Facebook Auto Inventory Ads
Facebook Automotive Inventory Ads are fully automated ads that are optimized for Facebook users actually in the market for a vehicle. Auto Inventory Ads use your vehicle catalog, Facebook pixel and user engagement on Facebook to show ads to specific in-market shoppers within a radius of your dealership
Unlike Facebook Marketplace alone, Auto Inventory ads are proactive, and Facebook will show your inventory to users looking for similar vehicles across all of Facebook's destinations, including Facebook Marketplace.
Once set up, the process is fully automated and dealers can simply adjust their ad spend, and start, pause, and stop their ad campaigns anytime.
Drive Targeted Traffic to your VDPs
Unlike most automotive marketplaces, Facebook Auto Inventory ads can be set up to drive targeted traffic to your dealer website, where you can control the car shopping experience. When a user clicks an ad for more details, the user can be directed to the VDP (vehicle detail page) for that specific vehicle.
Once the user is on the VDP of your dealer website, he can then be prompted to view your other vehicles, schedule a test drive, fill out a credit app, etc.
Even a minimum ad spend of $5.00 per day can drive hundreds of unique, in-market visitors to your website per month.
On-Facebook Destination Ads
As an alternative to drving traffic to your VDPs, dealers can opt for On-Facebook Destination for Automotive Inventory Ads instead, which directs users to a mobile-optimized shopping experience on the Facebook platform.
When a shopper clicks on an auto dealer’s ad, they’ll land on a dynamic Vehicle Detail Page (VDP) on Facebook that’s created using information from the dealer’s auto catalog. From this VDP, shoppers can research vehicles, discover additional inventory and connect directly with dealers via Facebook Messenger, lead , phone call or by visiting a dealership in person.
Facebook Destination for Automotive Inventory Ads offer a frictionless shopping experience, which eliminates the possiblity a user might experience frustration by being directed off the Facebook platform.
