Parker Marine, and its dealers are NOT leveraging the web to their advantage.
Except...in this Internet age, they need to get a little more sophisticated. It doesn't take much to add features to a web site that displays the closest dealer when you enter a zipcode. Even a simple flat file that lists the dealers by State would be nice.danielb":tysf8d27 said:All you have to do is request a brochure (as I did two days ago) and low and behold the my local Parker Dealer (White Water Marine-over 60 miles away) called to market me. They were very warm and when they found out that I own a Parker the sales pitch changed to maybe we can service the boat etc. So Parker is building a data base and feeding leads to their dealers I guess.
Not a bad way to conduct business.
