MOTOR SALES - THE NEW HYBRID MODEL 

The pandemic accelerated the digital purchase experience for many motor customers. As we leave the pandemic behind, we’re seeing a combined online & in dealership buying process emerging.

ONLINE CONSIDERATION

Consumers are now becoming much more “self-informed” through visiting multiple websites on their car purchase journey. 24* digital touchpoints are now involved in making a car purchase decision. These touchpoints include seeking third-party reviews as well as manufacturers & dealership branded content.

DEALERSHIP CONVICTION

Offline activities still play a vital role in car purchases. Consumers will visit dealerships to consider their researched, short list of cars in person. They also look for reassurance from the dealership brand & salesperson they interact with.

CONNECT WITH CAR BUYERS AT ALL PARTS OF THEIR JOURNEY

We can help you reach online car researchers, drive footfall to your show room or even create a state-of-the-art virtual dealership.

Case Studies


Radio Advertising Works...
But don’t just take our word for it...

  • City Cabs is at the heart of the community, we've gotten people home safely for over 90 years! We've always found that Hits Radio Advertising is the most powerful and effective way to reach that community. In terms of service, we couldn't be happier - we've always had a great relationship with the whole team.

    Kyle Boggie, Marketing Manager, City Cabs

  • Hits Radio Advertising has been fantastic for my business during the more than 20 years we’ve been on-air, consistently generating new customers for us. Putting it simply, advertising on the radio with Hits Radio Advertising WORKS.

    Gordon Burgess, Owner, The Bed Shop
  • I have used Hits Radio Advertising with a number of clients and am always incredibly happy with the results it delivers and the excellent support and service we receive. I also find Hits Radio Advertising excellent value compared to other traditional media options and radio continues to work incredibly well for us in this digital age.

    We monitor enquiry levels very closely with all clients and Forth always delivers on our key objectives in all campaigns – I would thoroughly recommend Hits Radio Advertising to any business thinking of using radio.

    Craig Simpson, Managing Director, Jigsaw Media

  • In the past I committed the company to a very heavy newspaper campaign that previously worked well, but over the last five years the readership dwindled.

    I initially tried other radio stations in Glasgow primarily due to their costs being less than Hits Radio Advertising, but they didn't work. I was approached by the Sales Team and I took a chance on their recommendations.

    We immediately received a 50% increase in our online activity with Hits Radio Advertising being the only change in our marketing for this period. The increase can only be down to them! The Hits Radio Advertising Sales Team are great with their advice and they care about the results.

    Thank you.

    Mark Watson, Owner, Advanced Windows
  • When planning a radio campaign we look for creative ideas that will enhance our brand amongst our target audience and deliver excellent results.

    The Hits Radio Advertising team understand our key objectives and always come back with innovative ideas and a range of scripts. We have seen a significant rise in the traffic to our inward investment website through the sponsorship of the drive time and home run shows for Choose Lanarkshire.

    The team are great to work with, from the Senior Account Manager to the Creative and Digital team, I have always found them professional, organised and committed to achieving our goals.

    Lynn Gow, Marketing Officer – North Lanarkshire Council
  • From Start to Finish it’s always been a pleasure working with Hits Radio Advertising.

    We do notice a difference in quality when working with Hits Radio Advertising compared to other companies, from service, to campaign delivery; no request is ever ignored and nothing ever seems too much trouble.

    The results speak for themselves, we couldn’t be happier with the outcomes we’ve achieved this year by marketing with Hits Radio Advertising, from invaluable data to website traffic, to in-store footfall, it all comes together to enhance our brand and company presence in Glasgow and the West.
