What Is

Automotive Paid Search?

Pay-per-click automotive ads appear at the top of search results for everyone to see. These ads, when clicked, lead shoppers straight to your digital showroom—your dealership website.

The concept is simple, but reality can be trickier. Paid search in the automotive industry involves intense competition around keywords and crowded markets. You want a digitally savvy team that can deliver real and measurable results for clients—and that’s what we do best.

Many of our competitors have 100+ accounts per specialist, but we know that just won’t cut it. With no more than 27 to 35 accounts per specialist, we can give your PPC campaigns some more T.L.C.! You need a high-touch, highly managed service to compete in the big leagues.

We allocate keywords based on where the user is in the shopping process, whether they’re researching or ready to buy. Whether they’re searching “Honda SUVs” or “Honda dealerships near me,” our tiered bidding will help you cover the ground you need to drive more relevant traffic to your site.

It’s just as important to target specific locations. With relevant keywords and locations, we can help you drive incremental new business from shoppers at every level of the marketing funnel.
