  • Automotive Internet Media

-mosmFgc_400x400Today many Hispanic auto shoppers look to the web when making a vehicle purchase. However, many dealership websites do not offer a solution for Hispanic auto shoppers.Automotive Internet Media (AIM) creates and manages websites for auto dealers, but recently developed a one-stop dealership website for both auto shoppers who speak English and Spanish without leaving the main dealership site.Many dealer sites have plug-ins that can do a rough English-Spanish translation but that's not really speaking directly to Hispanic auto shopper. The AIM site pages, content and images are built for a specific audience. With a click the site changes from English to Spanish or vice versa.Many dealerships are intensifying their pursuit of the Hispanic car buyer.  Sales to the Hispanic market is booming. AIM's responsive website platform was built from the ground up to be a multilingual site. The banners, buttons, images, inventory pages and informational pages are all original content for each language. Because of the nature of changing vehicle descriptions, a language conversation tool is in place to translate every description dynamically only for the vehicle detail pages. This platform can be set up for other languages.
