How 9 Clouds Helped One Dealership See Big Marketing Results in Just 3 Months:

improve digital presense

The Challenge

The leadership team at a rural Chevrolet dealership came to 9 Clouds with a very common problem in the automotive industry: the dealership was spending a lot of money with its traditional agency — but seeing lackluster results online.

The team wanted better return on investment (ROI) for their digital efforts with an agency that would continue to provide the personalized service they were receiving from their public relations (PR) agency.

 

The Solution

9 Clouds was the perfect fit to work with this group. We believe in transparent services based on data, which meant they would be offered insight into all the work we were doing — including exactly where their marketing dollars were going.

In June 2017, 9 Clouds took over:

  • Online lead tracking and digital strategy
  • Monthly analytics and digital iMR submissions
  • Email marketing
  • Search engine optimization (SEO)
  • Online content marketing (including blog posts and landing pages)
  • Google AdWords and Facebook advertising
  • Social media support

The dealership team worked with its 9 Clouds project manager and creative strategists to determine the best use of these services. The dealership followed our recommendations, implementing an inbound marketing plan.

 

The Results

The rural Chevy dealership forged a partnership with 9 Clouds in a short amount of time, and the store’s trust in our work quickly began to pay off.

In the first three months of our working together, the Chevy store increased:

  • Web traffic by 10%
  • Vehicle detail page (VDP) views by 103%
  • Internet leads by 15%
  • Vehicle sales by 6%

Because inbound marketing builds upon its success over the long term, we believe these stellar results will only continue to improve for the dealership.
