Peugeot, a leading French automotive brand with long sales history in Malaysia engaged Elixus Agency in March 2020 to help increase the number of qualified leads for their new SUV models. However a nationwide Movement Control Order (MCO) was implemented in response to the Covid-19 pandemic on the day campaigns were launched in April, leading all the showrooms to be closed.
Despite the closure of the showroom due to MCO, we took the opportunity to lay a strong foundation of Peugeot branding and awareness among the increasing number of online users who were stuck at home. In order to generate leads while reducing the Cost per Lead, Motionable created various motion videos to integrate them into the full funnel marketing strategy:
We articulated multiple ad components (images, videos, titles, descriptions and CTAs) to create dynamic video ads, maximizing results for each impression served. Thanks to personalised creative variations each person viewing the ad received a customized journey.
We created several design variations to match the ad angles (branding, generic, promotional) created for AB testing, to find out the best performing ad angle and creative variation with the lowest cost per lead.
We also adapted Peugeot’s existing television commercials, that audiences had already been exposed to through offline channels, to create mobile-first video formats that were utilised as creative content for lead generation and brand awareness campaigns. These reformated TVC’s proved to be one of the best performing ad formats utlised in large part due to the connection that the audiences may have aleady developed offline
Motionable created mobile-first ads, within our brand guidelines and adapted it to the different platforms we advertised on, with different angles to A/B-test what resonated most with the audience.
The process was overall very lean between us, our Performance marketing agency Elixus and Motionable team.
