Client background
What they were looking for:
An automotive group in Delaware wanted to conquest beyond their state’s borders. They already had a new brand, but needed an agency to help execute their vision.
What we found:
Winner Automotive is actually a part of a polished, global enterprise that just happened to have started in Delaware. We wanted to take their existing branding and develop it further, adding a sense of that scale and polish to all their messaging.

Winner wanted to “win” their backyard while growing their reach. By making tier 1-style media that exhibited heaps of polish, along with sophisticated messaging, Winner saw leads and sales rise. Branded search connoting growing brand awareness also lifted.

How we did it
Winner Automotive had several distinct brands, all with distinct messaging needs and goals. Their Audi store, Audi of Wilmington, is one of the more sophisticated automotive retailers we’ve encountered. Winner Subaru and Winner Volkswagen were more family-focused. And their Ford and Hyundai stores had different needs.
The stores faced very different challenges from a marketing standpoint. Audi Wilmington sits on the edge of the Philadelphia DMA and ran into high competition in advertising paired with high costs. The non-luxury points in Dover were the only OEMs within an hour drive and needed to focus on conquesting other OEMs.
Messaging and
To overcome both marketing challenges, we created content around the aspirational identities of the target consumers, positioning Winner as the brand that connected the consumer to the vehicle that made them smile every day. To avoid the competitive placements and high costs, we focused on deployed across YouTube pre-roll and social media to create content that stood out against the product/payment creative that failed to differentiate Winner’s competitors.
The brand process
Working within their new brand, we developed a new tagline: “Where do you win?” It encapsulated the high-level feeling of satisfaction that Winner wanted each of its customers to feel. We used this new branding, along with new visual elements, in all their new media.
