Targeted Advertising


In an industry where quantifying results from digital advertising can be complex, Hyundai of St. Augustine and CDK set out to test and prove the best digital strategy for driving new vehicle sales. Through close collaboration, in-depth analysis and seamless execution, we were able to create and test different ideas—and in the process, uncovered insights that changed everything about how Hyundai of St. Augustine markets online.

Vehicle compare

Customers now have two ways to easily compare vehicles in your inventory – right within your website.
• Compare a single vehicle: On the Vehicle Search Results page, customers can “pin” a single vehicle to the top of the results page and compare that vehicle to others as they scroll down the list of results.
• Compare multiple vehicles: From that same Vehicle Search Results page, customers can select and compare up to three vehicles side-by-side in a new comparison window. There they can highlight differences and even save selected vehicles.


Give customers a new, easy way to search your inventory.

Install the new search bar up in your website header, and your customers can quickly search your inventory by typing in a few keywords, such as model name, year or even color. They’ll go right to matching inventory on a Vehicle Search Results page!


Window Sticker / 100K Warranty Program Updates

Hyundai Window Stickers were added earlier this year. This enhancement allowed an online shopper to view, save, and print the actual Hyundai Window Sticker.

Now, we have added a link to the window sticker and 10yr/100k warranty icons to the Vehicle Search Results in addition to the Vehicle Details Page – giving consumers the ability to access both icons from each page. The goal is to improve and simplify the customer experience.
