Promoting Citroën DS line to our target audience on Facebook as urban and trendy solution that enhances and emphasizes personality.

Main idea

Our Facebook marketing strategy was focused on content – quality post updates with the most attractive photos chosen and features and context - provide reach experience with Citroën DS interactive app.
1) Providing fun experience via interactive and appealing Facebook application in order to acquire Citroën fans and create buzz around the DS line. ✓

2) Developing and implement superb content strategy for DS line. ✓

Solution

In order to avoid the “standard” and boring photo contests who are annoying more and more fans by appearing regularly in their news feed, we decided to launch more exciting and interesting campaign and in addition to make our audience to learn more about Citroën DS line. That’s how we came up with the idea for memory game application.
All pieces in the memory were parts from DS line automobiles that our participants need to remember.
This contest was organized in 3 phases and the main winner from each phase was awarded 48 hours “personal” experience with the product i.e. “Citroën DS3 (first week), Citroën DS4 (second week) and the third week winner got Citroën DS5 test drive.”
