In-Car Offers: The Future of Digital Promotions

What if there was a way to directly contact your on-the-move customers and give them an exclusive incentive to come to your business? With 4screen's brand new In-Car Offer ad format, now you can!

In-Car Offers are an innovative promotional ad format that allows businesses to deliver exclusive promotions, discounts, and deals directly to their customers through the in-car screen.

Using thousands of unique vehicle data points, this responsive technology ensures that your message reaches ideal customers who are both nearby and in need of your services. And because 4screen is integrated into the car's digital interface, all promotions are done with the highest safety and privacy standards.

How Do In-Car Offers Work?

When planning a journey, drivers will either enter a destination query in the search bar or seek out the the exact location on their in-car screen.

Traditionally, the information that popped up was quite limited and primarily used for navigational purposes.

However, with 4screen’s new driver interaction platform, your business can now provide a wealth of real-time information that not only enhances the driver’s journey but also delivers a brand-new retail experience for your target customers.

This includes:

  • Your logo
  • Star ratings and reviews
  • Special services and amenities – WiFi, available restrooms and parking
  • Branch phone number - with the ability to call directly from the car screen
  • And an exclusive In-Car Offer

With an In-Car Offer campaign, you now have the chance to secure new business by providing a unique promotion that drivers can redeem at your location, giving them a practical, tangible reason for choosing you as their ideal destination.

And with 4screen's full analytics suite, your campaign's success is trackable with a variety of metrics:

  • Click Rate: Did your potential customer click to see the In-Car Offer?
  • Navigation Rate: Did they select your location as their destination?
  • Store Visits: Did they visit your location?
  • QR Code Tracking: Did they use the QR Code of the In-Car Offer to avail of the promotion?

How Effective Can In-Car Offers Really Be?

Relying on your location to drive revenue is no longer enough. And while static OOH advertising, such as billboards, can be good for raising brand awareness, they simply are not responsive enough to push critical purchase decisions.

That is where dynamic In-Car Offers come into play. Now, you can connect with your audience at their highest decision-making moment while delivering that final value-adding incentive as well.

The Results Are In

Across all verticals, businesses are enjoying the success and safety of this brand-new marketing and promotional channel:

Supermarkets like Denns BioMarkt have seen incredible results by launching an in-car marketing campaign that provided an exclusive breakfast deal for drivers on their morning commute.

Totalenergies saw first-hand the benefits of the In-Car Offer campaign when they provided a unique discount to on-the-go customers for their car wash services.

And it's not just the businesses that appreciate In-Car Offer campaigns. Recent studies have shown that 80% of drivers are also in favor of receiving sponsored in-car offers and content 

 In-Car Offer Campaign Ideas

4screen's Branded Pins and Sponsored In-Car Search put your business on your customer's map like never before. But when paired with the In-Car Offer campaign, you now have a significant driver of new business and revenue.

And the fact that you can update your car screen profile within minutes means you can communicate your latest offers, deals, and promotions in real time with proper context.
