In-house Social Advertising Team powered by Tech
So what led to the collaboration between ANWB and The Next Ad?
With such an extensive and impressive portfolio it’s crucial for ANWB to maintain a clear overview of all of their online campaigns. Initially, many of their business lines followed their own Social Advertising strategies. In order to improve their control over the quality and performance of their Social campaigns, ANWB’s main objective was to get and organise all of their Social Advertising campaigns and knowledge in-house and centralised within one tool only.
By doing so, the company could collect valuable and actionable insights that would help them better understand their markets and customers. The technology, services and expertise of The Next Ad would undoubtedly serve as the perfect solution to ANWB’s challenge of achieving their goal in the most efficient and cost-effective manner.

Technology and Expertise
The Next Ad’s Digital Marketing Consultants sat down with Marjolein Vendrig, Communications Manager at ANWB, to discuss the company’s current and desired situation, after which a custom-fit strategy was developed through the use of The Next Ad’s platform.
This included taking a critical look at ANWB’s target audiences and the allocation of their advertising budget, as well as building a full-funnel advertising strategy. Check out our blog discussing how to build the perfect funnel for your advertising strategy to learn more!
First, a campaign focused on increasing ANWB’s brand awareness and website visitors was launched. Through the use of The Next Ad’s optimisation features, the campaign managed to efficiently save on the initially-set budget! This allowed ANWB to automatically invest their budget in their best-performing audiences.
Using the gathered data from this campaign as input to gain a deeper understanding of ANWB’s audiences and their buying behaviour, a retargeting campaign had been set-up. This was aimed at improving both ANWB’s engagement and the conversions of their qualitative leads.
Another feature that made this partnership so successful was definitely (but not limited to!) our Ad Scheduler.
We all know it: timing. is. everything. That’s exactly why The Next Ad’s Ad Scheduler helps ANWB determine the optimal time for their ads to be launched run in and out on pre-set times with the ease of only a few clicks.
With this all together, ANWB is well on their way to managing all of their Social Advertising activities from one platform!
