Direct mail is the best way to cherry-pick the cars you want to service, and with DRIVEN newsletter and our premium automotive mailing lists, you can do just that. DRIVEN is a colorful 4-page quarterly newsletter that allows high-end repair shops to send coupons to the homes with vehicles you know are profitable to service.
The Power Of Coupons
Service coupons drive sales. It’s indisputable. 90% of the automotive websites have a “special offer” or “service coupon” section (although many rarely update the coupons, which is a shame). We have a library of hundreds of coupons to choose from, or create your own. The bottom line is give the consumer a reason to act. Coupons also reinforce your brand since the customer must hang on to your mailer until they come in for service and redeem the coupon. We recommend an expiration date to provide a sense of urgency, usually 60 days since the newsletter is quarterly.
Targeted Mailing Lists
A quality mailing list is critical to the success of Driven, and every record is corroborated from two separate sources before it’s included in our database. A 3rd record must be received within a 10-month period to verify owner information. Hygiene is an ongoing everyday process. Sources feeding data include: Point of Sale and Service, Online Insurance Quotes, Warranty Companies, Aftermarket Repair Companies, Major Car Clubs of America.
√ DPPA compliant as amended by the Shelby Act.
√ Updates weekly to every thirty days depending on source.
This is not garage predictor list!
Driven isn’t your typical automotive direct mail program. What makes us different?
The newsletter is EASY to deploy; you’re working with real people, not a computer interface or worse yet — a salesforce whose only job is to get your order and then disappear.
We work with auto repair shops, small and large. Our minimum order is 2,000. With our sliding price scale, the more you order, the more you can save.
Highly-targeted mailing lists that reach the owners of the EXACT cars you want to service: Make, model and year.
When it comes time to develop content for your newsletter, you’ll be working with professional publishers who have a combined 100+ years experience publishing newsletters!
The front and back of Driven are reserved for your repair shop, and if you need helpful ideas for coupons and stories, we have an online library with plenty to choose from.
No bait and switch, and we don’t have hidden fees.
