Digital Marketing

Our in-house digital services group is staffed by over 100 certified professionals who individually manage search, display, social, native, aggregator and video/radio channels. Their most potent asset is the proprietary Randall-Reilly data from EDA, which provides exclusive insights into equipment ownership, financing, brand preferences, propensity to buy new or used and email/phone number information that can be matched with Google and Facebook audiences for micro-targeting.

As a Google Premier Partner, we are among the first to have access to Google beta products, as well as continual updates on late-breaking insights, best-in-class practices and exclusive briefings.

Digital Marketing Use Cases


A major tire manufacturer wanted to target fleets and owner-operators who were more likely to need new tires. Randall-Reilly performed a custom analysis, using RigDig® data, considering equipment, weight of freight, mileage and other criteria. The analysis yielded a sizeable custom list of targets with emails/phone numbers matching to Facebook and micro-targeting their special offer.


An equipment repair company wanted to significantly increase its leads. Randall-Reilly used search to capture prospects actively looking for repair service. We then developed a custom list using our tagged CCJ Audience for Facebook targeting, while leveraging CCJ’s website and newsletter to provide the needed coverage.


A new toll management service wanted to increase awareness and improve lead generation. Randall-Reilly executed a display campaign on CCJ’s website to build awareness and drive traffic to the service’s landing page for conversion. We then added a search campaign to capture prospects actively researching toll management options. Lastly, we leveraged our tagged CCJ audience to execute a match to Facebook for micro-targeting and lead nurturing.
