Engaging Content Creation

The trick is to build a video that’s highly visually engaging… whether the customer has the audio on or off. This statement underscores the essence of content creation in today’s digital age. For marine dealerships, it’s not just about listing products; it’s about crafting a story that captivates and engages. Whether it’s showcasing the sleek design of a new yacht or the serene experience of a boat ride, the content should be visually appealing and emotionally resonant.

Video Advertising: A Key to Customer Engagement

Video advertising stands at the forefront of customer engagement. Different platforms require different video formats and dimensions. For instance, a square video format might be more effective on Instagram, offering more screen real estate and a better user experience. We also build those ads in multiple ad sizes… which gives us much more real estate on that digital device, and highlights the need for platform-specific content strategies. This different size dimensions can be a massive pain, you’d think that there would be a standard size but sadly not the case.

Optimizing for Lead Conversion

The journey from a casual website visitor to a lead is nuanced. It involves understanding customer behavior and tailoring the experience to their interests. For example, if a visitor shows interest in a particular boat model, retargeting them with specific content about that model can significantly increase the chances of conversion. We’re going to retarget that customer that keeps looking at our content.

The Power of Retargeting and Conquest Advertising

Retargeting keeps your dealership at the forefront of potential customers’ minds. By showing them ads based on their previous interactions with your website, you create a personalized experience. Conquest advertising, on the other hand, aims to capture the attention of customers who haven’t interacted with your brand yet. We can retarget those customers with your advertisements… using high resolution images right from your dealership’s website.

Utilizing Special Offers and Calls to Action

A compelling call to action (CTA) is crucial in digital ads. It guides the customer on what to do next, whether it’s learning more about a product or taking advantage of a special offer. Incentivizing the right customers with the right offer is a great way to generate leads, emphasizes the importance of aligning offers with customer interests to boost engagement and sales.

SEO and Content Strategy

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is vital in ensuring your content reaches the right audience. By optimizing ad content for search engines, you increase the visibility of your dealership online. Each and every one of these ad specials is a blog post which is great optimization for SEO, and points out how creative content can enhance your online presence.

A comprehensive digital content strategy is indispensable for marine dealerships aiming to excel in a competitive market. By focusing on engaging content, targeted advertising, and effective CTAs, dealerships can not only attract but also retain customers. Remember, having an additional focus on the content… is going to be what separates your dealership from your competitors.
