Over the past year, Lithia Motors has incorporated Conquest Automotive’s email solution into its marketing plan. Partnering together with Conquest Automotive, Lithia has been able to show a significant lift in unique conquest sales with a strong return on investment. By emailing “in-market” consumers, Conquest Automotive has developed a low-cost powerful tool that reaches a demographic responding less and less to traditional media. Never before has Lithia had in its marketing arsenal a strategic email tool as we do now with Conquest Automotive. The vast lists of potential new customers are only limited to a dealership’s marketing budget.
I can't even begin to thank you guys at Conquest Automotive for the great year so far. We have a cost per vehicle sold of under $200.00 that makes our ROI the best with any other company's we are currently using. I look forward to a fantastic 2014 with you guys leading the partnership for all my stores. Keep up the good work and let's keep breaking records next year!
Tell your team a big thank you for all the help. I know I can be a royal pain in the butt sometimes. You and I have worked together now for a pretty good bit of time and have enjoyed amazing success with these campaigns both at Group 1, and now at this smaller store, in a smaller market, in rural Alabama. I always told you there was a method to my madness but it wouldn't happen without you, Gabbi, and the rest of your staff. Your team is the best in the business.
Conquest Automotive delivers consumers that are at the bottom of the purchase funnel. Their ROI report goes beyond open and click-through rates and shows our clients what they actually sold off the campaign. In the convoluted digital universe, this transparency is refreshing. Because of the great results our clients have received with Conquest Automotive, we now include them in all our media plans.
The Fox Dealerships have been a very satisfied Conquest Automotive customer for the past 2 ½ years. As the Marketing Director at Fox Dealerships for the past 18 years, I would rank Conquest Automotive as one of the best companies I have worked with. The services they provide combined with the professionalism of the staff are excellent.Most satisfying have been the results: On a $3,000 investment using their Polk E-Mail Program, we recorded 51 sales. The program data is well managed and certifiable so that we are able to determine our R.O.I. easily. I would recommend Conquest Automotive to any company interested in enhancing their sales. It certainly has worked for us.
We have been a Conquest Automotive customer since September 2010 and have consistently seen around a 10% increase in new customers every month. Our cost per car sold averages around $135! The ability to target ‘in-market buyers,’ via email and to reach consumers that live in specific zip codes around my dealership, provides me with comfort knowing that I am advertising to the right consumer at the right time. The overall experience has been great… In fact, we recently signed a deal with Conquest Automotive for 12 months and we increased our monthly spend by over 25%. Keep up the good work, Conquest Automotive team!
