Another Big Disruptor is Joining the Automotive World

As an industry, we’re witnessing the largest shift and money grab in history -- from the likes of Carvana, Blinker, and Fair, to the possible entrance of Amazon into car buying. And now, another huge retail company has decided to jump in… but in a way that dealers may be overlooking. Walmart recently launched a used-car buying service in partnership with CarSaver, which offers vehicle shoppers a one-price model. Consumers can test drive the vehicle and pick it up at a certified dealership. The test launch was so successful that it is now expanding  to 250 stores. On the surface, it sounds rather non-threatening, as dealerships ultimately still retain the sale as a certified dealer. However, every used car purchased through Walmart/CarSaver comes with a lifetime warranty. Why is this an issue? Because Walmart is not only a huge retailer, but also operates as an independent repair facility. There’ll probably be some sort of reciprocity between CarSaver and Walmart to encourage customers who purchased through this program to utilize Walmart’s service facilities. In addition, any large repairs may also be captured by Walmart. The customer isn’t going to think of the dealer as the business they bought the vehicle from – only as the place where they picked it up. They will view Walmart as the “dealership” – even if only in a digital manner. Disruption will continue to increase as these retailers identify further revenue opportunities. Ally Financial has also joined forces with the Walmart/CarSaver program incentivizing customers with gift cards to finance through Ally. There goes even more potential revenue for dealers. Add in the flood of off lease vehicles coming into the used vehicle market over the next few years and you have a triple threat: lower used vehicle prices, lost financing, and lost sales. Every bite and chunk of a consumer’s money taken by a disruptor means less money for your dealership. Deeply discounted vehicles sold through Walmart, potentially serviced through Walmart, with Ally capturing the financing, serves to do only one thing… position the dealership as nothing more than a used car storage facility. And that’s not something dealerships should embrace. Don’t lose your lease returns to an independent or some new retail giant. As a franchised dealer you have many advantages; highly trained technicians, factory parts, etc.  Make sure your used car department is on top of the “end of lease” process, have your service department flag cars that are good for trade-ins, extend your service hours, add a pick-up and delivery service … there are many things you can do to be more competitive in today’s marketplace. Embrace the competition by upping YOUR game! See More

Instagram: Highest Ranking Quotes, Keywords and Hashtags

The Most Instagrammed Quotes And Popular HashtagsScroll through Instagram's epic landscapes, laughing babies, delicious food, and adorable animals for a few minutes and you'll eventually land on an inspirational quote post.In fact, the Instagram hashtag #quoteoftheday has over 12 million posts. And that's just one quote-related hashtag. When you add #quote, #quotes, and #quotestoliveby, that number swells.Reposted from article written by Daniel Wesley — Read more at https://quote.com/blog/most-instagrammed-quotes-popular-hashtags/With all this inspiration being shared online, which ideas resonate with people most? Which quotes get the most likes, inspire the most comments, and are most often shared?We did the math on over 3 million quote posts to find out. Here's what we learned.Instagram's Most Popular Inspirational QuotesTally up the likes on Instagram quotes and you'll find that the most popular saying – with a whopping 215,128 likes – is a simple quote that reminds us all to be a little more selfless."When "i" is replaced with "we" even illness becomes wellness."The second most popular quote also carries the theme of selflessness and caring for others: "If you need me, call me. I don't care if I'm sleeping, having my own problems, or angry with you. I'll be there for you."    The rest of the top 10 quotes support the idea that we're all in this together – for better or, at least one quote believes, for worse. "It's funny how people can apologize and then go right back to doing the same sh*t."It makes sense that so many of the top quotes revolve around relationships, our treatment of others, how others treat us, and, by extension, our overall happiness. After all, Americans are pretty obsessed with happiness – to the degree that some experts believe is detrimental to our psychological well-being.The Most Popular Instagram Quotes, by State (Interactive)"Try to be a rainbow in someone's cloud," Vermont residents say."Say what you mean and mean what you say," Alaska Instagrammer users suggest."Don't live in the past ..." South Dakota residents recommend."Whenever sh*t gets weird this week, remember to find the blessing in the midst of it all," Michigan social media users say.When we tally up popular quotes by state, we find that no two states are the same. Texans are most inspired by a Bible verse excerpt, while West Virginians prefer George Orwell. Wyoming residents favor C.S. Lewis, and North Carolina Instagrammers love Dostoyevsky. When breaking our data down by state, the overall themes of loving, being loved, and seeking happiness are still present. In fact, most quotes talk about believing in yourself, expressing love, speaking the truth, sharing happiness, and treating others well.What Are the Most Popular Quotes Really Talking About?It probably won't surprise you to learn that when we ran 3 million quotes through a filter searching for common words, words that showed up most often were "people" (6.40 percent), "love" (6.35 percent), and "life" (5.75 percent).Other common, and perhaps less expected, words were "teenager" (4.1 percent), "time" (3.0 percent), and "things" (2.6 percent) – though maybe "things" isn't that surprising after all, since it's one of the top 100 most common words in the English language.  Running that same search for the most common phrases reveals "simple reminders," "positive energy," and – a topic that inspires most of us – "falling in love."When Do We Seek Out and Share Quotes on Instagram?When do Instagrammers long for inspiration?When do we yearn to share or seek out words of wisdom?             The answer, it turns out, is midweek. The majority of quotes are posted on a Wednesday or Thursday. Monday and Tuesday also rank relatively high, while Friday and the weekend are the least likely times to find quotes floating around your Instagram feed.  It may be that people post more of everything – not just quotes – midweek on Instagram. Or it could be that Wednesday and Thursday are when we start to see the light at the end of the tunnel of a long workweek and get inspired for the weekend.Popular HashtagsReposted from article written by Daniel WesleySource: https://quote.com/blog/most-instagrammed-quotes-popular-hashtags/See More

