Facebook Highlights Digital Air Strike’s Click to Marketplace Advertising Helping Increase Consumer Sales During COVID-19

Digital Air Strike | May 22, 2020

  • Facebook showcases Digital Air Strike's impressive results leveraging Dynamic Click to Marketplace Advertising.

  • Digital Air Strike, the leading consumer engagement technology company, is helping businesses leverage increased traffic on social media during COVID-19.

  • The company's social media marketing and advertising technology on Facebook during shelter-in-place mandates are delivering new customers, increased website traffic, and more sales to businesses across the country.


Digital Air Strike was chosen by Facebook for a limited beta test to determine whether dynamic ad clicks to Facebook Marketplace, instead of to a dealer's website, increased leads. The pilot business, Brown's Toyota of Glen Burnie in Maryland, saw four times more impressions, 1.5 times more views and a 33% reduction in cost per view. The results are so compelling Facebook turned them into a case study for the Click to Marketplace ads.

We've found that businesses that understand and leverage the power of social media are better able to reach their consumers during the pandemic. Even in states with the strictest pandemic-related restrictions, people are still shopping and buying online. Businesses that target consumers on Facebook to build their pipeline, explain new protocols, and advertise adjusted hours of operations, safety measures and delivery options, are getting excellent results.

- Alexi Venneri, co-founder and CEO of Digital Air Strike


Digital Air Strike's team is seeing great results across the country, including with DeLillo Chevrolet in Huntington Beach, California. The program included posting COVID-19 announcements on DeLillo Chevrolet's Facebook page, responding and engaging with comments on the posts, and alerting the business to new comments and questions so they could quickly follow up and sell cars. The dealership saw a more than 100% increase in website traffic, more than doubled the number of new customers who visited the dealer's Facebook page and website and sold several vehicles from the new Facebook traffic. 

In Google Analytics, we have noticed a surge in Facebook visits to our website. This all came from the posts that Digital Air Strike has been doing for us. I highly recommend Digital Air Strike for social media marketing.

- Bill Demarest, marketing manager/customer relations for DeLillo Chevrolet


Along with consistent, creative and engaging social posts, Digital Air Strike provides targeted, double opt-in advertising options that help dealers reach interested car buyers on Facebook. Jacksonville CDJR in Jacksonville, Florida, sold the highest number of cars in the company's history in March 2020. The dealer advertised using Digital Air Strike's VDP Power Social Program which directs car buyers to vehicle detail pages (VDP) on the dealership's website. The ads first focused on used cars and then on new cars since the first campaign was so successful.

"Digital Air Strike's VDP Power Social Program was the reason my used car sales went through the roof," said Ken Kovacs, owner and General Manager of Jacksonville CDJR (Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram). "That's why I doubled my social advertising budget and decided to focus on attracting new car buyers even during these unusual times. Digital Air Strike is super responsive too."

Digital Air Strike's Facebook ads campaign for Toyota Sunnyvale in Sunnyvale, California also saw great results. In just two weeks, they sold seven vehicles, had 600 website clicks, saw over 130,000 impressions, and reached almost 17,000 people.

Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg said in a March 18th call with journalists that people across the country had increased the time they spent using Facebook-owned apps by more than 70% since the lockdown began. That number has only risen as more people have been mandated to stay home across the U.S.

Social media marketing is part of Digital Air Strike's Virtual Retailing Program which helps businesses adapt to the new requirement of consumers needing responsive new ways to be able to research, shop and transact from home. Along with social media, Virtual Retailing also includes the use of video lead response, AI, automation, text messaging, and training teams on new safety measures. Digital Air Strike is offering their Video Logix solution at no cost for 30 days to all businesses that need help during the pandemic.

Walmart takes another page from Amazon, reports 95% increase in U.S. advertising sales

Walmart | August 19, 2021

Walmart reported a 95% increase in its U.S. advertising sales in the second quarter, and said its number of active advertisers rose more than 175%, as more companies and brands paid to advertise their products to its customers, online and in stores. The advertising boom was just one of the factors that gave Walmart’s earnings call a familiar ring to anyone who’s tuned into Amazon’s business. “The phrase ‘serving customers’ has traditionally meant one thing at Walmart,” said Walmart CEO Doug McMillon on the earnings call, referring to traditional retail sales. “But today It includes serving marketplace sellers, our advertising partners, and those that want to use our fulfillment services or proprietary software.” Walmart’s actual ad sales numbers weren’t large enough to require disclosure in its earnings report Tuesday, but Amazon has shown the value of this approach. Reporting its own second quarter earnings, Amazon said its “Other” category, which primarily consists of advertising, generated $7.9 billion in sales. That was up 87% from the prior year. It’s part of a larger trend of Amazon making more money doing things other than selling products. UBS analyst Michael Lasser pressed Walmart executives on the call to reveal more about the scale and potential of their ad business, without much success. Lasser estimated that advertising sales in e-commerce represent about 5% to 10% of GMV, the gross merchandise value of products sold. He surmised that Walmart’s ad business might be in a nascent phase, perhaps 1% to 2% of GMV, and asked if ad dollars are coming at the expense of other revenue from Walmart’s vendors. Brett Biggs, Walmart chief financial officer, didn’t confirm or deny Lasser’s speculation but spoke to the larger direction of Walmart’s advertising business. “We rebranded the business from Walmart Media Group to Walmart Connect last year, and that was just to make sure that it was very clear that this opportunity is going to help us connect buyers, sellers, suppliers and customers all together in a way that’s accretive to the customer experience,” Biggs said. “And as long as we do that, I will remain very, very bullish on the growth potential in this business.” Overall, Walmart reported total quarterly revenue of $141 billion, up 2%, with profits of $4.3 billion for the second quarter of its 2022 fiscal year, ended June 30, 2021. For the quarter, Walmart’s e-commerce sales growth in the U.S. dropped back into the single-digits as more customers returned to physical retail stores. Its U.S. e-commerce business grew 6% in the second quarter, to about $11 billion. That compared to year-over-year growth of more than 90% a year ago, at the height of the pandemic. But looking at the long-term trends, Walmart was able to maintain much of the e-commerce headway that it made during the past year. Its U.S. e-commerce sales are up 103% compared to two years ago. E-commerce now represents more than 11% of the company’s $98.2 billion in U.S. net sales, vs. 6% of its $85 billion in U.S. net sales for the same quarter two years ago. McMillon said Walmart wants to reach a point where it’s “completely indifferent” as to where and how customers shop, in terms of its revenue and profits. “I think some people view stores these days as boring,” McMillon said. “We don’t.”
