Marketing for Electric Vehicle and Component Manufacturers

Marketing for Electric Vehicle and Component Manufacturers

Without a doubt, the electric vehicle market segment is rapidly transforming the way people travel. Every auto-maker is jockeying to get into position to be the go-to resource, creating plenty of opportunities for creative marketing strategies to accelerate growth.

How to Increase Engagement

With the transition to short-form written and video content, there's no need to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars creating that one amazing commercial. In fact, social media marketing is done best by creating shorter, more compelling pieces of content and then having your audience engage and reshare those posts.

Spontaneous, genuine, everyday behind-the-scenes interactions, without the perfect light, without the perfect sound, drive better results because they're authentic and easier for people to relate to.

Take Action Now

The time for electric vehicle and component manufacturers to rapidly expand their social media audiences is now. Those who get a head start will benefit for years to come over those who don't immediately take action by growing their online audiences.

Grow Influence and Authority

Below is a simple 5-step strategy that the most successful, authoritative, and influential brands online utilize, and you can do the same.

Rule 1: Crawl Before You Walk

Rule 2: Keep It Simple

Rule 3: Be Consistent

Rule 4: Have Your Audience Do the Work for You

Rule 5: Rinse and Repeat

People understand simplicity. It's easy for electric vehicle and component manufacturers to get technical and use all kinds of insider lingo, but it's not going to provide any benefit when marketing online. The simpler, more direct, the better.

Create a Mission Statement

For example, an electric vehicle battery manufacturer may say, "Our battery charges 75% faster, get's 50% more distance, and allows people to have the freedom to go wherever they want to go in their electric vehicle." Simple statements like this are what people understand, and this is how electric vehicle and component manufacturers need to speak to their social media audiences.
