01 | OVERVIEW

Driving new sales in the UAE by using Click-to-Messenger campaign

talabat used ads that click to Messenger and automated messages in Messenger targeting the UAE, to attract new customers to make their first order.

With the use of automated messages built by BrandBastion and a limited time offer, talabat was able to connect 1-on-1 with new customers.

By opening up direct conversations between its business and customers, talabat was able to offer a great user experience, send timely reminders and re-engage with users beyond the first ad impression.

04 | THEIR SOLUTION

Discovery and Re-Engagement via Messenger

talabat set up ads that click to Messenger and a Messenger bot flow built by BrandBastion to open up direct conversations with their customers. A split test was set up using two campaigns using identical creatives, targeting, and budget, and both offered a discount coupon.
