Hunt Auto’s Omni-Social Ad Strategy In Action 💪
Hunt Auto wanted to be the most innovative dealer in the automotive industry. They dealership is committed to being on the cutting edge of digital marketing, and keeping their dealership ahead of the curve—and ahead of the competition. However, to do so required a strong knowledge of not only what new opportunities exist across all of the social platforms, but also how to maximize them.
By partnering with Dealers United, Hunt Auto was able to be first in line to beta test and leverage the latest automotive omnisocial ad features. For example, when TikTok launched their new ad format, TikTok Video Shopping Ads, the Hunt team immediately worked with Dealers United to maximize them. To make the most of this exciting feature, Hunt Auto recorded videos tailored specifically to SUV moms and truck buyers, then added their live, scrolling SUV or truck inventory over the video. Combined with advanced targeting that perfectly aligned with their ads with their intended audience, this is still one of Hunt Auto’s favorite ad strategies to-date!
