9 Clouds has launched a new digital resource designed specifically for automotive dealership marketers. Grade your digital activities now, and get an immediate email report card. 


Is it working? It’s the black-or-white question that no digital marketer can answer plainly.

Digital marketing platforms typically firehose marketers with performance data. It’s quickly overwhelming. Plus, with changing algorithms, spam filters, and marketing regulations, how can you tell if your marketing efforts are actually good

Month-over-month and year-over-year reports will help your dealership stay on track. Even with consistent results, though, it’s easy to lose track of where your dealership lines up with the rest of the automotive industry. 

Gain Insights for Your Essential Marketing Activities

Dealership marketers like you can now use the new Automotive Marketing Grader from 9 Clouds to see exactly how you’re doing in four essential areas: 

Best of all — it’s fast! Grade any of these activities, and you’ll get an immediate report card for each one sent to your email inbox. You’ll see your stats right next to stats from third-party resources as well as our own client results. 

You will also have the opportunity to request a live evaluation of your marketing efforts. 

This launch is the culmination of nearly a year of work from our independent team of automotive marketing professionals. It was tough! We first determined the most important metrics to measure for each service, and then we scoured the Internet to find the most reliable third-party industry benchmarks for those metrics. 

To add some perspective to these benchmarks, the Grader also includes our own in-house research based on real-world campaigns, emails, and web content. Our data comes from real dealerships from multiple brands throughout North America. 

Try the Grader and Answer, “Is It Working?”

If you run ads on Facebook or Google, send marketing emails, or build pages on your dealership’s website, you will find this tool extremely valuable. 

Plus, the Automotive Marketing Grader is free to use. Use it for one or multiple dealerships. Send it to your colleagues, and help us spread the word. 

As with any new digital resource, we’re going to keep improving it! If you have any questions or suggestions for this tool, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
