  • Get Rid of Annoying Robo Calls with These 3 Easy Steps

    May 17,2018

    BB Direct understands the annoyance that surrounds receiving random calls from unknown people and businesses. No one likes sitting down to dinner or an important meeting and our phone buzzing in our pockets. We of course are so connected to our phones that we have to check because it could be an issue with one of our children or maybe grandma fell, but when we check our cell phone screens flash “SPAM CALL”.

  • Smarter Marketing is Vital to Weather Auto Dealership Slump

    September 20,2017

    Auto marketingWhen you look at the US auto industry by numbers, you would think that all is well and business is booming.

    In 2016 over 17.55 million new vehicles were sold in the US. These numbers top the pre-financial crisis numbers from 2005 which peaked at 16.98 million vehicles.  But, the auto industry being profitable isn’t about the volume of vehicles sold, but the breakdown of SVUs and light trucks.  The percentage of these types of vehicles plays a large part of total vehicle sales.  A record high of 64.5% was reported in June of 2017.

    The fact of the matter is this; automakers make a much higher profit on selling trucks and SUVs over selling smaller cars.  Current retail prices for vehicles in the US are:... Read More

    That’s why it’s incredibly important for marketers to stay up to date, not just on the latest technological developments in marketing channels like the recent ‘mobile-geddon’ for example, but also on best practices for employing those channels as well as the potentially shifting tastes and preferences of target audiences.
