Why Effective Automotive Email Marketing is Critical for Your Auto Service Business?
If you’re looking to increase car count and repeat purchase rate for your auto shop(s), auto service email marketing is one of the most effective and least expensive ways to reach your current and past customers. Here’s why:
of consumers check their email daily* compared to 74% of daily users on Facebook, world’s top used social media network
(2017 Data & Marketing Association Report; 2019 Pew Research Center Data)
ROI (return on investment) or $44 gained for every 1$ spent on email marketing specific investments
(2018 Campaign Monitor Study)
The opportunity to bring customers back to your shop through email is tremendous! However, like most marketing, email marketing requires some on-going effort. So, if you don’t have anyone managing and improving your auto shop’s email marketing on a regular basis or if you’ve put it in “set it and forget it” mode with one of the popular email software providers then you are likely missing out on a big opportunity!

Automotive Email Marketing FAQs
Q: Can Conceptual Minds use our existing email marketing software to help maximize my auto shop’s email marketing results?
A: Yes, absolutely! Our team has zero loyalties to any provider, meaning we are very flexible working with any/all available email marketing software in the marketplace. Long story short, our goal is all about helping our clients create and deliver the best campaigns possible so they can maximize their profits.
Our master marketers have plenty of hands on experience working with a wide range of email marketing platforms – anything from auto service industry specific platforms like DemandForce to those used by the automotive sector’s top performers, such as Oracle Eloqua. So, we understand the ins and outs of each email platform and how to help you tap into their potential and get the most out of your email marketing dollars.
Q: We’ve had little luck collecting email addresses from our customers. How big of an email list do we need to get started?
A: As the popular saying goes, Rome wasn’t built in a day. At Conceptual Minds, we are strong believers that every business has to start somewhere to get closer to generating results (and more profits in your pockets). Our team can definitely help you launch email marketing even with a small number of email addresses.
Of course, the larger the list, the more you would benefit from your email campaign efforts. But don’t worry! We’ve got plenty of tricks up our sleeves to help you collect new email addresses quickly (even from your most resistant/uninterested customers).
Q: Would your email marketing services include sending more emails to my customers? If yes, aren’t you worried that’ll upset my customers and just cause them to unsubscribe?
A: Yes, our email marketing services will most likely include recommendations encouraging your shop to send more emails to your current customers.
Regarding your concern about upsetting customers, it’s definitely valid. However, our years of experience and testing shows that consumers are more (not less) likely to engage with your shop if the emails you send are timely AND relevant. The problem you’re worried about often happens when a business randomly emails customers without understanding their purchase history and buying behavior. At Conceptual Minds, we only encourage sending relevant email messages and our approach has delivered fantastic results for our tire & auto service clients, time and time again.
Q: We’ve tried email marketing before with little success. Why should I re-consider it for my auto shop?
A: We know that it can be disappointing to invest time and/or money into something that doesn’t yield good (or any) results. However, it’s also important to understand why that effort didn’t work and/or failed. There can be several factors that contribute to generating limited or no results from email marketing efforts, including:
As we mentioned at the top of this page, email marketing currently produces 4,400% ROI on average for businesses across all industries. So, obviously, this strategy is working really well for many businesses, including those in the tire & auto service industry. Therefore, it’s likely that one of the reasons listed above probably prevented your shop from getting the results you were looking for in the past.
Our master marketers always take the time to understand your previous efforts (and determine why it did or didn’t work) before recommending next steps or any new email marketing investments. At Conceptual Minds, being honest and setting the right expectations for our clients is our top priority. So, you can rest assured, if our team feels that we can’t help you achieve success through email marketing (or any other marketing effort), we’ll be the first to let you know!
Q: Our print marketing and in-store perks have always kept our customers coming back. Why do we need to add email marketing?
A: We’re so glad you asked! There’s actually a great deal of data that says email marketing can increase the results generated through direct mail. According to Royal Mail research:
Also, as you likely already know direct mail is far more expensive than email. By adding email as part of your marketing investment, Conceptual Minds can help you use direct mail more efficiently. Over time, our team will work to save your money by helping identify customers that engage well with your business through email. Once narrowed down, those customers may no longer need to be communicated with through direct mail, which will allow your shop to reduce costs.
Q: I already invest in email marketing with the help of another company. Why should I consider Conceptual Minds?
A: That’s a very fair question. At Conceptual Minds, our team takes a hands-on, data-centric approach to email marketing. We take the time to create highly effective and eye-catching email designs along with content and messaging that really connects with your customers. Our team’s approach combines our tire & auto service industry experience, specific insights we collect about your business, plus our in-depth email marketing expertise to create campaigns that deliver results that don’t just meet but exceed your expectations.
But we don’t just stop there. Our master marketers regularly measure how your campaigns are doing, assess your results against tire &auto industry benchmarks, and conduct on going testing. We then take all of this information to build on the campaigns that are working and get rid of those that aren’t, so we continue maximizing your email marketing investment on an ongoing basis (well after they’re first launched).
We know there are many solid email marketing providers out there that produce great results for their clients. That’s why before getting started with every new client, we first conduct a thorough analysis of your current email campaigns. This assessment lets our team and our potential client (you) know whether you’re already getting the best results possible or if engaging our master marketers can help further your shop’s business goals (e.g., increase customer retention, grow car counts).
