CMB Automotive Marketing developed the “Break the Beast” campaign, using landing pages, pay-per-click (PPC) advertising, search engine optimization (SEO), retargeting, social media activation, influencer marketing, public relations, and content marketing. It also created product videos and provided event support.

Within four months, PowerStop increased demand in the Ford Mustang category and managed a successful customer engagement live event. It also achieved a click-through rate of over 15% from landing pages, click-through rate of 8% from email campaigns, and 3,500+ new followers on social channels.

Automotive Digital Marketing Agency Hiring Guide

What is an automotive digital marketing agency?

An automotive digital marketing agency helps automotive businesses promote their products and services, increase brand awareness, generate leads, and drive sales through online channels. It serves auto dealers, garages and repair shops, car parts manufacturers and distributors, and international brands. 

Statista reports that the US automotive industry spent $12.42 billion on digital advertising in 2020, and it is expected to rise further as the sector continues to bounce back from the pandemic.

What do automotive digital marketing companies offer?

Automotive digital marketing companies offer digital marketing services tailored specifically to the automotive industry. These include:

  • Consumer research to understand the unique needs of your target audience
  • Competitive analysis to gain insights into your competition’s strengths and weaknesses
  • Search engine optimization (SEO) that optimizes your website to rank higher in search engine results pages (SERPs) for relevant keywords, increasing organic traffic and visibility
  • Pay-per-click (PPC) advertising, creating and managing targeted advertising campaigns on platforms like Google Ads, Facebook, Instagram, and Bing Ads to drive traffic and leads
  • Social media marketing to engage potential customers, build brand awareness, and drive website traffic
  • Content marketing to attract new buyers, establish authority, and improve search engine rankings through valuable and informative content, like blog posts, infographics, and white papers
  • Email marketing to nurture prospects and promote products and services by sending personalized emails
  • Digital public relations to improve and manage online reputation
  • Website development and design, building user-friendly and visually appealing automotive websites optimized for search engines and conversion, ensuring a seamless user experience across devices

How much do automotive digital marketing agencies charge for their services?

An automotive digital marketing agency charges an average of $400 to $10,000 per month. Plus, the top 50 automotive digital marketing companies on DesignRush charge an average of $106 per hour. 19.9% of the companies accept a minimum budget of under $1,000 for a project, and 0.2% accept a minimum of $50,000 per project.

The range of automotive digital marketing agency rates vary due to the following factors:

  • Your business competition: A highly competitive market requires more aggressive and potentially costly marketing efforts. For instance, marketing strategies for a car dealership in New York can be more expensive than in Wyoming, as the former has a highly competitive market.
  • Current marketing position: An automobile without an online presence needs more effort than a well-known automotive company like Ford.
  • Project scope: The more digital marketing services you need, the higher the automotive digital marketing cost.
  • Agency location: Automotive digital marketing agencies in Asia and Eastern Europe charge lower rates due to the standard cost of living compared to US and Canadian agencies.

Why should I hire an automotive digital marketing agency?

You should hire an automotive digital marketing agency because it has specialized industry expertise that can help your business increase brand visibility, the number of high-quality leads, conversion rate, and sales. It also helps your business develop marketing strategies that improve customer relationships and drive maximum return on investment (ROI).

1. Leverage automotive industry expertise

An automotive digital marketing agency specializes in your niche, target audience, and industry. Because of this, it knows how to highlight your product’s benefits and unique features to capture your desired audiences. Additionally, it knows the most profitable platforms for your business by staying up to date with the latest market and industry trends.

In contrast, a regular marketing agency will require extra time to study and understand all these details. It might also miss important information, like the right messaging for your campaign, leading to missed growth opportunities.

2. Get a higher return on investment

Based on the computation by Financial Models Lab, an automotive digital marketer’s salary is $50,000 - $150,000 a year. This doesn’t include the cost of onboarding and training, marketing tools and software, and technological equipment like a camera, mobile phone, and laptop.

On the other hand, an automotive digital marketing agency charges an average of $4,800 - $120,000 annually. Plus, it already has the experience, technology, and skills to achieve your marketing goals in a measurable and scalable manner. As such, you can make data-driven decisions that maximize your return on investment.

One such example is when the online store for Ukranian car accessories Autobaza approached Netpeak to reduce the cost of conversion and increase sales within a limited budget. The automotive digital marketing firm leveraged Google Ads and used the Shopping Campaigns and Smart Shopping Campaigns features. It focused on products with the highest sales results, developing individual campaigns for each.

