Johannesburg panel beaters Dent & Scratch Repairs opted for a focused approach when partnering with Street Network as they recognised the value and impact of a high-frequency campaign.
The campaign ran on all nine bus shelters along Bram Fischer Drive, taking in the suburbs of Randburg, Blairgowrie, Ferndale, Linden and Robindale. In this way, Dent & Scratch leveraged the power of frequency and its impact on recall and engagement, with the campaign reaching approximately 430,000 people and delivering around 8.9 million impacts, thanks to an average frequency of 21.
Jonathan Everest, Head of Sales at Street Network said, ‘Frequency drives online search, mobile engagement and campaign recall from other media such as TV, and this can have a big impact on top and bottom funnel sales drives. You can reach more people more often, target the consumers most likely to be interested in your brand, drive consumer action, and optimise reach and frequency at a relatively low cost.’
Dent & Scratch wanted to engage with consumers who regularly use Bram Fischer Drive for their daily commute, or who live in the surrounding areas, with the thinking being that a customer looking for a panel beating, auto detailing and a vehicle sales service would be more likely to look for something relatively close to home, or with the convenience of being on one’s daily commute route.
‘Bus shelters are positioned to catch the attention of consumers on their daily commute,’ said Everest. ‘In this case, they were close to the point of purchase (Dent & Scratch) for those consumers looking for a conveniently-located panel beater, whilst also attracting high levels of brand awareness among consumers using Bram Fischer Drive every day.’
In this way, Street Network and its collection of bus shelters was able to assist Dent & Scratch in meeting two objectives: the almost-immediate driving of a purchasing decision for those with a pressing need for a panel beater nearby, and the raising of awareness of the Dent & Scratch Repairs brand.
