How 9 Clouds Services Have Transformed One Dealership’s Online Presence
The road to a car purchase is increasingly taking place online. The team at 9 Clouds has identified 23 touchpoints customers follow on their car buying journey – and 18 are digital.
A strong digital presence is vital in finding your customers where they are already spending time and shopping. Digital marketing allows your dealership to market to the people interested in buying from you at the right time in their car buying journey.
Increasing Online Presence
Volvo Cars Memphis wanted to increase its online presence as a way to drive an increase in sales. The team was not doing any digital marketing and knew there were many opportunities to explore.
How do you go from no digital marketing to a well-rounded strategy that drives customers to your dealership?
The Volvo Cars Memphis team knew they needed a digital marketing partner that would help guide a strategy to increase their sales and bring in more qualified leads.
After discussing the many services offered by our team, a plan was tailored to fit Volvo Car Memphis’s needs.
Our work with Volvo Cars Memphis began in March of 2020 – a potentially risky time to go all-in with digital marketing! Many companies were delaying or ending advertising as businesses and schools shut down across the country – so conventional wisdom might have said “hold off on starting digital marketing.”
Fortunately, the team at Volvo Cars Memphis recognized the value of marketing online as the pandemic pushed buyers to shop digitally. Our team was able to work with the dealership to craft an effective marketing strategy that fit the situation.
The Impact of Our Partnership
