when they realize they need a car, you’re the first person that comes to mind.

  1. Use #Hashtags that apply to YOUR IDEAL BUYER

Who is your ideal buyer? Put yourself in their shoes and then think of what topics they’d search for online. Those should be your hashtags.
