Here are just a few highlights to get you started:

  • Use the right keywords. Craft more engaging copy with high-performing keywords by using Taboola Trends to find strong engagement keywords, competition keywords, and opportunity keywords
  • Make it local. Personalize your ad creatives with localized elements like license plates, street signs, flags, neighborhood shops, and monuments. In fact, images with clear shots of license plates perform well on the Taboola platform.
  • Highlight convenience. Top ad titles invite readers to discover fast and accessible services to improve their automotive experiences. For example: “Make Your EV’s Battery Last Longer By Doing This (It’s Simple).”
  • Include colorful visuals that pop. Images of brightly colored vehicles in red, gold, and blue make a big impact in performance and tend to catch our users’ attention.
  • Hit the right word count. For your landing page, we recommend crafting a headline of 10-15 words and copy of 600-1,000 words, divided by 1-3 section headers. Also, end it with a clear call to action like “Select your preferred car model.”
