Search Optics is very excited with the initial results we’ve been able to achieve for our customers as a certified partner in Speed Shift Media’s Auto Audience Network.

Speed Shift Media today announced that Search Optics®, one of the nation’s leading digital marketing solutions providers with a specialty in automotive, has become the first certified partner for the Auto AudienceTM Network (AAN), powered by Speed Shift Media. In early use of the network, Search Optics has realized 2% click through rates and 20% ad engagement rates to deliver high value and a high rate of return to its clients.

As the first in-image automotive ad network, AAN is highly effective and developed with the tier three auto dealer in mind. At its core is Speed Shift Media's dynamic ad serving capability, which allows live inventory data to be delivered in an in-image ad unit native to each publisher in the AAN. Speed Shift Media is uniquely able to serve ad units matching the make, model, trim and year of the vehicle being reviewed by the publisher.

“AAN represents a transformational shift in automotive marketing – one that gives the dealer new exposure in the automotive path to purchase,” said Steve Kump, President and CTO, Speed Shift Media. “While traditionally the review environment has been the domain of the large brand agencies’ media buys, the tier three auto dealer has never been able to consistently garner the attention of an auto intender at the crucial point of vehicle review and comparison – until the arrival of AAN.”

Search Optics offers custom websites along with an integrated digital marketing platform that supports more than 1,000 automotive dealers with results-driven solutions. The company takes pride in providing proven, effective solutions and services to its customers, and is staffed by a team of creative digital marketing experts across offices in San Diego, Detroit and Toronto.

According to Christian Fuller, Chief Relationship Officer, Search Optics, adding the Auto Audience Network to the company’s product mix was clearly the right decision. “Search Optics is very excited with the initial results we’ve been able to achieve for our customers as a certified partner in Speed Shift Media’s Auto Audience Network. The network provides an excellent opportunity to showcase dealer inventory in the most contextually-relevant places without interrupting the user experience. It truly is a win for all parties involved,” said Fuller.

With more than a decade in data-driven display advertising solutions, Speed Shift Media’s significant knowledge of the path to purchase and understanding of auto dealers’ needs has enabled it to create the unique AAN. "We have been extremely pleased by the results and, more than that, we are excited about the positive response from our customers and partners, such as Search Optics,” said Kump.
