October 1, 2016, Cherry Hill, NJ — Organizers of the upcoming Digital Dealer Workshops have announced that John Possumato, CEO of Automotive Mobile Solutions (AMS) will lead an automotive dealer focused presentation on emerging proximity marketing, geo-fencing and beacon technologies using Mobile (Apple & Google) Wallet and customized dealership apps.

AMS’s founder, attorney and digital marketing expert, John Possumato, said dealers are just beginning to explore the marketing possibilities of mobile wallet technology, which is built into every new iPhone and Android smartphone.

“Proximity marketing techniques, such as geo-fencing and using strategically placed beacons, provide the ultimate leverage for acquiring low cost, dealer generated low-in-the-funnel sales leads,” Possumato said. “Long term, relationship building development is nice, but being able to ‘Reach Out, When they are Ready to Buy!” (the title of our workshop), is critical to actually making the sale, in vehicles sales or service operations”
Possumato continues, “Retail is a cutthroat competition these days, and dealers need a new way to cost-effectively gain leverage in the consumer’s ‘back pocket’ with time-sensitive, location-based offers. Flash sales for both variable and fixed operations are now possible through geo-fencing and beacons through mobile wallet and customized apps, and in ways that have never been available before this technology emerged on the scene.”

Possumato added that a number of major retailers, including Starbucks, Best Buy and Macy’s, are using mobile wallet to connect with customers and keep them coming back. He plans to discuss the technology in “Reach Out When They Are Ready to Buy!” at 1:30 on Tuesday, Oct 18, at the Digital Dealer Workshops, at the Crowne Plaza in Cherry Hill, NJ.
