Results and Effectiveness
The vehicles we offered achieved an average click rate of 500 clicks, until the moderators of the specific pages removed them from the site. Depite their removal, we managed to attract the attention of more than 50,000 prospective customers – and that through an action, which did not cost a cent.

Creative Execution
We started a guerrilla campaign within Austria’s most widely known online car sales market and offered Austria’s best-loved cars for prices that can only be dreamt of. For example, someone looking for a new Ford Mondeo found such a vehicle offered in the very first ad - however, in the scale 1:43.

Insights, Strategy & the Idea
The Vienna Trade Fair not only stages the Model Makers Fair but also the Vienna Auto Show. Curiously, the target group car enthusiasts and model makers are surprisingly similar. Why not take advantage of this overlap, as the advertising budget for the Vienna Model Makers Fair is exceptionally tight?
