Gamification Marketing in the Car Industry

Gamification marketing has been widely used within the retail and hospitality industries, but what about market sectors with more high-priced and considerable purchase items? Does gamification marketing bring exceptional results within these industries as well?

The automotive industry is increasingly using gamification marketing in order to improve not only their customer experience, but also loyalty.

The majority of car manufacturers already recognise the importance of using interactive content marketing in order to drive growth and improve customer experience. At the same time, we live in a world where most consumers expect and demand digital platforms.

In order to communicate more efficiently with potential customers, we must acknowledge that the digital space is exactly where car buyers make their decisions about brands, prices, and opportunities. This is where gamification can play a role!

New leads for Toyota

In Q4, Toyota implemented a Christmas campaign with Scratcher in the form of a Christmas calendar with different quiz formats. The aim of this campaign was to acquire new permissions after a year of GDPR.

The combination of gamification and effective product messaging led to a permission base of high quality. Toyota experienced high opening and click rates in their newsletters as well as in their personalised product email campaigns. Numbers tell their own story.

Gamification Can Solve Your Challenges

Here are a few examples:
• Permission collection for service inspection (with link to booking)
• To gain knowledge about customers’ preferences, and thus market the “right” offers for models and options
• Obtain knowledge and data about changing summer and winter tires, respectively
• Create test runs at dealers

These marketing activities can be fully automated and integrated into various gamification campaigns. Thus, over time, an effective lead nurturing flow will be built and help ensure an influx of new business for both car manufacturers and dealers. At the same time, you build trust with your end customers, who feel assisted with reminders about maintenance for their car.

What's Next?

If done right, gamification will capture users’ attention and increase their commitment to a purchase transaction.
