DMEa/Automotive News Webinar: Service Reminders Are Broken! The 5 Pillars of Successful Retention Marketing

Free webinar on Thursday, September 12 at 2 p.m. EDT is designed to prevent wasteful spending on ineffective outdated service marketing and offers new tactics that can dramatically increase service revenue, call and service appointment success, and customer retention
 

Daytona Beach, FL– August 29, 2013 DMEautomotive (DMEa), the science-inspired, results-based automotive marketing leader, announces the seventh in a series of webinars the company is hosting with Automotive News. The sixty-minute webinar, Service Reminders Are Broken! The 5 Pillars of Successful Retention Marketing, provides critical best practices designed to stop dealerships from wasting millions of dollars on ineffective and outdated service marketing tactics that actually contribute to lost service revenue. The webinar takes place on Thursday, September 12th at 2 p.m. EDT.

“Current service reminder marketing programs are based on outdated and broken techniques that focus on old standards of vehicle miles driven, rather than the needs, desires and behaviors of today’s customer -- costing dealers real money in lost customers, ever-increased time between service visits, and lower service to sales conversion,” said Mike Walther, president and CEO of DMEautomotive. “DMEa’s 5 Pillars of Successful Retention Marketing attacks this problem head on and, using real world consumer behavior data as its foundation, provides dealers and OEMs with relevant strategies to dramatically improve customer retention and ramp up service revenue.”

Jim Treece, Industry Editor at Automotive News, will moderate Service Reminders are Broken! The 5 Pillars of Successful Retention Marketing, which also features DMEautomotive’s CMO Mike Martinez and VP of Strategy & Analytics Doug Van SachThe webinar includes:

  • How to target, and segment, customers based on how they behave and what their preferences are
  • Why a full mobile channel strategy is critical to retention, and how to ensure your text, web and email design adapts effectively
  • When to communicate with customers … and why the old ‘miles driven’ standard no longer applies
  • How to target the customers who are most likely to be loyal and spend more
  • How to leverage the power of pre-paid maintenance programs
  • How to move beyond ROI and measure the true value created by your marketing investments.
