Here’s a great example of how Sky AdSmart campaigns can provide businesses with that all important ROI. Hendy dealerships smashed their targets the help of a Sky AdSmart campaign focused on gaining business in their local area.

Without travelling far, Hendy has come a long way from the small bicycle repair shop opened in Whitchurch in 1859.Today, the Hendy Group has in excess of twenty premises stretching across southern England from Devon to West Sussex, housing over 550 staff and handling over £200m worth of business.

Hendy holds Ford, Mazda, Kia and Honda franchises, plus Ford and Iveco van and truck franchises. The company handles all aspects including sales, servicing, parts, hire, accident repairs and Rapid Fit centres. Hendy had used TV previously but found it hadn’t work for them and had reverted to more traditional advertising routes.

Hendy Group Case Study


Having used traditional TV advertising in the past, Hendy Ford found that the cost of using the mass market medium was not right for them and chose a more targeted/regional approach to advertising – SEO, PPC, Press and Radio.
