The aftermarket is now going online, where more and more afterparts are being sold as customers become comfortable with making online purchases.

The current ownership fully understands what excites and motivates vehicle owners about the auto aftermarket field, having been passionate about automobiles and racing cars for decades. As a result, the company works with the very best brand names in the industry, including many new ones that came online after the pandemic lockdowns shifted consumer spending online.
With strong connections to its customers through social media, the company now enjoys strong peaks in sales during the first few months of the year as customers get their tax returns, and again in the fall and especially around the holidays. The brand does particularly well during Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales.
The company is careful about selecting the right products to market and has honed its skills in finding reliable and trustworthy vendors. They work with business-savvy vendors offering quality items available for timely shopping. As a result, with 9,000+ SKUs to offer, the company normally stocks just $10,000 worth of inventory.
This has also given the brand expertise in automobiles and how to market auto parts, a skill that plenty of their competitors lack. In a highly competitive field such as this one, that’s a major advantage that a new owner inherits.
The company also designs and manufactures some products in-house, by supplying concepts, laser scans, and OEM parts to their manufacturing partner. With most products conveniently Dropshipped, the company only stocks certain products in a 200-square-foot warehouse, and the company’s daily tasks are handled by four employees who over sales, website and inventory management, and customer support.
Marketing remains one of the company’s greatest strengths. The current ownership has become an expert at managing PPC ad campaigns on Google, but they also generate plenty of organic traffic to their website through their sophisticated social media marketing campaigns. Their fast-growing followings on Instagram and Facebook continue to expand their customer base and include postings from two sponsored drivers who write compelling stories on their platforms to keep their customer engagement high.
They also have a video marketing campaign on YouTube geared toward owners and fans of Mustangs with the turbocharged EcoBoost engine.

That’s complemented by an SEO program that focuses on content creation done in-house, including original high-definition photos to attract more viewers to their website.
This brand has built up a huge and loyal following by providing customers with a platform where users can access product information from the company’s owners, who have hands-on experience with the auto accessories they sell. That knowledge and expertise have given them a sharp competitive edge in this field and enabled the brand to stand out as an industry leader.
For a buyer, this company’s strong recurring revenues and its experienced team allow them to focus on scaling this company and appealing to an even wider net of car enthusiasts.
