What Our Clients Say About Us?

“We have worked with the guys from Catalyst for a few years now. We have engaged them for design work for eDM’s, MMS and some print ads over the time. Their creative is spot on and their turnaround times are quick. I have found them to an efficient and effective marketing agency who gets automotive.

If you would like more info, you can call me at the dealership on (08) 8223 7666 or reach out to me on LinkedIn.”

Jess Nash / Marketing Manager, City Holden

“I have worked with the team at Catalyst on a monthly basis for 6-7 years now. Catalyst are a true business partner – we are in it together. As partners, we have been both really focused on driving results for the dealership. We work closely on the strategy, the campaigns and the dealership results. About 5 years ago Kain suggested that if we adopted a continuous, month-in-month out marketing strategy, taking hot offers to the market, that in time, we would create the “Harvey Norman Effect”, as he called it. We are on the shopping list more than ever before. Over time, we earned a number of national awards, including National Dealer of the Year. This was due to a combination of strong internal processes and having the volume of leads to sell to.”

Todd Collie / General Sales Manager, Port Lincoln Mazda, Hyundai & Volkswagen

“Our group has been working with the team at Catalyst for about 18 months now, on a full-time basis. The guys at Catalyst are proactive at getting our advertising to market in a planned and timely manner – I don’t have to think about it as they are all across it. Earlier this year, we briefed Catalyst on a challenge we had with Volkswagen demo’s which weren’t moving and had started to build up, as can happen. Catalyst developed a digital strategy and designed all the digital advertising for Google, Facebook, a video and a personalised landing page to capture more leads. Our website leads went up, and the part I care about most, is that we moved a lot of the demo’s.

Shane Beaney / Dealer Principal, Barossa Auto Group

“I worked with Kain and his team of highly experienced automotive graphic designers during my time as Digital Marketing Manager at Bill Buckle Auto Group. Whilst I created and developed our digital marketing strategy, the guys at Catalyst assisted me with the creative execution of my campaigns in a timely manner. The creative was consistently sharp and it was so much easier working with an agency who understood automotive. I didn’t have to provide them with the all the imagery for the makes and models because they were already across that.”

Hi, I’m Kain Vodic,

I have been in the business of growing business for the last 15 years, including the last 9 years operating my own business, Catalyst.

Previous to that, I had worked for Salefest Advertising, which at the time was Australia’s largest automotive advertising agency and who looked after over 100 car dealerships advertising accounts.

During this time, I returned to university and studied to my Masters of Marketing with the sole purpose of combining industry experience & know-how, with solid academic foundations.

I now lead a highly talented and committed team of graphic designers and digital marketing strategists who have collectively created over 10,000 car ads.

I get a real buzz out of seeing our dealer clients grow their sales and win awards from their manufacturers.

I’m on a constant search for more effective and efficient ways to deliver results, with a real focus on measurable growth whilst cutting through the usual marketing industry BS.

My 5 Step Lead Generator system is the culmination of all this experience, allowing suitable dealerships to work alongside me and my highly experienced team to generate outstanding results.
