Nobody ever said selling cars was easy. Price negotiations, steep competition, and consumers with high expectations all make dealerships a high-risk, but high-reward, type of business. As dealerships forge ahead in the digital age when car buyers are already 57% of the way through their purchase journey by the time they step foot on the lot, many are looking for ways to gain the consumer's attention earlier in the sales cycle.

Digital marketers are facing two massive challenges - disconnected technology and a poor data structure.
The solution is to create an integrated marketing strategy with technology platforms that communicate seamlessly. You also need a data structure designed specifically to deliver the right metrics and performance for your business.

You have technology, data and customers. There's a lot of talk about bringing all three together, but there's rarely a perfect omnichannel experience. To get to this point, it's time to start connecting the dots. For instance, why your CRM and your marketing? Combine them into one platform to…Continue

Swapalease.com, the nation’s largest car lease marketplace, reports lease credit approvals slipped to 75.0%, down slightly from the 80.0% mark reached entering October. Even with the change, the approvals rate on the year actually improved to 72.4%, a healthy mark for credit approvals.
Over the last three months, the lease credit approvals rate has been among the highest Swapalease.com has ever seen at 80.4%. In fact, Swapalease.com executives weren’t shocked to see the rate slip this month since it would have been difficult to keep the successful pace it had been on over the past 90 days.
Swapalease.com executives are continually looking to identify patterns above and beyond a still-improving economy to determine where and how the credit approval rate has increased in the second half of the year. One reason may be that leasing in general is attracting a different type of car shopper profile. As an example being explored by Swapalease.com, a…
Welcome to this week's edition of Black Book Market Insights, with in-depth analysis of used car and truck valuation trends and insights straight from the auction lanes. Click here to download the full report.
The Black Book Market Insights report this week looks at the continuing impact late-year seasonality is having across all car and truck segments. What’s more, the report offers front-line insight from remarketing executives at Ford and General Motors, who both offer a glimpse into auction strategies for key segments, CPO programs and off-lease plans.
“Wholesale values have declined at a relatively high rate in recent weeks, a foreseen trend, caused by the impact of seasonality,” said Anil Goyal, Vice President of Automotive Valuation and Analytics.

Average pre-recession annual depreciation was continually recorded between -15% and -18%, and Black Book expects 2015 depreciation near -13.0%.

Despite strong Arab opposition, the United Nations votes for the partition of Palestine and the creation of an independent Jewish state.
The modern conflict between Jews and Arabs in Palestine dates back to the 1910s, when both groups laid claim to the British-controlled territory. The Jews were Zionists, recent emigrants from Europe and Russia who came to the ancient homeland of the Jews to establish a Jewish national state. The native Palestinian Arabs sought to stem Jewish immigration and set up a secular Palestinian state.
Beginning in 1929, Arabs and Jews openly fought in Palestine, and Britain attempted to limit Jewish immigration as a means of appeasing the Arabs. As a result of the Holocaust in Europe, many Jews illegally entered Palestine during World War II. Radical Jewish groups employed terrorism against British forces in Palestine, which they thought had betrayed the Zionist cause. At the end of World War II, in 1945, the United States took up the Zionist cause. Britain, unable to find a practical solution, referred the problem to the United Nations, which on November 29, 1947, voted to partition Palestine.
The Jews were to possess more than half of Palestine, though they made up less than half of Palestine’s population. The Palestinian Arabs, aided by volunteers from other countries, fought the Zionist forces, but the Jews secured full control of their U.N.-allocated share of Palestine and also some Arab territory. On May 14, 1948, Britain withdrew with the expiration of its mandate, and the State of Israel was proclaimed by Jewish Agency Chairman David Ben-Gurion. The next day, forces from Egypt, Transjordan, Syria, Lebanon, and Iraq invaded.
The Israelis, though less well equipped, managed to fight off the Arabs and then seize key territories, such as Galilee, the Palestinian coast, and a strip of territory connecting the coastal region to the western section of Jerusalem. In 1949, U.N.-brokered cease-fires left the State of Israel in permanent control of those conquered areas. The departure of hundreds of thousands of Palestinian Arabs from Israel during the war left the country with a substantial Jewish majority.
