3 strategies to use in automotive digital marketing

The automotive industry is a particularly niche market to do marketing in but it doesn’t have to be difficult. Automotive digital marketing can be effective with these three marketing strategies: SEO, PPC and Social media marketing.


SEO is the number one method most businesses in any industry utilise to grow their traffic organically. If you do it right, the fruits of your efforts will be long-term.

SEO is a combination of some very crucial processes: keyword research and strategy, interlinking and building your backlinks, the technical aspect of SEO and SEO content. If these processes are done right, then you increase your ranking on Google reaching the first page on SERPs.


Pay-per-Click (PPC) is a form of advertising where you bid on the best keywords; if someone clicks on one of your ads then you pay a small price on that. It is worth investing in PPC as it drives the targeted traffic to your website and most digital marketing campaigns incorporate PPC.

For a business in the motor industry, if PPC is effective:

PPC needs skill and patience. It can considerably increase your website traffic – especially if combined with a strong SEO strategy that can surpass competition and drive growth.
