A Tailored Solution for Unique Dealership Marketing Needs

Recognizing the efficacy of one-time email initiatives from the past, Activator takes a significant stride forward by integrating automated multichannel campaigns at scale. Also known as mini-journeys, Custom Campaigns are created and executed with our Journey Builder powered with Salesforce. Custom Campaigns are a dynamic component within Activator that sends personalized messaging and offers with multiple touchpoints via email and SMS (text) to a targeted audience.

Here's how it works:

1. Activator's seasoned Dealer Success Consultants create and send a mini journey across multiple channels with multiple touchpoints focused on a service-oriented or sales-driven initiative or a special event.

2. The system first engages audiences with an email or text and then subsequently delivers more tailored offers and information to those who actively respond.

3. Activator delivers customers who have demonstrated a strong interest in purchasing or selling a vehicle, identifying them as "handraisers," and sends these handraisers directly to the CRM.
