Automarin is the biggest second-hand car dealership in Greece. With over 4 decades of experience and more than 1000 cars, they identified the need to provide great customer service and the constant effort to improve. There is no doubt why Automarin leads the way online and offline.

What was the idea behind using Hey Oliver?

With the fast growth of marketing automation in the automotive market, Automarin knew that they needed to keep up with the competition. Marketing automation would help Automarin to attract the right leads for their sales department, and to ultimately boost the overall business growth. By using our “Hey Oliver” marketing automation tool, they can get in touch, provide personalized experiences and convert those leads easier than ever.

Challenges they were facing:

  • • The need for a lead generation increase
  • • Automated email campaigns for mass-communication personalization weren’t possible
  • • Building clients’ behavioral and transactional profiles were difficult
  • • Lack of dynamic offer adjustment in email marketing and on the website

What were the benefits?

As expected, marketing automation improved the overall quality and increased the number of leads generated. Using our dedicated Hey Oliver Action Plan, we helped Automarin to improve some less converting areas, therefore creating a powerful sales funnel through inbound marketing. Leads were automatically categorized into relevant groups for easier management and of course better targeting with announcements and offers.
