The task

“Leads from Facebook & Instagram aren’t high-quality.”

  1. Why is that?
  2. How can we change that?

In order to get to the bottom of this, worked together as a three-part team to make a joint pilot project out of it: the “Facebook Sales Pilot”. We, SNOOK digital Frankfurt GmbH (advertising agency), the RKG Rheinische Kraftwagengesellschaft mbH & Co. KG (car dealership) and as our third party, none other than Facebook itself.
