Using Autometrics shopper data, automakers have almost immediate insights into lower funnel demand for their vehicles, by market, and how that demand is changing relative to the competition.  The negative sales impact of competitive campaigns can be assessed as soon as they air, as well as consumer reaction to own-brand marketing activities.

Insights are available to answer a range of questions, such as:

Marketing and Incentive Strategy

Should the focus be on increasing the number of shoppers, due to lower than required Share of Shoppers in a market? Or should the concentration be on sales conversion tactics, due to higher than expected Share of Shoppers, or a combination of both approaches?

Incentives Effectiveness

Analyse historic incentive effectiveness for each vehicle segment at national, regional and DMA level, by dollar value.

Advertising Effectiveness

How effective is each advertising campaigns at increasing shopper demand? Which markets are responding more favorably to an ad campaign than other markets?  Which competitor campaigns have the greatest negative impact?

Inventory Mix
