Authenticity and relevance are key when creating engaging social media content in the automotive industry. If your agency doesn’t know its accessories from its hard parts or GTs from its Drift, then what chance do they have of talking your target audience’s language on your social media channels?
Whilst doing it yourself might seem appealing at first, most automotive brands without a dedicated in-house social marketer soon realise that it’s often a false economy to take people off of their focussed role to invest time and money into something which they may not do very well. Social media KPIs are often based around new followers or post likes, but in reality it is much more complex than that. Are these followers quality prospects or people who can influence your audience? Who is engaging with you and why? Are these engagements positively positioning your brand? Are they conveying a tactical message as part of a wider integrated strategy? Are these people genuinely in the sales funnel? Will their engagement ultimately result in conversions?
