We have the ability to customize audience segments based on the Automotive Enthusiasts.


Audience Targeting

Web & In-App

Our Automotive audience is over 50MM Canada wide and growing.


Vehicle Owners by make and model


Automotive Intenders for new and used; leased, and purchased


EV Auto Audience or Green Consumers


Auto Enthusiasts, Industry Executives, Aspirational Automotive Audience Etc.




Chameleon Digital’s Auto Owner Audience is comprised of several different data sets that identify users who have shown behaviors and habits of someone who is an automobile owner. Chameleon will capture the mobile device IDs of users who have recently visited the following centers throughout Canada.


Gas Stations

(Esso, Shell, Husky, etc.)


Oil Change Centers


Auto Repair & Service Centers

Active Green & Ross


Windshield Repair Centers

Apple Auto Glass


Car Wash Stations


New & Used Tire Centers


Car Performance Shops

Tints, Sound Systems, etc.




The Auto Intender Audience will capture the mobile devices regularly seen visiting New & Used Car Dealerships throughout Canada.

We will further quantify this audience by looking to remove the Employees of these dealership locations by looking at Common Daytime Location trends including, (how often they visit, dwell times, etc.)

Recency also factors into the audience as we understand how long the consumer auto journey is from start to purchase.



Where they are considering and their options to buy



When they are actively considering purchasing



Where they cross the t’s and dot the i’s



Where they may refer other customers to you and purchase again in the future




Using Chameleon’s precision polygoning technology we can identify Electric Vehicle owners by capturing those mobile device ID’s seen at EV charging stations either at home, work or on the go.

When a user parks at one of the identified EV charging stations throughout Canada, the average charge time is about 20 minutes in length. This is an ideal opportunity to capture this audience and serve mobile advertising to these devices while they are sitting in their vehicles, most likely on their mobile devices.

We can observe those who interact and measure how many of these devices visit a location after being exposed to the media via the Foot Traffic Attribution Reporting. (FTA)

Also induced in this audience, would be devices seen specifically at Electric Vehicle Dealerships such as Tesla.




Within the Automotive Enthusiasts Audience, we will capture ID’s seen in attendance at various Automotive Events & Shows that occur locally or all over the world.

  • Canadian International Auto Show (Toronto)
  • Vancouver International Auto Show (Vancouver)
  • LA Auto Show (Los Angeles)
  • Manila International Auto Show (Manila)
  • European Motor Show (Brussels)
  • Montreal International Auto Show (Montreal)

Looking at the collection of devices captured at these events, we can then isolate those devices  who were seen at these events, such as the CIAS and then went to a dealership afterwards.

At Chameleon Digital we have the ability to customize audience segments based on the Automotive Enthusiasts.


Third Party


Third Party Audience Segments will be layered in to ensure maximum reach and to gain access to other additional in-depth segments related to an Automotive Owner, Intender & Enthusiast.

We will retarget and serve messaging to


Users who browse content such as articles and blog posts who demonstrate an interest in Automotive / Cars.


Users who are at least twice as likely to purchase at retailers of auto parts, tires, interior finishes, cleaning supplies, motor oil and engine liquids and non-essential products such as seat covers or radar detectors within the next 30 days.

Automotive Case Study

With the intent to drive awareness about Vehicle Brand X, Client participated in the Manila International Auto Show (MIAS).

The objective was to increase foot traffic at the venue.

Using Chameleon’s mobile location data pool helped the client build its audience segment and target them in real-time, thereby increasing walk-ins at the MIAS.

The Manila International Auto Show (MIAS) is among the biggest and most awaited auto shows exhibiting innovative technology, and latest models of premium auto brands. Since it is very popular among auto enthusiasts and auto buyers, client was looking to unveil its new car – even before its launch in the market.

Client wanted to create buzz around the unveiling and reach out to its potential customers by providing them a first-hand experience of the car. The main challenge was trying to reach their target consumers at the right time and place to drive foot traffic to the MIAS.

With the objective to drive their target consumers to the event, targeting through mobile devices was the go-to-channel for the client as this is the only medium for real-time audience targeting. Using location-based data, a robust audience segment of auto enthusiasts was built from the consumers seen in and around client & competitor dealerships.

With this historical behavior, mobile ads displaying the image of the brand-new vehicle were shown to this curated segment over smartphone & tablets two days prior to the MIAS.

In addition to this, the mobile ads were also shown to consumers near the event venue. The consumers attending the event were also targeted during the auto show.

To measure the effectiveness of the campaign, a Foot Traffic Attribution Study was conducted to analyze user engagement and number of walk-ins after they were exposed to the ad.

The research revealed the following results:

21% of the users who engaged with the ads were found to be at the auto show. User ad engagement was higher during the days of the event as compared to pre-event days. While the content consumption by the users was high between 12 pm – 3 pm, the footfall increase for the event were seen in the night between 7 pm – 10 pm.

Higher engagement was seen amongst youth and working professionals
