7 Social Media Ideas for Dealerships Looking to Grow Customers



Auto dealers may struggle to compete with e-commerce sites that describe each car in detail. You may now purchase a vehicle without ever setting foot on a lot. You may shop online, compare options, and even pay. The dealership may only interact with you when you pick up the keys and the vehicle.

The digital era has changed the auto purchasing landscape. As previously said, many clients perform all of their car research online before visiting a dealership. Thus, customers who are unsure or on the verge of making a choice but want a little push in the right direction are reduced. Dealership marketing techniques must evolve to meet the needs of today’s consumers. This interaction is made easier by social media.

People see advertisements on their favorite social networking sites when they use sponsored social media. Customers may learn about the brand and the latest news while interacting with the dealership on social media. If you own an auto dealership, you will need to utilize social media to advertise your business.

1- Use Video

YouTube and other video-sharing platforms are excellent venues for promoting your business to potential customers. You may use shorter snippets on social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. YouTube is an obvious choice. If your dealership hosts a special event, consider using live streaming to educate and encourage your followers to attend.

2- Ask for Reviews

Reviews are taken extremely seriously by today’s online consumers. More positive reviews on social media, including review sites like Google and Yelp, will increase their confidence in learning more about what you can do for them.

3- Engage with Followers

Every social media post doesn’t need to have a commercial purpose. You may post anything that interests your followers, such as community events, employee bios, or the rodent species living in the tree near your job. Consequently, people may start sharing your content even if they aren’t car shoppers.

4- Share Social Media Stories

Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube are used to tell stories. Stories are simpler to develop and use than other social media marketing. Stories are great for introducing new products, promoting sales and community participation, and branding customers’

mobile applications.

5- Use Photos

With the rise of Instagram among millennials and Generation Z, it’s evident that simple pictures may impact car purchasers. Because photos, unlike Instagram Stories, do not expire after a few hours, prospective consumers may browse your account and see photographs of autos they may be interested in.

6- Research All Your Options

Using the appropriate marketing plan to be a successful dealer is critical. Due to the high cost of cars, the decision-making process takes much longer than other purchases. Many auto dealerships waste money on ineffective advertising campaigns that do not result in sales.

In marketing, it is preferable to prioritize quality above quantity. You must do considerable research to develop customized social media marketing tactics that work for your business. Your dealership may be able to get more people to visit its website and make more sales if you use well-researched and effective social media marketing strategies.

7- Offer Social Media Based Promotions and Contests

As stated before, the purpose of social media is to engage consumers by creating meaningful content. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t publicize your discounts. Everyone enjoys a good deal, so promote it. If you want to show your social media followers how much you appreciate them, think about giving them special deals and contests on social media.

Consider using the social media marketing ideas discussed above for better results if you are a car dealer.
