HookLogic Integrates Polk Intelligence to Accelerate Auto Sales With Lead to Show 2.0

Targeted Test-Drive Incentives Lift Close Rates by 20 Percent

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Feb 9, 2012) - Based on a proven track-record of success with automotive dealers, HookLogic has worked with Polk, the leading automotive marketing intelligence firm, to integrate Polk's predictive lead scoring and segmentation data into version 2.0 of its Lead to Show solution for automotive dealers. The arrangement enables HookLogic's Lead to Show 2.0 customers to leverage Polk's data to ensure that online and offline incentives are hyper-targeted to the leads that are most likely to buy. The solution has delivered an average 20 percent increase in close rates and $185 cost per incremental vehicle sale to the dealers that have utilized Lead to Show 2.0 to date.

According to David Metter, president of automotive for HookLogic, "We've worked with Polk for over 3 years, and results from our joint campaigns with automotive dealers have been unprecedented. It was only natural for us to build Polk market insight into our solution set, and our customers couldn't be happier."

Lead to Show 2.0 leverages Polk's sophisticated predictive models to assign every internet lead a score based upon a number of factors, including lead source, in-market timing, past buying behaviors and household demographic data. Once scored, HookLogic manages and automates the delivery of targeted, limited-time offers, such as gift cards, which can only be redeemed in person at dealerships. By ensuring incentives are only delivered to the highest-scored leads, dealerships can keep their costs in line while significantly increasing their sales. For more information visit:

"It's another powerful way to integrate Polk's lead scoring and market intelligence solutions to provide incremental sales to dealers," he said.
