Automotive: blogs & photography

This page is dedicated to automotive storytelling and the contentmarketing (autoblogs, reviews), photography, memorabilia and sales that go along with it. For several years I was lead-editor at Onschatbare Klassieker magazine, RS Porsche Magazine and SL Mercedes Revue. As from Juni 2019 I write and photograph for commercial automotive parties and I am an occasional consultant / intermediary in selling classic cars. Ask for more info.

Modern marketing starts from a Buyer Persona perspective which is a good and objective basis for Buyer Based Marketing. I use Market Demand Insights provided via interviews and research to meet todays buyers expectations. Product based marketing is not what your customers are looking for. To get to their solution or touch their dreams todays buyers journeys need additional information to the story that’s already in the heads and hearts of your prospects. Help your market with their Buyers Journey and provide for the valuable steps towards engagement and conversion. Blogs and social media may have a more important role in this than you might think. And a website? Well, last 10 years markets use social media to search and find the information to make progress towards a conversion. And yes, this usually takes a while. That’s why it works so well.

Content marketing to reach an audience for your car(s)
Inbound Marketing (landing pages) and Social Media (storytelling) will be in your favour to reach your audience and get them to buy, or at least to get them aware of your proposition. My role is to join and connect your story to the Buyer’s Journey. I use my 25 years of B2B- and B2C-business experience with journalist knowledge, graphic design skills and commercial feel. My purpose is to connect with commercial parties in the automotive industry and provide for serious content marketing material (background articles, reviews, blogs, reportage) to built an Online Presence that cannot be ignored by todays demanding markets.

Interested in inbound and content marketing for your propositions?
Please mail me to exchange ideas. I am looking forward to meet companies who’d like to know their customers so well that they can anticipate on their needs and meet their expectations.

You might be familiar with the Dinkel name. Dinkel is my online profilename on Pistonheads: the UK’s biggest motoring forum. For about 15 years I post my blogs there because it’s one of the best and diverse car communities in the world. It’s fun, interesting and educational and Pistonheads has a vast audience of passionate readers.
There’s a big chance you landed on this page because you’ve found one of my pictures or have read one of my many Pistonheads autoblogs. Scroll down this page to find a full list of Car Photography and Autoblogs or explore Dinkel’s topics on Pistonheads.

Google ‘Dinkel + Pistonheads + type of car’ to find my photos on the internet. Free pictures are 700 pixels wide and have a © watermark. Please respect the copyright for reproduction. Ask for the big file if you want one.
Are you interested to use my photography? Drop me a line and let’s see what we can do. I work on commission: reportage (text and / or images), storytelling, articles for web and magazine.

Today everyone use their laptops, smartphones and tablets to search and find. Your prospects (your future buyers) are also looking on the internet to find the car which they are passionate about. Do you like to know more about offering your car via the internet? Just drop me a mail to discuss about this subject.
