Brief & Objectives

Motomatch approached Ruby Digital to assist the brand in becoming a market leader in the online car sales (new and used) industry. In addition, their objectives were to generate subscription leads from dealerships, attract customers to the platform, as well as increase overall brand awareness and online presence

When Motomatch came to us, they were experiencing low site traffic and low SERP (Search Engine Results Page) rankings due to the high competition of the motor vehicle industry and needed to generate more leads from consumers using the platform and dealerships subscribing. Furthermore, they had little to no organic growth on their social media platforms

While their offering was a unique venture in the South African market, very few people were aware of the brand and its unique selling points (USP).


Given that the competitive nature of the motor vehicle industry requires a very strategic approach, we developed paid social media and organic reach campaigns that directed more resources toward value-added content.

The primary goal of our strategy was to increase conversions in order to more effectively drive dealer signups and, more importantly, customer vehicle listings. A secondary goal was to raise brand and platform awareness, as well as increase responsiveness and educate the audience on how Motomatch works. A tertiary goal would be to increase brand authority in order to convert customers (mostly returning dealers) into platform advocates through engagement and organic testimonials via comments and @mentions.

Our Solution

  • We achieved Motomatch’s objective by identifying key performance indicators for measuring Conversions and Awareness, and developing a reputable social media presence.
  • Conversions: We actively drove customers and dealers to the website by directing them to the platform link to sign up, list their vehicle, or learn more about the platform and its offerings.
  • We optimized Facebook ad campaigns for customer listings and dealer signups and tracked this growth by measuring various conversions and trackable events, with the focus being on achieving buying or selling customer’s vehicle submissions.
  • Posts were optimized for link clicks with engaging posts to encourage click throughs to the website.
  • Awareness: We continued to grow the brand and create awareness for the platform, whilst continually expanding its reach.
  • Posts were optimized and targeted for increasing reach and growing awareness by creating value-adding posts to increase shares and thereby further increase reach.
  • We continuously grew Facebook followers and likes on a monthly basis by creating value-adding posts and engaging with any questions platform users may have, thereby improving brand authority and retention.
