TEXT2DRIVE, an innovator in dealership communications, saw many dealers struggling to manage communications with multiple in-house tools that didn’t automate or integrate seamlessly.

Coming off of a recent major website update, TEXT2DRIVE looked to Bay Leaf Digital to assist in driving brand awareness, increasing website traffic and increasing quality leads in a cost-effective manner. The PPC costs in the automotive vertical are very high, making the cost of customer acquisition (CAC) unsustainable.

The challenge was to identify a strategy that drove cost-efficient, high-quality leads.

Bay Leaf Digital identified two core digital strategies to promote the visibility of TEXT2DRIVE as a leader in their field as well as drive continuous increasing quality leads:

The first was an organic strategy based on search engine optimization (SEO) and original thought leadership content.

The second was a paid strategy of PPC campaigns (search, display and social) and retargeting.

Before diving into lead generation, Bay Leaf Digital helped TEXT2DRIVE build a strong foundation on their website through search engine optimization, keyword identification, audience building and refreshing gated content to speak to specific personas.

Through an iterative process of testing, optimizing and ongoing analysis, Bay Leaf Digital was able to marry the right channel, the right audience, and the right content offers together to drive quality lead generation.

Social Strategy

With the launch of thought leadership content combined with a paid social ads strategy, Bay Leaf Digital was able to drive leads at a lower cost than what was found in traditional search and display PPC.
