To creatively engage the right customers, Audi Taiwan decided to explore ads that click to Messenger. Audi Taiwan developed a series of video ads that included a clear call-to-action to start a conversation in Messenger.

When people clicked, they could learn more about available cars with the Audi Mobile Assistant and conveniently book a test-drive without having to pick up the phone or send an email.

With the help of its media agency, PHD, Audi Taiwan showed the ads to people with an interest in cars. The brand also served the ads to Custom Audiences of people who had liked its Facebook page, and those who had viewed its promotional video. It then created lookalike audiences based on people who had watched the video ads to reach even more potential customers.

With Messenger as a gateway, Audi Taiwan efficiently connected with interested people, sparked engaging conversations about its cars and provided a seamless and optimized mobile experience for potential customers, resulting in a 42% increase in quality leads compared to other digital platforms.
