The Challenge

MMR_Blog_Instagram_1080x1080_HYUNDAIHyundai France wanted to drive local awareness around their dealers’ network to increase foot traffic during Open Days. To do so, Hyundai France needed a solution to effectively allocate their budget across their 176 dealers, based on each location’s importance, value and potential.

The Facebook Store Visit Solution was the best suited to meet Hyundai’s needs, however the algorithm automatically optimizes delivery based on ad performance meaning that budget allocation per dealer was difficult to control. A manual set up of the 176 campaigns could have been a way to handle it, but the time required as well as the effort of trying to manage that number of campaigns at once, made it a non-viable option.

The Results

They were able to ensure greater local visibility with an average coverage rate of 85% across the smaller regions where visibility had historically been more difficult. One standout example was the town of Albertville and its surrounding region, where the campaign was seen by 95% of Facebook users targeted. Added to that, Hyundai’s local campaign on Facebook efficiently complemented the TV plan, indeed 41% of the people exposed on Facebook had not been exposed to the ad on TV.
