We have devised one of the quickest and most efficient methods for selling cars. Our approach can be executed with your existing staff or by including a few of our exceptionally skilled salespeople to enhance the process. To learn more about our process and the introduction of new mailers for 2023/2024, please watch the video featuring Tommy Ray Stokes.

Do mailers still work?


Many auto dealers have abandoned their direct mail strategies centered around events. They rely too much on digital marketing; getting noticed in the noisy, spam-filled digital world is challenging. Think about how many emails you receive... check your junk email next time you're logged in. You should combine the two approaches, place more emphasis on mailers, incorporate some radio advertising, and complement it with a big tent event lasting 4 to 5 days.

Hosting a tent event sends a clear message that something significant is happening at your dealership, and you're committed to selling cars. Having a HUGE tent also transforms the landscape, piquing consumers' curiosity. After determining the size of your billboard tent, we select a theme...

We strongly encourage you to extend this theme throughout the entire dealership, from the mailer to salespeople answering the phones, theme T-Shirts for the staff, and ensure you discuss the "BIG SALE" with people when they arrive. It's essential that everyone is on the same page; failing to do so may result in losing customers after getting them there.

Our favorite theme is the Public Sales Event (Pre-Auction) because we do not offer giveaways, making it suitable for smaller markets with a limited sales staff. The only thing you're giving away here are fantastic deals on new and used vehicles and exceptional service.
