Successful marketing requires five crucial components: specific customer targeting, full personalization, customized communication channels, a structured follow-up strategy, and effective measurement of results.
There is only so much time in every day and despite the best of intentions, managing the entire outbound marketing strategy internally at dealerships can prove to be extremely challenging.
Our track record demonstrates that we will exceed your expectations.
Currently partnered with over 50 Canadian car dealers from varying automotive brands, our relationship with our clients allows their staff and management to remain focused and productive on running their departments, while we handle the complications of marketing campaign development & delivery.
In the event of inevitable staff or management turnover, our clients’ marketing strategies are never disrupted. Once new additions to client teams are added, we are happy to provide support and training to ensure everyone is up to speed.
Ultimately, we want to help dealers and their staff by maximizing the value of their own time and their customer data in order to increase business and develop stronger relationships with their customers.
- Measure our client support response time in minutes, not hours or days.
- No additional software or software training requirements.
- Simple month-to-month pricing; no contracts or long-term commitments.
