There's No Such Thing as One-Size-Fits-All Marketing

Your dealership is unique—your social advertising strategy should be too.

Social media is great for responsive, insanely targeted ads, but it's a constantly changing medium. Things like ad formats and industry best practices are never the same for too long as new innovations take off and consumer interests and preferences change over time.

Your dealership needs a marketing team that can help you find success through these ins and outs, whether that's an in-house team or a chosen partner. Let us help you by providing all the information your dealership needs in order to choose the best solution for your specific needs.

When it comes to social advertising, which vendor relationship is right for you?

Automotive Inventory Advertising

For the do-it-yourself dealership with a great in-house marketing team.

Naked Lime is one of very few providers capable of receiving, processing, and distributing your vehicle data directly to Facebook and making your exact inventory available at your fingertips to run and control your own ads.

Automotive Inventory Ads (AIA) are specifically built to retarget individuals ready to buy. With Naked Lime's technical capabilities and Facebook partnership, you have access to your entire catalog of vehicle inventory on Facebook to promote in-stock vehicles with such details as price, make, model, and year (plus photos!).

From there, you can self-create and self-run dynamic ads that are automatically generated to show your most compelling inventory to the right audiences, driving them to vehicle detail pages, lead submission forms, or other retail actions.

You control your ads, your budget, and your strategy. We power the tech to make it all happen.
