Strategic Loyalty Campaigns for Franchise Automotive Dealers

Loyalty Campaigns Carefully Crafted to Knock Your Socks Off!

Our Attention to Detail Will Set You Apart. Like it Sets us Apart


Loyalty Marketing has become a major focus lately (as it should be) … but what is it really? We hope you realize, every competitor in your area is spending tens-of-thousands each year to entice your clients into their showrooms. The instant you take your client for granted, your rivals will pounce and, in many instances, relieve you of your client. Loyalty Marketing is about timing and a perfectly placed offer. It’s part science, part art and very few firms do it correctly. Shift your Focus.


Consumers are more fickle than ever before. They (rightfully) feel entitled to have what they want, when and how they want it. At no other time in history has the public had so many choices with so little friction. Companies of all sizes are no longer in control and your toughest rival is just a click away if you drop the ball. Most businesses struggle with this truth, and those businesses are doomed to fall behind more enlightened competitors. Shift your Thinking.


We've perfected our method over the last half decade/2,217 successful campaigns. It starts with our secret data filtering algorithm and our industry-best team of former Dealers, GMs and Zone Managers, Computer Science Grads and award-winning graphic designers. Ultimately, our attention to detail, level of creativity, experience and industry knowledge are unparalleled. In the game of database/loyalty marketing … there's zero margin for error. You'll want to Shift with Us.

A Small Sample of What Our Clients Think of Shift.

“The response we received was so strong that we didn't have time to update our progress on the site. Our sales staff is now disappointed that the sale is over, and are looking forward to the next one. A big thank you to everyone at the UPGRADE SALE. You made this so easy and fun for us. We will definitely be doing this again.”

Mario Crevier New Car Manager Revell Ford

“This is the second Upgrade Sale we have done and once again, we are extremely pleased with the results. Not only did we increase our opportunities and sales, we increased the amount of quality trades we took in. We look forward to the next Upgrade Sale in the fall. Great program!”

Cheyno Finnie Dealer Principal Integrity Hyundai

“We have done several Upgrade Sale Events and were provided great support before and during the campaign to ensure we were making the most of it. It generated quality leads which resulted in additional sales and great trades. Our team looks forward to another event!”

Dave Graham General Sales Manager Leavans Volkswagen

“We’ve done a number of events with the team from Shift Marketing Studio. The Upgrade Sale has always generated a ton of great leads and has helped us sell more cars and trucks. We’re really excited about the new product offerings like the Ford Employee Pricing Loyalty Event! We are most definitely looking forward to our next campaign.”

Scott Scobie General Manager Airport Ford Lincoln

“Dunlop Ford has partnered with Shift Marketing Studio since the beginning. We now use them exclusively because of the effectiveness of the Upgrade Sale Events. They are professional, pay attention to detail and always get results. I highly recommend them as every sale we’ve run has been a success.”

Shaun Henderson General Manager Dunlop Ford

“The entire process from the presentation all the way to the event itself was done professionally and without pressure. The letter sent to the customer is of top quality and the registration website gives credibility to the event. I have nothing but praise for your process from start to end and we will most definitely hold another event in the future.”

I’ve walked in the shoes of many of our dealer partners. I can appreciate what is required to run and manage a successful dealership.

We have been working with David Briand and Shift Marketing Studio and the various marketing programs they offer for over four years.

Working in the automotive industry for 30 years, our core philosophy is: “Your best customer is the one you already have”.

Our results show that cross media marketing is a very effective way for dealerships to stay in touch with their customers. In turn we have established many long-term dealer relationships that have referred us numerous times because of the extra sales that resulted from our proven campaigns. 905-331-8700

Lisa, with 15 years working in the creation and management of dealership Business Development Centres, what do you believe is essential to building loyalty between your dealers and their clients?

In today’s highly competitive environment it is crucial that customers feel a personal bond to their dealership. Customers are less likely to price-shop when they have a connection with their dealer. This level of loyalty can only be achieved through innovative use of great marketing communication scheduled at regular intervals. 519.878.7787 1 855.227.1717 x705
