KELLEY BLUE BOOK
Monetize Without Disrupting a Trusted Experience.
User Experience Design
Kelley Blue Book’s brand perception rivals that of other top brands in the United States, such as Coca-Cola, Disney, and Nike.
Further, independent studies have validated that consumers use words like “credibility”, “integrity”, “accuracy” and “reliability” to describe the Blue Book brand.
These attributes are even more valuable since so few automotive brands are described in such terms.
A great relationship yielded a vast amount of work for the Trusted Resource Company.
