Digital Marketing Use Cases


A major manufacturer wanted to promote their new parts warranty program to aftermarket service providers. Randall-Reilly used the audience of Truck Parts & Service to target the service providers and went on to use RigDig® to create a custom list of aftermarket providers for targeting. The marketing strategy, included matching the custom list to Facebook for targeting, as well as an email campaign.


A maker of remanufactured fuel pumps wanted to increase their business. The Randall-Reilly SEO team developed a custom keyword list for search, based on their expertise and an analysis of the product category. Our tagged Truck Parts & Service audience was used for special offer targeting and inclusion in the magazine and newsletter added needed coverage.


A diesel engine oil producer wanted to increase awareness for their new product line. Randall-Reilly leveraged display advertising on Truck Parts & Service to improve awareness and drive traffic to the client’s landing page for a special dealer loader offer. To raise their profile, we recommended adding the Truck Parts and Service daily newsletter to their marketing mix and cosponsoring the Truck Parts & Service Distributor of the Year Award.
