Do you often hear consultants claiming that digital marketing is the only way to market your auto shop nowadays or that direct mail is practically dead? If you answered yes and find yourself skeptical of these claims, then you and the Conceptual Minds team are on the same wavelength. When done right, print marketing and direct mail campaigns are proven to offer better ROI (return on investment) than many other marketing options. For tire & auto service businesses looking to reach and generate a high volume of leads, print marketing is a must-have. See what’s possible for your shop with our Direct Mail ROI calculator.
By investing in targeted, high quality direct mail campaigns your automotive business will:
Generate More Revenue:
28% more money spent by direct mail recipients compared with consumers who don’t receive it
Expand Brand Awareness:
75% of people who receive direct mail from a brand can recall it immediately, compared with 44% brand recall after seeing a digital ad
But there’s a catch. Our master marketers often find that many auto service providers aren’t able to achieve such results and instead execute direct mail campaigns that underperform. This usually occurs because business owners and operators rely on “gut feelings” and aren’t always sure how to measure the success of their efforts.

That’s where we come in. The Conceptual Minds team has zero loyalty to anyone but our clients. We will help you assess your current print marketing efforts so you can have a solid understanding of what’s working and what needs a change!
