Ben Keating – Keating Auto Group
After graduating from Texas A&M University with an honors degree in Engineering in 1995, Ben Keating went to work selling cars at a Ford dealership in Austin. Shortly thereafter, he went to work at his father’s Ford dealership in 1996, where he ultimately became part-owner.

Put Your Marketing Spend
Where It’s Most Effective
Your Money Matters.
Which digital advertising channels are driving more leads? More VDP views? More phone calls? Which mediums are the most cost effective at bringing in leads that sell more cars?
Dealer Insights provides you with powerful information so you can quickly and easily see which vendors and which digital mediums are working the best for you, dollar-for-dollar. No more guessing. No more spending hours trying to calculate what’s working, just the information you need to make decisions, right at your fingertips.
From Your Digital Vendors
Many digital vendors are full of hot air. They will show you all of their reports and tell you how great they are doing for you. They’ll tell you the only way you could be doing better, is to spend more money with them on more advertising. Many dealers end up being held hostage, afraid to make changes because they aren’t able to evaluate the impact a vendor has on their sales.
Dealer Insights gathers and evaluates Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) from each of your digital vendors, let’s you compare them side by side in a format that’s easy to understand, and alerts you when they aren’t measuring up to your expectations.
Know Your Shoppers,
