CarLotz: Brand Position & Customer Acquisition

Our Challenge

CarLotz has an innovative but complicated business model in the used car space. We needed to break through competition outspending us 100 to 1 with a simple-yet-compelling message, and we needed to create a full-funnel marketing plan to drive more people to buy and sell their cars with us.

The Key Insight

Used car buyers and sellers historically have had two choices: choose between the more lucrative yet dicey world of online classifieds, or the more reliable, yet questionable, savings of a dealership. CarLotz sees this as a false choice.

“CarLotz has a unique consignment model that lets buyers and sellers have it both ways: the savings and profits of a private sale with the convenience and amenities of a dealership,” said Mike Bor, chief executive officer and co-founder of CarLotz. “This business model and brand promise come to life humorously and persuasively in our new campaign.”

Our Message

CarLotz lets you have it both ways.
