Learn how you can become your own marketing agency for your dealership

This “Do-It-Yourself Marketing” report explains how you can ditch the agency, do your own marketing campaigns, save money and get better results, and it’s FREE!

Dear Farm Equipment Dealer,

Dealerships like yours are now using the power of online marketing tools to grow their businesses and tap into new markets. See how three dealers are bypassing marketing agencies and doing their own campaigns through Google and social media:

  • Lee Parish, owner of Parish Tractor, a Kubota dealership, is building his reputation through Facebook, especially with boosted posts.
  • Ben Garton, chief marketing officer for Garton Tractor, a 10-store New Holland and Kubota dealership, follows a “get negative” approach when it comes to his advertising programs.
  • Doug Vahrenberg owns Vahrenberg Implement, a Massey Ferguson dealership, uses YouTube videos as the cornerstone for his marketing program.

To help you make the most of your in-house marketing capabilities, we’ve compiled their advice into a special eGuide download — and we’ve made it absolutely FREE to get it into the hands of as many marketers and sales managers as possible.

“Facebook is an easy, useful and necessary application for your business. As easy as it is, it requires much attention and is one of the most important aspects of social media you will utilize.”

Lee Parish, who was a regional sales manager before transitioning to dealership owner, has been particularly successful with Facebook and boosting his posts to promote his dealership. 

He believes that it is well worth your investment to pay to reach a wider audience. Parish Tractor starts with creating interesting content, such as a video, sales promotion, employee spotlight, commercial or graphic.

Parish also takes advantage of Facebook’s “shop” tool for selling equipment directly from the page.

Learn how to hyper-focus campaigns on two or three high dollar inventory items and bypass your marketing agency!

Ben Garton is chief marketing officer and part of the fourth generation of Garton Tractor, a 10-store New Holland, Kubota, Hitachi and Takeuchi dealership in California.

He creates a special page on the dealership website for the equipment and includes photos, specifications and product brochures. A Google AdWords campaign and social media posts link back to that web page. 

Garton suggests using online tools, such as Trello for managing projects; Alexa for website comparisons; Upwork for a variety of special projects; and Tableau for data analysis.

“It makes me a better salesman because I know more about that product because of the research I have to do for the video.”

Doug Vahrenberg is the third-generation owner of Vahrenberg Implement, a Massey Ferguson dealership, has mastered the art of selling through videos. His dealership faces some tough competition — 45 competitive tractor dealerships within a 45-mile radius of the dealership.

According to Vahrenberg, giving away information actually helps create a better image for his dealership. Other benefits of his DIY video marketing approach are:

  • Taking control of your dealership’s image
  • Taking marketing into your own hands
  • Creating a unique identity for your dealership

Cross-promotion brings more benefits. He shares his video links on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, and includes them in dealership newsletters.
