The Story:

Volkswagen Middle East partnered with Snapchat and social agency Socialize to be the first Automotive brand outside the US to test Dynamic ads by launching the solution in Saudi Arabia for for their three SUV models Tiguan, Teramont and Touareg.

The Solution: Dynamic Ads

Initially designed for E-commerce, we managed to customize the Dynamic Ads setup by tracking and taking signals from Volkswagen Middle East auto related events and fine tuned the product catalog to fit the auto requirements.

The Results

The results far exceeded Volkswagen Middle East’s expectations : In just 14 days, the campaign delivered 194 sign ups for test drives which drove further efficiencies than other bottom of the funnel activities on Snapchat; and overall better results vs other platforms. Dynamic Ads was able to serve more relevant vehicles to users and hence achieving strong results.

“At Volkswagen we are focused on delivering a seamless customer experience, and that extends all the way to our paid social campaigns. With Snapchat Dynamic Ads we were able to provide more personalized content to our potential customers while improving business impact. We are thrilled with the results we've seen so far and excited to continue investing in these types of campaigns going forward”.
