To effectively market to your ideal customers, it’s important to know more about who they are, right? Well, marketing data is the key that unlocks a world of information about your consumers.
Ultimately, the insights provided by advanced databases infuse your auto marketing campaign with details that help your customers connect with your dealership and drive them to buy.
Luckily, the team at Aspen Automotive capitalizes on modern marketing data by offering our clients information gathered from our exclusive databases, including Real Time Credit Score Data.
Armed with this knowledge, you can target audiences within specific credit score brackets to enhance your automotive marketing strategy’s response rate and cost effectiveness.
WHAT IS REAL TIME CREDIT SCORE DATA?
First and foremost, let’s define what this database actually is. Put simply, Real Time Credit Score Data is a list that targets customers based on their actual credit score and credit information pulled from the three credit bureaus: Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion.
How do we have access to such specific, accurate data? Well, we just so happen to be part of the number-one ranked global marketing and consumer database innovator, Epsilon.
Epsilon is a data marketing solutions company that has spent more than 50 years in the industry. Over that time, they’ve streamlined the data process to help us help you craft the most accurate marketing strategy to drive sales. Additionally, they’ve been ranked number one in transactional and behavioral data in the industry, furthering their abilities to provide the best, most accurate information possible.
Not only does this allow us to connect with top-notch data that offer unparalleled insights into your dealership’s audience, but it also sets us apart from other automotive marketing agencies.
WHAT IS A PERFECT CREDIT SCORE?
When you’re looking to use Real Time Credit Score Data information to send marketing materials to a particular targeted audience, understanding credit scores is essential.
For example, if you’re looking to target individuals with a perfect credit score, you’ll want to set your credit score range for those who have a score of 800 and over. Do you want to target someone with Fair credit who may have been turned away by other dealerships? You may consider targeting a range up to 669.
Let’s take a look at the ranges of credit scores:
- Excellent: 800 and over
- Very good: 740-799
- Good: 670-739
- Fair: 580-669
- Poor: 580 and under
With this information in hand, you can more accurately send information to your targeted audience about pre-approval forms or financing promotions.
REAL TIME CREDIT SCORE DATA: ACCURATE CREDIT INFORMATION
Now, you may be thinking, “why can’t I use something like Credit Karma to pull my customers’ credit score data?”
The fact of the matter is that online tools that only collect credit data from two bureaus instead of three, like Credit Karma, aren’t nearly as accurate as the data accessed by the Real Time Credit Score database.
In addition, Credit Karma and other online credit portals don’t gather information from creditors, and creditors don’t report information to Credit Karma. For example, if you were to apply for credit through a bank—like a credit union—this information is reported to credit bureaus.
If you were to use Credit Karma to obtain the credit scores of those in your targeted audience, you’ll receive far less information than you would if you used our Real Time Credit Score Data information. Plus, without the essential details provided by creditors, it’s hard to say whether the information that your dealership is referencing in Credit Karma is accurate or not.
The best way to ensure that you’re accurately targeting the appropriate credit range for your automotive marketing campaign is to use a database that relies on data pulled directly from the three major credit bureaus.
OUR AUTOMOTIVE-FOCUSED DATA
To better understand and market to your most valuable leads, credit score data is just the beginning. Why not take your Real Time Credit Score Data and complement it with information from our other industry-leading databases?
Each of these resources offers a unique perspective into your leads and their car-buying habits. You can use it to craft many different versions of your automotive advertising campaign that appeal to individual prospects and leads.
ASPEN SUREDRIVE DATA
The more you know about your customers’ current vehicles, the better prepared you’ll be to market to them. That’s the idea behind Aspen SureDrive Data. This database reveals that information in the most granular detail. You can identify the specific:
- Auto style
The value doesn’t end there. You will also be supplied information on the purchase date and purchase type—meaning whether the shopper chose to buy or lease a vehicle.
With this data in hand, you can connect with high-intent customers in a way that is more relevant to them. Know more about their cars, and you can better predict what they’ll be looking for next.
When it comes to marketing, you know that timing is everything. If you hit the customer with the right message but at the wrong time, you won’t see a conversion.
When is the right time, however? Lease/Loan Enders has the information you need to narrow down the timescale. This database gives you a better picture of your customers’ credit scores, as well as key insights regarding their lease or loan:
- Percentage of auto loan remaining
- Number of payment months remaining
- Any paid auto loans that haven’t been renewed
Think about how useful this data could be. Knowing how much time customers have left on their loans and leases allows you to pinpoint when they’ll be gearing up to buy their next new vehicle—and that’s when you want to deploy your marketing campaign.
