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

Here's a handy comparison chart of typical online marketing strategies that we think are vital to improving your paid search ROI, 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.

Automotive Online Marketing ActivityAutomotive Digital Marketing AgencyNon-automotive Marketing or Advertising Agency
Strategies to be found for "long tail" search, or search terms using 3 or more words, in PPC campaigns:
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.
Google Product Listing Ads or PLAs: PLAs are usually very cost-effective and have a high click-through rate. There are various ways to structure PLA campaigns to reach the right consumers through brand or part function or other customized strategies. (In fact we recently held a webinar revealing very effective PLA strategies.) Non-automotive search agencies may not be familiar with automotive brand names or part function, in order to properly optimize PLA campaigns.
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 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.
