The Challenge

DS Automobiles sought a 'high fashion' feel for its DS-4 campaign launch in Israel. Alongside other channels and platforms, the Lubinski Group tasked Outbrain Brand Studio to build up its presence in a new market, typically traditional in its choice of vehicles. With a need to drive awareness and engagement, the brand needed to introduce the luxurious details and technology of the DS-4 to the market.

The Solution

Brand Studio’s design team built a custom experience that stretched the digital canvas, pushing the boundaries of open web marketing and delighting users. A full-screen format with multiple interactive elements gave path to several engagement touchpoints. Users were able to swipe multiple cards to learn more about the car’s features, and then view a 15-second showcase video. In addition, users who tapped on the creative would be redirected to the DS landing page, driving conversions toward orders.

  • Video:

    Users learning more about the car model helped deliver stronger video engagement. Not only were 89% of video views unmuted by the viewer, but the campaign achieved a 62% video completion rate.

  • Open Web Audiences:

    The most engaged audiences had three brand interactions - swiping, video views, and click-through – in one customized experience.

Our goal for the campaign was to build awareness in environments where we have previously seen valuable audiences and results. However, with these new, custom experiences, the engagement rate of 7.73% significantly exceeded those expectations and drove the best conversions-to-orders vs. all other channels.”
