Cobalt, a business unit of ADP Dealer Services, Inc. and the global leader in digital solutions for automotive manufacturers and their dealer networks, and, the premier car shopping destination, today announced a partnership to deliver insights into consumer behavior and in-market advertising value attribution across all the major types of internet properties visited by automotive shoppers during their shopping process. This will be the first time that the behavior of anonymous in-market consumer behavior will be analyzed across advertising networks, search engines, independent research sites, as well as manufacturer, regional and dealer websites.

In another first, consumer behavior will be analyzed across these properties as consumers interact with different types of branded and unbranded content, not simply measured as clicks or visits. The joint research will to guide marketers understand the advertising value attribution of different content and offers in contributing toward a sale, leveraging Cobalt’s closed loop analytics capabilities. Models developed with these insights will dynamically optimize consumer advertising and website experiences.

The collaboration intends to share its findings with the automotive industry to advance digital marketing practice as well as to inform the design of dynamic consumer experiences and audience acquisition to optimize marketing performance. Other researchers into automotive shopper behavior lack visibility into all of these properties, have limited insight into the content viewed by consumers, and lack a marketing platform able to personalize consumer experiences across properties based upon consumer intent.

According to a Datalogix study, 59 percent of all new vehicle shoppers use during their car shopping experience, providing Edmunds valuable insights into shoppers’ vehicle purchase intent and cross-shopping interest.

Cobalt has built the automotive industry’s most comprehensive warehouse of automotive shopper behavior, observing interactions of millions of shoppers with billions of advertising impressions, over 500 million inventory searches, and the industry’s largest network of dealer and regional websites. Over 85 Cobalt business intelligence professionals research what customer experiences convert to automotive sales and use these insights to guide Cobalt’s dynamic marketing platform and personalized consumer experience engine to serve each consumer with the right content, at the right time, on the right media property and their device of choice to advance their purchase decision.

Edmunds and Cobalt are already collaborating to understand the experience of these shoppers as they go between Edmunds and the Cobalt dealer network. This research has found that consumers who visit both properties purchase at more than three times the rate of the average dealer website visitor. By optimizing consumers’ experiences as they cross properties the companies expect to serve consumers better and significantly improve conversion.

Cobalt and Edmunds will be inviting manufacturers to participate in this initiative, helping manufacturers and their agencies understand the role their audiences and properties play in the overall consumer journey so they can better link their brand marketing execution with consumers’ in-market journeys.

“It is part of our culture to innovate new ways to apply and share our vast and growing collection of car shopping trend data,” said Brian Terr, Vice President of Business Development. “Our collaboration with Cobalt is part of our continuing effort to provide car buyers with a richer and easier shopping experience. Our dealer and OEM partners will also benefit from a better understanding of consumer engagement with their brands and as a result have a greater ability to make more strategic marketing decisions.”

“Cobalt’s prime focus is on how we can improve the auto buyer’s experience to the benefit of the consumer, manufacturer and dealer”, said Max Steckler, VP of Global Advertising Solutions/Business Intelligence. “’s unmatched insights into cross-brand consumer vehicle research combined with Cobalt’s research and dynamic consumer experiences platform will give our clients a profound competitive advantage in serving the rapidly changing automotive consumer.”
