Inc. 5000-ranked automotive digital marketing company introduces industry’s first dealer-facing, real-time conquest data configurator as part of expanded 3 Birds ME™ marketing platform
Chapel Hill, N.C., April 2, 2016 - 3 Birds Marketing announced today that it will incorporate IHS Automotive predictive models into its enhanced and expanded 3 Birds marketing & analytics platform. For the first time, this addition will offer automotive groups and dealers the ability to call up real-time conquest target counts and visualize in-market prospects in their area based on IHS Automotive insight, then Market Effectively on those conquest opportunities through the 3 Birds ME™ marketing platform and Acquisition Accelerator.
Identify high-value prospects in real time based on IHS models
3 Birds clients and dealerships across the country will be able to target market opportunities in their area according to the IHS suite of high-accuracy aggregated statistical models, which enhance a dealer’s ability to better understand opportunities in their local market, as well as enable dealers to garner insight into an audience’s likelihood of owning a specific brand or competitive make, and identifying which audiences are likely to purchase a new vehicle within the next six months, while also helping to identify new prospective customers for the dealership.
3 Birds eliminates the need for complex data queries and reliance on vendor-managed third-party tools with an intuitive data visualization dashboard powered by the sophisticated Tableau business intelligence software. Any dealership with a login to any app within the 3 Birds platform will be able to access the conquest configurator and independently filter by either preview model. The agreement also grants 3 Birds access to accurate conquest count information for every dealership in the United States, even those without a login to the platform.
The conquest configurator and data visualization tool was developed in-house at 3 Birds under the direction of Doug Van Sach, VP of Analytics and Insight, a seasoned technology executive with 15 years of experience building multi-channel marketing programs and merchandising strategies for automotive OEMs, dealer groups, and aftermarket companies. The tool is the first of its kind to allow any dealership in the country to obtain target counts and see the visualizations of the in-market opportunities in their area.
Changes are reflected dynamically in the interactive map and corresponding graph view. Additional insights are available by filtering according to specific ZIP codes, such as those containing primary competitors. This data provides the foundation for future conquest opportunities and can be further segmented by vehicle category and other data variables.
