Kapten – formerly Chauffeur Privé – is a French VTC brand created in 2011. Today, it has 3 million users. Determined to conquer Europe, the brand has rebranded to be able to launch into new territories. Here are a few important figures about the Kapten company:
  • + 300 employees;
  • 50,000 partner drivers;
  • 300K monthly installs in 2019.
To strengthen its expansion strategy, the company has decided to collaborate with Addict Mobile to expand its presence in Europe.  

CONTEXT & OBJECTIVES

  • Start date: December 2018
  • Sources: Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Google, Apple Search Ads, Ad networks, Pinterest
  • OS: iOS + Android
  • Objectives:
    • Support Kapten in the opening of new European markets and in its expansion: United Kingdom (London) & Portugal (Lisbon & Porto).
    • Generate new downloads with a “first ride” approach.
 

ADDICT MOBILE ACTION

Addict Mobile’s mission was to maximize volumes to generate more “first rides”. This approach required several actions.
  • 2,400 campaigns launched: we have chosen to launch as many sources and targeting as possible in order to generate high volumes while identifying the most profitable combinations.
 
  • Testing and iterations on the different types of optimization (installs, registrations, first ride) to allow us to achieve the objectives set.
  • + 100 unique targeting tested for each city: similar or demographic audiences, targeting by areas of interest related to Kapten’s activity, behavioural audiences and strategic keywords.
  • First of all, associate acquisition with retargeting: we have set up both acquisition campaigns to reach new users and re-engagement campaigns to reactivate non-registered users.

  • Launch of a “web to app” strategy thanks to the purchase of keywords on the Web to redirect to the store via a dedicated landing page.
 
  • +700 visuals tested: regular production and refreshments of visuals to meet the specificities of each market: language, routes, promotional codes, messages or even the app competitive advantages which change according to the country (price, quality, ethics).
    • Thanks to our in-house studio, Addict Mobile has produced more than 700 visuals (stories, banners, squares, vertical layout, search, videos). The dedicated account manager team was thus able to perform many A/B tests to identify the most efficient visuals. This work allowed Kapten to test new concepts and refine its new graphic identity to adapt to mobile phones.
