First-time automobile buyers are tech-savvy, using brand sites to do their first round of research, according to Jean Marc Leclerc, vice president of sales and marketing at Honda Canada. eMarketer’s Sean Creamer spoke to Leclerc about the role of chatbots as first-time car buyers are exploring their favorite products online and about the automaker's uses of social media.
eMarketer: Where do you see opportunities for growth in the automotive advertising space in the coming year?