As a result, Autobaza reduced overall costs by 47.34% and transaction costs by 73.91%. It also increased the number of transactions by 101.82%, income by 133.24%, and return on marketing investment by 772.54%.

3. Strengthen brand awareness

Up to 80% of customers search for a vehicle online. This means that your customer’s journey now starts online. And to be in front of their searches, you need to have a strong online presence.

While you can start building your brand presence with an in-house team, it can take longer than hiring an automotive digital marketing agency. An automotive digital marketing agency already has a streamlined and proven method to increase a brand’s presence online. Plus, it has a robust network of media partnerships that can help further strengthen your brand visibility and reputation.

Moreover, automotive digital marketing agencies can tailor their services to your specific local or international audience.

Take AGA Truck Parts as an example. The client supplies heavy equipment and trucking parts worldwide, but it needed a website that targeted its international clientele and showcased its products. SmartSites conducted thorough industry research, showcased featured product lines, designed and developed an industrially centered website, and translated it into four languages.

Through these efforts, SmartSites increased organic search traffic by 1,057% and total site traffic by 685%.

4. Increase qualified leads, conversion rates, and sales

According to Think with Google, almost 25% of all automotive searches are related to:

  • Maintenance
  • Service
  • Parts

Although most consumers are online, not all will fit your ideal buyer profile. Automotive digital marketing firms make sure to target the leads with a higher chance of buying from your brand by developing strategies based on thorough research, market segmentation, and profiling. This allows it to select the right channels, methods, and audiences to target, driving qualified traffic to your online profiles and physical stores.

Once the agency captures high-quality traffic, it will implement targeted marketing, lead nurturing, and conversion rate optimization strategies. It will also optimize your landing pages and call-to-actions in all your content. This will ensure that leads convert into customers despite a highly competitive market.

5. Improve customer relationships

With consumers spending at least 14 hours on average searching for a vehicle, online presence is crucial to developing customer relationships. However, doing this can be resource-heavy and time-consuming, especially for small automotive businesses.

An automotive digital marketing agency can help nurture your customer relationships by providing an omnichannel experience via social media, website, email, and other marketing channels. It can also enhance your customer’s experience by optimizing your website, creating mobile-friendly content, and crafting highly engaging videos for both traditional and online marketing.

Plus, the agency can help you develop customer loyalty programs to further increase customer lifetime value.

A good way to illustrate this is when BMW partnered with Crafted for the “Joy is BMW” campaign. The agency developed a homepage takeover for the client on MSN and slate.com. Each channel had its own set of unique interactive and dynamic content tailored to its specific type of audience. Some of these include an iPhone app that allows the user to control a BMW like a paintbrush and a web app that lets users build their own BMW.

As a result, BMW increased site traffic by 41% from Slate and site traffic by 37% from MSN. It also reached over 800,000 site visitors during the campaign.

How do I find the best automotive digital agency for my business?

You can find the best automotive digital marketing agency for your business by following these steps:

  1. Define your project scope: Identify your marketing goal and long-term business objective by hiring an automotive digital marketing agency.
  2. Set your budget: Understand the average rates for each type of service, correlate rates with agency location, and run an internal audit focusing on your digital marketing goals and expected return on investment.
  3. Do your research: Check if the agency has been featured and recognized for its automotive digital marketing projects. Read reviews, testimonials, case studies, and awards.
  4. Assess its expertise: Look for companies that have delivered tangible results using their automotive digital marketing strategies. Focus on those experienced in working with your specific audience and niche.
  5. Study its tech and software: Understand which marketing tools are compatible with your current marketing strategies and channels. Look also for certifications, like Google Partner and Meta Business Certified Agency.
  6. Send a request for proposal (RFP): Create a brief covering target audiences, marketing goals, marketing channels, budget range, and timeline. Send this with your RFP.
  7. Conduct an interview: Focus on culture fit, management style, business ethics, and overall corporate culture. Also, determine how the agency explains its plan for your business — this will tell you its level of expertise and familiarity with your industry.
  8. Choose your agency: Prioritize the company that best aligns with your specific needs, goals, and values. Choose one that is data-driven, transparent, professional, and responsive. Also, discuss pricing and contract terms as well as project management style.
  9. Onboard your chosen partner: Determine the agency's access to your online channels and give it the necessary login credentials.
