Close to 93 million people made online purchases during Black Friday in 2019. Black Friday weekend, including Cyber Monday, has become the most popular sales event in the U.S., and that’s due in large part to one thing; marketing. Every year, companies ramp up their digital marketing strategies to gain the most sales during Black Friday weekend. Digital marketing has become the most effective tool in online retail, and dealerships can reap those benefits.
Why is Digital Marketing Essential?
Most consumers do their shopping online, especially during the holiday season. They spend most of their time online which means you need to grab their attention fast. Your digital marketing strategy should reflect that.
What kinds of tools can you use as part of a digital marketing strategy?
Paid Ads – Google ads and social media ads can help you get out in front of customers fast and knowing how to target parts customers is key.
SEO – Ranking for the right keywords in search results can give you a leg up on your competitors during the holiday season.
Email Campaigns – Sending out emails to the right customers can generate excitement and engagement. It’s also a great way to win back abandoned cars, and keep customers who purchased on Black Friday coming back year-round.
These are just a few of the things that can give you a leg up in your Black Friday promotions.
Capitalize on Auto Parts Marketing
Not a lot of dealers focus on auto parts marketing during Black Friday and Cyber Monday. More often than not, vehicle sales and promos are the highlights during the holiday season at the average dealership. What about auto parts? Marketing your parts department can be tricky. There are three ways that your dealership can deal with its digital marketing, and each has its pros and cons. You can choose to handle your dealership’s marketing internally, outsource your marketing to a generic marketing agency, or you can go to a marketing agency that specializes in OEM parts marketing.
