Edmunds Launches New Innovative Ad Product for Car Dealers
Aug 9 16
Edmunds launched Edmunds Ad Solutions, a new mobile-optimized ad product for dealers to target in-market car shoppers on Facebook and Instagram. Ad Solutions uses exclusive first-party shopping data from Edmunds to serve shoppers with highly relevant native ads on Facebook and Instagram to drive buyer-traffic directly to dealer sites. The data also is used to identify and target "lookalike" shoppers -- individuals who show similar shopping behavior -- on those premium partner sites. The company engineers worked closely with Facebook's solutions engineering team to design and build an end-to-end automatic ads buying system that leverages Facebook's marketing APIs and dynamic ads platform. As a result, Edmunds Ad Solutions gives subscribing dealers added exposure to Edmunds' vast audience of highly qualified shoppers. A national pilot found that Edmunds Ad Solutions delivered 20 times more click-through traffic to dealer sites when compared to a Google rich media gallery display automotive click-through benchmark study, November 2015 -December 2015. Dealers in the pilot program also enjoyed up to a 61% increase in new visitors to their sites, as well as a 50% increase in overall visitor site engagement.
