The Plan

  • Targeting their audience

Targeting their audience

  • Analysing and understanding who their target audience was essential, especially if we planned on using paid media to target them. Using past customer data and the company's buyer persona information we studied what traits make a consumer more likely to purchase. 
  • Using this data we were able to create lookalike audiences and target them appropriately. One goal we were targeting was to increase their website visits, but we didn't just want anyone, we wanted visitors who were likely to become customers.

The Strategy

  • Finding your lookalike
  • Qualified leads to sales

Finding your lookalike

  • Now that we had lookalike audiences and understood who the target audience would be, we used paid media tools such as Facebook Advertising and Google Adwords to focus in on our customer traits. 

  • Once we were attracting the right type of visitors we used remarketing to increase their brand exposure and to follow them once they had left the website. Using financing offers, deals and test drive options, the goal was for the visitor to return to one of our landing pages to exchange their information for the offer resulting in them becoming a lead. 

Qualified leads to sales

  • Landing pages are absolutely essential to any lead generation strategy and the key to capturing information. Each landing page was designed to reflect the offer or deal the lead was exposed to from the paid media and remarketing.
  • In order to learn more or apply for the offer, the lead was asked to exchange their contact information which was passed onto sales and made those initial sales talks a breeze!
