Growing Your Social Following Can Be Hard.

At Dealer Rising, we have created the perfect strategy to grow your dealership’s social media followers and email list.

Need more sales opportunities?

A carefully designed social media contest is a great way to accomplish the goals of your dealership. Our social contests can:

By offering a prize that would be desirable to your potential customers, requiring a social media follow in order to enter, and offering bonus entries to those who share the contest you can achieve meaningful growth in your followers quickly.

One of the most valuable, and often overlooked, assets to any business is an email list full of potential customers. By requiring customers to subscribe to your email list you can begin building a priceless asset that you can use for the lifetime of your dealership.

By requiring users to enter a contest by visiting your location you can drive a ton of potential buyers to come in.

Increasing user generated content can greatly improve your trust in the community and the assets you obtain can be used over and over again in future promotions.

Automotive Dealership Contest Results

Here’s how it works!

You’ll be redirected to our onboarding accelerator to quickly share some details about your dealership. During onboarding, we will gather everything we need from you to build your contest including the dealership logo, audience demographics/regions, any ideas you have for a prize, contest length, and preferred outcomes.
This helps us create a customized strategy for your contest to attract more followers.
Within 1 week we will have a draft of the contest graphics. If approved, we will continue with the contest build-out.
If revisions are needed, we will complete them and get the drafts back to you in no more than 3 days.

Once your contest assets are approved, we will get to work on building out the contest including the landing page, email, and ad copy.

Once all the above has been approved and completed we schedule a 1-hour launch call where we literally look over your shoulder as you launch your contest and set up a few integrations like your email list and social media accounts, making sure everything is good to go.

After launch, we will provide you with a document containing a posting/email schedule and content to promote your contest.
Throughout the contest, we will check in with you periodically to see how things are going and that your contest is generating entries successfully.
As your contest comes to a close, we will use our software to pick a winner or winners, and send you the copy to announce the winner on social and by email, including a special offer for everyone who didn’t win.
Upon completion of the contest, we will provide you with a report showing a high-level view of the contest results, an export of all entries including their email addresses, and a bonus gift from Dealer Rising to thank you for utilizing our services.
You see, even though it’s a 100% DFY service, we still include you in all the processes because you have the final say in everything. From the dealership logo to ad copy, everything will be run through you so you stay in the loop.

Dealer Rising’s Social Media Contests differ from contests you may have run in the past in two important ways:


Built In Virality

Our contests are built in a way that gamifies your contest to increase virality. Like nothing you’ve seen before, and without any complexity on your end, we are able to build contests that go viral through social sharing! 


Laser Targeted Entries

By choosing a relevant prize that only your ideal customer would be interested in we limit the entries to your contest to only those people that are truly interested in doing business with your dealership.
