The 2017 Automotive Website Awards honored 37 of the best automotive digital marketing companies and one individual for their automotive websites and technology.
More than 200 industry leaders were in attendance during an event that coincided with last week’s National Automobile Dealers Association Convention.
“This year’s lineup impressed our team and showed true innovation. We are honored to hand out awards to these deserving companies,” award organizers said.
The individual honored was Cory Mosley, who was the recipient of the 2017 AWA Lighthouse Award. The AWA Lighthouse award recognizes an individual who has achieved greatness in the automotive community.
The seven categories for the 2017 AWAs included websites, sales process, rising stars, social media, website merchandising, marketing solutions and fixed operations.
Among the award winners was LotLinx, which was recognized for the LotLinx TURN product. The accolade marked third year in a row that LotLinx has been recognized with an AWA.
“It's an honor to again be recognized as the best tool in the market helping car dealers maximize their digital ad spend,” LotLinx founder Len Short said. “We’re constantly striving to build products that empower dealers to take control over their digital sales. Being at the forefront of the movement to put dealers in the driver’s seat when it comes to digital marketing is thrilling.”
Brian Pasch, founder of PCG Companies and sponsor of the AWA, added, “I've long been impressed with the dedication LotLinx has shown when it comes to improving the ease with which dealers can effectively market and turn their entire inventory. The LotLinx solution simplifies VIN-specific advertising on Google, Facebook, and hundreds of automotive shopping and research portals, providing insights and optimization in one easy-to-use platform.”
