Palm Coast Ford

Palm Coast Ford Logo

Palm Coast Ford is a mid-size Ford dealership on Florida’s northeast coast just off Interstate 95, that owns their Primary Market Area (PMA).  The dealership had a goal of increasing their market share in the area up to twenty miles south of their location. They partnered with Spectrum Reach, who developed an attribution solution to address the dealership's sales objectives using customized creative and an audience-based multiscreen campaign.

The GoalA new conquest zone

With concentrated sales, the dealership has run TV and digital ads in the Spectrum Reach North Volusia coverage area (zone) that targeted their PMA. The dealership showed interest in conquest sales from competitive dealerships in a geography 20+ miles to the south of Palm Coast Ford. That geography is represented by the South Volusia Spectrum Reach Zone. Port Orange, is a prospect-dense area within South Volusia that is ripe for conquest sales.

The SolutionDeveloping a multiscreen media campaign

The media campaign targeted Ford car and truck buyers and used the full multiscreen portfolio including linear TV, streaming TV and addressable online video, display and search in Spectrum Reach North Volusia to support the PMA and the new South Volusia Zones to  target conquest buyers. Streaming TV was also used in prospect–rich Port Orange zip codes to hyper-target in-market conquest buyers.

Kernel, Spectrum Reach's creative team, developed new ads for every screen with relevant messaging for the new conquest zone by updating the dealership's tagline to 'Go The Extra Mile' to engage potential buyers who would need to make the drive.

Customizing the creative in the conquest zone clearly engaged consumers in South Volusia, where prospective buyers were exposed to the Palm Coast Ford message for the first time and took decisive action.
