Does digital marketing influence the automotive industry?

The fact that in the automotive sector changes are continually being recorded is nothing new. So yes, digital experts in marketing and sales influence the automotive sector and have been able to notice a series of trends and changes in habits in the current car buyer. Facts such as the decrease in visits to dealers, more informed customers or the creation of vehicle sharing platforms, make car salespeople rethink their marketing and sales strategies. The purchasing process in the automotive sector has changed. Previously, a user who wanted to buy a car would ask family and friends, look in magazines or visit several dealerships. To this day, anyone who wants to buy a car, the first thing he will do is search Google for information about the vehicles. Consumers are imbued with information before visiting the dealership, and that is where the opportunity for marketers and marketing specialists lies to offer the information the customer is looking for. One of the disciplines most used in these cases is Content Marketing, that is, providing quality content to our potential customers. In its report, Google gives as an example the actions of three major brands in the automotive sector such as Volvo, Tesla Motors and Jaguars, but there are as many cases of important brands that are focusing their Marketing and Sales actions in a purely digital environment. Examples such as Nissan, which sold the first car on Twitter in Spain or Seat with the launch of the Seat Mii through Amazon. Cases like these, draw a changing landscape. Digital Marketing is a powerful tool to adapt to the new rules of the game and be there where the potential customer needs it.
