Green Line Automotive's Top 5 Key Takeaways from Google's Think Auto 2023 Event.

Green Line Automotive was thrilled to be invited to Google's Think Auto 2023 Event of automotive enthusiasts and industry experts in Chicago. The event provided us with a golden opportunity to delve deep into the latest trends, innovations, and insights that are shaping the future of the automotive world.

At Green Line Automotive, our passion for sustainability, cutting-edge strategies, and delivering exceptional customer experiences has always driven us forward. Following Google Think Auto 2023, we had 5 key takeaways about what the current and future automotive landscape currently looks like and how this can impact your dealership.

Our Top Google Think Auto 2023 Takeaways

Political Ads: Shifting Landscape and Challenges Ahead

  • In 2024, political ads are expected to surge, leading to increased competition and costs in the advertising space.
  • Green Line Auto Takeaway: To stay competitive in this evolving landscape, you’ll need to be exploring options to boost your advertising budget.

Vehicle Ads and Performance Max Campaigns Unite

  • Exciting news! In September 2023, Vehicle Ads will merge with Performance Max Campaigns (learn more about the transition from vehicle ads to Performance Max here).
  • Green Line Auto Takeaway: To maintain control and optimize our strategies for maximum efficiency, we recommended testing the creation of Performance Max campaigns with inventory feeds as separate entities from current PMax assets. This allows you to better allocate budgets and maintain performance insights separately.

EVs and Hybrids: A Growing Market with Lower Prices

  • Good news for eco-conscious drivers! OEMs continue to expand their EV and Hybrid offerings, and in May 2023, average EV prices dropped by a promising 14% compared to the previous year.
  • Green Line Auto Takeaway: It’ll be important to explore expanded campaigns to tap into the growing demand and availability of electric and hybrid vehicles.

Tackling Income Bracket Challenges

  • Registrations for users making under 100K have seen a significant decline.
  • Green Line Auto Takeaway: To engage this income bracket, we recommend focusing on promoting light vehicles and economy car searches as the best options to boost sales and cater to the specific needs of this audience.
