Client Objective.

Volkswagen Canada needed to drive traffic to their website with the objective of increasing both brand awareness and dealership visits. The target audience was initially broad across five Canadian provinces.


The game plan

Investing in channel targeting was essential. Targeting the right channels enabled us to reach the desired mid to high income households that were willing to purchase a vehicle. This in turn allowed us to build up a cookie pool and drive substantial conversions.

  • The campaign was optimized using three different tactics on three platforms
  • Leveraged past experience in auto campaigns to target the most relevant and effective channels
  • Used geographic targeting to ensure sufficient audience reach in all of the provinces specified
  • Retargeted interested audience with pre-roll videos to boost engagement

The retargeting tactic operated on all three platforms from the beginning of the campaign to maximize conversions, followed by re-allocating spend to the two platforms that delivered the best results.


The proof is in the pudding

The individual CPAs for the Build & Price, Comparator, and Locate a Dealer conversion points were all lower than the client’s combined CPA goal.
