ADP Digital Advertising Provides Access to Real-World Proven Dealer Ad Campaigns
If you have never taken a look at ADP Digital Advertising, then you really should check out the program and all that it offers, and which i have been working on creating for almost 2 years! My objective when I left Courtesy Chevrolet and accepted the Director - Digital Marketing Business Development position at ADP was to take everything me and my team in Phoenix had learned about Search Engine and Display Advertising, build it out and make far better, and then offer dealers all over the USA access to a multi-network, multiple website, multiple search engine program that includes really great advertising creative assets, guidance, management of metrics and campaign optimization for a reasonable cost, and which most individual dealerships could never afford to buy on their own because of each network or website publisher's minimum monthly media buys.
Get the Most Effective Eye Catching, Attention Getting Ads in Automotive Retail
Now, with the proprietary software our ADP Digital Advertising team has created, your store can have exciting attention getting animated Flash based display advertising, formatted in 7 different IAB Standards Compliant sizes. You can also choose from many types of exciting new Click-To-Play Video Ads that leverage the insatiable appetite of consumers for online video content to produce more business for your dealership. ADP places your powerful attention getting ads on thousands of web sites used by in-market car buyers, geotargeted so they only appear when customers who are located in the dealership's primary market area visit the targeted consumer websites. You can see a few examples of ADP's Digital Advertising creative by clicking on the thumbnails to pop them open in their full sized animated glory at www.FordDigital.com.
Tap Into the Power of Behavioral Targeted Advertising
ADP offers Behavioral Targeting campaigns for dealers that provide you with the power to show your dealership ads to people who have visited automotive information sites within the past 30 days that indicate they are thinking or planning on buying a new or used vehicle in the near future. This allows you to show your ads to JUST THE QUALIFIED BUYERS in your area when they visit any of over 500 popular national websites.
Get the Benefits of the Virtual Be-Back Bus
ADP can insert targeting pixels into any dealership website, regardless of who your provider is, that allows us to run Retargeting Campaigns placing your ads in front of anyone who has visited your dealership's web site in the past 30 days... This gives you the ability to generate a "Virtual Be-Back Bus" of returning visitors to your web site. ADP has discovered that dealership website Be-Backs behave a lot like Showroom Be-Backs... Repeat visitors to your dealership's web site are far more likely to convert into a showroom visit, a phone call or a completed web form (lead).
ADP Offers the Only Balanced and Budget Optimized Approach to Dealership SEM Campaigns
Unlike our competitors who are overly dependent on Search Advertising revenue in order to make money, and who will burn through a dealer's Search Advertising budget, no matter how much money the dealer allocates.., ADP proactively manages our Digital Advertising dealer budgets so that the least amount possible is spent in order to get the best and most qualified traffic to the dealer's web sites and campaign landing pages or microsites. ADP assesses each dealer's organic search engine ranking, eliminating key words from paid search advertising campaigns and bid lists, when the dealership already shows in the top 4 search engine results for a key word, we will not use the dealer's own advertising budget to compete with that very same dealer's organic and FREE search engine listings... Unlike some SEM suppliers, we will not turn a dealer's free organic traffic into expensive pay per click traffic, just to make a buck when the dealer isn't looking!
Get Your Very Own Digital Marketing Manager without Hiring a New Employee
Dealers who use ADP Digital Advertising have one account manager and a campaign analyst to track and report everything. Compared to signing dozens of contracts that lock a dealer into a set advertising budget by web site, our dealers have only one contract, get a single invoice for all digital advertising from one supplier. Combine this integrated marketing strategy made easy with no long term commitments and no monthly minimum media buys, and dealers using ADP Digital Advertising have access to Internet advertising powerhouses such as Google, Yahoo!, Specific Media, Jumpstart Automotive media, Kelley Blue Book, Cars.com, eBay Motors, J. D. Power, Consumer Guide, CarAndDriver.com, RoadAndTrack.com, MotorTrend.com, Automobile, Auto, along with over 1,400 other automotive publications online.
Get Access to Multiple Digital Advertising Suppliers without Multiple Contracts
ADP Digital Advertising provides dealers with the ability to move their ad campaigns and online advertising budgets from one network, such as Specific Media or Jumpstart to another network based on performance. Since there are no contracts between the dealership and each network or publisher, advertising and budget allocations can be changed as often as a dealer wants to, without worrying about contracts that lock the dealer into spending money with a specific network or individual web site.
Take advanatge of ADP's Multi-Million Dollar Buying Power
You could say that ADP Digital Advertising is the "Costco" of automotive online advertising! Dealers get the benefits of lower costs from the large national contracts that ADP has negotiated with pricing based on millions of dollars in monthly media buys. You, the dealer, get access to advertising space, geotargeted so you only pay for your local customers to see the ads, professional account and campaign management, and a steady supply of really great advertising creative that is simply not available to dealers from any other digital marketing supplier.
I highly recommend that all ADM members go to Digital Dealer 6, and if you work in a dealership, when you return to work, use your DD#6 registration fee receipt to pay for the first month of ADP Digital Advertising fees.
The 6th Digital Dealer Conference & Exposition will be held at the Mirage, Las Vegas, April 19-21, 2009. The last spring conference in Orlando in April drew over 1,000 attendees and featured 60 exhibitors in almost 100 booths spaces. There were over 540 registered dealers, GMs, Internet Sales Managers, e-Commerce Directors and BDC/CRM Managers, and unlike the NADA Convention and Exposition, every one of them was there to learn more about Internet and technology-related issues, both from speakers and from exhibitors.
Combined, last spring and last fall, there were almost 1,000 dealership attendees at the 4th and 5th Digital Dealer Conferences… every one of them was there to learn more about Internet and technology-related issues, both from speakers and from exhibitors.
We expect 70 to 80 exhibitors and are shooting for over 1,000 attendees in Las Vegas this spring, including 500-plus dealership attendees. We’ve done five of these now and have found the right balance of fulfilling both attendees’ and exhibitors/sponsors’ goals.
As such, you need to have your best shot in knowing how to endure, survive and thrive in these tumultuous times. You need to be in front of your competitors in marketing to prospective and current customers. You need to do this in a way that provides ROI. You need to find out what the best in the business are doing. You need to know what the top minds believe is the best way to approach this market. You need to hear from the top consultants and trainers in the industry. You need to see what the leading edge companies have to offer to give you your best shot. You need…the 6th Digital Dealer Conference & Exposition.
Every speaker submitting a proposal to speak at the April event has been instructed to focus their presentation specifically on How to Endure, Survive and Even Thrive in Tumultuous Times. Whatever their knowledge, whatever their experience, whatever their specific expertise…they will be presenting it with the focus on How to Endure, Survive and Even Thrive in Tumultuous Times.
