What does this mean for your parts and service department?
73% of adults in the United States use YouTube, so the chances of your customers using YouTube are high. Make the most of this opportunity and show up where your customers are already engaging.
Adding a video marketing strategy that is specific to your service and parts business can help you build on the value of your OEM certified service center. This will help you standout and stop losing out to independent shops or national chains.
Capture Customers with Video
To capture prospective service customers, create video content that is focused on car repair and maintenance and provide information on what customers can expect by using your service center.
Consumers are concerned with quality, and dealerships win when it comes to quality parts and knowledgeable staff members. Emphasize your:
- Automotive service expertise
- OEM service tech certifications
- Quality OEM parts
To entice customers to choose your dealership for service.
Targeting for Conversion
YouTube is the #1 destination for watching auto-related content. With YouTube targeting, you can take advantage of high-volume traffic and target consumers who are in-market for vehicle service or parts.
Once these viewers are identified, your videos will be shown to customers who are currently in the process of selecting a service center.
