How it works

With intelligent user-tracking and our NetDirector® Stock software, we make sure your ads are always in front of the right audience. These ads are then shown to users via their Facebook newsfeed, promoting your available stock directly to those who have expressed an interest online, or exhibited behaviours suggesting they are in-market for a newer vehicle.

Using key information from NetDirector® Stock, simple, mobile-optimised ad units are automatically created featuring imagery and data such as make, model and price, alongside bespoke copy. We then target Facebook users whose on-site behaviour and intent indicates they are likely to be interested in your vehicles, products, and services.

We’ll help you automatically create compelling, vehicle specific ads for Facebook from your stock. It’s a complete, end-to-end advertising solution for vehicle retailers of any size or discipline.


“Over a two month period of being live with Facebook Automotive Inventory Ads, we received 89 completed enquiry forms.  The ads delivered an average cost of just £5.53 per lead as a result.  In addition, the campaign also generated 43 web enquiries, equating to an overall Cost Per Lead of £7.44.

Alongside this, the catalogue sales campaign we are running has so far generated over 9,499 used car detail views, which results in a cost of only £0.05 per view.

The impressive efficiency of the campaign, and the real-world value it delivered to our business means we are very happy with the results."
