The challenge

In the automotive industry, applying for a test drive is one of the most crucial steps in a customer’s journey; an indication that the prospect has the intent to buy a car. For automotive brands, the vast majority of cars are sold via in-store visits compared to other channels like email, phone calls, and more. Therefore, getting a prospect to sign up for a test drive can significantly improve a brand’s overall conversion rate by directly impacting car sales numbers. With this in mind, the marketing team at Nissan was looking to increase the number of test drive applications for the cars listed on its website.

The solution

Nissan leveraged the power of Insider’s personalization suite to run a variety of experiments aimed at increasing test drive applications. The marketing team created a segment of customers with a higher chance of signing up for a test drive. This smart segment was created after defining a variety of qualifiers like the number of pages visited, type of pages visited, duration of sessions, number of sessions and more. They also targeted based on other behavioral traits, such as cursor location on the page, scroll location, and more.

If the visitor showed such behavior, an exit intent overlay was shown for prospects to leave their information to receive an email or a callback about the car they’d been looking at. Nissan representatives would then contact prospects to schedule test drives.

“The exit intent template was simple to set up on our website, and we used Insider’s intuitive drag-and-drop editor to ensure it was perfectly Nissan-branded. Insider’s templates are a gold mine, making it so easy to launch new initiatives quickly. And these campaigns have a massive impact on our key metrics: a 53.6% increase in bookings to be exact!”

Next, Nissan targeted a segment of customers who were active on dedicated car pages. The visitors on these pages were served a custom header banner with a “Call me” button to receive a callback. Nissan representatives would then contact prospects to provide further information and schedule test drives for interested browsers.
