Be prepared for your customers with video

It used to be said that a “good salesman always has a pen.” Nowadays it is said that a good salesman always sends video—of the customers “dream vehicle.”

YouTube is the second largest search engine, with 4 billion views per day!

By using AutosOnVideo you can build YOUR brand as well as that of the dealership.

CMYAuto is a easy to use video app that allows you to shoot segmented video, brand your self and the dealership and show the customer exactly what they are looking for: video of their dream vehicle.

Your Customers use Video.

You use Video.

Think about your experience with video when on FaceBook or YouTube. You look for short, interesting videos about the topic you are interested in. If the video is misleading or doesn’t show you exactly what you think it’s going to show, you exit the video quickly.

Your customers are doing the same with you.

Keep your videos short, simple and to the point. Visit AutosOnVideo on YouTube  to see several great examples of short videos that highlight the best points of a vehicle.

Thanks for your time, keep shooting video, and have a great day!

Social media, YouTube videos driving how automotive marketing executives plan campaigns

DETROIT — Social media, YouTube videos and other digital advertising platforms are now driving how automotive marketing executives plan their campaigns, a panel of automotive marketing executives said today.

Digital marketing has long supplemented mainstream advertising on traditional mediums such as television, print publications and radio. But the explosion of digital media consumption and mobile access to content has forced automakers to change how they pitch their products.

“If our agency comes with a TV spot first, that’s the wrong way to go. They have to show us the digital ideas first and the TV comes at the end — supplementary,” said Trudy Hardy, vice president of marketing for BMW North America.

Executives from Ford’s ad agency and from Nissan North America in a panel discussion at the Automotive News World Congress today also said that digital advertising drives much of the decision-making when crafting campaigns. Mark LaNeve, COO of Global Team Ford, says the agency has already adopted a “digital first” philosophy to help Ford keep up with its customers, who are already far ahead of all marketers.

More than 50 percent of Team Detroit’s employees work primarily on digital initiatives, LaNeve said. Other digitally focused practices at the agency include a global analytics practice and installing a digital-first planning and measurement system for Ford’s regional dealer ad groups.

LaNeve says traditional media is still important, but digital media consumption has made the traditional notion of the purchase funnel all but obsolete.

“For years we’ve organized and budgeted where tier one was national for the brand, Tier 2 was regional and in support of the dealer ad groups and Tier 3 was individual dealer advertising,” LaNeve said. “The customer doesn’t really receive digital media the way they do traditional media. They engage digital media, they consume it on their own terms and timetables and it’s non-linear — the jump from watching a video to locating a vehicle to building and pricing a car to e-mailing their dealer.”

Nissan is also adopting an approach similar to Team Ford’s digital first” at its new agency, Nissan United, said Jose Munoz, chairman of Nissan North America.

He says digital content gives marketers more creative freedom to tell different stories about a new product simultaneously.

“The name of the game is not whether you go [into digital] or not,” Munoz said. “It’s how you go there, how you get there and how many resources for this vs. other channels.”

Online Adults in Higher Income Households Post and Share Videos

In a recent survey by Pew Internet & American Life Project  younger adult Internet users are twice as likely to post and share videos online than their older counterparts. Fully 41% of 18-29 year-old Internet users and 36% of 30-49 year-old Internet users post and share videos online, compared to 18% of internet users 50 and older. Online adults living in higher income households (annual income of $75,000 or more) are also particularly like to post or share videos online when compared with those in household with annual incomes below $50,000.

How Video was Used in the Past

Well, up until now there really wasn’t an easy-to-use and inexpensive way to provide video, especially of pre-owned vehicles. Sure, a dealer could hire the local TV station to shoot video in the station’s “down time” at a reduced rate. Have you looked at those rates? Some reduced rate. You could hire a local videographer to come to your store, shoot some video and then take it back and edit it only to return with a big bill and video that would be outdated in no time.

Now AutosOnVideo has changed the industry standard for both new and pre-owned vehicles by providing unlimited Video for a monthly rate. By using dealers are able to give consumers what they want—videos of vehicles they are interested in that they can view, post, and share in the same way they view, post, and share all the other videos that hold their interest.
