  • Update customer data regularly through email appending and VIN title transfer to ensure you are working with the cleanest data possible.
  • Segment and refine your data so you send resonating messages to your customers about their specific vehicle needs.
  • Analyze previous results and customer data to create the perfect message for each customer segment.
  • Create a follow-up plan for customer segments, determining the best offers and frequency to get the highest response.

Direct Mail Marketing


Deliver offers that have weight, substance and dimension. Customers holding mail in their hands provides emotional impact and increases their recollection and interactions. But that’s only when the right offer is sent to the right customer, using reliable data.

Direct mail’s response rates are 10 to 30 times higher than that of digital communications.

Direct Marketing Association


  • Operate on the same intelligent marketing engine as our email platform.
  • Use transactional data from your DMS, with verified and appended household data from Polk, USPS, and more.
  • Reduce invalid or duplicate addresses, allowing you to send fewer pieces of direct mail, with better results.

Build connections between dealerships and customers. When they are ready to buy or service, they feel like they’re going to a trusted friend with their business.

84% of all automotive shoppers are on Facebook and 24% used Facebook as a resource for purchasing their last vehicle.
