Automotive brands: Meet your automotive digital PR agency

Long gone are the days when brand awareness was achieved solely through print media. In a nutshell, digital PR is a technique that brands employ to grow their businesses and establish an online presence. 

As an SEO company, we have an extensive wealth of expertise in running successful digital PR campaigns for a range of niche industries, including the automotive industry. 

This involves producing news stories or studies published in your name. High authority websites within the automotive industry will then choose to publish your study/story, causing them to link back to your site. These links act as votes of confidence that you are a trustworthy and credible source of information. 

At Reboot, we can design campaigns to meet your individual business goals. We recognise that no two campaigns or businesses are the same, so every time we work on a campaign for you, we will ensure they are bespoke, highly personalised and relevant to your business needs. 

 

The benefits of digital PR in the automotive industry

 

Increase visibility online

Businesses can benefit from digital PR by boosting their online presence, thus attracting new clients and business opportunities. With more and more people turning to the internet for information, a brand’s digital presence can make or break a company. The more people that can be directed to your site through organic traffic, the greater chance you have of securing those all-important conversions, producing a greater return on investment (ROI). 

For each backlink you earn, your online visibility is further enhanced. This is because it shows search engines that you are a trustworthy, reputable source of information. Therefore, you are likely to rank higher on SERPs. If these links come from authoritative sites with high domain authority, your ranking will be boosted further. 

Over time, you will become the ‘go to’ company for automotive enquiries and help you outrank your competitors.

Become a thought leader in the industry

A way to increase visibility and create trust with your potential customers is to establish your company as a thought leader. 

A thought leader is the informed opinion leader within their field of expertise. They become a trusted source of information and inspire people with innovative, forward-thinking ideas. 

At Reboot, we can help you achieve this by sharing exclusive data and findings from the latest development within the automotive field, or presenting new angles to breaking news stories. 

If Google starts to see you as an expert in your industry, it’ll be more likely to place you high up on the SERPs. When potential customers start searching for keywords related to the automotive industry, it will be your name that they see first; not your competitors. 

Enhance your reputation

If you already have great online visibility, it may be time to focus on your brand reputation. You need to be able to communicate your core messaging through your campaigns so the audience can not only see who you are, but what you’re about. 

Digital PR can help you mould how your customers see you, by helping your company appear in their favourite, relevant automotive publications. Once you establish yourself as an expert within the industry, this will increase your level of authority and trustworthiness. This sends a positive message to Google and other search engines that you are a credible source of information and further increase your ranking on SERPs. 

Monitor campaign success easily

With any campaign, it is important to know whether it is working and the degree to which it is meeting the key aims and objectives set out in the beginning. 

You will likely need to be able to judge the level of profitability, how visible your brand is to online customers and the degree to which you have reached your target audiences. Luckily, there are many different ways to measure the success of a digital PR campaign

Using data analytics, we continually analyse the successes of campaigns, the areas that are flourishing and meeting our goals and those areas that need tweaking and further work. We deal with real-time data, which gives us the flexibility to change the focus of campaigns as efficiently and promptly as possible.

We recognise that proximity is a key factor for the automotive industry and that you will need to ensure you are visible online for people within your local area. When potential customers search for ‘car dealers’ or ‘car garages’, they are likely to face companies in the immediate area. Therefore we will ensure you come out high on the rankings to make you as visible locally as possible, by targeting local news outlets and publications. 

However, our skillset is not solely limited to working within the UK. Our team of experts, who speak a combined 20 languages, can translate campaigns so you can reach a wider audience.

Backlinks from around the world will help your automotive brand gain a competitive advantage and make you appear more credible and authoritative to potential customers. 

 

Topical themes to boost automotive brands

The key to a great campaign is to combine topical stories with aspects of the automotive industry. 

From one of our in-house brainstorming sessions, we came up with the idea ‘How to Use Your Car to Get More Matches on Tinder’, with a study finding whether posing in front of certain cars will affect the number of matches you get. 

Our team was able to pull together figures on which cars were rewarded with more people swiping right and which models made them lose out with people swiping left. 

We then started to identify publications to match the interests of the brand’s target audience, as well as specific journalists and media outlets. This formed the outreach strategy for this particular campaign.  

This campaign earned more than 70 editorial placements, including links in MSN, Portuguese site UOL and Spanish site, ABC Motor.
