Frontier Ford

High-Performance Campaign Drove Traffic to Hard-to-Find Dealer

With over 50 years in business, Frontier Ford earned a solid reputation in the Anacortes, Washington community. The challenges, however, included an off-the-beaten-path location, a Chevy competitor across the street and lagging service appointments. To give their marketing a much-needed, tune-up, the dealership teamed up with excelerate. With innovative digital strategies in tow, we put their marketing in high gear. Sales and service revenue took off so fast, one might have thought the campaigns were running on high octane.
