When Brandon Ford made the decision to hire CBC Automotive Marketing in 2001, they were ranked the number four Ford dealer in Tampa, they were struggling to get their CSI up to par, and were working hard to hold gross in a highly competitive and price-driven market.
Once CBC looked at their media mix and marketing plan, we immediately determined that radio was the place for them. We began to build their brand using messages with value and an effective pricing philosophy. We featured the General Manager, Wayne Hammond, in unconventional radio spots. These spots focused on promoting their exceptional customer service and great deals without ever stating specific pricing.
Within a year’s time, Brandon Ford took a huge lead in becoming the number one volume Ford dealer in town. Two years later, they became the number one volume Ford dealer in Florida and have stayed in that position ever since. They have risen as high as the number two Ford dealer in the nation and now hold the title as number one Ford dealer in the Southeast United States and number one F-150 dealer in the nation. They also hold the distinction of having sold more CPO Fords in one month that any other dealer in history.
Since CBC began working with Brandon Ford, they have never been “in the red” including during the recession. Their CSI ranking has made a complete turn-around and their sales volume and profitability is through the roof. Even today they continue to be one of the most profitable Ford dealers in the country.
