An interactive tablet app campaign for luxury car brand Audi across The Sydney Morning Herald, The Age and Brisbane Times has achieved strong results in advertising effectiveness, according to a new study.

Conducted by research firm TNS, the study found the campaign delivered strong results, with consumers exposed to the Audi TT campaign experiencing an uplift of 20 per cent points for ad recall. This recall increased to 33 per cent points for those that owned a luxury car.

Designed to support the pre-launch of the new Audi TT model in the Australian market, the campaign aimed to raise awareness among potential customers and showcase the luxury car’s key features using animated creative.

Full page rich media and in-article ad formats appeared across the tablet apps of the three mastheads. The ads utilised the tablet’s screen orientation capabilities so when viewed in portrait, users could tilt the device from side to side with animated creative showcasing the Audi TT’s exterior design. When viewed in landscape, the ad showed the car’s interior design, giving users the feeling they were seated inside the car.

The TNS study also revealed:

  • More than half (55 per cent) liked Audi TT’s use of innovative creative that utilised the tablet device’s screen orientation. Those exposed experienced a significant uplift of 23 per cent points, which increased to 43 per cent points for those that owned a luxury car
  • The campaign successfully moved the audience through the purchase funnel, with research and purchase intent experiencing strong directional uplifts, up 31 per cent and 45 per cent respectively after exposure
  • The Audi TT ad also saw strong results in brand attribute measures. After campaign exposure the audience was twice as likely to agree that the Audi TT model is a car for ‘people like them’ and that they would recommend the car more than other brands

Fairfax Media mobile commercial manager Stewart Heys said: “The study demonstrates that with the combination of engaging creative and the right audience on Fairfax Media’s tablet app properties, Audi was able to meet its objectives for the TT pre-launch.

“Fairfax is investing heavily in mobile products yet there are very few smartphone or tablet ad effectiveness studies available in the market. Fairfax is committed to building advertiser confidence in mobile advertising by working with partners like TNS to develop these much-needed effectiveness studies.”

Audi’s general manager marketing communications, Kevin Goult said: “Audi is a brand driven by innovation in everything we do. It’s important that we are also looking for engaging and creative solutions in our advertising and this campaign is a strong example of that. The research results clearly demonstrate that tablet advertising delivers a powerful branding impact. The study has provided us with great insights on purchasing consideration and intent and we will be applying these learnings to future planning.”
