It was an honour to welcome Group 1 Mitsubishi to the fold in 2018, and the WSI Marketing team is excited to share some insider info into how we went about bolstering their digital reach with the help of best-practice SEO principles and a nimble approach to content marketing.
Meet The Client: Group 1 Mitsubishi
Our working relationship with Group 1 was established in 2008, and it has been a wonderful journey of discovery and skill acquisition as we immersed ourselves in the intricacies of the South African auto trade in order to provide this valued client with insight-based solutions to their digital needs.
The Group 1 Mitsubishi dealership in Kuils River, Western Cape was acquired during the third quarter of 2018. The dealership is situated on the same premises as its sister dealership Group 1 Nissan, Group 1 Datsun and Group 1 Mahindra, and it only stood to reason that they should also benefit from a similar increase in digital real estate as the rest of the brands under this respected umbrella. That’s where WSI Marketing came in.
The Big WSI Digital Rollout For Group 1 Mitsubishi
As always, our aim was for Group 1 Mitsubishi to start ranking for some of the juiciest search terms pertaining to their brand as soon as possible. As such, our first course of action was to build an SEO-optimised website that placed the Mitsubishi brand name front and centre, along with phrases and search terms that relate to the sought-after Mitsubishi ASX, Mitsubishi Eclipse, Mitsubishi Outlander, Mitsubishi Pajero Sport, Mitsubishi Pajero SWB, and Mitsubishi Triton in particular.
A preowned subsite was integrated at the same time as the new site was launched and moving forward WSI will be building SEO pages optimising for pre-owned Mitsubishi models and related phrases as well. To keep things ticking over and drive even more link juice to the site, we provide Group 1 Mitsubishi with monthly content marketing services, on-site and off-site SEO, as well as Google Ads and remarketing (including dynamic inventory ads on Google Ads). This includes the utilisation of directory listings, social sharing and content syndication.
The Amazing Results Enjoyed So Far
SEO takes time, and we are happy to say that our focused approach has yielded some exceptional results. Organic traffic to the site has increased immensely, which has allowed Group 1 Mitsubishi to use their site as a cost-effective marketing tool rather than a static catalogue of their vehicles. In the competitive auto market, this is an achievement in which our team takes great pride.
The Way Ahead for WSI & Group 1 Mitsubishi
The WSI Marketing team believes there is still plenty more we can do to boost the Group 1 Mitsubishi rankings. As the digital marketing playing field evolves, we upskill accordingly, keeping up with the requirements for online excellence to ensure that our client stays at the forefront of search-related innovation. As the Group 1 Mitsubishi offering expands, we will continue to work in the wings to expand their online presence and channel their marketing message to a cherry-picked demographic.
