Ready to target in-market shoppers with social media ads that highlight your in-stock vehicles? Vehicles those shoppers have already researched, searched or viewed – and that are sitting on your lot right now? You can, when your dealership uses dynamic creative to automatically pull vehicle images, payments, descriptions, etc. and create the right social ads. And then deliver them to right shoppers. 

The evolving terms and technology surrounding dynamic creative can be a bit confusing (but there’s no mistaking the results). That’s why we’re delving into:  

  • Facebook dynamic creative social ads that do the work for you. 

  • Facebook social ads with dynamic creative for automotive – or Facebook automotive inventory ads? 

  • Social media success stories – other dealerships’ results for now, but in the future, we’d like to hear about (or help be a part of) your digital marketing wins!   


Social Ads: Get Dynamic with Creative  


It all starts with dynamic creative. This technological breakthrough takes multiple ad components – photos, APR, videos, specials, etc. – and, based on specific parameters, automatically generates and optimizes social media ads across audiences. Dynamic creative makes it easy to target prospects, and retarget customers who’ve already visited your dealership’s website, with inventory they’ve shown an interest in. It’s a type of digital marketing that’s proven to be mighty effective. 


Which Is It: Dynamic Creative for Automotive or Automotive Inventory Ads? 


As much as “Facebook social ads with dynamic creative for automotive” trips off the tongue, Mr. Z. and company decided to rebrand with a more manageable name: “Facebook automotive inventory ads.” (That’s 23 fewer characters, in case anyone’s counting.) There’s no difference between the two. 

But there is a difference between dynamic creative and Facebook automotive inventory ads, although they’re often used interchangeably, even here. The latter was designed specifically for auto dealerships and is optimized for people who are in-market for a vehicle. Auto inventory ads offer features that general dynamic ads don’t, including: 

  • Retargeting for new and used car inventory with real-time availability and pricing  

  • Prospecting for automotive intenders through lookalike audiences 

Plus, dealerships can upload their entire vehicle inventory with auto specific fields like make, model, body style and fuel type. Ads are then automatically generated with the most compelling inventory to in-market car buyers – driving them to vehicle detail pages, lead submission forms and more.
