We may be able to find ways to improve your ROI or organically increase your sales of auto parts.

In the aftermarket, online marketing is critical to reach today's auto, marine and motorcycle shoppers

...More than 4 out of 5 automotive enthusiasts begin their search online using Google, Bing and Yahoo. That's why automotive PPC is important!
...Consumers are constantly connected: they move effortlessly from computer to tablet to phone and your Internet marketing should, too.
...Enthusiasts use the Internet to research products and make a decision where to buy, as well as which brand to buy.
...Manufacturers can benefit from Internet marketing as much as retailers. PPC lets manufacturers control their own branding message.

Automotive SEO Company, Sell More Auto Parts Online:

Sell auto parts? We can create effective organic search campaigns to drive more sales to your website. Reach buyers as they're shopping and making buying and brand decisions. It's important to develop page content in the context of what consumers are searching for, so we pay close attention to long tail keywords, like part type or make, model and year. You've probably heard "content is king" but context of a search is a close second (maybe context is the queen?). You want your product pages to show up for high purchase intent searches.

Automotive Aftermarket SEO for Manufacturers:

Reach shoppers making buying decisions by using effective organic search marketing and sell direct or send them to your dealers. Well over half of all auto parts & accessories buyers visit manufacturer websites to do research before buying a product. Bring your new products to market quickly and create consumer demand and pull-through sales. Online marketing lets you take control of your brand.

Search Marketing for Race Tracks/Events:

Be found on search engines and increase ticket sales. SEO can be more effective than traditional media buys such as radio or TV advertising. We also specialize in Facebook, Twitter and other types of social marketing to reach your fans' friends and expand your online organic reach. We utilize JSON-LD code and schema so Google recognizes events, times and ticket sales, and and displays these important things for search activity, often in the Google Knowledge Graph (also known as Position Zero).

Automotive SEO for Franchisors & Buying Groups:

Drive sales to your retail outlets with Internet marketing based on geographic location using local search optimization. Increase the value of your buying group or franchise brand and help your retailing partners be stronger competitors in today's changing online marketplace. We work with franchise websites, and we've worked with individual franchisee websites to increase visibility for local and mobile search results. We can work directly with franchisees or we can work through the main franchise or buying group office.






Conventional vs. automotive SEO companies: What's the difference?

Here's a handy comparison chart of typical online marketing strategies that we think are vital to improving your search results, and increase your visibility and sales. Feel free to ask us questions about this list, or keep it in mind when you talk to any digital marketing agency that specializes in paid search, whether you're talking to us or another Google Partner agency.

Strategies to be found for "long tail" search, or search terms using 3 or more words for auto aftermarket SEO:
Aftermarket shoppers usually use long tail (3 or more words) keywords. Examples: vehicle submodel, year/make/model, market segment, or part function, like "2012 Mustang cold air intake" or "Duramax diesel exhaust kit." Conventional agencies not familiar with the automotive aftermarket probably don't understand these long tail searches terms, or may not know the differences in generations of car/truck models that use different types of engines.
Retargeting/remarketing campaigns: We often recommend setting up targeted remarketing/retargeting campaigns to reach enthusiasts who have been in specific sections of your website. For example, a remarketing campaign for exhaust kits; getting more precise you could display remarketing ads for F-150 kits to shoppers who looked at those types of kits but displaying ads for Silverado exhaust would be a waste. Search agencies not experienced in the differences in year/make/model fitment, in part function, or in market segment, may not recognize the importance of being very targeted to automotive enthusiasts. These agencies will often recommend one retargeting campaign across your entire website, missing a big opportunity to be more effective.
Be familiar with automotive industry trends and use these trends in online marketing: Aftermarket industry trends are important, especially new products. Every year you'll find us at the SEMA Show, the AAPEX Show or the PRI Show, digging into trends or browsing the new products section. PPC or SEO companies from outside the automotive aftermarket may not realize the importance of these trends in marketing, and may not be aware of these annual industry trade shows.
