Why Intelligence is Important to Selling and Marketing to the Automotive Vertical

The automotive OEM market should see healthy growth in 2023, but the last couple of years have taught them to stay flexible. Companies are looking for ways to improve global supply chains, especially for semiconductors, and increase electric vehicle manufacture. As more buyers shift to digital shopping, firms are considering direct-to-consumer sales strategies. And with the increase in technology required for modern vehicle manufacture, many companies are looking for vendor partners to augment their internal capabilities.

If your team is aiming at the automotive industry, the right intelligence about each account will make the difference between a successful close and a stalled deal. Start by understanding the business objectives driving tech spend, such capturing more autonomous vehicle sales or monetizing driver data. Then map the corporate power structure and purchasing procedures so you’ll know how to build your case effectively.

Getting the right intelligence fast is nearly impossible without an inside champion, like an Emissary Advisor. Emissary Advisors are former executives in your automotive industry accounts. They know the people you need to impress and what impresses them. With an Advisor’s insight, you’ll run a savvy sales strategy that stays on point from initial meetings to procurement.
