American Tire Distributors Inc. (ATD) has launched a $1 million ad campaign highlighting the work of its Tire Pros franchisees. The message is hassle-free customer service.
“This campaign is a tribute to and investment in our franchisees, who truly are the beating heart of our business,” said Ron Sinclair, president of Tire Pros and senior vice president of retail strategy and partnerships for ATD.
"We’ve made a promise to deliver hassle-free service, and Tire Pros franchisees are making that promise a reality every day. That’s the message we’re sending to consumers all over the country through this ad campaign."
“Your first set of wheels didn't come with complications, or strings, or hassles," the voiceover says. "It can be that way again."
In the weeks ahead, the campaign also will roll out a series of never-before-seen social ads, entitled, “Said no one ever.” Each ad features everyday hassles such as a flat tire or flashing engine light standing in the way of life’s routines, major milestones and great adventures, followed by the Tire Pros brand promise to protect consumers from the unnecessary roadblocks in life.
"A flat tire would really make this road trip better… said no one ever,” the ad says, with an image of a car driving down a winding road with mountains in the background. Fading to the Tire Pros branding, the ad continues, “That’s why we make it simple. Hassle-Free. Guaranteed.”
Designed to drive brand awareness and traffic to the more tha 600 Tire Pros locations, the integrated campaign also includes online video, print and radio, and will be available for use in each dealer's local market as well as in regional campaigns.

* dedicated retail sales consultation,
