How GroundTruth helped Toyota steer high-intent customers to their dealerships

As Toyota’s first test using Cost Per Visit, the month-long campaign drove over 1,200 visits to specified dealerships in the Delaware, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey. The majority of customers was driven by Location-Based Audience targeting.

The campaign’s aim was to drive customers onto dealership lots, so our team optimized by targeting audiences more likely to visit Toyota. We saw success with targeting customers In-Market for Auto, Park Lovers, and Car Renters. This test was also successful in driving incremental visits to some of Toyota’s smaller dealerships (by wholesale).


Visits driven to specified dealerships


"Our campaign with GroundTruth allowed for us to have greater insight into how audiences in our market both consume and take physical action with our ads. Upon further review, the results showed interesting correlations between store performance and audience visitation—adding another sophisticated layer of intelligence for both the agency and our client. We feel that this effort helped to drive specific, targeted shoppers to our dealer locations.”
