move more metal with car dealer and parts specialists that generate leads and sales with a proven ROI
be where you need to be to get the sale

If you’re a car dealer, you’re in the right place. We help car dealerships and parts businesses grow using proven digital marketing techniques that drive enquiries and sales, and all with a return on investment.

It’s easy to be confused when it comes to digital marketing. We know the buying process for a new and used car can be a long, drawn out affair, and that your customer maybe searching on Google or Bing, or using AutoTrader or Facebook. So how do you make sure you’re focused on the right channels, that you don’t spend more than you need to or should do, that you’re getting a return?

Speak to Key Principles for honest, open advice on what is working and what isn’t, and where you should spend your marketing budget for the best results.
