Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/x7kqjx/2013_2014) has announced the addition of the "2013 - 2014 Global Advertising Annual" report to their offering.
The evolution of automotive advertising is leading online auto sites to find new revenue streams and support more ways for users to connect with cars, trucks and motorcycles on their mobile phones and tablets.
The author covers those trends and more in its newest report, the 2013 Automotive Advertising Annual. The 73-page report covers 29 companies in 17 countries with interesting stories about how they are strengthening their businesses.
AutoScout24 in Germany, for example, is growing several new services with promising revenue streams, all in an effort to ensure that it collects more than a crumb of the cake with automotive transactions, including repairs and body work, technical checks of used vehicles, and even auto cleaning. That's going far beyond the traditional listings of used and new cars.
Then there's AutoTrader.co.uk, where mobile devices deliver more than half of all traffic to the site.
And Bilbasen in Denmark, a site owned by the eBay Classifieds Group that had to apologize to dealers for increasing its prices when it was the only game in town but it was too late, because auto dealers had already built their own competitive site.
The report details the strategies and tactics that automotive sites are using and planning to implement in 2014.