5 Auto Warranty and Insurance Tips

With new cars now costing an average of $25,499, it’s important for drivers to protect their investment with a warranty and insurance. But if you’re planning to a buy a car in the near future, you should follow some tips to save money on these protection services. Although warranties and insurance are usually a smart investment, they can often jack up the total cost of ownership (TOC) associated with your car.Powertrain WarrantyWhile most new cars come with a manufacturer’s warranty, such as a four-year or 40,000-mile warranty, you can often purchase additional coverage like a powertrain warranty. This special warranty covers repairs associated specifically with your car’s engine, drivetrain and transmission, which are usually more expensive than other automotive repairs. If your car blows a head gasket, for instance, a powertrain warranty can save you thousands of dollars on replacement services.Drive Less for Cheaper Insurance PremiumsThe amount of miles you drive per year will affect your insurance premiums. Most insurance companies offer low-mileage discounts for drivers who clock 7,500 to 15,000 miles on their odometer per year. By keeping your mileage within this range, you can save 5 percent to 10 percent on your premiums. You can also save money for practicing good driving habits, provided that you have a monitoring device placed in your vehicle.Consider the Car TypeThe type of car you drive will also affect your insurance premiums. Insurance repairs for heavy vehicles are usually more expensive than those for compact and midsize sedans. Therefore, insurance companies charge more for coverage on heavy and large vehicles. As a side benefit, you’ll save money on gas with a small car because of their high fuel-efficiency ratings.Check Maintenance Requirements for WarrantiesCar warranties, especially those offered from third-party companies, typically require drivers to perform scheduled maintenance on their car. If a driver fails to perform the necessary maintenance, his or her claim may be denied. To prevent this from happening, check the maintenance requirements for your car’s warranty. And if something isn’t clear, contact either the dealer from whom you purchased the car or the warranty company for more information.Check Your Credit ScoreFinally, your credit score may affect the cost of car insurance. Although there are a few exceptions, insurance companies in most states are allowed to charge higher premiums to customers with bad credit. If your credit history has inaccuracies or outdated information, resolve them for potential cost-savings benefits on car insurance.Don’t let the high cost of insurance or car repairs send your bank account into the red zone. Follow the tips listed here to save money and protect your investment. They can help you when getting a new car, as well as maintaining your current vehicle.See More
