The Importance of Professional Car Photography for Automotive Dealerships

Car advertising photography is a powerful marketing tool for your automotive dealership. On its own, professional automotive photography makes it easier than ever to showcase your cars and draw buyers to your dealership. When used with detailing services, car photography helps you maximize your profits and sales, boost your Customer Satisfaction Index (CSI) score, and more.

At Diamond Dealer Services, we pair our car detailing and automotive dealership photography services with an all-inclusive rate. First, our team details your cars so they look their best both inside and out. From here, we take professional-grade photos so you can show buyers all that your vehicles have to offer.

Ultimately, automotive photography is becoming a must-have for car dealerships. With a clear understanding of car photography and all that it entails, you can get the most value out of it. 

What Is Professional Automotive Photography?

Dealerships can use professional automotive dealership car photography to show off their vehicles’ interior and exterior features, including:

  • Bumpers
  • Cabin
  • Doors
  • Engine
  • Hood
  • Wheels and tires

Not all car showroom photography is created equal. For example, you can take photographs of your vehicles on your own. However, if you have never done so before, your photos may be blurry. And if you publish these images on your website, they can inadvertently do more harm than good for your dealership.

On the other hand, you can hire a professional photographer to capture crisp, clear images of your cars. Doing so speeds up the process of getting high-resolution images of all of your cars’ features. Most importantly, you can continue to focus on what you do best: providing quality vehicles that surpass your customers’ expectations.

Benefits of Automobile Photography for Dealerships

Car photography is a great investment for automotive dealerships — here are five reasons why:

1. Automotive Photos Can Drive Profits and Sales.  

Eye-catching car photos capture buyers’ attention. They give buyers a good idea about your cars’ features and if your vehicles line up with their requirements. As buyers see stunning images of your cars online, they may contact your dealership to learn more about your vehicles. They may also visit your showroom to test-drive or purchase your cars.

2. Professional Car Photography Delivers an Outstanding Return on Investment.

Hiring professionals to handle your car advertising photography frees up time and resources for your dealership. Rather than commit time and resources to photograph your vehicles, crop the images, and publish them online, a professional photographer takes care of everything for you. By leaving your automotive photography to professionals, you can commit more time and energy to handling your customers’ requests. On top of that, you can boost your dealership’s productivity and efficiency.

3. Professional Car Photos Can Give Your Dealership a Competitive Edge.

Automotive photography can separate your dealership from its rivals. You can share top-notch car photos with buyers, which can lead to sales. Meanwhile, as buyers purchase your cars, your dealership’s CSI score may increase. As your CSI score goes up, your dealership can earn rewards and establish itself as the premier choice for cars in your area. Over time, this can help you optimize customer loyalty and retention.

4. Professional Car Photos Are High-Quality. 

Research indicates 95% of buyers use digital tools to find information about vehicles. As buyers shop for cars on your website, they are likely to look for photos. If you take photos of your own cars, your images may look unclear. Or, you may share photos that show only a few of your cars’ best features. By hiring a professional photographer, you can quickly and easily get high-quality photos of your cars. A professional photographer knows how to produce photos that put your cars in the best-possible light. When you publish these images online, you are well equipped to stir up plenty of interest in your vehicles. 

5. Automotive Photos Can Help You Make the Most of Your Advertising Spend. 

On average, an automotive lead costs $250, according to research. Every penny counts with automotive dealership marketing. With professional automotive photography, you can generate leads without breaking your budget. You can partner with a professional photographer that produces first-rate photos for your website. Also, you can incorporate these images into your advertising campaigns. As car buyers view your photos, you can drive leads and reduce your cost per lead.
