No single media channel can win out any more. Today, it’s about being wherever customers are.
You must give them what they need. Relevant messages. Messages that solve a problem, they may not even be aware they have. Making sure each interaction is intelligently connected to the next is what they expect. You can't simply make a statement without connecting them to the next step. This means your dealership needs to deliver a great customer experience along with truly integrated marketing across any and every channel - web, social, mobile, broadcast, mail, radio, email, in-store, outdoor and beyond. That means planning your marketing strategy to incorporate reaching the RV consumer in a variety of places. You can't rely on one medium to achieve your marketing objective. Your wouldn't want an array of marketing companies putting out your message, causing confusion and increasing costs. But, many dealers do exactly this. They hire one company for digital advertising, let their TV station develop their commercials, rely on the radio station to create radio spots, and allow the newspaper to create their layout for sales events. There is nothing consistent about that. You pay each vendor for creative, and your message won't have consistent tonality, urgency, or even focus on the same offers and incentives. Your message, your brand, your creative, your tonality - they need to be consistent to offer a real authentic experience to your potential customers wherever they happen to find your dealership.
