Group 1 Renault Launch Virtual Showroom

WSI Client - Group 1 Renault

When people think of Renault they think of a dynamic brand that offers exuberant French flair and plenty of European luxury and excitement. So when they are looking online to purchase a New Renault Vehicle they expect a digital presence that offers them exactly the same experience.

This is why when Group 1 Renault launched their new showroom in Stellenbosch, they called upon their well-established working relationship with WSI in Cape Town and together these two industry leaders helped create a digital marketing strategy that promotes Brand Growth, Measurable Marketing Objectives and Actionable Sales Leads. This trust in our ability to deliver the best digital marketing strategy is the kind of working environment that WSI thrives in, because it gives us the chance to successfully tap into new automotive markets and help create brand recognition both for Group 1 and Renault as we do so. This literally allows Group 1 Renault to operate a “virtual showroom”, one that translates directly into bottom line financial viability for Group 1, as it allows them to:

  • Successfully launch the Group 1 and Renault Brands into untapped markets
  • Sell more new cars at both a local and national levels
  • Increase regional brand awareness through newsletter subscriptions
  • Improve one on one and social media customer communication
  • Create upsell opportunities in both the new and used vehicle markets

WSI has been able to achieve all of these set objectives within a very short period of time thanks to our diverse team of Digital Marketing professionals. In fact, our integrated approach to building websites ensures that everything is covered before the official launch and the step by step approach to creating a digital marketing showpiece includes everything from website architecture, conversion optimisation and ongoing Google friendly Search Marketing strategies that turn websites into powerful lead generation and brand building assets.
