Marketing Regions For Automotive Conquest Advertising In The United States

National Sales Areas For Car Dealerships & Automotive Franchise Groups

Automotive dealerships are assigned a designated market area (DMA) by their automobile manufacturer to keep one car dealer from invading on another dealership’s sales area who is selling same brand(s). This breakdown starts at the regional and state level and then works down into county, city and zip code areas which designate where each individual car dealership is allowed to advertise within. This guarantees each individual car dealer or franchise automotive group advertises within their DMA.

The United States consists of four marketing regions – Northeast, Midwest, South and West. There are also a total of 9 marketing areas which fall under these regions.
