Campaign objective

Jeep India main’s goal with this Facebook campaign was to drive an awareness of their brand, and especially about acquiring leads and increasing sales for the launch of this all-new made-in-India SUV.

Jeep Compass and the campaign

The solution Jeep India embarks on Jeep Compass, this all-new SUV is the adventure technology of shifting to a high gear. The #MakeInIndia initiative was what the SUV automaker marketer took up in bringing this campaign to life, and with this, the marketers used the Facebook platform to campaign this new launch of Jeep Compass with an aim to reach the target audience of people aged 25-45.

Jeep India used the full-funnel marketing approach for people to follow them up with their discovery, comprehension and consideration stages, and through all these, they were hoping to encourage people to consider booking by leaving a deposit to view or test-drive the Jeep Compass.

The campaign first ran a teaser with a video ad and acquired awareness about the upcoming SUV. Jeep then maximized its reach and frequency buying by showing ads to their prospective customers.


Phases of the Facebook campaign:

1st phase: Jeep installed Facebook pixel on the vehicle. The interested customers who then clicked through these, got to learn more about the features on the Jeep India website to track anyone who takes an action by clicking on their Facebook ads. For example, when someone visits their website and makes a purchase (an action), Facebook pixel gets triggered and reports a purchase. These customers were then grouped as Custom Audience and were again approached in the further stages.

2nd phase: Once the Jeep Compass was launched, the company then started running photo ads and carousel formats where they had showcased the features of the vehicle. The interested customers who then clicked through these, got to learn more about the features on the Jeep India website.

Jeep Compass - Facebook Campaign Phases

3rd phase: The campaign did not stop here and to encourage more online booking, a third phase was on a run elaborating more on the features displayed on the previous ads, highlighting the qualities and capabilities of the car.

Retargeting was employed in this phase where Jeep targeted people who have involved themselves in the other two phases, using the website information they acquired via the installed Facebook pixel.

4th phase: Jeep used lead ads to increase the chances of wrapping up sales. So those who have watched the video ads would form the Custom Audience, and these audiences will be targeted by the lead ads to acquire quality leads.

5th phase: To reach even more potential customers in a cost-efficient way, Jeep then created a Lookalike Audience based on its video viewers. With an audience like this one, the company created an Audience Network and extended their campaign beyond the Facebook network reaching people likely to make a purchase. This had Jeep’s brand metrics effectively boosted.

Facebook advertisement products used in the campaign


Jeep India achieved a variety of ad objectives using the Carousel format which gave them more space in driving the brand stories. The carousel format provided them up to ten carousel cards, i.e., a single ad with the carousel format lets you add up to ten images or videos, and each with its own link. This meant more creative space available for Jeep to use, and with this Jeep developed a story about the brand across each carousal card by highlighting different products, showcasing specific details about one product, service or promotion.

Using the carousel format, Jeep had the advantage of experiencing:

  • A roomier ad space to tell their stories or showcase their products
  • An interactive ad space, where people could see their whole story by just swiping or clicking through the carousel, and
  • A flexible ad space, having up to ten cards at their hand to show their creativity in the photos or videos stories.

Lead adverts:

Jeep India used Facebook Lead ads and acquired customized forms of quality leads for their business with the help of CRM integration support. Jeep had a way of an easy lead generation process with the lead ads, allowing them to have more conversations with a fewer drop-offs. All in all, lead ads meant for Jeep an effortless conversation between them and the customers.

The use of lead ads is especially thoughtful for mobile users where users had to just give in a few taps, and this would lead them to great things. So, people had to simply tab on the lead ad and there a form pops up, which is already prepopulated with the contact information people have already shared with Facebook. In this way, Jeep India has the form ready to be sent back to them, and this means they get the information they wanted. This is how Jeep generated a qualified lead for their business.

Customer acquisition with lead ads took could take many forms and Jeep went way beyond leads with this.

Video adverts:
